is there a difference between fuzz pedals (such as a fuzzface) and overdrive or tubescreamer pedals (such as the TS808)?

- vox ac15

- ibanez TS808 tubescreamer

fuzz scratches up your tone.. overdrive makes your amp sound like its being maxed out on volume, EQ, etc.

listen to Jimi Hendrix, that is the tone of a fuzz pedal
now listen to Nirvana and Pearl Jam, that is a TS808
BIG difference
TubeScreamer pedals are nice

A bunch of funky pedals

well the ehx germanium overdrive can sound like both from what ive heard on youtube. they dont officially say it can sound like fuzz but i reckon it does on some settings.
