vegas thx for the free advertising man, I just stumbled across this thread
I sold the depth charge and went back to a swollen pickle. I use fuzz maybe 2% of the time. The pickle and the DC have plenty of sonic overlap to my ears...or at least enough that nobody is gonna notice and the real loud/real fast tunes they get used on. The pickle sounds damn good and it's 1/2 the price of the DC, so that's an easy call for an effect I use very rarely.
I can see the DC for the specific tone you're talking about though...it does have that "not smooth" quality compared to the pickle.
