What Is Body Beast?
If you gain muscle you will gain weight. The fat fuzz factory is the one though. May 14, at 6: Gotta have mention of the Big Cheese fuzz! Thank you for answering the shoulder injury question. All of them look cool!!
What Equipment Is Needed For Body Beast?
Had my eye on the Fuzz Factory 7 for a while now. That thing is a beast fuzz. And that Dwarfcraft Silver Rose V2!!!! Anything Devi Ever even Devi Ever inspired, in this case is gonna be legit! That thing is terrifying.
My latest fuzz the Clusterfuzz by Function Fx is awesome and should get a mention. I have a serious pedal addiction problem and articles like this leave me wanting more…..
Cheers keep it up! A fuzz has been on my wishlist for sometime but the choices out there are endless. This is a good list to help me do some research. I would have loved to see a review of the Catalinbread Karma Suture pedal. Bit Quest is so wack, and I love it. All of these are great pedals. Such a crazy pedal. That Fraz Dazzler sounds really great. That being one that fulfills its purpose without having too many bells and whistles.
The Dwarfcraft Eau Claire should be on the list. I really need to get around to getting a decent fuzz pedal. A lot of these look like great options for me. The Fat Fuzz Factory pedal has some serious grind! I like the tremolo pulses as the notes ring out.
I think that good fuzz is really under rated and over used at the same time. A good fuzz that can range from just a spice to a wall of effect is a powerful tool for changing up the variety of your tone. Cool cool cool and cool! If I win the fuzz factory it migh just kick off the Abominable Demon Ling off my board.
Or accompany it ;. Most I try seem to like single coils. Monterey is my newest fuzz pedal that does a gazillion other things. I have a Fuzz Factory along with the spreadsheet of all of the settings people have contributed. Great versatility in such a small size. It would be nice to have the Fuzz Factory 7 though. The rest on this list of course all sound intriguing enough to go buy. Very in depth review. Hard to decide on your first Fuzz pedal with so many options but this helps show the benefits of each one.
Most of them are so damn old. Anyway it was interesting to know what is your favorite pedals are. I wanna try out a Fuzz Factory next! That thing is a beast. My heart belongs to Zvex fuzzes but damn does that hoof reaper sound good. Nice review, and so much power in these pedals. Fat Fuzz Factory is fantastic. I love me some 6 foot wide fuzz tone. So many different circuit and transistor options available make fuzz collecting so interesting and addicting.
That Rotary Fuzz would be super useful as it combines two effects I would normally pair in my signal chain. This narrows the choices down to Man, if only I had the scratch!
But even then it would still be impossible to choose: Great to see this list updated with some new additions. The old list really helped me decide on a fuzz pedal and now it looks like I have some more options to consider. Been wanting a bit crusher for awhile now. Reminds me of the old Atari games as a kid. The Old Blood Haunt is awesome! Great article though, I wish the If 6 was 9 were still produced: Got my eye on the PTD Rotobone.
Well, heck, all PTD. I honestly need a wiki to sort out his models and mods. Being able to hook up an expression pedal gives a nice wah option. Oh, if only I had a way of trying out every pedal on this list. Maybe if I win the Fat Fuzz Factory, that will cure my craving. Now all we need is an iteration that we can drop into the electronics cavity of a guitar a la Muse or Manson guitars, really. Oh man, more fuzzes for me to want. I see a lot of people complaining about how every builder has at least one fuzz if not more in their product lineup, like fuzz is some bland cookiecutter effect.
My life and bass rig needs some beautiful and thick sub fuzz!!!! This list gets crazier every year. This article provides a lot of food for thought! So much great fuzzy!! My favorite fuzz though? Amptweaker TightFuzz Pro, sick design and great tone. Also love that Janus Fuzz by Walrus Audio. Wow, what a great group of fuzz boxes. That thing was so gnarly for its size. As always, great post. There is such a thing as too many fuzz boxes. Zvex fat fuzz factory and the eqd hoof reaper take care of everything in my book.
