Vintage Fuzz sound approximating the bass sound in the Love track posted here

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by geezerjpj, May 10, 2010.

  1. The fuzz is in there but only becomes prominent half way through and then gets boosted progressively higher.

    I'm looking for a fuzz that produces a sound like the one in the Arthur Lee track above...pretty mild but still square wave dirt with a lot of articulation that sits well in a mix...not stoner not too muffish.....60's freakbeat/psyche. I don't care about sustain so much as I play a lot of notes

    I was thinking of the Frantone Lo-Tone or Electronix Crossdrive(formerly Facedrive).

    In a previous post in another thread re bassfuzz.com I dissed grgryx questioning irrelevantly whether he played in a band or not. Apologies to grygryx... I was out of line...I was oh so obliquely/ineffectually trying to make the point that sometimes his reviews in my opinion lack detail as to how a pedal sits in a mix with guitars and drums.

    This is always my principal concern...ie how does an effect work in a band setting.

    your thoughts re the bass fuzz sound in the track above...thanks

    That sounds like a "spitty" or "splattery" fuzz.

    fOXX Tone Machine does that sound.

    If you want your fuzz to sit well in a mix, use an EQ after the fuzz to artificially boost any mids "cut" by the fuzz.
  3. What an unusual stereo setup...

    ahahah yeah i was thinking about the stereo sound lol.

    I can just about get that out of my EHX Tube Zipper. Its not quite as sputtery
  5. Sounds to me like either the fuzz that was available on a Versatone Panoflex amp or a post production effect from over driving the boost. I get a similar sound mixing a clean bass with a mildly driven Big Muff or Daddy-O.
