thankyou mr. loopool for yer kind words-
to the walker bros.
well not to cop out on yer scenario rick, as long as i have my trustee
<fender redknob dual showman head> w/ that 2nd channel-and some knob
twiddlin i get  clean boost, slight overdrive or ragin distortion-i dont
need no stinkin pedals :-)
but...for some just beautiful, fat, deep,dark fuzz i have found nothing 
beats the-<arbiter fuzzface> w/ those germanium <NKT-275> transistors just 
sizzlin...and since ivor arbiter sold his company to dallas musical
instruments in '68(dallas-arbiter fuzzface) its just harder'n'hell to find
these babees w/ original components. i feel very fortunate to be able to 
into the magic...
(and bill on that question about the <sparkledrive>-the literature talked
about its ability to "combine crystal clean w/ an overdrive circuit that
provides the same tone as vintage 808" i'm here to say it aint neccesarily
so-havent heard the 808 come out of that box-now if it had two outs-clean
and overdrive which you could then blend instead of it being internal, one
knob...dream on). i use the sparkledrive as a simple clean boost and it
works great-ferget the od.)