Have tried both, have neither. I recently bought a used Fuzz Factory and started to experiment a bit with it. If only the newest evolution were not so pricey and hard to find here …. Absolutely phenominal, well made, and does everything I want a traditional box to do and then some. A comprehensive and detailed set of reviews! The fuzz factory 7 and fuzzolo seem like winners to me! Really want to try the Keeley Monterey as well!
Will we always trend towards more and more knobs? Certainly fun trying though. All these interesting takes on fuzz make me want to finally build one for myself, if I can take a break from synths! The name of the Dr. I had the ZVEX Wooly Mammoth in my collection for a year or two and it never really blew me away, except that it sounded unusual and snarly. Now Zvex has won back my heart. I have high hopes for the new Fuzz Factory. And I love that kitty design.
You guys should review a pedal from Abominable electronics. They are an independent pedal brand who mod and create pedals…. I tried the big muff pi tone wick. I liked it, super heavy with nice sustain. The fat fuzz factory is the one though. I researched a number of fuzz boxes on Youtube since there were so many available. I decided to purchase a vintage style over the more modern fuzz because I wanted a warmer sound.
I purchased it because of the reviews and think I found a sound tone that I have been wanting for forty years and not knowing it. The Hartman produces a warm sound with what can only be described as the most musical effect I have ever tried and combined with a Tube Screamer up front is to die for. One other reason i am convinced this may be one of the best pure fuzz box out there is that it made my JCM , a problematic Marshall for some because of diode clipping, sing like an older Marshall.
I also used a Kramer Artist aluminum alloy necked guitar which was responsible for the incredible sustain and contributed the plethora of harmonics that came out of the rig. It does exactly what I want a fuzz to do. You should give one a try. Single-note leads sound creamy and rounded, and complex chords all have their voices; nothing muddy or splatty or horrid.
Even works well with extended-range guitars. Leaving the Wampler velvet fuzz off the list is like leaving Picaso off a list of famous artists. I think Wampler velvet fuzz is not good enough to put on this list. There are so many excellent fuzz and Wampler is not that outstanding. Disappointed the Fuzzrocious Grey Stache was not on this list. I think it sounds better than many of the pedals that are — at least to my ears.
Does it not stack up? Or is it just not known well enough? This is just the perfect post for everyone who would like to understand the best fuzz distortion pedal. You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you not that I really would want to.. Excellent stuff, just great! Keep writing and thanks for the sharing!!! Please review if you ever happen to stumble with one of those… Fuzz Away! Thank you for putting this together.
I would add these for consideration in future lists:. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how a lot attempt you set to make this type of magnificent informative website.
Great list — but you seem to have missed out THE wildest one in my opinion! A small danish outfit… http: Noel Fuzz Japan 2. Dazatronyx Fuzz Australia 3. Helios Fuzz US 4. Its a great list of Fuzzes. I recently bought a Kafuzz. It sounds amazing and the design is so cool! A pedalbuilder from Holland. Please check this out. The last one is the Evil Mother Fuzzer.
All pedals are fully analog. My favorite fuzz currently is my Deviever Shoegazer. I also got one of the last ones just before Dwarfcraft Devices bought the company from Devi. I would like to get the pharaoh in the future because it nails that scooped Sabbath-like fuzz that Iommi claims he got by just using his Laney amps. It sounds just like the old records. Handmade, cool graphics and super fair price. Worth double what they charge.
Smooth as hell, and even compliments my 7-string guitars nicely! I absolutely love the way it sounds. I also played the Fuzz God and I must say I would love to own that too!!
What about Sasquatch from Tortuga Effects? You guys should check out the Blackout Effectors Blunderbuss. I believe it also has per amp boost knob as well to get a sort of overdrive fuzz combination. I tried the Rocket WTF and was left pondering the aptly named title. The Jupiter is still a good fuzz, just not quite as versatile as the Deux Ex…which kills when setting the mids notch filter anywhere from 3: I read two articles: I found it odd that the best pedals included at least 3 fuzz boxes that were not included in the top 20 fuzz boxes of I love that fat fuzz factory…so much nice variations of sounds….
