Hey guys,

Sold my fuzz as I wanted to try something different. I also had plans to buy tuner too (korg pitchblack).

But as Im going away in about a month, I cant afford both.

I wanted to buy the MJM London Fuzz as it looks so nice. But then I think I need to finally purchase a pedal tuner as I gig alot.

My birthdays coming up in september so I can get one of these then, but what should I get now?

Are there any decent mjm fuzz clones that are cheap and of good quality? Or should I just dismiss clones?

What first? Ideas and thoughts?

Thanks, Luke

The MJM construction is pretty rough from what I've seen. Any good Ge FF clone will get you there, many will have better construction and adjustable bias which the MJM lacks. Try an Analog Man Sun Face for like $10-$15 more. A pedal tuner is probably more practical but a fuzz is more fun to play with.

Is it worth building a fuzz? http://www.buildyourownclone.com/octavefuzz.html

that looks cool.

This way, I could about afford both a fuzz and tuner...

Or should I not look into building one?

I want a creamy, thick fuzz with loads of sustain

I built mine. It sounded nice, I just don't use it so I sold it. They're really simple circuits. The transistors that the BYOC kits come with are fairly nice too, I just think it's a bit overpriced as mine was $40 sourcing parts myself.
