Blowtorch settings?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by zachoff, Sep 28, 2010.


  1. Just got a Blowtorch & played with it a bit last night. Got a tone that I think will work. Nice, sorta vintage (muffled) light fuzz...
    Vol: 2:00
    Bass: 12:00
    Mid: 12:00
    Treb: 9:00
    Blend: 3:00
    Gain: 9:00
    Torch is on...

    Anyone have some good settings? This pedal seems to give more of a synthy fuzz than anything & I found the settings above work to mitigate that. Anyway, any of you have further input?

    I haven't been able to get a single tone I liked out of this box.
    It seems well built and thought, I just can't stand how it sounds.
    Pretty much exactly the kind of distortion I dislike.

    Good settings you say?

    I would say OFF and completely removed from your pedalboard.

    Sorry guy, much luck to you - but like the previous poster, I found nothing usable or redeeming about this pedal at all. Everything just sounded like fart.

    I'll have to try your settings... I was happy last gig with the settings below:
    Vol: 9:00
    Bass: 12:00
    Mid: 1:30
    Treb: 11:00
    Blend: 12:00
    Gain: 3:30
    Torch: Off

    The Blowtorch tends to be a love it or hate it pedal it seems :D I love it- it's been my favorite fuzz for years. I go through the settings I use most often in my old Youtube demo of it:
