I'd be interested in trying one; I'm not so sure that what I hear in the video-clips is something that I'd like in my personal sound- there it sounds a bit too 'velcro-y', 'zipper-y', 'Geiger counter-ish', and even almost 8-Bit vintage gaming-console like for my tastes- but it may have more to offer that one would have to experience with their own guitar, amp, other pedals, and especially, their own fingers. I might find that I like it more that I gather based on the videos!

Not that it's a bad sound, not at all- just not necessarily a route to my sound. cool


Skip- and Dannyalcatraz- I really think that you should try out a LastGasp Art Laboratories Octavella if ever you get the opportunity; if you like unusual, even twisted timbrel character in your fuzz, this might appeal. I have one. It sounds like the smell of burning steel and it will NOT 'clean-up' with adjustments of ones guitar volume-knob and/or 'touch' and indelibly imbues its skreeky, grinding, disturbed wrongness deep within the core of any other overdrive, distortion or fuzz pedals or overdriven/distorted tube-amps that you might stack it into, no matter how sweet and warm and smooth they may be. Not an on-all-the-time fuzz for me, but sometimes just the industrial sandblaster for the job at hand!

I'm pretty sure the videos did not do it justice, especially the local version, sorry.
Crap sound, followed by a lot of talk. Welcome to Japan.

wave Oh, I'm not saying that I think it sounds bad- it sounds pretty good, and definitely has its own character that's a bit unique (its design and the way it works is DEFINITELY VERY unique!). And I've checked out other video demos of it. (And, please, no apologies on your behalf OR Japan's, I insist, or you and I will fight. wink grin crazy YEAH, RIGHT!! laugh ) It's just a type of fuzz and distortion that I don't particularly care for, especially for my OWN tones.

The Octavella isn't what I'd usually use, either- but it's another fun, unusual, twisted option amongst an ocean of fuzzezzezz.

I know LastGasp’s stuff! I REALLY want one of their Sandstorm pedals. Maybe an 87 & Gomorrah, too.

Kool-I can bring enough implements of destruction for both of us. And most of our friends laugh
Actually, I`m not much of a fuzz guy. The smooth distortion sound is what jumped out for me.

Dannyalcatraz- Those make my Octavella seem like a nice, warm, gentle old vintage Fuzz Face by comparison! crazy laugh

I most often use octave-fuzzes and fuzzes to feed into overdriven/distorted tube-amps and/or overdrive and distortion pedals, for a smooth, warm, singing tone. The combination fattens and smooths and warms the fuzz.

The Octavella refuses to play nicey-nice, though, imparting its own sinister skreekiness into whatever it's stacked up with. crazy grin freak love

You might also like the Wampler Velvet Fuzz, which was designed to emulate the combination of classic vintage fuzz being fed into a cranked classic vintage tube-amp.

Note Eric Johnson's use of a Fuzz Face into a Marshall for some very smooth, warm tones...

LastGasp pedals are kind of like the devil-children you see in Western supernatural horror movies. They SEEM like such nice kids, right until they go all 666 on ya.

Well that`s just it-making those work is about taming the harshness. Otherwise...

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice. cool

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful; I used to have, when I was young and ignorant, an original germanium-transistor JAX-branded Shin-ei FY-2 "Fuzz Master Unit"/"Fuzz Box" ('Companion Fuzz'). It was one helluva rude abrasive sick pumping breathing fuzz to say the least, and I wish I still had it 'cause I'd know MUCH better what to do with it now and I have no idea what even ever became of it so very long ago and a fair bit away...

____________ It looked a lot like this one:

Okay-I`ll only hate you because you can do closeups... laugh
Sure, if you`re going for that sound, the authenticer the better.
It`s just not part of my palette these days. Of course that could change in the future.
