So my pedal binge continues. I'm still waiting for my DD-500 to show up so I picked up these two pedals to tide me over. I'm in a cover band, an alternative rock band and I got asked to join a country/rock outfit so my pedalboard needed some expanding. I'm barely playing metal anymore so I needed a different drive alternative and the EHX Crayon fit the bill. I'm overwhelmingly surprised at how damn good this thing sounds! I've only really had TS style OD's in the past and this has opened up a whole new spectrum of sounds. I think eventually I'll pick up a Timmy or something similar, but bang for your buck the Crayon is ridiculously good. I've been using it with the volume at 2 o'clock, drive at 9ish o'clock, and bass and treble around 1-2 o'clock. If you roll back the bass you get a really good treble booster kind of sound. I haven't had fuzz pedal for a few years, and I really disliked the Little Big Muff I previously had so I was initially thinking of going for a Fuzz Face style pedal, but this was 25% off at the store so I plugged it in and was blown away at it's versatility. It can go from smooth to grindy, and light fuzz to over the top, wall-shaking sustain. Eventually I will pick up an FF style fuzz (so feel free to recommend options), but this has got me satisfied for now.
