Mine is definately the Red Russian from Jonsey, playing from blues to stoner rock. Into a Mesa Stiletto. Stacked with an OD at times for thick wool and sustain.

I Need more fuzz so let us in on your current all time fuzz, what you use it for and what amp... Im sure some others will find it usefull... after a few pages ill grab the most suggested ran into a Marshal EL34 esque amp, pleaze. :band: Spank u

I have a number of Fuzz pedals but my favourite varies because it's determined by what I feel like playing at the time or the sound I'm after. At the moment it's the Fairfield Circuitry Unpleasant Surprise; from huge saturated Big Muff type fuzz to splattering gated fuzz. It sounds awesome.

For Big Muff sounds with versatility the Black Arts Toneworks Sarcophagus cant be beaten. High quality build and tone. Love the damn thing.

For classic fuzz face type tones, 60s and 70's and a bunch in-between the VFE Fuzz Duo cant be beaten. I have two, an early model (definitely more 60s orientated) and a later model (60s and 70s orientated). Both are different enough to keep but the later model covers an incredible amount of ground. Now out of production but worth finding second hand if versatility and awesome fuzz tones are a driving factor.

I have others but the three I mentioned arguably cover just about any fuzz need a man or woman may ever want.

Maestro MFZ-1!

Followed by 2 "not" fuzzes:

'Bling Rangemaster clone
Vick Colorsound Overdriver - massive output, more fuzz than overdrive - certainly unique.

Bling and Maestro in the same shot

Jeepers, I just plugged in a BuGG Raincoat yesterday (NPD thread to follow). Bumped my previous favourite, a Cornish G2 clone off my board within 10 minutes. Fabulous FUZZ on the Muff-type sound. More punch, and warm, but crispy. No mush, even with chords on the neck pup. Love it!!

I have a mess of fuzzes, mostly various Fuzz Face clones, but my favorite is still the Bling Fuzz. It's a little brighter than the FF clones and goes from a nice moderate overdrive to balls out fuzz.

As for the Fuzz Face variants, the Hybrid in my Foxrox Captain Coconut 2 is excellent. The CC2 is no longer made but you can still buy the Hybrid as a separate pedal. The Analogman Sun Face NKT275 is also excellent.

Fulltone Octafuzz, even just using it as a plain fuzz and ignoring the "Who Knows" octave sound.

I had a Joyo Voodoo Octave fuzz. Broke in 3 daggum hours.

Got a Big Muff Pi right now. I love the effect, but it's a bit bright and difficult to work with.

Got a Dunlop germanium Fuzz Face on the way, so we'll see how that is. Sounded rich and creamy on all the demos. Thinking it'll be good for my rhythm tone.

MIM Strat into an Orange 35RT.

One of my Dunlop collection, even the picture's fuzzy hahahaha
I use a vox ac30 and I use one of the fuzz faces to create huge sounding chords. I like to 'play the fuzz' by altering picking dynamics. You can make them smooth and fluid, spitty or even completely crap out. They're just good fun and get the creative juices flowing.

I just took my Throbak sTonebender off of my board and put a Voodoo Labs Superfuzz on. We will see how long it stays. I was pretty happy with the sTonebender but fuzz has been an endless quest.

My Boss FZ-2 Hyper Fuzz is still a main "go-to" for guitar and bass.

What's the acceptable time limit for owning a 'favourite' fuzz pedal? I was struck by the Bugg Raincoat and right now I'm feeling a bit addicted to using it. I haven't jammed with it in a rehearsal, nor played with it through my bigger cabs. Still it beckons....hmm...

"Current" would be the requirement for this thread! :p
