Larry Graham Fuzz

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by funky_bass_guy, Apr 12, 2005.


  1. Hey guys,

    I was wondering if you could tell me which pedal would give me the sound Larry Graham gets on song like Higher by Sly and the Family Stone? I really like the funky fuzz sound, is there an octaver behind it?

    Would I be able to get close with a Big Muff or an PD7?

    Cheers

    I think he used a Danelectro FabTone for distortion and a Mutron Octave divider (which can get fuzzy too).

    On the Sly recordings Larry used the fuzz built into his amp (Acoustic 360).
