    Tell us more about it.

    If I were eyeing for fuzz pedals, that and the Big Muff would be my choice.


    P/S: Can the Maestro produce that early Led Zep and David Gilmour (on DSOTM) tone?

    Strange. I wonder why Maestro pedals seems to be overlooked by most folks.

    i dont know, probably because they want something that has a lot of stage by famous artists or something technologically better or they just dont want a gibson pedal because (probably same with the gibson amps) but heres the link its the only pedal maestro makes right no they used to make a bunch back in the day.....

    i wonder why maestro stopped making the wah/volume peadl and the others they made, which pedals do you guys have, if you guys have the fuzz tone which model do you have, and how do you like them?




    all i have is the fuzz tone FZ-1A (not a big fan of pedals at all it's the only pedal i own) i've got the origanal style 1A the kind with the gold nobs, but i like it alot i mean i've had it since the early 70's

    I had a Maestro fuzz years ago, but for some reason mine was very noisy...too noisy to gig with... Are you using the FZ-1A for live work 68GSG? What style of music are you using it for?

    now there's a question, 68 GSG....we're talking going back nearly 30 yrs ...about 1978... I don't remember the model number... I am using a 1967 Marshall Supa Fuzz now

    Classic rock? I had you down as a "Doors" tribute band :)

    are you sure it was a Fuzz Tone or just a Maestro Fuzz?, what did it look like?



    no, we do play lots of doors songs though, i do use the same equipment as the Doors; Robby Krieger though

    It was a Fuzz Phaser... a pale blue rocker pedal. Metal bodied and stove enamelled

    Which Doors' songs do you do? which ones go down best with the crowd? The first album, I bet? "Hello I Love you" and all that....

    i play: hello i love you (reason why i bought the pedal way back when), the end, spanish caravan (fun finger-picking), break on through, whiskey bar, peace frog, roadhouse blues, and when the musics over, occasionally we play others to but those are the main doors songs we play

    i forgot to add we play people are strange, l.a. Woman and love her madly, also besides whiskey bar other songs that the doors redid that we redo are (you need meat) dont go no further, back door man, close to you, and who do you love?, of course the people like to here light my fire but i dont really get a kick out of playing it so i try not to play it also we never play more than 5 doors' songs a gig unless its at a blues festival i play at in the summer we play more because playing time for one band may be up to 4 hours

    band name currently wasted old band name was Perception (doors of perception) but me and the lead singer turned out to be the only ones that liked it (we do have new band members so i should check with them) i would like to have the name weird scenes, though (weird scenes inside the gold mine), but about the blues festival its an outdoor gig in 5 parking lots and a feild with 6 stages (bands rotate) its real fun, the Experience Jimi Hendrix tractor-trailer omes theres always (cheap) vendors that have good food and theres some (expensive) vendors that have some strange things and everyday things, its free it's about 4 days i think but i only show up on st. & sun. we play 1 and half hours blocks at each stage for about 3 roatations (each stage thrice) some guy named Kerry Kearney :lol: (i really know who he is, of course) and some Ragae guy get a 4 hour block, they are like the 'big thing' and to go it doesnt cost fans anything
