This is the secret of my secret sound. On my more recent electric recordings, the blues driver has been all I've used for overdrive. There probably ARE better things out there, but I sure as hell can't afford them or be bothered to look. :lol:

Shaftesbury Duo-Fuzz for me (although the Big Muff and Maestro units comein close second).

Listen to Dave Sinclair's fuzz-driven organ solos on "Nine Feet Underground", or Dave Stewart's on the two Hatfield LPs.

Shaftesbury Duo-Fuzz? He's a friend of Ron Jeremy's isn't he?

I like the subtle way you are recommending people to listen to Caravan and Hatfield and the North, higgy -- of course they should. Is it the same as Mike Ratledge used? Listen to Hatfield, listen to Soft Machine.

I Love fuzz-organ.

Hmm. Good question. I don't think so. But then Ratledge played a Lowry, not a Hammond, so his sound was sompletely different.

Too technical for me, but i like those bass pedals the bass player in IQ uses. The kind that rips your gut to pieces when you step on it.
