Basically the tone I am looking for would sound as if the very speaker cones were about the tear apart from the sheer massiveness of the sound. Probably something like electric wizard or fu manchu. Right now Im considering these 3:

are there any other options I have to get that Crushing DEEP fuzz sound I want??

Don't buy the fuzz war because the bloke that builds them is a prick and chances are it will be be faulty. The big muff can definately get the sound you are after but the lack of mids means you lose it in the mix. the musket has sort of rectified this by adding a mids knob. my vote is for the musket fuzz.
#8
The Musket Fuzz is essentially a vintage Big Muff circuit with more control over the sound, so DEFINITELY get that before the USA Muff.
#10
I suggest that you hunt down a Boss FZ-2 as it is one of the most crushing, dense fuzzes evar.

Far from thick and crushing. Thin and nasally fuzz. Yuck.

+1 for the FZ-2, it's the actual fuzz that Electric Wizard uses. Of the three that you posted, I'd go with the Musket Fuzz, but you may also want to look into some early-90's green box Sovtek Muffs.
#14
I have the US Big Muff and it'll do what you want, but I'm ridiculously partial to Devi Ever and Dwarfcraft Pedals. A Devi Ever Aenima, Soda Meiser or Hyperion would work, and a Dwarfcraft Shiva would also work really well.
#15
Way Huge Swollen Pickle mkII.

Its spendy, but I'm just about ready to rob my local GC for one. Even through a somewhat bad amp like an MG, this thing sounds ****ing huge. As the name implies. And it has a crapload of tones available, theres 5 knobs and they all have huge sweeps.
#16
I love the sound of my Pro Tone Pedals Monster Fuzz but the artwork means it is pricier than some others but well worth it IMO one of the deepest most saturated fuzzes i've ever heard

The Judge is a Fuzz factory clone, not a big muff clone. If you want huge fuzz, don't get a fizz factory.

Fixed

Not that I don't like it in certain applications (Muse, anyone?), just as a whole it just sounds like fizz to me.

It's true, DBA pedals are poorly designed and built. It has been confirmed on DIY sites multiple times.
I have another rec, the Subdecay F-Bomb. It's thick as hell and just oozes of fatness. Check it out.

^yeh when they work, just not when you send it back to get fixed and he just ignores all your attempts to get in contact with him thus taking your money and keeping his pedal.

I second the Musket Fuzz. Here's others to check out. Sorry if they've already been recommended.
Devi Ever:
- Shoegazer (might not have enough low end)
- Aenima
- Soda Meiser
- Hyperion
Dwarfcraft Shiva
Subdecay F-Bomb
BYOC Triangle Muff
Stomp Under Foot Son of a Bee
Fuzzhugger AB Synth

There's a million great fuzzes.

get a big muff pi USA. put the volume up to full on the pedal to act like a boost. dial the tone around the middle (but each to his own i suppose) and add only abit of sustain since it gets very fuzzy but abit fizzy sounding with too much sustain, the sustain is basically the fuzz amount, i keep it around 7 or 8 o clock.

Doin this and messing with the amp for abit will give you the boosted amp with the fuzz on top, you'll get a seriously bassy full fuzztone but it will sound 100times nicer if the amp is cranked too.
#30
Another +1 to Dwarfcraft, Aen knows what he's doing and he's an amazing guy to talk to. I'll be picking up his Shiva relatively soon.

Oh yea, and as cool as the Fuzz War sounds, the soldering and components are shite. Have a look at this inside of one. It's like a monkey was handed a soldering gun and a fuzz box.

Oliver Ackermann is a touring musician in APTBS and the other main guy (i forget his name) is in a band called Sisters. They have other things in their lives too, I'm afraid. Oliver is a ****ing cool guy, he replies to messages on facebook, of all things, in detail. He knows his shit. You're on the other side of the world, I expect it wasn't completely DBA's fault that it took so long.

A Fuzz Face clone wont do it.

Death By Audio fuzzes or the Musket Fuzz should though, or the SUF Son of a Bee.
