Hey all, I'm looking for a fuzz pedal that is suited for Nine Inch Nails and Black Light Burns type fuzz. The more versatility the better. Would a French Toast be capable of doing this type fuzz? I know most will suggest a Fuzz Factory but I'm just looking for alternatives not as expensive as the Fuzz Factory. Thanks in advance.

Honestly, they rock. I'm the stupidest man alive for breaking mine.

A russian Big Muff would probably do it.

I always thought they were more of a distortion pedal? I have heard good things about them though. Any more suggestions?

I'd just like to repeat the whole Russian Big Muff suggestion as a satisfied owner of one.

I would get fuzz from some boutique company (even though most are nearly the same). Look around.

The USA Big Muffs are fuzzier and the Sovtek ones are like distortion with a fuzzy character to it.

So a USA Big Muff is better then a Russian?

Analogman's SunFace is a pretty great sounding fuzz, a touch darker and very responsive. Lots of tweakability. Cheaper than the fuzz factory at $230.

(still, save up for a fuzz factory).

-edit- To respond to the above post, the US isn't better, it's just different. I own a Sovtek; it's darker and smoother, less fizzy. But you won't get the tight, compressed fuzz.
Fighting the good fight since 'ought-diggity.

IMO you need something a bit more extreme than a Big Muff. Look at Devi Ever fuzzes, one of their $100 pedals should get you a nice nasty fuzz.
