I'm looking for a good fuzz pedal that can get some old school nintendo like 8 bit sounds out of it.

any suggestions?

theres the legend of fuzz which is kinda made for that kinda sound


This. It's by a company called Devi Ever and they specialize in fuzz pedals. Definitely worth checking out.

For Queens sound get the Fulltone Ultimate-Octave. It's what John Homme uses.

You would be better off with a bitcrusher

If you have a ****ton of cash look into the Fuzz. Factory, it's a very versatile fuzz, you can get an insane amount of sounds, including the 8-bit you're looking for!

+1 on the Devi. Also check out the Houndstooth fuzz by her, it is pretty similar to the Bit/Legend of Fuzz but I prefer it. Also worth checking out is the Midfi glitch computer and the WMD geiger counter, both will do what you want but are a bit more money, but more versatile.

This!

I got some pretty cool 8-bit sounds with the bitcrusher in logic.
I also had my wah in the heel position for this whole ordeal...helped a ton to accomplish the old school video game sound.

Legend of Fuzz is where I'd start. Followed by the Phantom Arcade.

Josh Homme's tone is a strange one but you can get a pretty decent imitation using a muff fuzz, you could boost it from the front as well, that helps IMO.

Digitech Synth Wah will get you that old Nintendo game tone, without the fuzz so much. When I had one, I could nail the Super Mario Bros soundtrack, lol.

I have one of the Fulltone Ultimate Octaves and it does QOTSA really well. Plus it has a toggle that lets you go from a very scooped tone to a very mid-heavy tone. However, it does not respond very well to rolling off the guitar's volume knob like other fuzzes do. It won't get you a good, classic Hendrix-esque tone, but for a heavy, modern sounding fuzz it is pretty awesome. Plus the octave function is cool too (octave up, heard in a lot of QOTSA/White Stripes/Them Crooked Vultures songs.)
