You really like that fuzz sound ? It sounded like it had a compresser /limiter on it and was squashed beyond belief.

Yes! :D
This fuzz sound drives me crazy!
It´s the closet sound I´ve heard to the "Music Machine" fuzz sound (for example you can listen to "Trouble", a tune in wich the fuzz is almost exactly the same).
I always have thought that the Music Machine fuzz is a fuzzrite but higly compressed splashed( by some comp device I still don´t indentify).
It could be this amp with his fuzz effect, it´s possible but I think it´s a hard possibility.

Maybe anyone knows abut it?

It couldn't be a mosrite amp because they weren't in production when the Music Machine recorded their album. Most likely it was a Fuzzrite pedal , Maestro, Bosstone or they used the fuzz in the Vox amps they were indorsing at the time.

Yes, not in production at time, but listening to the extremely closet sound it´s understandable this option.

Anyway they do endorsed Vox, yes, but only for image. In some interviews Bonniwell told that they just used Vox gear for advertising and pictures, they did not play or record with Vox gear.

I think that Sean was refering to the Vox guitars.

Babiuk. The Fuzz on the Music Machine album was one that Keith Olson made through a Bandmaster amp and a Guild Starfire.

I now have a youtube up that compares the Award Mosrite Ventures BG-500 and BG-1000 amps including their FuzzRites and how they compare to a pedal FuzzRite. It can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDhbgn9E6Rs

The BG 1000 sounded much fuller and richer.The fuzz and the way you set it up still is compressed beyond belief.
