That Pedal Show

10 Ways To Make Fuzz Pedals Work For You – That Pedal Show

January 31, 2020

This is the audio to our video here:

Do you struggle to get usable sounds from fuzz pedals? Fear not – we take you through 10 things to try in order to find fun and inspiration from fuzz!

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

A warm welcome to you, sonic voyagers! This fine day we are minded to ask: is there a guitar effect more divisive than fuzz? That beautiful behemoth onslaught of savage square wave so beloved of noisemongers since the mid-1960s… or is it the wanton wrecking of all that is magnificent and majestic on our sacred six-string?

Whatever your position, we hope this video will offer some ideas with which you can go forth and fuzzify.

Enjoy the episode!
