Ok pedalheads, here's another "recommend me" thread. There are so many pedals out there and most of them are muff spins. Been watching a lot of video demos, but there's always another one to look at. So let me give you an idea what I'm looking for, and hopefully some of you guys will be able to take the "best tool for the job" approach and at least narrow it down for me. My 2nd Digitech X series BD crapped out. I'll never buy another Digitech anything. Now I need something better to replace it. To give you an idea of my tone - I was using the RAT type setting (center morph range) at about 2 oclock, almost into fuzz range. Never liked the Digi-fuzz so I stopped just before getting into that range. Tone knob about 1 to 2 oclock depending on the bass. Signal chain is bass -> compressor -> distortion -> EQ -> Ampeg. Before the Digi I was using a vintage RAT. Tried the RAT again, but it's too mushy on the attack and doesn't have enough gain where it counts. Not sure if I should be looking for a fuzz or a higain distortion... or something in between. Most distortion doesn't quite get there, and most fuzz is too washy or creamy to get the chainsaw / stump grinder tone. It has to keep the hard punchy attack with quick response on the leading edge of the envelope. Can't use something too bloomy or mushy/squishy. I play too fast for that type of fuzz. I need killdozer on the front with flames shooting out the back. Overall gainy throaty/grunty voice. More GRRR than fizz. A little frost on top without sounding "layered". Got it? Good, I'm glad that made sense. Most pedal demos I've been looking at seem to be either RAT or Russian Muff derived. And the rats are all squishy. I'm gonna need the mids on any Muff box. I don't know, I'm open to suggestions.
