  • Foxx Tone Machine VS Super Fuzz

    I'm curious to how close these two fuzzes are and if there are and major differences between the two.

    Some of these fuzz/octave pedals can sound very similar, mainly because they are all clones of each other


    I already have an Ultimate octave, would these pedals (Tone Machine & Super Fuzz) sound the same as my fulltone with the octave switch on? Would I be down grading?

    a Wattson Superfuzz is an upgrade from anything, I don't care what it is, it's an upgrade

      From the Foxx-type and Superfuzz-type fuzzes I've heard, they're pretty different: the Foxx has a far more pronounced octave effect, less chaotic. Superfuzz is more gnarled/effed-up sounding.

          Explain, if you will.

          I always thought most fuzzes were fuzz face clones, which fuzzes were the originals? have to most different sounds

                I heard this before. I've never played a Foxx Tone Machine, but my Ultimate Octave rocks!!!!

                  I have a wattson SF and its freaking awesome!! You gotta roll back the tone knob and use the neck PU for the octave effect to really be noticeable..

                    My Wattson GAS burns with greater intensity with each passing day. And I'm not even a fuzz guy.

                      The Foxx can have a really really pronounced octave effect without any pickup or tone tricks to bring it out which is really nice. It can be really cutting or a little mellower depending on how you set things. I like that you dont have to do anything tricky to get it. Just hit the switch and a clear and powerful upper octave is there. The basic fuzz tone is also really awesome and punchy. Lots of gain and volume too.

                      The Superfuzz is also a cool pedal but the octave isn't as pronounced and I have used some that didn't even get to unity volume which made them hard to use for me. Both cool pedals though.

                            The Byoc Leeds Fuzz is a nice super fuzz clone.

                            I'm a bit of a fuzz freak between my ultimate octave, leeds fuzz, sunface, dano french toast, and bbe free fuzz... just trying to not to buy something that i already have

                              Your Ultimate Octave and french toast are both based on the fox tone machine with slight changes to accommodate modern parts. The leeds fuzz is basically a superfuzz and the free fuzz and sunface are both fuzz face clones.
