Hi guys,

I'm planning on buying a fuzz pedal but I don't know what to buy.
My budget it $50 and I'm willing to go used. I've been looking at the Electro Harmonix Nano Fuzz and the Boss FZ-5 but unfortunately no one ships the boss fz-5 to my country and we don't have any boss retailers.

Please give more suggestions, thanks.

Save up, really, a crappy 50 dollar fuzz is most likely to sound crappy, muddy and uninspiring


How is the exh nano muff or little big muff? I'd be willing to stretch to $60

i have the big muff pi, it's not bad.

It's got a lot of low end, not exactly my style.

but, on a budget it is pretty nice
It's over simplified, So what!

Big ones can be fun in some ways but generally, they are a pain in the ass.

You could build one for dirt cheap, just go to an electronic store and they should have all the parts you need.

What kind of sounds do you want? Try looking for a used Dunlop Fuzz Face or a EHX Big Muff.


im thinking purple haze intro/dani california solo kind of sound (its the same riff)

The nano muff is pretty much an overdrive. The double muff has more a fuzz characteristic and sounds a bit more natural than a standard big muff, as that doesn't seem to be the sound you're looking for.
