If you could, suggest things under $200.

I'm a fan of the dunlop Fuzz Face, but ive heard mixed reviews from others. you can definitely get a decent Hendrix/Iron Butterfly sound out of it.

Arbiter Fuzz Face, ProCo Rat, ZVEX Fuzz Factory.. Try them.

I think Dave Gilmour used an Electro-Hamonix Big Muff. You should try that (the american and russian version of it) too.

I'll second the Fuzz Face, it produces a very fuzzy tone.

for the fuzz face, dunlop or generic, like anolog man, etc.

by the way, the EHX big Muff sucks for what I want.

I recently bought a Vox Tonebender off ebay it sounds really raunchy but in a good way, definatly get some great purple haze, no quarter, and how many more times tones.

Roger Mayer Classic fuzz.

Don't get a Dunlop Fuzz Face, they're awful.

I had one a while ago, and it just wasn't very good sounding. VERY dull.

IMO the dunlop fuzz faces arent that good. but the clips of the HENDRIX sig fuzz face on dunlop's site is awesome, Si BC108s.

you can also try the BYOC ultimate fuzz, comes with AC128s and BC108s too. roger mayer, fulltone soulbender. check tonefactor too.

The thing with the Hendrix sig is that it's got silicon transistors, which isn't vintage correct. Germanium would definitely give you a more Hendrixy tone.

Not sure about Hendrix and the others, but Page used the Sola Sound Tonebender MKII. You can build your own like me
