noticed if you
pan the solo, Iommi's original tone is in the right channel,
effected is in the left.

modular synth rigs (Keith Emerson, Walter Carlos, etc). There's
reason someone clever wouldn't have thought of using one for
guitar...especially after a fuzz pedal. Ring mods work better
square-ish waveform. But....on the Paranoid track, I think its
octave after a fuzz. The reg signal is panned one way, the
signal is panned the other.
sound to the sub-octave that I have...but using the neck P/U vice
bridge also adds something to the heaviness of it, I think.
Octavio, heavy fuzz, neck pickup...MAYBE a ring mod...but heavy

*horrible*. Listen to early Grand Funk Railroad....the first 2 or
albums. If he used more than 1 note at a time the thing would
freak out and emit this horrid noise. Sounds like Tony was
the guitar signal and sending the reg overdriven signal to one
and the effected signal to another. It may have even been done on
fly during mixing...I've read interviews that said they worked
less than ideal recording equipment early on.
that era that sucked big time.
still got a couple kicking around here- they sound nasty as hell-
for really raunchy psychedelic, farting tone- One of them sounds just
like the tone Janis Joplin's guitar player used to get- real crud
tone. You can't really do much with them other than make a pile of
really ugly noise- which is neat sometimes, actually.
distortion pedal...I get most of what I like right out of my amp, but
I should have one, still. I have a Fulltone OCD but that a different
animal from a real fuzz.
friend had a good one around 1980 with sliders on it. that was the
closest i've heard since to that psychedilc fuzz (not distortion)
sound. i think it may have been the same as the one on the right,
i think so, too. i'm happy enough with tube overdrive as far as
distortion goes with humbuckers and a tele. find though, a strat needs
the ds-2. i'd like to find one of those old ibanez's around.
I friend of mine recently picked up an Ibanez Tube Screamer re-issue, if
that's what you're talking about.
no, one of these. it was a long time ago it sounded a LOT better than i
remember the sound clip here, representing it as ...
i don't know if there's better out there now, probably is, but at the time i
remember it sounded great and with such presence.
Not too impressed with it...mainly because I like the sound of a plain
old driving amp tube like you do, I'd wager.
I have a Fulltone OCD and I really like it - it's not a fuzz,
though...it's a driver. I can also use it as just a boost because it's
pretty transparent if the drive isn't cranked up. Thinking about an
Octafuzz clone of some sort...gotta try 'em out sometime.
