I'm looking for a good fuzz pedal. Something that can get that crazy "holy crap my amps about to explode" fuzz. Right now I've got my eye set on the original Big Muff but I was wondering if anyone out there knows something even better?

Yeah, Death By Audio is the way to go for that kind of sound. Fuzz War is a great choice.

Blackout Effectors Musket Fuzz would also be good.

That musket fuzz sounds sick (in a good way)


Great pedal. Tweaked Big Muff circuit with a Power Boost in front.

The Zvex Fuzz Factory is really good for that type of insane sound.

But even better is probably the Redwitch Fuzzgod II. Tried it and i was blown away. It has a gate that is accessible with a footswitch so you can make your amp scream. Check it out.

My buddy said he could never quite find a right sound with the Fuzz God II. Something was always kind of "off". Take what you will from that. I like my Way Huge Swollen Pickle

Maybe. Then the Zvex is probably better.

But TS asked for "a pedal that makes your amp sounds like it is dying" and then the Fuzzgod and the Zvex is the right choice.

Well guys I have it down to either the Big Muff, the Fuzz War, or the Musket Fuzz. On a side note, has anyone had any experience buying used pedals off Ebay or is direct from the maker the best way to go? I dont wanna get ripped off again

I've bought a dozen or so pedals on ebay, and I've sold as many on there. I've never had a problem myself, they do a pretty good job protecting buyers (wish they did as much protecting sellers).

Ebay is a good way to go.

Dwarfcraft Eau Claire Thunder or Baby Thundaa with the tone knob bypassed. Big, huge, loud muff style fuzz with a full, open frequency response.

Have any of you guys checked out the Mojo Hand Colossus fuzz? I just found some stuff on it and it nails those David Gilmour Big Muff tones I love but doesnt have all that much gain. You think running it through my MXR classic overdrive would take it to that "dying amp" Jack White territory?
