  • cheapest alternative to a Fuzz Factory

    Really have been wanting to play around with a fuzz factory for years but I just cant justify spending that much on a pedal, I buy mostly cheap effects for fun, the most expensive pedal I own is probably my PN-2 because it was a lucky find at a pawn shop.

    right now for fuzz I have a dano french toast, dano cool cat, and a J. Everman fuzz drive. Should I even bother with a FF clone? If yes who makes em!?

            good alternative to the Fuzz Factory, but i'd say you can find homemade fuzz factory clones on ebay or messgeboards for cheaper.

                      That was going to be my suggestion.

                      If you're into DIY I'd recemend buying and building a Noise Swash kit from 4ms. It's much more out of hand then the Fuzz Factory in terms of noise generation.

                          If it's the pedal you really want, save up and buy it. If you buy some clone/knockoff you'll always wonder if it sounds as good as the real thing (which it probably doesn't). You can find a used vexter for just over $100.

                            get a vextor fuzz factory.

                            i have both the zoom ultra fuzz and fuzz factory. they're similar, but there's really nothing quite like a fuzz factory. the cool thing about the ultra fuzz is that you can get more "useable" sounds out of it. vextor ff is probably cheaper than an ultra fuzz if you can even find one.
