Full sounding, Fat Fuzz ... Go!

Getting my 1st fuzz. Kind of undecided. Have mostly been looking at the Astrotone since its the only one ive tried out. Just moved to Brazil so there is 0 chance of trying them out. I strangely cannot seem to find a good sounding demo for any fuzz to be honest. All sound at tho the bass has been dialed out.

I have tried the astro trone tho and loved it. Sounded nothing like the demo's to me. Im basically looking for more "controlled" kind of fuzz. Something that retains low end goodness and cuts thru. Something I could possibly stack with a Shiba Drive or BB. I play a strat thru a Port City Pearl for what its worth.

Im guessing I will be using it more for leads. To kick on with whatever overdriven tone is going on at the moment.

Any other suggestions besides the Astrotone?

Start with a Mojo Hand Colossus....and you'll NEVER look back. It's a phenomenal Fuzz IMO, because of the EQ capabilities.

Cool - I have one coming that should arrive tomorrow! Looking forward to it. It will be my second Big Muff type; the Little Big Muff being the first. I really like the Little Big Muff, but it makes all my other dirt pedals sound so small and boxy :) It seems the Colossus may do the same.

The Pharaoh is relatively full and fat, plus it stacks well.
Man cant seem to find this for sale anywhere! Im short on time as I have a friend moving down to Brazil from the states in a month. I need to get the pedal to him by them so he can bring it down.

Obviously there's so many options on your table, I'll try and be different. My first choice: Any Colorsound fuzz or Tonebenber fuzz from Macari's UK. Secondary fun:
Alien Fuzz Bubble
Dunlop Bonamassa FF
Dentone 900 Pound Violin

Personally I'd just try a Dunlop before going boutique. Not so sure that boutique is worth the extra money for classic Fuzz Face tones anymore.

I have one of their Scratchy Snatch models and have had zero interest in any other fuzz pedals since getting it. It does everything, including thick, fat, bassy fuzz.
