Re: distortion, overdrive,fuzz,crunch,special sauce, secret goo

Rick, that OD 20 sounds cool, I wonder if that OCTAVE FUZZ is like the one 
loved on my Boss GT 5. That was a wicked fuzz! Listen to "Schizosphere" on 
my page. Of course I was using mucho other stuff with it.
Digitech does do some good models. My RP 250 has 13 fuzz/distortion models 
and what I like is that it has a seperate section for amp models so I can 
a say Rat or Arbiter Fuzz Face with a Twin or Boogie. Also the wahs and 
whammys are great,IMO. I am not saying it's like the real thing but it 
give alot of combinations. Those pedals from Digitech are no joke. I love 
Bad Monkey! Also the x series Digidelay is very nice.
UPDATE: My Fuzz Factory arrival date 1-2-09!
