I always think it's cool when someone can get the sound of an effect pedal withoug actually using that effect pedal. So, how can I screw around with my amp to get the sound of a Fuzz Box without going out and buying one?

Example?

Why not just buy a fuzz pedal? It's kind of hard to make an amp clip like a couple transistors in a box.

I don't think anything can do the sound of a good fuzz pedal... other than a good fuzz pedal.

ok, first you need a tube amp with its master volume at 10. then you need to slice the speaker cones with a knife.....since that what a fuzz pedal is essentially trying to emulate...

or you can just buy a fuzz.

dont really slice your speakers, thats just not smart.

You ever hear the original you really got me by the kinks? That's what dave davies was rockin. I believe the beatles also did this to some of their amps as well.

Sometimes Davies said he took a knife, a razor, a screw driver- etc.

Anyway you look at it, it was just a ****ed up speaker cone.

Also: Get a Matamp. They're like, fuzz. In a box. That amplifies the signal. So like an amp with a built in fuzz box.

Or, tun everything on your amp to ten.

I've heard that they plugged the guitar directly into the board and overloaded the solid state preamp to hell (on Revolution at least)
