    be interested to hear it for sure. Fran does some nice stuff, although I did prefer the original green lo-tone classic fuzz to the later white one.
    The green version was more 'evil' sounding.

    Anyone ever try the guitar sweet on the bass? How'd it sound? Might make a decent comparisson parellel....

    Is that like Big Muff for bass?

    The Sweet is a Big Muff clone, so one would assume that this is the case.

    According to Brian at http://www.supersoundmusic.com/ it's designed for over-the-top-rip-yer-head-off fuzz. He's got one in stock, but I haven't had the chance to try it out yet.

    Great place supersoundmusic by the way....good deals and a great guy.

    Back to the original topic.... :ninja:
  7. Looks cool. I'm still dying to try both this one and the Lo-Tone. So the Lo-Tone would be 'sweeter' sounding, not?

    I tried the the Bass Booster the other day; one hell of a redundant pedal that is... You could get a graphic EQ and get like 6 other frequencies for a lower price with it... Back on-topic now.
