That Pedal Show – Muffy Fuzzes & ’Verb: Shades Of Shoegaze

Published on Apr 7, 2017

In this episode we’re treading on some very thin ice, way out of our usual comfort zones… talking very loosely about late 1980s British indie genre, Shoegaze.
After we stumble uncomfortably through a brief (and probably incorrect) history of what it was and how it came to be (try Wikipedia for something better), we haul ourselves onto the solid ground of fuzz pedals! Specifically EHX Big Muff-inspired fuzzes from four different manufacturers, plus a lovely old 1974 Sola Sound Tonebender for good measure.
Add plenty of reverb, a couple of offset guitars, turn it up and watch ’em go!
