which songs do you feel are accepted garage standards (ie louie louie, gloria) and what do you feel should be? i'll say the mummies' "planet of the apes" and the outsiders' cover of "summertimes…Continue
"Fuzzfaces are great too if you can find one-I had a box of them back in the 70's--Hendrix used them a lot-and as I'd read above-you can't go wrong with a Big Muff-especially the silver and black ones from the 70's-there is an…"
"i have built a couple kits with verying degrees of success. some dissapointments maybe due to the kits not being that great component quality and some due to builder error.
the kits from BYOC look pretty nice, especially the…"
"I stumbled on this when researching fuzz and, to my ears, the FZ-1A nails the "Satisfaction" sound almost as much as the original FZ-1 Keef used...

I'd never heard of NORTH EFFECTS until this post but the…"
"I don't have many fuzz pedals, but the Land of the Rising Fuzzz to me captures 60's fuzz. It's based on the shin-ei companion with a couple extras for you to tweak around with. I dialed in the guitar tone to the intro on…"
"I've found nothing beats a Fender Twin with shitloads of verb, a strat set to the bridge pick up & a nasty ratty splattery 60's fuzz..roll of the volume maybe just a tad on the guitars volume knob..heaven."

"No problem! The 'Rite' sounds really good, can't remember exactly what trannies he uses but they are silicon anyway. I reckon fuzzrites seem to be somewhat easier to clone than maestros, they seem more tolerant of different transistor…"
Thanks for the insightful input! Yeah you are right it does cost a lot to sound cheap. I've been on a quest for the right fuzz. I do love that mid-60's fuzz sound. I checked out North Effects…"
The original run of Maestros (the 3 volt and 3 transistor FZ-1) was from 62-65 where Gibson made roughly about 5000 of them. They didn't sell as Gibson had anticipated until Keef recorded 'satisfaction' with…"

"YEAH , EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT THE MOVIE. MY DOCTOR EVEN ASKED IF I'D SEEN IT. I DON'T KNOCK IT , I'M JUST NOT ON THE BANDWAGON. I'VE CERTAINLY READ PLENTY ABOUT RODRIGUEZ , AND COULD HAVE SEEN HIM FOR FREE A COUPLE OF…"
"Boy , if this had been available for (Ugh) viewing and (UGH!!!) listening in the 40's , The Axis powers would have imploded much faster , and The Allies would have won WWII without dropping the H- Bomb.
