I love a good slow dirty flange, that dark metallic shit with the LFO mixed almost all the way out.

And oh yeah - I gotta second the TAFM for the HEAVIES. Great stuff there. Especially because with the clean blend you can run a super nasty trebly octave fuzz into it and blend it into the warm and wooly which the TAFM brings on its own.

Devi Silver Rose for that matter too...

That's a combination I haven't done in a while, Tone Machine into my muff variant. Must sort that out.

Verellen Big Spider into Team Awesome. You could do with either alone, no problem. But combined it's unstoppable like Voltron or somethin'.
If Voltron only had two parts.

Dwarfcraft Eau Claire Thunder all the way! I've been through my fair share of doomy fuzzes and the Thunder just edged out the TAFM. The built in feedback loop is an added bonus.

I'll be moving back into my apartment/school on Saturday and can do an ECT doom demo for you then, I did use it in combination with a Year4545 in this clip:

boosting a pharaoh is great, even with another pharaoh

examples (okay a lil spamming but u get the idea, any FF into the pharaoh would also work)

what's your amp? you won't get the doomz without lots of power.

but yeah - RAT + a Muff is pretty destroying.

or Creepy Fingers Doomidrive + a Muff or something.
Doomidrive stacked with a Megalith of Wattson Superfuzz both gave huge, textured fuzz soundz.
Maybe partying will help.

I did have a 1975 peavey roadmaster super festival series. It destroyed me. It was too much amp for me. Now I am playing through a sunn 2 12" combo. I think I made my final decision a very special twosome and a tafm stacked through the sunn. I think that will work. Thanks for the info/opinions.
"adding a room to the back of the house"? nope,thats my 16 12" sunn cab.

Here's my experiences with some of the pedals listed in this thread:

Pharaoh - Throaty and really midrangey. I could cop a good Sleep tone from the Pharaoh.

Musket - Way crunchier. If the Pharaoh is analogous to Sleep, the Musket is more like High on Fire.

Eau Claire Thunder - SUPER fuzzy and the least crunch. I'd use it for droning, sludgy stuff, but not necessarily something with tight palm muting.

I haven't played a TAFM, but my main go-to distortion tone has mainly been OCD > Very Special Twosome, with the Musket set to my "main" tone and the Fix'd Fuzz set to a little sizzle on top for leads.
