I've been hunting for my "dream" fuzz for awhile now and I actually thought I had it, but sadness has crept in again. I've got a PE depth charge, which is one of the best sounding bass pedals I've used. The low end is perfect. All that said, it's not the perfect fuzz pedal for me. It's starting to feel like hunting the wumpus. The problem I'm having with the depth charge is as follows: I have two amps, one I use for at home practice and one I use for band practice. The sound produced using the same bass and effects chain is SIGNIFICANTLY different from Amp to Amp. My home practice amp is a Roland DB500. My "rig" is an Eden WT400/Schroeder 1210. Now the Eden/Schro is very bright and clean, with low end on command (which is great uneffected) while the DB500 seems to chop a little off the top end. Normally this isn't an issue, but testing fuzz pedals (and the PE in paticular) there is! Through the DB500 I can dial in either a raunchy "metal" fuzz or a more smooth rolling fuzz. The Eden leaves me with the inability to get that smooth/creamy because there is always the slight octave buzz lurking on the edges... I can't seem to dial it out without hurting my uneffected tone. So I guess in this paticular case clarity and high pitch reproduction is causing me pain. So I guess it's back to long lusty glances @ pedalgeek and extended evenings searching e-bay. The pedal has some great uses, but just not that lush creamy fuzz I long for... I needed to rant some, I was so sure I was done. I just kept getting angerier and angerier while testing yesterday (trying to figure out what was going on). I'm offically taking Fuzz w/uncontrolled octave introduction (Brassmaster Clones) off my lust list. Currently in my eye (in order): SIB Nick Nitro (on the way... via ebay) -NIX MI Audio Neo Fuzz Wooly Mammouth Chuck Systems Brown Dog gated fuzz. PS: I love my life, everyone should have such pressing problems.
