    I just started playing again and want a fuzz pedal. I play in a Funk- Rock group an looking for a slow dragging fuzz. Any suggestions?

    I'd go with the Dirty Boy Bass Bully.

    A ton of people here have it, and I've never heard anything bad about it. It's relatively affordable, too.

    It's so worth it.

    The Dirty Boy Bass Bully is OK, but I like the Way Miniscule Shrunken Gherkin much better. It's a lot more slow and dragging.

    Yes, find a clip of the sound you want, provide some more specifics or do a search (or all three) before the peanut gallery drown you in their inanity.
  6. When I think slow and dragging fuzz it makes me think of Devi Ever. However, they may be the least funky pedals ever.

    When I think of dragging fuzz I think of the DNA Analogic Bass Dragger just because it has the word drag in its name. I've never actually seen one, let alone played one though. Maybe the OP should buy one and give us a review. This clip from the Bass Player review sounds pretty good actually.

    Oh and I'm trying to work on the suggestion in your sig, but I just don't know where to start.

  8. Hah, that was one of my favourite threads ever (up there with "Did you check the batteries?" and "Atoz, the new Mosh Girl") and I just couldnt pass up that quote.

    slow and dragging fuzz? just put a half shot battery in your current fuzz and it should drag/glitch.

    Time to use a phoenix down on this thread. Looking for a good analog fuzz to use on my board with my octaver and the Minifooger Analog Delay that I plan on purchasing, I assume that there has had to be a few gems released since this thread when dark, let me know please!

    Idiotbox cool buzz bass fuzz is the slowest one I own, and has a very deep brassy Oberheim Ob8 tone to it.
