hey

did matt actually stick his ff onto the side of his guitar before having it built in? anyone got a pic by any chance?

i personally don't find the need to have it built into a guitar or stuck on the side of my guitar, if i want feedback i just alter the volume control, not that fussy really

The diezel has like four channels, clean, crunch, distortion, MENTAL distortion.

The FF sounds really good on a crunch channel, so I can understand that he uses that one.

 

And yeah, I believe he used to stick some of his effects to his guitar before he got the Mansons :)

I'm undecided on whether 2 get a FF or EHX Big Muff. Can d FF give u those great plunging noises matt makes everytime he slides his fingers down the fret board?

Yeah, I do that all the time now, it`s a cool tecnique that I got the hang of while using the FF. Now I can do it with almost any distortion. I thought it was a thing that was Matt`s, but it turns out almost all guitarists use that. For me, it`s become a habit now, lol.

The Vox pathfinder is great, so is the Vox Brian May amp. Or what about an Orange Crush 15W ?

so because matt uses his crunch channel do you think i shoud use the line 6 spider 2s crunch(models a marshall plexi, should i use the 100 or 50 watt) with fuzz to get the best sound

That might get you a "matt-ish" sound. A word of advice, bring along your gitar and fuzz to the shop, and try the amp with those. You don`t want to buy the amp, take it home, only to find out it sounds shit with your gear.

my thoughts about ff:

sounds different in combination with different guitars,amps

some amps make it sound really good,others make it sound really bad

thats main problem with it and the reason why i dont use it anymore

Too bad :( It sounds great with Orange Amps (and most other valve amps for that matter), especially on high gain settings.

I finally got my FF. And my head hurts !

It's the finest sound for plug in baby, all on 7 (clock), increase comp then Stab to get that cool sound :D

 

But I can't get the right sound for the rest of Muse songs especially Citizen Erased, can't hear the harmonics.

Someone suggested the Hi Compression fuzz setting but when I do that at the end of the note sound it goes PrrrBBRRppp like a big fart lol.

 

So what setting should I use for CE ? :(

Depends on your axe. I use this one.

 

Volume: Whatever you prefer

 

Gate : 7

 

Comp : around 3. Just enough to make the hissing go away

 

Drive : 2-3-4 (depends on how much distortion you want)

 

Stab : 5

actually he does, the album version is the silver manson tuned down

 

but live he uses amp distortion, so for just one song use that, may as well

 

i know that, but from my ears that dosnt sound liek a fuzz to me, well certainly not all of it.. maybe i jsut dont know anything

no that's true Matt doesn't uses his FF for C.E he uses his amp overdrive channel. That's ok cause I have the Jackhammer distorsion.

 

But for songs like Dead star, New Born, etc.. can't get the right sound. What a complicated effect ZVex has made !

That may be his acoustic pickups or motherbucker. They are a huge part of his sound.
