There's just a plain old octave up pedal in the EQD Tentacle, which I believe is the circuit in their Hoof Reaper.

At this very moment, there's a sale on some cosmetically defective Pharaoh fuzzes, which is just over your budget (plus shipping). They're heavily recommended all over the place.

1. You can tell if a song is in 4/4 because of the accents of the notes.
For instance, a 4/4 would usually accent ONE-two-THREE-four. with the one and three being the 'on-beat'.
On the other hand,...

Playing it back again acoustically I see that now, sounds a lot nicer. My amp was slightly driven so it did sound to me wildly dissonant but maybe that's just me. :shrug:
