As I have mentioned in a few different threads, I've been gassing for a Keeley Fuzz Head. Well, I just spent too much time on Youtube watching Gearmandude vids. Now I want 17 different Fuzz Pedals. Sooooo I am....

 

Still bonerizing on the Keeley....

 

Really digging the Way Huge swollen Pickle....

 

Like, but am not enamored with the Analogman stuff.....

 

Don't wants teh Big Muff(unless it's girl muff).....

 

Any other suggestions? Cheap or Boo-teek-ee is fine.

 

K? Thnx.

How much fuzz? How crazy? How tight? How crazy? Too many options. I absolutely love my Skreddy Lunar Module but it more of a tight, controlled fuzz. For pure craziness, it would be hard to beat the Blackout Effector Twosome. Had one and it was just too much for me.

Its all about figuring out which "type" of fuzz you like i.e. Fuzz Face, Muff, Tone Bender etc... and the differences between them.

 

Muff sounds massive for rhythm and kind of scooped lead tone. It also doesn't clean up with the guitar volume well.

 

Fuzz Face has more mids than a Muff, with a smoother top end and it seems to mix more with your amps voicing instead of layering over it like a Muff. And depending on the type, they clean up really well the guitar volume. But I find for rhythm, they're best when the guitar volume is rolled back a few notches so its not as blurry. When it's time for leads, thats when you dime the guitar volume for ultimate sustain.

 

Tone Bender is kind of a brighter, gnarlier version of a Fuzz Face. Admittedly I have the least experience with these.

 

Obviously I'm really biased towards the FF sound. Their lead tone is much fatter/mid heavy than a muff, but they don't have that crazy aggressive rhythm sound either.
