    on my board I've been consistently sporting the devi ever Silver Rose & Sonic Crayon Moth. clean blends sell it for me.



    all time favorite would be some StereoScope fuzz pedals. true gems. too good to board, save em for recording.

      I haven't played enough to really know, but I use my Zoom Ultra Fuzz in my live setup as it seems to cut through really well.

      For recording however i tend to prefer:

      Sodameiser clone made by Melx

      Woolly Mammoth clone by Dangerous Dan

      Boss FZ-2

      Or a good old NYC muff.

        i just owend a few, but playd/tasted a lot. My Favs are still the Skreddy Zero and the Red Witch Fuzz God II. Perfect for my needs and music. i really liked the Hoof by EQD. As next i want to try the Wren and Cuff tall font... i want some thing thats based on the green Russ muff again.

          voodoo labs superfuzz seriously comes in at #1

          blackarts toneworks pharaoh

          fuzz factory

          some sort of tonebender is in here. i've played a few clones and i'm really fond of the bender style fuzz.

          at #5 i had a vintage fender fuzz/wah that sounded absolutely incredible through a plexi

            I'm a longtime user and fan of the OLC Chunky Cheese, which is a Lovetone Big Cheese clone. Great sounds, and lots of 'em - it's very versatile.



            The best Muff inspired pedal I've personally ever used is my Skreddy Pink Flesh Mk II. So creamy, so fat, and you can actually have some mids with it if you want. It's an amazing fuzz.



            I really love the little Malekko Fuzz for classic Univox Super Fuzz type tones. It's one of the coolest little octave fuzzes out there.



            The new Crosstown from Mojo Hand is my favorite FF variant to date. It's a hybrid, sounds great, and has some interesting features. Click the link to check out my review of it.



            Finally, in Tonebenderland, I'm still incredibly infatuated with the sound of the Monsterpiece MkII, which is a Mk1.5 based pedal. I hear that it's been improved since mine was built, but it sounds so good as it is, I'm kind of afraid to send it back to have it upgraded. It's just so sweet and musical.

                    from what is currently on my board, its the hcfx octophant *bows*



                    won against big muff pi, little big muff, boyc fuzzface, byoc tonebender, ehx graphic fuzz and roland beebaa



                    edit: oh and i forgot my zvex fuzz factory which is also great and makes gated sounds, but is bitchy as hell with the settings, the octophant is not that crazy but much easier to use

                        Top 5 that I own...



                        1. Mid-fi demo tape fuzz

                        2. Analogman peppermint

                        3. Fulltone '69

                        4. Monsterpiece mkII (really a 1.5)

                        5. Catalinbread merkin



                        Honorable mention to the Wattson fy-2 and EQD Dirt transmitter.



                        Favorite germanium fuzz would be a fuzz face/mk 1.5 tonebender

                        Favorite silicon fuzz would have to be something snarly like a fuzzrite or fy-2
