I recently have been considering getting a Big Muff Fuzz pedal, due to the fact that I really dig that old late 60s garage rock roar, and these things are notoriously fuzzed out pedals. I love a decent amount of low end and lots of crunch (basically volume/gain) so I was wondering, Which one of these would be right for me?

the Big Muff does the kind of doom metal totally fuzzed out thing perfectly
not really exactly like Tony Iommi but it will do Black Sabbath in a duly righteousness manner

my advice is get one just for the hell of it


but the Fuzz Face I made myself does do the ripped-up-angry-speaker much better....
Black Sabbath riffs sound awesome through both pedals....but that may be due to the fact that its Black Sabbath


edit: I just found a clip of myself playing Symptom of the Universe through the big muff

bliss

Big Muff works for Sabbath. Very well, in fact.

Works for Electric Wizard too.

Metal Muff works too.

Doom/Stoner metal ftw.

I don't know, I always felt the BMP was sort of lacking in low end - you might try something like the BBE free fuzz. I don't know if it would have enough 'roar' for what your talking, but it certainly felt more vintage and was much more focused on the lower register.

Try the russian big muff or little big muff if you need a sludgey bassy sound

You saying the Russian muff has more bass to it?

Well... I've been listening to ALOT of clips

From clones, to other types of fuzz pedals, I'm starting to think buying The Russian Big muff... and doing a few mods to it would be best for me

It just sounds more, well, dark and gurrrish... more mean and sinister, less treble, less 60s fuzz, and more like, I'm on a Bad trip. Thats what i'm talkin bout!
