whats the least muddy most transparent fuzz pedal for bass
Well first off no fuzz is "trasparent" it would be against the point... But if you are looking for bass response check out Frantones Lo-Tone, David Willson has one... I am sure he'll be by soon...
I'm making the assumption that by 'transparent' you mean that it'll preserve the character of your bass sound i.e. your low end.
Chunk Systems Fuzz
Black Cat Bass Octave Fuzz
The Frantone sounded great on passive basses, but couldn't seem to handle the hot signal of my active basses.
The Chunk let's you blend original / fuzz signal to keep your bass low end. The fuzz itself wasn't that great.
Depth Charge is much more fuzzy, but can get raspy if you want it. I wouldn't call it transparent. People love it or hate it. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it
So far, the one that works best for me is the Black Cat Bass Octave Fuzz. It has the blend between original/driven signal, and has filter and harmonic switches which let you change the character of the fuzz sound. Sometimes I want a warm fuzzy sound (i.e. bass in chorus of Led Zep's 'No Quarter') and other times I want a real sawtooth type of sound to drive an envelope filter. I've been able to get this sort of versatility best out of the black cat.
That pedal... whoa...
Who makes that thing??
D*A*M a british boutique company. i had them custom make it for me.
