I don't really have experience in using fuzz pedals, but I like the sound. It sounds like some of the tones off of the new Switchfoot album are fuzz pedalesque. I could be mistaken, but it sounds like it. What fuzz could emulate that tone???

Mess Of Me is off the Hello Hurricane album is also a good representation

I mostly enjoy an amp sounding distortion or a pedal induced light drive, but fuzz offers a texture that I rather enjoy for less poppy sounding guitar and more experimental music perhaps. I dig the thick yet somewhat fuzz buzz on the low strings and the screaming tone on the high strings.

Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi is a very nice fuzz pedal. Gives a fat, creamy fuzz and sustain. It's a very nice pedal and budget-friendly (60€ ~ $72). Personally I tried it and loved it, so now it's under my feet. There are of course some better, higher quality fuzz pedals like the Fuzz Factory by Z.Vex. Check them out all.

Its all about taste man. Just play a bunch at G center or something and see what you like. I bought a Big muff Pi(NYC) and love it.

If you're talking about the Swollen Pickle, it'll be good for Muff tones as it's basically a modded Big Muff circuit. I'd take it over the current NYC BMP variants.

Can't go wrong with any of Matts clones.


This; I'll be getting one soon, and the clips sound absolutely great. Not to mention the youtube demos I've seen.

Try a few Devi Ever pedals if you can get your hands on them.

If you go this route, look into a Vintage Fuzz Master or a Hyperion. Maybe a Soda Meiser.


I think that most of those tones (the new album is fantastic! I'm surprised Switchfoot hasn't started using fuzz sooner) sound like a Big Muff though. I'm not a huge fan of the newer models, so look into a Stomp Under Foot clone of a vintage one. Or look at a Blackout Effectors Musket Fuzz.

Check this out. Extremely budget-friendly (Like $30 or $40 USD I think), and sounds pretty good.

On the other end of the spectrum, there's the Blackout Effectors Fix'd Fuzz which does anything and everything ever done by a fuzz pedal. Ever. I have one and completely love it to death. However, it's $175 USD...

If you could manage to put down that much cash, it would be well worth it.
