Best Sounding Vintage Studio Fuzz Box ever - check it out!

This video was posted by Mike at Drowning in Guitars and to my ear this is one of the best sounding (if not THE best) vintage single knob fuzzbox I've ever heard.  it's called an Os Mutantes Regulas 8 based on some South American guitarist's vintage spec custom built box.  

Of curse boxes like this - as well as the Superfuzz and the Shin Ei companion, two of my other faves - can be hard to use live since the tone gets easily lost in the mix but man would this sound great on a studio track. 

Mike does a good job of displaying the range of this box and he peels off some darn good licks in the process.

  1. If you are not familiar with Os Mutantes, they are worth checking out. Brazilian psychedelic Samba-funk. Part early Santana, part James Brown, part Fela Kuti, part early Yes...
    A real powerhouse then and still monstrous and wonderful.
