    I don't use a lot of dirt with my current band but I love using it feed other effects like my LPF or to be fed with octave down (or all 3!)

    I'm looking for some fuzz recommendations that'll play nicely with the rest of my board.

    Anything that's the gold standard here?

  2. Not sure it’s specifically what you want as it has a hint of octave up but the 3 leaf you’re doom is one of the best I’ve had that handles anything..

    Mastotron? Although you don't really need to feed it any additional lows. The switchable subs are huge. In parallel with an OC2 into an LPF, it's pretty great though. Adjustable gate and impedance too. Everything from raw silicon fuzz through to really spitty, gated synth sounds.

    Mastotron also has a nice vocal quality with an octave running into it. Still very gated and synthy, just beefy.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    I’m going to check it all out.

    Can the subs be turned off on the Mastotron by putting subs in the “1” position?

    TAFM and Oxide are great for diving downstream effects. Team Awesome! works best before an OD and Oxide best after OD, in my use. After that, it’s all good.

    Yes they can.

    However the fuzz loses quite a bit of low end presence on Sub 1 and Sub 2. I've had mine set to Sub 3 ever since I bought it because the other settings get a little thin. The character of the Fuzz tone stays the same though, synthy gated square wave tone, so even though you end up cutting lows the fuzz is certainly usable if you use your imagination.

    That's interesting what OD do you push with the TAFM?

    +1 for IE Oxide as it has specifically designed to work with the Xerograph, which is a low pass filter.

    Ta-da!!

    Or maybe the DOD Carcosa. I always felt that was one of the more well rounded bass fuzzes that was really affordable on the market today. And it absolutely clobbers in the mix.
