    I just finished building a Gretsch Controfuzz clone and I would have to say that it is a pretty cool sounding fuzz.

    And with the blend knob below 12 o'clock you can get this weird fuzz bloom effect were the note starts out cleanish and slowly fuzzes up as it decays.

    Very cool.

    I keep coming back to a good Ge Fuzz Face clone; add P90s and some analog delay and I'm all set up for a few hours of noodling.
    For heavier stuff I like the Effector 13 Soda-meiser.

    MJM London Fuzz here...just picked up a used one for 95 bucks. It seems to be a pretty good pedal. I also like the OX Fuzz and the Analogman. We'll see how this one goes.

    Visual Sound Angry Fuzz. It can mix in upper octave and get you to Hendrix teritory. Fuzz on it's own is great too.

    I just picked up a Seymour Duncan Tweak Fuzz on Ebay and I'm really digging it. It's basically a silicon Fuzz Face with a "Tweak" knob that lets you select from six eq profiles by changing the input capacitor. It will give you everything from a bright Kinks rasp to huge dark thunder. Very cool. My only problem with it was the range of the volume knob -- the way it comes stock, unity gain can only be reached with the knob almost all the way up -- but I found a simple mod that improved it. I'm very happy with this thing.

    Bonus points for the SMD design being so mod-friendly. There are full-sized solder holes adjacent to all the microscopic resistors and transistors, and the capacitors are full-sized. And the parts are clearly numbered on the PCB.

    This monster into my Bassman & 4X12 cab . . . Pure Evil :twisted::twisted::twisted:





    Saying that, it is a KILLER clean boost too, with just a hint of grit.

    I'm going with my Cornell 1st Fuzz for sure (on the right).
