Stones fuzz tone help

Recommended Posts

Hello Helix community,


I'm working on a preset for playing Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones, but I'm having trouble getting close to that fuzz tone.

So far I have the tone as attached to this post. It is essentially a Fuzz pi followed by aTop Secret OD. I did that as I could not really get the tone using only the available fuzz models.


Would appreciate if someone would have a listen and propose some possibilities to get closer to the tone of the record. The clean tone is good enough for me although could be a bit more dirty. No worries about that.


(Please note this patch is to be used live.)


Thanks !!!

I turned down the gain on the distortion and turned up the gain on the fuzz. It sounded a little closer.


OP you really should post what kind of guitar/pickups you're using. That info is needed to get the gain right. . I used a Strat with fairly high output single coils to get the sound.

Yeah sorry about that. 

It's one of those Thomann Fusion pro II guitars with a humbucker in the bridge.
