Velvet's Fuzz Effects (again)

Postby Hagbard Celine » 17 Apr 2017 08:28

I have been on and off this forum for some time now (opening new names when I loose passwords or user names). I remember there being discussions about the the distortion and fuzz that they use for the first two records. I remember reading about some of their stuff used as well (vox stuff mostly). On the new reissue of WL/WH I heard a full revealing of the tremolo and fuzz that is used by Lou during "The Gift". I know that Vox made some built in effects in their guitars (see Spaceman 3's "Playing With Fire" to hear a whole lp based on one)- I am wondering since they had a sponsorship from Vox if they were also using some of those guitars - The Gift makes is sound like it. Some of those guitars had fuzz, tone boosters and repeaters built into them and if you listen to the first feedback solo on the live version it comes in with some knob tweaking and speed switching of the the repeater. Anyone else have an opinion about this?
