Hey could you guys recommend me a fuzz pedal to get? Budget is $150 and I'm looking to get sounds similar to Japandroids, The Pains of Being Pure at heart, and the Depreciation Guild.

Thanks

Big muff or little big muff. Both a bit cheaper than your budget. But great none the less.

A lot of indie bands use the [russian/sovtek, mainly?] big muff, some of them use distortion pedals with tone backed off, or '60s - '90s fuzz/distortion pedals that aren't available anymore.

I saw Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Japandroids live before, I don't remember much about their setup, other than the generic Fender Jazzmaster and Marshall/Vox/Fender Bassman stuff, although a big muff through a tube amp would do fine for an indie fuzz tone.
