Well a good tremelo, a good reverb, perhaps a baritone guitar.. depends but
a particular kind of fuzz seems to play into a good deal of the spaghetti sound
too. There's the vintage mosrite fuzz rite, maestro fuzztone, along with many remakes like the merkin fuzz by catalin bread, the mid fi psych bike, big foot even calls theirs a spagh western fuzz, etc.

Don't you have a Spaghetti Western-type fuzz in the works as well, Tavo? I could have sworn you had a prototype in one of the Christmas videos.

Anyways, I think you have the basics listed in your post for that Spaghetti Western. I've been able to cop some good tones with my Telecaster, the Nocturne Nail Head, a Hardwire Stereo Reverb (Plate Setting), and a Fredric Unpleasant Companion Fuzz. The last pedal is a Shin-Ei Companion clone with a boost section that helps it up to unity gain. The originals had a severe volume drop. Fredric also makes a variant with a different EQ section based on the Muff. Personally, I think the wacky EQ basically gives it a special kind of fun factor. You can do Spaghetti Western with this set up, but it also cops some pretty awesome Ghastly Ones tones when you really get that spring reverb kicking!

Sweet - Just saw it! The pedal looks awesome! AWESOME. Are those knobs and the paint scheme going into the production model?

I'm interested in the comparison between the Mosrite-style and the Fuzz Ray. I find that the most minimal of the Fuzz Ray settings are what I like best, so I'm wondering if my Fuzz tastes are a little more spaghetti than wall-of-fuzz.

baritone cravings

Post  jvoblue on Sun Feb 26, 2012 12:03 am

This just increases my GAS for a baritone guitar. I really like the Dano, but am wondering about the Gretsch.
Has anyone used the Gretsch Baritone?

Hey Tavo - do you have a rough guesstimate on a launch day? I've stuffed some cash aside for one.
