The Box Version I have here is in the 'normal' Dr. No size and has a beautiful drawing of a Skull / Octopus. The only two knobs are a volume and a fuzz (why would you even want a tone on a fuzz) and the effect has a switch of Deep and Thin. Of course, the package is also again a sensation with the box of goodies where stickers and buttons are it of both Dr. No and Troy van Leeuwen (QOTSA).
Again and as always I use it on my Orange amp and I play on my Bo-el S03 guitar. I start right good with the fuzz and volume both at maximum and the switch on Deep. Goddamn what a sound! Deep is really deep and the sound is low and full. A complete wall of sound you put down on your own. As well with single notes as with chords, this is a very impressive sound. That 'real' old Kyuss can easily be nailed and so I can name more examples. I have tried to find downsides of this effect, but simply cannot find one.
I set the switch to the Thin setting and the sound is equally heavy, but now with much high / treble. Into the mix this setting might be better, but nothing is thicker than the first setting I had. Here you can get a lot of fun and inspiration of and for sure that new riffs will come up.
Are you a fan of fuzz effects or do you want to get started, simply buy this pedal. Heavy to the max and an absolute recommendation. A must-have and perhaps the best fuzz?!
