I'm probably going to regret this, but here goes... I've been playing almost 30 years. Most of that time has been roots/classic rock/blues. I know that a number of artists I dig use fuzz pedals, but I've never been able to get there. I've owned a number of OD boxes and some full-on distortion pedals. But every time I plug into a fuzz I twiddle knobs and almost immediately turn it off. I like hearing definition and a bit of dynamics in my tone. I like being able to distinguish individual strings in chords, even at higher gain. I guess that's why I like my Boogie Mk V - it's "dry" - the notes do not smear together. Every fuzz pedal I've tried tends to be very "splatty" if that makes sense. There does not seem to be much in the way of dynamics. Notes are either silent, or part of a unified wall of smeared sound. There are some guys who can use that and do well with it. I'd like to figure it out, but am looking for a "gateway" fuzz if you will. Any ideas on a fuzz for under $150 that will allow me to start messing around with it? Something that retains at least a little bit of definition between strings and notes? Or is that just an inherent part of a fuzz's character?
