would having this boost before the fuzz degrade the fuzz sound?
I'm not sure what you mean by degrade the fuzz sound. The boost will boost the input signal before the fuzz pedal, so if you boost too much, you'll clip the input on the fuzz and the sound could be pleasant or unpleasant depending on what you're after.
More details are needed, such as, active or passive bass? what amp and cab? what other effects are in the loop? Do you already own one or the other? Which are you seeking to add, and why?
These things are a big help, IE.... if I love a clipped fuzz pedal sound, of course i'm going to say it sounds great. However, you may hate a clipped fuzz sound, so my opinion is void.
its all passive. but running my muffeletta with boost when im on the black russian setting it sounds dead with low volume. other settings its fine?
how does it sound with moderate volume?
I love to hit muffs with cleanish boosters (Klon-type especially). Brings a lot of clarity out.
But then again I also love to hammer muffs (*giggle*) with loud distortions to make the muff clench up and compress.
ive got to try that.
There's another whole school of thought that says you should put a boost after your muff. That's one of the keys to David Gilmore's sound on a lot of early Floyd records. It helps to clarify anr concentrate the sound, with the right combination
