Hi everyone, I just recently got a Blackstar Ht Club 40. So far I'm really loving this amp, and have started to look for a good fuzz pedal to go along with it (I play mostly psychedelic blues rock so, thats kind of a must). My budget right now is between, $80-$150, and it needs to be able to work with a dunlop classic crybaby. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, bye!

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

If you are looking for a blues rock tone though I would definitely focus on a fuzz face.

Couple options are
-Fulltone 69' or 70'
-Dunlop Fuzz Face (The Joe Bonamassa sig is very good or their Silicon)
-Analogman Sunface NKT-275 Low Gain White Dot (is pretty much regarded as the best Germanium Fuzz face, you can only find them used and they cost $280-350 on the used market)
-Monsterpiece NPN is a great fuzz, a little harder to find because they are more rare
-Zvex Fuzz Factory (Im not a fan but a lot of people like it)
-Keeley Fuzz Head (not my fav but a good pedal)

Thanks for the tips, I'm starting to consider going for the silicon fuzz face, since my local GC has one used. So does that usually go well with a dunlop classic crybaby wah wah pedal?

dunno about the classic, but i have a bog standard crybaby and a couple of fuzzface style pedals (not the dunlop version) and as long as you put the fuzz before the wah they sound fine (to my ears, anyway).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Some fuzzes are problematic when you place them AFTER a wah because they like a direct signal from the guitar and buffers from pedals affect them. Out of the ones mentioned I don't recommend the Fuzz Factory. It's too crazy sounding for the standard psychedelic stuff I'm assuming you're going for. I'd start by checking out the newer Fuzz Faces. See if you prefer germanium or silicon. From there you can check out different takes on them by different companies. I personally have a Black Arts Toneworks Pharaoh which gives me the option for either or no diode clipping. It's about $15 past your limit but all the other ones are even more expensive.

Edit: almost forgot to mention the EHX Big Muff. It's a different kind of fuzz. Perhaps you'll like that sound better. Most fuzzes are derived from either of those two.

musket fuzz is a more kick ass on the big muff side, but i think you are more looking for a fuzz face type things.

i am not extremely into fuzz, but when i played around with the musket at was awesome. too bad it wasn't mine.

That or the Algal Bloom are what I was gonna recommend for a muff fuzz.

Yeah that would be my suggestion, too- check out the classics and see what you think.

Granted, depending on exactly where you are that might not be possible, or your local shop might stock some obscure brands of boutique fuzzes or something like that.
