Fuzz Factory thread (please keep all ff + f probe discussion here)
 
Hallo,

I'm setting this thread for all Fuzz Factory users.

What is the Fuzz Factory ?

Is Matt's main effect he uses in a lot of Muse songs. This pedal is a very special distorsion/fuzz pedal.

But Matt has this effect built in his 3 main Mansons guitars (black, silver and brocken mirror) and most recently the silver Bomber.

A lot of comments can be viewed here.

Where to buy the Fuzz Factory ?

Not many dealers sell this effect, but you can get in on Mansons shop (who makes Matt's guitars) for 209 But you might prefer to buy it in america as it's quite cheap, for example on musictoyz.com it's $ 229.95 (124 ) or on buzzfox $ 220

What are the ideal settings for a muse song ?

From the FAQ and Chris's post:

For songs like New Born and Bliss its best to set the Stab all the way, Drive no higher than 12:00, hardly any Comp and if you really can't stand a bit of hiss use the Gate.
For CE its best to have lots of Fuzz, this is a setting I like to use for CE and Muscle Museum Stab - 5:00 Drive - 5:00 Comp - 7:00 Gate Far enough to get rid of the hissing.

Plug in Baby: Radio Fuzz setting (7:00 10:00 12:00 12:00)

How can I integrate a FF to my guitar? Is it complicated?

You can do it yourself, or let Mansons do it: https://www.mansons.co.uk/workshop/prices

They don't look all that serious that web site :-/ and no information about international shipping.
On musictoyz the shipping is 10 $.

kuz 06-03-2004 08:25 PM

not necessarily, at music toyz it depends on the weight of the pedal. and the website must be a little serious, it has recordings of most of the pedals (and you can sorta play around with them too :) ). they tell you to contact them for the shipping price.

but yeah, your point is somewhat valid.

The fuzz factory is the most impressive and fun effect you'll find. Add some delay and the people around you will get nuts. Fun Fun!

Alysum 07-03-2004 08:55 AM

Do you have it ?

Here is a shot list of Muse songs I/we would like to know for the FF :

- Plug in baby
- New born
- Dead star
- Citizen erased
- etc...

Does anyone know what setting Matt has for the Drive and Stab ? (which he never changes, they con only be changed inside his guitar) :)

Krasnojarsk 07-03-2004 10:10 AM

Noone's ever released info about his internal trimpots...and if it's been done, I'd like to know.
I just have a question for all Fuzz Factory/Probe owners: will this pedal fill 'all your distortion needs', or do you use other dist pedals as well?

I'm planning to get a Fuzz Probe, just have to get some money (not much left now :) )

it will fill all your "fuzz needs", but it doesn't cover the whole distortion spectrum - you won't get cranked amp-ness out of it ie saturated power tubes etc.

Krasnojarsk 07-03-2004 10:48 AM

OK, cheers.

I used to use a russian big muff before the fuzz factory, but I don't really have any use for it now cos there is a setting on the FF that sounds muff-esque. I still use a marshall shredmaster as my smooth overdrive sort of distortion though.

Sebso 07-03-2004 05:14 PM

The Fuzz give you almost any sound, but because of my pickups (single) I cant' get loud harmonics, for example... on Citizen Erased, the Fuzz factory cant get those. But is just one song, so it's Ok, you always can use the amp distortion or any middle priced distortion pedal.

I strongly recommend the Fuzz Factory. (or de Fuzz probe).
