Oi

I'm in the market for a good Fuzz pedal.
Something that would give me the sound that Queens of the Stone Age used on Little Sister. Something that could get me that kind of sound, but that is not only limited to it would be great.

My budget would be around $200 (CND), can go over if need be.

I play a Gibson Explorer through a Peavey JSX Halfstack.


Any help would be great.

Thanks.

I'm not sure if it's within your budget, but a Frantone Peachfuzz would be right up your alley because it can go from a light vintagey fuzz to a crushing mess, and it can also be used as a boost.

As far as I know, neither Josh or Troy use any fuzz pedals, but I might be wrong.

I've heard Homme uses a few different fuzzes, including various Muffs and Tonebender type things.

And Cream Puff>Peach Fuzz.

Well i guess i could stretch my budget. I guess I ain't too firm on that.


All help is appreciated.

If you can stretch, get a Red Witch Fuzz God II.

Didn't we already have this argument?

Anyway, I've seen QotSA live twice, and while they had a load of pedals I didn't see a Muff anywhere (I couldn't recognise a Toneblender at the time, though, so I might be wrong) and he's on record saying he prefers to play with the settings of his amps to get different distortion sounds.

Yeah, the Red Witch is a hell of a pedal. Also look into some Devi Ever stuff.

Devi Ever Cherry pop. awesome Fuzz.

i also hear that the new Swollen Pickle Fuzz is pretty good at nailing the QOTSA tone.

There are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many fuzzes, it's just sick. Some really good ones have been named already. I think QUOTSA uses a Big Muff, they're pretty cheap also. Maybe a Z.Vex Fuzz Factory, but might be over your budget. A Fuzz Factory can do literally everything if you know how to set it up.

Gawd, all the fuzz *****s are coming out of the hills.
