Sounds like you want some variety of Muff...hang around and people will be here to persuade you to spend more and get a Fulltone instead
#3
Do not, ever buy a Fulltone as a fuzz pedal, it just won't do it. If you want a fuzz pedal, Big Muff's are pretty good, yes they will take away a little low end but oh well, it's not too bad, they sound good anyways.

Fulltone's not a fuzz pedal, and the Big Muff is barely a fuzz, actually. You should check out the Bootzilla Snarling Dogs wah with built in Fuzz if you're curious. However, a very good, very popular bass fuzz for about that price (I believe) is a Frantone Bassweet. If that's too much, look for the Tech 21 XXL Bass Edition.

If you say fuzz but actually mean distortion, you're fired.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Fitzy speaks the truth, the fuzz on my Bootzilla wah is pretty awesome. The pedal has limited control for the fuzz (and the wah too) but both sound full and powerful despite it. Granted with any fuzz you are going to have a hard time really hammering the true low end, but I get very good low midrange meyhem from the pedal.

Also if you do want both a wah and fuzz it's great, but when both effects are on at the same time it sounds different then a typical wah running into a fuzz pedal(certainly very different from pair of wah and distortion pedals). You just have to try one out.

I think MXR is coming out with a new bass fuzz. From what ive heard it sounds pretty sweet and handles low end really well.

How much do fuzz pedals usually sell for?


70-180 USD depending on brand and quality

I'm pretty sure the ZVex Woolly Mammoth is like... around $300 USD. It's one of the best fuzzes I've ever heard.

Here's a video demo of it:

Well I was leaving out super high end stuff. Just the average to moderate high end price range. Cause I wouldnt dish $300 for a fuzz pedal. And while that pedal sounds nice...not worth $300 in my book.

Fair enough. I'd rather buy a Line6 DL4, some strings, and a strap than a fuzz...
