    Here's a sloppy clip for you folks to ponder: what fuzzbox did I use to record it?

    The clip is called "mystery fuzz"

    This is just for fun, I'm not giving away any prizes but you WILL earn gloating rights in the fx forum if you can identify it

    I am also willing to answer "20 questions" style inquiries to help narrow it down.

    Let's play!

    it sounds along the lines of the TLSF....so maybe a super fuzz variant? mine can cop that tone.

    soooo.....is this something custom made by an independent builder, or stock from a big commercialized company?

    it is or was a commercial production effect

    not a superfuzz or sf variant

    Sounds like a clean blend, but the fuzz is too uninteresting to hold my attention further. :(

    Sounds square-wavey like the distortion section of the EHX Bass Micro Synth.

    Also sounds like there some sort of filter being applied very lightly.

    not a BMS

    not really a square wave distortion (not by design anyway)

    no external filters applied. no filters included in the effect, either