You can get an oz fuzz in germanium Or silicon. Thanks for your consideration, Steph. I wish I could get my hands on that one. Love the fuzz fuzz factory!!! It seem to me that no mater where you go to get a top 10 list of pedal effects you are alway going to find Electro Harmonix in the mix. I just bought my first electric guitar and am in need of a pedal!!!
I need some distortion in my life!! Been enjoying my z-vex fuzz for several years and have been modding pedals with JHS forever. Looking forward to hopefully snagging something purtty from the list. There are probably Thousands of Fuzz Pedals out there it is difficult to sort through them all. Of course the local store usually has only 2 — 3 effects to choose from in any particular category. Thanks for the review And the Giveaway, Happy Holidays…..
Two phenomenal OD pedals and they can be bought at great prices. Only a few are available through Rocketride at TGT Being a BJFanatic, I just had to buy it.
Only 11 were made… so you could call it a limited-limited edition. Bjorn told me that he mainly made changes to the fuzz and boost controls. The boost was improved to full-range whereas the stock thinned out the fuzz sound undesirably. As for the fuzz, to his ears there was a lot of noise in the decay of notes so he built a type gate that chops off the undesirable effect. Anyhow, although this is very limited, it might be worth including this in your top Electro Harmonix is doing smaller versions of a lot of pedals now the nano line and other smaller housings of certain pedals , sometimes with less controls or features.
So amazing, Jamie really killed it with that one. Thank you for such informative, yet concise reviews on all these fuzz pedals. This is a good list. I have the big muff with tone wicker. Great one for the money. The Walrus Audio Janus intrigues me. Well to me a fuzz is very interesting because its just a little more than my TS HW. A few month ago I wasnt even thinking about fuzzys but for whatever reason I started thinking of using it to get a little more dirt into my blues solo sound.
Usually I dont write the following but in this cause I really would like to win one of theser pedals because It need experience in fuzz pedals to find the one that fits the best to each personal style.
All of these look superb, but some especially fit into the doomier stuff that I am writing just now! The newer Dunlop mini fuzz face germanium should also be mentioned. The Wampler Velvet Fuzz should be here. Cool history with the great effect that is Fuzz!
The fuzz tones are reasonably subdued but the clean blend allows for some cool sounds. With the gain dialed way back the distorted signal kicks in on the trails of the clean guitar. Which is pretty neat. You should do a review of an old school vintage Big Muff compared to one of the new Big Muffs, I think it would be awesome to see the differences! Like one channel JRC D, the other germanium transistor.
No one has ever done this. This is really useful thanks! The Hoof is so handy in terms of covering a vast range of BM tones and the Reaper does the same with every Bender era…I would insist that any fuzz junkie get this pedal!
Big fan of anything Red Witch. Like the sounds Belamy gets out the Fuzz Factory as well. Especially excited about the new Red Witch Violetta. Glad to see Jakob using it, hope to get some similar sounds out of it. Could definitely use a new fuzz pedal though, crushed the last one with my giant foot, traipsing around the den in the dark. What do pedal geeks and fans of music have in common? John Dwyer unveils a new nugget of awesome and we all win. I really love the Fat Fuzz Factory, its even more versatile than the original and you can come out with some pretty cool stuff out of it.
I aslo like the Death by Audio pedals, pretty crazy shit. What no Devi Ever? Been a while since she has made something but curious how the Console will sound. This makes me want more FUZZ!!! Or maybe Hoof Reaper? At least the Muff is still hanging in. Maybe I need to hear the new stuff. I like any fuzz with a splattery bottom end sounds gross right! Agree that this is a primo time for Fuzz and effects in general. So many indy builders putting their spin on so many pedals. Makes it very hard to manage the pedalboard.
So many great fuzzes out now! We are in the golden age of fuzz. The Hoofreaper is able to dial in so many variations of fuzz and distortion. My friend has one and he can dial in beautiful light fuzz without taking away from any tone! That said, these sound awesome. The Fuzz Factory is a classic!!! Gonna check out the new version soon, Thanks! I have the Fat Fuzz Factory.
