I've tried unsuccessfully to add distortion or fuzz to the sax and the best I can get is just a hotter mic sound, or ear piercing feedback if the level is too high. I read a thread on another website saying sax is a square waveform and the idea of distortion you'd add to say a guitar, would be sort of similating the sound of a sax with the sustain of the distortion, so trying to distort the sax doesn't work so well or easily. Just wondering if anyone's done it well with an easy solution. That thread gave one suggestion as far as a adding a filtered effect like flange first and then distortion which somehow makes this possible. I haven't tried it yet as I just learned about it today.
