    ideas?

    I need something to get me a lot of thick gain, but not completely indescernible. Wall of noise type capabilities when run into reverb. Fuzz War is too crazy, but I want to have something slightly akin to the Fuzz Factory, but it isn't a fuzz factory. Tone, Gain and volume controls are preferred.

    There are lots!

    Basic Audio Alter-Destiny is an aggressive, super-flexible take on a Big Muff if you like that kind of thing:


    All of Basic Audio's fuzzes are Silicon.

    cool pedal, really. insanely cool. But a little outside of what I'm interested in paying. I'm genuinely hoping to stay under $200.

    I like my foxrox hot silicon. It's pretty versatile.

    Well right now, the Alter-Destiny is looking prime. I was also thinking of the Fuzz Peaks? But it's kind of trending right now and I assume it will be hard to get one for a good little while.

    Flexible, aggressive, thick, silicon, like a Fuzz Factory but not like a Fuzz Factory, wall of sound but not too crazy, under $200...

    Seriously is the sensible thing to choose, but am I an asshole for thinking that those are just too boring? Aesthetically more-so than sonically but...eh. Also, nice sn man.

    +1, but may I add that I'm also a "riff @ 1:20" guy, too? -e

    Earthbound Audio Centurion. More Fuzz Face than Fuzz Factory, but sounds fantastic.

    OOps. Forgot to add that the Blackout Effectors Musket and Blunderbuss both have three-band EQ (although the bass control is a HPF) and the Pre knob does cool things to the fuzz texture. The BE Fix'd Fuzz Deluxe is awesome, too, and, in addition to having two different fuzz textures and a good tone control, the Boost control, like the Pre control on the aforementioned, affects the texture. I love them all. -E

    EQD dirt transmitter is pretty flexible. Not as crazy as some of the suggestions but i use it a ton. Price is nice too
