Im not sure which one to pick. Dunlop Arbiter Fuzz Face or Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz.

I mean the Dunlop is alot cheaper and I don't think my skill warrants 250.00 for a roger mayer.

Does the dunlop do a decent job of jimi hendrix. I have the digitech pedal but it just doesnt do me justice.

Thanks

if you mean the FZ-5, that's an overpriced piece of junk. It's effectively a mediocre imitation of a fuzzface, with some useless bit-crush effects built in labelled as maestro and octavia settings..
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I had the newer red Dunlop Fuzz Face. Through a decent amp, it sounded alright. I ran it through a little ss practice amp and it sounded very "banging on an aluminum shed". So, with a decent amp it will do ok. I ended up gutting it. I used the enclosure for my BYOC FF build.

Inexpensive Recommendations:
BYOC, if you are handy with a soldering iron.
Its sounds like you want a Ge Fuzz Face, but these Si Fuzz Faces are pretty decent. At your level, I don't think Si/Ge will matter.

I own the Roger Mayer. It's basically Hendrix's modded Silicon Fuzz Face and sounds great. Tons of sustain and grit, and even sounds good on chords. The Dunlop isn't so good and the Boss sucks.

thx guys. Roger mayer has many kinds of fuzz.

I think thats what im gonna get. Why waste money only to get a better one later.

Roger Mayer has a few diff models.the classic fuzz, the axis fuzz and the spirtfire.

Which one should i get. I want the most versatile one and I believe the roger mayer axis one is the best

Look up a company called "Devi Ever". They make a lot of inexpensive (less than $100) fuzz pedals. Lots of different variations so you can get something that sounds exactly the way you want.
