Which Fuzz Pedal for Chris Brown's Fine China?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by bradjonesbass, Mar 26, 2014.

  1. My R&B band is adding a bunch of newer material to the set list and this tune was on the list. A, KILLER bass line!!!! Took me a bit to get it down.
    B. I don't use effects - aside from envelope filters occasionally, a touch of compression sometimes and a little chorus when I play fretless - and have no idea how to get that sound. If you haven't heard the tune, go give it a listen. Help!!!

  2. Check out the Zvex Mastotron. It doesn't get a ton of love around here for some reason, but I can get that EXACT sound from it. It's one of my favorite pedals that I have, next to my Fuzzrocious Demon.

    A B:Assmater with both switches to the right, Ass at about 1:00, Bass at about 4:00, and Sensitivity at around 12:00 will cop it.
  4. This is indeed a killer bass line. Just spent 3 evenings learning it. It's the most I have learnt from a song in a long time.

    The two fuzzes I've used to play that song have been the Iron Ether Oxide and the Team Awesome Fuzz Machine with the gate on.

    Both sound good though I'd say the Oxide was closer to the album tone. There's a YouTube video of someone covering the song with the Oxide which would give you a good idea of how it sounds.

    EDIT: Found that video.

    You're going to need a fuzz with some good punch to really nail that tone.

    ;) :D