Then I happened to see the Wah the fuzz? This thing has real tube OD, a muff type fuzz, an octave fuzz which can be used with or without the octave up and a fixed-wah. All 4 effects independent of each other. This should definitely be added to the list. You need to get some BlackArts Toneworks on this list.
I have no idea why they arent on the list. I have the pharaoh and its the most amazing fuzz pedal i have ever used.
The Fuzzhugger AB-Synth fuzz pedal seems worthy of this list. Very informative and interesting guide. It is always a pleasure to read about the most awesome effects ever used: It is a shame that the ones you listed are almost impossible to purchase in my country…. Thank you so much for posting this guide and for hosting this giveaway. This was very informative and fun to read, what a killer list. What a wonderful article.
I have the big muff pi tw and it is awesome. I love it on my bass especially, but on guitar it sounds excellent as well. Devi makes some awesome and unique fuzz pedals. I also love death by audio products. Hopefully I can build a clone of the fuzz war.
Some cool info here. The Hoof Reaper and Fat Fuzz factory are on my list to try. That being said I bet the Frantone Peach Fuzz is pretty awesome as well. Great article, I have been looking for a fuzz pedal for a long time and need to narrow it down so this helped.
However, it is out of circulation and can only be found used. My favorite is the Janus … ehhh wait.. Like the review made on those twelve pedals.
Hope next time you review the Enormous Door pedals! They were famous at winter NAMM This article has really opened my eyes to some amazing fuzz boxes. I dug the Death By Audio stuff and the Hoof, but these make the decision even harder. Not a bad job on choosing those BGE girls either. I think Creepyfinger effects should have had a mention on here, they are definitely on the top of the game. This Is a really great list.
Very great list, though I am a little surprised at the absence of Black Arts Toneworks. Death By Audio make great fuzz, but I was curious about Cusack. Excellent choices for fuzz pedals. I still think the tap function for the Cusack is a little odd. The EH Big Muff with tone wicker is easily the best choice for the price. For all around, the Hoof Reaper covers all your bases without being a small mind puzzle to solve the fat fuzz factory.
Keep up the articles. Love the sound of the Hoof Reaper! That octave low end really gives it a big chunk of the gnarly. Another pedal I love is the Austone Textone which is not made anymore. Any fuzz made by Analogman, I own the dark peppermint and its the Bomb. I own the Hoof Reaper, it is insanity. So many options for tone. Already had my eyes on a few others as well. Thank you for the giveaway!
Currently enjoying 3 fuzzalicious war toys: I am biased as I own one and like it with the buffer switch on. That Rainger looks pretty twisted! I see myself using it for a loooooooong time. Always thought the Fuzz Factory was awesome, but there is a massive difference between the original Vexter and the Fat FF!
Massive fan of all of the Big Muff pedals too! I really like that you guys included the weird stuff! I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of unfamiliar pedals on this list, thanks for the article. I also bought a Fuzz Factory a month before the Fat version came out… gutted! Man, all of these are making me drool. Feel lost without it. And the big muff is also Nice, i use the Big muff Pi and i really enjoy it, so i think the big muff with tone wicker is awesome!
Freakenstein and the Janus are definitely two favorites of mine. I think a Devi Ever Rocket or Shoegazer deserves to be on this list somewhere, though. Happy to see the Janus on the list. Brady makes great pedals and I love my Voyager overdrive. The Fuzz God II has been ruling my board for a little over a year. I would love to have all that fuzz in my life, on my face, for my axe, and my bass.
I use the Psychedelic Sasquatch by Tortuga Effects for my fuzz needs. Perhaps that should have been on the list as well. I know I love mine. Frankenstein fuzz to hear with my own ears how crazy it can get. Mayor kudos on the HoofReaper, by far the coolest most wicked fuzz pedal out there!
Thanks for this great rundown on the best fuzz pedals! I will be referring to this often, I expect. I would like to hear more about Wampler Pedals Fuzz Boxes as well. Maybe also some pedals where the manufacturers are now out of business and are getting hard to find. Fuzz circuits are so simple yet can be so diverse from maker to maker! Fuzz is the greatest type of effect out there.
