Thinking of buying a Fuzz pedal. It's never been my thing before; I've always played with my amp's distortion with maybe a clean boost.
I've been bitten by the EJ bug for weeks now. I've already picked up a pedal to simulate the tape delay, and now I'm itching for the fuzz. I'm not necessarily trying to cop his tone, but I'd like something similar and cost effective. At this point I dont know that I'd be even able to tell the difference between fuzz types, but I dont want anything too sludgy. EJ's fuzz tone is still pretty well defined when he plays chords, I've heard fuzz tones that sound really mucky a la Foxy Lady. It would be nice to be able to dial in both tones though.
I was looking at the Dunlop (Arbiter) Fuzz Face, but was wondering if there are any better options out there. Dunlop has a Hendrix fuzz out too that looks like it might be cool, and Duncan has one that looks pretty cool too.
Anyone out there use Fuzz pedals and have a suggestion?
