  4. After 53 years of guitar playing, 2020 was the year that I discovered effects pedals. Your site, Bjorn, was extremely helpful in this new creative exploration. My new pedalboard, which I use for electric, acoustic, and classical guitar includes the Gurus Optivalve MKII, Keeley Dark Side, EHX SuperEgo+, Dawner Prince Boonar, EHX GrandCanyon, Walrus Audio Slo, and Death by Audio Reverberation Machine. I also have a Hologram Electronics Microcosm on order. In particular, the Optivalve and Boonar were influenced by your helpful website. Thanks!

    Happy new year everyone!

    I got the Thorpy FX Camoflange and the search for the best Mistress-type flanger has ended. A lot more versatile as well: With those 6 knobs you can dial in a lot of different sounds!
    Keep the blend control fairly low, harmonics at 12-ish and turn up the treble to get the Mistress sounds though :P

    • Bjorn says:

      Congrats Phil! Been asking for one for review for some time now but no replies.

      • Phil B says:

        Yeah that’s strange … Adrian replied to me within a week after new year, when I had a question about the pedal.
        They have given out the Camoflange for review to others, though, no?

  6. Brian Deren says:

    Hey Bjorn, I agree on both counts, amazing sounding pedals…my question, how does the Tru-Fi Floyd Fuzz measure up, and vice versa, to the Phil Phuzz? Both sound incredible in your demos, also wondering how the Phuzz works with a Overdriver/Powerbooster pedal. Thanks!

    • Bjorn says:

      Apologies for the late reply. The Floyd Fuzz is a ram’s head Big Muff, while the Phuzz is based on the Fuzz Face. Somewhat overlapping but really two different pedals. Both goes very well with a boost.

  7. Gabe Aguirre says:

    Hey Bjorn did you mean Dark Side and Wish You Were Here? Has new information come out that he went back to the fuzz for Animals rather than the Muff?

    • Bjorn says:

      Animals was mostly the Big Muff but he did feature a Fuzz Face on his boards up until the recording of Final Cut. The Fuzz Face was also used on 1977 live performances of Money and possibly Pigs.

    I think my favorite pedal I got this year was my BYOC Classic Fuzz. I usually use it on a low bias setting for Jack White feeling angry gated fuzz, but when I kick the bias knob to around 3 o’clock its a great sounding fuzz face. I actually use it over my Russian Muff reissue for a lot of Gilmour fuzz, it has a Fat EQ setting that really thickens up single coils. Sometimes I stack it in low bias mode with the Muff before and its such a wonderfully angry distorted tone but because of the low bias gaiting theres virtually no noise/feedback when you aren’t playing

    I didn’t buy it yet but I’m looking at used J Rockett Blue Notes, theyre a relatively low gain transparent drive. It mainly makes me think of Larry Carlton tones but I’m sure with some single coils it would nail drive sounds like Poles Apart

    I got a Electro Harmonie Big Muff Rams Head. Excellent pedal.

    My best buys this year were two Caline pedals. A Pegasus Klone and a Pure Sky. I was not terribly impressed with the Pegasus initially, preferring to get my clean boost from a different clean boost pedal. I was about to return it when the Pure Sky Timmy clone turned up. That seemed much better. But then I tried stacking the Pegasus into the Pure Sky. That’s a magic combination – lots of sustain and depth of harmonics so the Pegasus got a reprieve. In fact that Pure Sky plays nicely with ANYTHING. Makes me wonder what more a real Timmy would give me.

    Happy New Year Bjorn.
