Fripp's equipment circa early 70's

Postby steven on Thu Apr 10, 2014 8:24 am

Just found this again, after reading it almost 40 years ago, in case any of you guitar players gives a crap:
From Guitar Player Magazine (1974)
"On stage I use three pedals on a pedal board: A volume pedal, fuzz-tone, and wah-wah. The fuzz-tone and wah-wah are pretty rubbishy. I'm not sure what type of wah-wah it is. The best fuzz-box to use is a Burn's Buzz-around which they discontinued making in England about six years ago." -Robert Fripp, King Crimson

I for one greatly prefer the sound of Fripp's guitar back in the old days when it still sounded like a electric guitar....

it's hard to maybe not complain but prefer, and I wish He still or even can play "Fracture" still. I think you have to trust the man, because He comes up with classics, and His style and choice of instruments, are just tools to the sound He wants. IMO
Everyone thinks I'm psychotic, except for my friends deep inside the earth.

Fripp still can play dazzling lines, but you can't really appreciate them because the weird distortion he uses these days muddles the sound so much. I, too, wish he would go back to a regular sounding fuzz effect. I wonder if "Fracture" translates well into the NST? I think Fracture was before he started using it, but not 100% sure.
