Re: OT: Fuzz

Hey there Mark S. and Chillyman...

I'm wondering if you can attach either of the expeds on the new Vox Floor
modeler to those delay params you're talking about? Possibly sweep delay
time and get foot control of the doppler/glissing stuff? Can you patch more
than one param to each pedal? The more I hear about this unit, the more I'm
ready to pop for one.

FUZZ: Yep... I'm a total addict. Currently I'm down to just my old
Prescription Experience and a GT-5, but ones lying around I really like are
my Boss BD-2 and OD2r, Very old but clean EH Big Muff, Lovetone Big Cheese.
I had the Fulldrive 2, but after getting the Boss BD-2 I can't go back. The
BD-2 can sound really warm, but still has the ability to get a real
full-range grind. I find light overdrive into my Experience really helps
it's sound as well.