I need a ZVEX fuzz factory. Frusciante uses one to awesome effect. Gotta also give it up to the Janus, it always looked like such an interesting pedal, and Walrus Audio makes fantastic pedals! I wish my tremolo could do what the Cusack does….
Nice overview, the Apocalypse totally caught my attention. It behaves very well on valve amps. Not very friendly with my wah.. Sometimes someone nails it right from the get go and VLAD certainly did yrs before the whole wacky named boutique effects pedal industry came about.
I have a Germanium Big Muff, it is hands down better than the Tone Wicker, adjustable voltage and bias and separate overdrive. Of the pedals you selected I really like the hoof reaper — and thought it may be a bit older my favourite fuzz is the Himmelstrutz Gramps. I must also give you props for selecting some more imaginative pedals.
Would live to give some of them a whirl!! Death By Audio Apocalypse looks like it could be just the right amount of dark-sounding fuzz for my ears I adore crushing Russian Muff tones. Love fuzz tones and the fuzz factory is one of my favourite fuzz pedals, too bad that the really good pedals are always that expensive.
Never played with a fuzz pedal, but I would think, after many years the EHX should have perfected the Big Muff to stay on top of all the other boutique companies. They definitely have one of the best prices. However Walrus keeps on slaying me with their pedals, I would love the Janus. However I would probably die if they released a Kerberos - Janus with an Iron Horse, how mental would that be! Also—damn your fine print for us poor fuzz heads outside of the US, I would gladly pay the shipping.
Wow, what an impressive array of fuzz pedals. Did not realize there was so much variety in controls. Bought a locally made fuzz, the Toxic Fuzz, earlier this year. Though the Hoof Reaper really got my attention….
Really hilarious review of the Red Witch fuzz pedal! Sounds great with a univibe for that great Robin Trower sound. First time I saw the Janus I thought it was a gimmicky folly.
Then I looked at demo videos because guys were gushing about it. Thing does some amazing tricks. Thanks for bringing all these killer fuzz pedals together. I love fuzz and I would like to use a few different pedals with varying settings as there are so many tonal possibilities. Great selection of pedals guys! Thanks for making my continuing search for great new tones a little easier but now I have to convince my wife I need one!
Argh… only other effects junkies understand! Diggin this site bigtime…! Gabriel, your passion is contagious. Any of these fuzz boxes would be awesome on my violins. Thanks for the chance to win one of these babies..
I think the Bigg Muff is awsome. You can never have too much fuzz,some good choices there but there are a bunch not on there as well!! Would love to win one of these. EQD Hoof is just amazing! I love most of the Muff clones out there, but I need more! You can never have too much fuzz! I was hoping to see the Blackout Effectors Very Special Twosome in this list, because that;s the one i swear by.
It was a toss-up between that and the Red Witch Fuzz God but I read too many bad reviews about the reliability of the Fuzz God so went for the Twosome. Nice list that fuzz factory is mental,certainly fuzz. Thanks for the reviews very helpful fantastic site. Thanks again for your great reviews, lol man I have decisions to make here!
Devi has more fuzz that I know what to do with and still tops my Must Have list. There are so many fuzz tone choices out there…almost too many. So many fuzz pedals! Thanks for compiling the pedals in one place.
I love getting my fuzz set in such a way that a chord seems as though it was magically played from one string. Would love to try some DBA fuzz one day. Yeah Cancion its really amazing..!!

By Kindle Customer Top Contributor: Cooking on May 24, I keep ordering this product so it's been great help to my dietary program. By Blessed on August 18, This is the only shake that really suppresses your appetite. This has good flavor too. Wish they provided more packets in the box to be cost worthy However it does work as described. By JD on May 23, Did exactly what I wanted. Kept me from getting hungry and eating too much. By Josie on February 23, I'm not sure if this really helped suppress my appetite; probably won't buy again in the near future other products I've tried seemed to work better.
