Fuzzfaceless MKI: Revisited. With Strat and SG, clean and dirty channels.

December 20, 2010

fuzzfaceless@gmail.com. Here’s a more in depth look at the fuzz that has everyone drooling. This time I’ve paired it with a Strat and also a Burny SG, both with Mick Brierley’s pickups and both through the clean and dirty channels of my trusty Laney VC50. Go on. You know you want to order one. You know it’s Christmas and dammit, you deserve it. You won’t be sorry. There may be a small wait though…

T-Rex Effects: MUDHONEY II (Stratocaster to Laney VC50 clean channel)

October 1, 2010

www.t-rex-effects.com There’s something really cool about the new Mudhoney II. It’s kind of a mix between subtle fuzz and distortion and sounds great LOUD. I’ve demoed it for this channel with both single coils* (this video) and high output humbuckers and to my ears it eats up both and has a lot of fun in the meantime. Then there’s the obvious added bonus of having two channels (not stackable) and two degrees of gain for each channel. A two channel amp, if you will. Cool. Your thoughts? Cheers, Brett Kingman *The 2006 Clapton Strat I use has had the stock pickups and electronics replaced with Mick Brierley Hand Wound Pickups (see www.brierleyguitarpickups.com.au) and 50’s style wiring and pots.
