    Buzzsaw. I prefer the Big Cheese he uses live.
     
  4. i think id quite like that, if it does what it says i know how it will sound before i get it. that way theres no alarms and no surprises

    Looks pretty cool.
    What about the price, though?

    GGG has a kit for a lot less and it's the same circuit. Very easy build. I have one and love it, paired next to my Big Cheese it come close.
     
  8. I knew of the GGG kit but never heard much about it. Good to know it sounds good. The Wilson made version looks cooler though.:ninja:


    Also, I feel like I should mention that I only bring up Radiohead because this fuzz circuit might not be of much interest to as many bassists if not for CG. :smug:

    Also, this pedal will make you sound just like Radiohead if you pair it with a Boss RE-20 and a P-bass. You don't even need to know how to play really. :bag:
     
  9. Well, he actually uses the FY-2 live. The Big Cheese and FY-2 are for different songs. He uses the FY-2 on Exit Music and Myxomatosis. He uses the Big Cheese on National Anthem. I'm sure there are other examples, but those are what I can think of off hand.

    I have the Fredric Effects Unplesant Companion which is on my board at the moment, it's a slightly modded circuit to allow for a volume boost as I think the original cranked is just about unity.

    Also it's in a much smaller box that might suit most and it is fun playing those radiohead songs on. It's cheaper too.

    I should have my new audio interface this weekend so I'll finally start hammering out the clips again.

    Isn't the Big Cheese a clone of something?
     
  11. I thought it was an original Lovetone design. The OLC Chunky Cheese is a clone of the Big Cheese though.

    Big Cheese is based on Fuzz Face.

    ...and here's a variation on a theme. The pedal on the right replaces the stock Shin-Ei Companion Fuzz tone circuit with a big muff tone control. Result: many more tones!
