What's the best fuzz pedal?
There are many good pedals out there, and many of them are sweet fuzzy fuzz pedals. Which is the best one? Well, let's name a few! I'll include links to the manufacturer page, if I find one.
The fuzz pedal I use the most nowadays is the CC Hybrid Fuzz. It has both silicon and germanium transistors, and it sounds great. I can get a really nice Hendrix style tone from it, and it cleans up nicely.
I love the sound of a good fuzz. I had been using the Das Fuzz GE, and I use it with a distortion pedal or with the Bad Monkey. It gets noisy, but the tone is very sweet. I am also very interested in getting a Fuzz Factory, just because it sounds so crazy! It's like the ultimate fuzz pedal, since it can produce so many different sounds. It can be made to sound more "normal" too.
By the way, also have a look at the best overdrive pedal write up.
There's so many more out there, I know! Post your fuzz pedal comments if you
think I missed any top notch fuzz pedals!
Here are some ideas for pedals you can get from Amazon.
