Hey guys,

I LOVE fuzz and I'm looking into buying a fuzz face. The only problem being, there are sooooo many and I have no idea which to get. I don't really know the differences between them, but I know I'm going for serious vintage fuzz tones (Clapton, Hendrix, Johnson). I'd be willing to go vintage, but only if you guys can really think it's worth it. I was aiming to spend $200 or less, but I'll go up to $500-$600 if it's REALLY necessary but it'd take a bit of convincing to get that high. Thanks you guys!! I really appreciate it!!

I think guitarist magazine had a nice demo with fuzz faces in it on youtube.

Anyway, I'd go for some germanium fuzz face.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I just recently got my hand on a Wampler Red Velvet.

So far, my favorite fuzz ever. It gets from the really spongy and soft sounding fuzz to the nasally sounding fizz of something like the muff.
I'm always screwing with my rig. Muh chilluns:
Warmoth NRFR strat JB/Jazz
Mesa Boogie Royal Atlantic, Diezel 2x12
Turbo tuner, J Cantrell wah, Alesis 3630
Green Rhino, Wampler Velvet, Strymon ElCap/Lex, Phase 45
Fuzz factorys are the best thing ever, seriously, they do like everything from weird noises to subtle distortionz

This, if your budget agrees. Otherwise dallas arbiter reissues are relatively inexpensive and sound the best for tones you are going for, IMO. I personally dislike the mini's, purely on aesthetics, but if you plan on putting it on a board then get a mini.
