While we appreciate our good friend Gearmanndude showcasing the Freud, setting his DrZ to a slight crunch – while the proper setting for a conventional fuzz pedal – didn’t really do it justice here. By effectively having now two crunch ODs in series, this particular demo sounded a tad over-the-top IOHO. At the 5:37 mark you hear perhaps a closer taste of its intended tone when GMD briefly backs off his guitar volume. Freud’s strength comes from sounding like a premium OD (based on a Kalamazoo/Klon type OD sound) when your guitar’s volume is turned down to around 6-8 but then like a classic full-sounding FF fuzz with the guitar at 10. This is not your typical fuzz, but a unique hybrid expressly designed to sound good straight out of the pedal with no additional amp “doctoring” needed – pardon the pun.
