You know what, just get a Joyo.
It's cheap and it won't be that big of a loss when you realize it won't sound good with your MG

Look up what amps those guys run their fuzzes into and you'll realize that its pointless to spend this much time and money thinking about what fuzz they use and completely ignore the amps.

This isn't a "which amp should I get so I can get a fuzz pedal later to run into it" thread. Run the fuzz through the Clean channel on the MG and you're fine. They have passable cleans to run fuzz pedals into. Trust me, I had to do it many times when I was back at school.

Seriously, how hard is it just to answer the question being posed?

FWIW, I read a lot of info & reviews about the Big Muff pedals before buying one. Even though EHX describes most of them as distortion, pretty much all reviews & other sites describe them as fuzz. As with all things, the best advice if you aren't sure is to try one and decide if you like it or not.

Have to admit though, despite being one of the few people brave enough to say MGs aren't as bad as most people here say they are, it is still the obvious weakness in your sound. If you've reached the point where you have outgrown the sound of your amp, then a better amp should be your first priority.

we already did answer the fuzz thing. and as most of us said, if he can get one cheap enough, he can go for it.

But we'd also be doing him a disservice if we didn't also warn him that his amp is the problem (especially when matt bellamy tones came up- fuzz factories are expensive here!), and unless he can get a cheap fuzz, a new amp might be a better use of his funds.

this forum is for advice- if someone asks how to do something which isn't sensible, or which is dangerous, then we're going to tell them not to do it. We don't just rubber stamp things here- obviously it's still the threadstarter's call at the end of the day, as it's his/her money (and that's as it should be), but that doesn't mean we're going to humour them if we think that what they're planning to do isn't sensible.
