I use a tube rig so no digital, and I am using it for hendrix primarily, but variety is a big plus. I will have a ts9 and vox wah as well as the blues jr and my strat. I have noiseless pickups so feedback is not an issue.

anyway 150$ is my limit, and I was looking at the big muff, fuzz face, octavio, and anything else you guys think. I thought that dunlop was a little full of **** about their products being used by jimi, I'd like a second opinion. I want jimi hendrix tone, and as much variety as possible.

vintage fuzz face clone, fulltone '69, fulltone '70, fulltone soulbender, and zVex Fuzz Factory. i'm sure i missed quite a few.

i'm sure '70 would land near $150. if u get those used, u might find them under $150. except the Fuzz Factory.

i'm making a fulltone '69 clone.

I am probably going brand name on this one, either dunlop or EH I think. the fulltones look good but are mostly discontinued or expensive, and I want something easy to find. the fender blender seemed to sound like ass, and the big muff wasn't great either, but if nothing much beats it I'll get the muff.

Anybody have any experience with the BBE Free Fuzz or the Voodoo Lab Superfuzz? I know those would be available at a Guitar Center but I haven't tried either so I don't really know how they sound, just going on reviews.

There's a big difference between best and most convenient.

Fulltone, ZVex, and Analogman are all available on eBay for about what you want to spend, and all crush the Big Muff (as much of an EHX fanboy as I can be).

Slats knows it^

A big muff is okay, as much as I like EHX though, there are plenty of better fuzzs out there, especially for hendrix-esque fuzz. And dont bother with the dunlop re-issue fuzz faces, they sound like ass, nothing like the originals which made 'em famous.

You need a fuzz aimed at lower-gained (fuzzed?) sounds for hendrix, the muff IMO has a too modern sound for it. Go e-bay and look for some of those mentioned above^ and you will not regret it.

i have the Roger Mayer Axis fuzz that jimi used on his BOLD AS LOVE album. and other than the classic fuzz, this is my favorite fuzz of all time. sadly it is out of your price range

For hendrix you will probably not beat the Roger Mayer models. I prefer the classic (warmer), but either one will get you spot onto a hendrix tone with your rig.
