Can someone suggest me a fuzz pedal? I want to kinda sound like Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys from his old stuff, but I don't know where to start. I'm on a budget, so I'd like for it to be under $125, but a little over is okay.

Here's what I want it to sound like:

That doesn't sound like a Big Muff.

Sounds like a Companion Fuzz or something like that.

Watched a demo and it sounds great, but is it still in production?


Actually, I looked it up and he uses an Ibanez Standard Fuzz, which is similar to the previously stated Companion Fuzz.

Most clones or similar sounding pedals are rather expensive though.
Wattson makes an FY-2 that's about $200.
Getting someone to build you a clone might be best. I could recommend someone if you wanted.

Not particularly. If you've got a good soldering iron and a steady hand, it's very easy. Especially if you use a kit.

But, you could always get someone else to build it for you.

ask greeny to make you one.

I don't think I've ever played anything in black walnut. It's a great ice cream flavor, so I assume it works well for a strat too.

The slugs in the pickups for telecasters are from old winchester rifles, which is why they sound so country.

Yeah dude. Find someone to build you one. 'Iwannabesedated' said he could recommend you someone to build you something. Tim (greeny23) probably could if you asked nicely, but probably not because he's not even from Earth. He lives in a mystical place.
