That's true James - probably why I sold my first FF and Box of Rock not long after owning them. My Firehawk FX has a compressor thing and bunch of delays/ reverb, so I think those would do for now.

Probably need a Whammy though

What'd you think of that Kemper video? New amp for James?

Which setting on your snowball do you use for recording guitar?
I have it set on the first option, but if I see it start clipping, I'll change it to the second setting (-10 dB I think). I also get the hiss from high gain, but I think it's just cause I needed a noise suppressor maybe. I have no solutions for that yet sadly

Glad to hear it helped also! It's such a handy mic, especially at the price, got mine scratch and dent for 30 bucks.

Fwiw, the Fuzz Factory is closer to a modified Tonebender, with negative feedback on the first transistor like an LPB. This makes the input buffer work, allowing the negative ground pedal with PNP age trannies, which is also what makes it unstable and prone to squealing.

The noise mostly came from the dodgy fuzz setting I was using so it shouldn't happen much with other settings. $30 for it is a pretty good deal!

You'd probably be better off getting a decent overdrive or distortion pedal first, since the whammy and fuzz factory don't work well together.

I disagree. I run the FF into whammy and delay for instant Fury toanz. That said, I haven't had a ff on the board for a while.

Won't the whammy break anyway? Seems to happen to everyone. Especially Dom.

And for a second I thought "dodgy fuzz" was from the settings list. It's never too late to add it I guess.

You mean you have it taped on built into your guitar, right?

Genuinely still never owned a FF. Really want one but whenever I have money I just buy something else

Recently upgraded to Pro Tools from Logic as my last purchase.

I'm on my third mainboard for the whammy IV, so yeah. The WhammyWah XP is going strong still, and actually sounds better (shh, I know..).

And no, I no longer own any of the FF's built into guitars, and all the others are unboxed for various reasons, including the one that used to live in a certain SXC Stealth. RIP

With a whammy IV that sounds amazing.

It probably will break, but it can new born.

Nah, dodgy fuzz isn't on the list, the knobs were all set randomly in an attempt to get something good... it didn't work

I tried this list out yesterday, but after like 10 settings it all just sounded the same to me. Ears were buzzing.


Would it be a better idea to get a Whammy V/DT or a Wah Probe?


Also,

Soldanos and Oranges. They're completely different pedals.


Also, what happened to Witz? He'd love this. I don't know if he actually liked AC/DC, but I just know he had an SG, so he must have
