I'm looking for a fuzz that gives that gated sort of vercroish zipper sound. I know that the Zvex Fuzz Factory can do it, and I have heard good things about the AM Peppermint Fuzz, but do you have a go to pedal for this tone? I'd like to know what to look at.

I've got a Zvex Fuzz Probe and a Dr. Scientist Frazz Dazzler on my board. They are both gated. The Fuzz Probe is my go to for that sound, but the Frazz can get close as well. The Frazz can also get alot nastier, which I dig.

Yep the AM Dark Peppermint Fuzz does this well. Not as extreme as the Fuzz Factory but still sweet! Does plenty else too. Great for that broken speaker kind of OD with the vol rolled right back! (and i mean RIGHT back, there is A LOT of gain on tap in this thing for a germanium fuzz)

Put it in front of a Muff set relatively neutral and with the bias knob set to 0 (7 oclock) on the DPF and you have the fattest "velcro" fuzz in town!
