New octaver fuzz for an Hendrix vibe. Suggestions?
« on: March 08, 2019, 05:25:59 PM »
Hi guys.
I am reworking my pedalboard in a Hendrix/Van Halen direction and i want an octaver fuzz.
Currently I have a Superfuzz (awesome) but it's too much. The first choice would an Octavia, but i'm not sure.
I don't have any experience with the Wyllie Moonrock, but i'm interested.

I'm open to suggestions. What do you think?

Start with the Octavia and then build all of the other ones.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

You know, I've softened my JHS-hater stance over seeing him do these blogs.  Very knowledgeable guy.

It should go without saying that the Retrograde and Wolfshirt featured on this site are both great examples of the effect, with the most  Hendrix-centric one being the Retro.  They're both cheap and easy builds without having to find unicorn-class parts, and both highly recommended.
