    I was wondering what distortions or fuzz's you would suggest to try and create the tone in one of my songs. i know that its a blend of a guitar amp and bass.. so im looking for something that will blend well with a clean(ish) bass sound.

    so far im using a tc electronics vintage bass distortion which features a blend knob and kinda sounds similar when you use the boost function but that makes the pedal pretty noisy and can feedback sometimes...any ideas?

    its the first song that plays www.myspace.com/attackattackband

    its called this is a test

    any help would be appreciated

    First of all, fantastic sound, I like the band :)

    Second, what you might want to look into is the Bass Big Muff or a big muff clone. Atleast that is what it sounds like to me.

    Here is a good site by TB's own Grygrx that is a great site for fuzz. Check out the reviews and see what you like.

    www.bassfuzz.com

    Cheers :)

    Cool, thanks man.

    I'll have a check out of that site.. i know that the blended distortion came from the bass going through an orange guitar amp head.. obviously not going to happen live due to lack of roadies and money!!

    keep the suggestions coming in!

    thanks!
     
  4. The Malekko Assmaster is a harmonic fuzz with a blend. It has plenty of features to dial in practically any tone
