Big Muff-like Fuzz Pedals that can Cut Through the Mix?

Hi everyone. So recently my EHX Big Muff nano broke, and it would cost a ton of money to fix it, so I've decided to look for a muff clone that can cut through the mix. Does anyone have any tips for what kinds I should look into? My budget is between about 100-180 dollars, and my band is made up of five people (including myself), and has a guitarist, a singer, a drummer, and a bassist. Any help would be fantastic.

-Thanks

I use a ProCo RAT boosted by a Soul Food to get Big Muff-like sounds. You'll almost always need to boost a fuzz pedal like the Big Muff.

Vick audio makes great fuzz clones, solid quality, and fairly cheap.

i have the older version of the 73 rams head, which is a famous version of muff. he also added a flat EQ, mid scooped (classic muff) and a mid boosted tone, which i typically use. i love it. his fuzzes go from about 70-130

im not sure how he makes such great pedals for so cheap.

Blackout effectors musket, way huge swollen pickle, big muff pi deluxe. Basically, any muff variant with knobs for the mid range will do.

Look at the Germanium Muff 4. Itís a germanium fuzz overdrive pedals in a single enclosure so you can cascade the two for a huge sound.

Also look for clones of the DAM Sonic Titan on Reberb. Itís a preamp/poweramp circuit in a box that kicks out huge fuzzy tones.
