Best Cheap Fuzz

Hey, I've been looking for a Dano Cool Cat Fuzz v1, but haven't found one on CL.

If I go retail, which would I be happier with: Joyo or GFS?

Something else? Thanks.

When forum member .11 Gauge talks about fuzz, he knows of what he speaks. He recently posted about the merits of the Biyang Fuzz Star. If I needed a fuzz on a budget, that's what I'd be trying first.

I'm intimidated by it- honest!

I should just say "****** it!", and use the damn thing. It really does track the octave very well on single notes and has that strong fuzz...so it's not going anywhere-I'll hold onto it!

edit: wow, I think I just got censored on my own self- censoring...

Too much!

Regarding the Frenchy,Most of the time I have it on octave, the level set about 10, the fuzz at about 9 and the treble about 2 oclock, and the guitar volume about 6. If I pick lighter it stays kind of jangly, but if I hit it hard, I get that rubbery bicuit fuzz flying. Surprised at how touch sensitive it could get.

^^^ I gotta just take the FT on a gig and just go for it!

(BTW are those settings on Fuzz/Level 'clock' or '1-10'? Seems kind of low if you mean 'clock')

Trouble is I have been doing so many classic country/rockabilly or acoustic gigs in the past few months, that I just don't need anything more than a lower Gain OD. Need a few good R&R gigs where I can just open up and wail a bit- patience!

Yeah, I mean the "clock". Fuzz is acually a bit higher, around 10 oclock...but I get a good spaghetti western thing going there. and if I want to go nuts, everything is pressed maximum. it sounds good there, too.

Thanks, will revist the French Toast and see if we can be friends

The Biyang Fuzz Star is the business. Well built, dead quiet, and a wide range of tones from almost an overdrive to fuzztopia. One cannot beat it for the price.
I really respect 11 Gauge's opinion about pedals; I bought this due to his review. He was dead on right about it.

Dano cool cat v1....still dirt cheap but not as easy to find as the v2.
They do sound similar though.
Sounds sort of like a muff with a bit of normal distortion mixed in.Thunderous low end.
True bypass and well made.
No brainer really.
