Looking for one with that nice driving, crunchy, chimey fuzz face tone....not the super liquidy eric johnson ones.

It's the same fuzz face configuration - the difference between the long smooth sustain and the crunchier sounds is where you set the volume control on your guitar. Compare the following - all with the same setup, different volume settings on the guitar.
Try all five at the same time!
Boy...a big +1 from me regarding your post!Originally posted by PlexiBreath
The '69 Pedal is my favorite for nailing the Fuzz Face tone. But for what you are discribing, the best pedal I've played in the Fuzz Face family is the McFuzz from PedalWorks. It's crunchy and chimey, not the french horn tone of most FuzzFaces. It's a damn sweet pedal.
+1 on the McFuzz and McFuzz Hot.Originally posted by meterman
Yep, the McFuzzes are good'uns......I could never decide which I liked better, the standard or the Hot!
The McFuzz Standard has less gain and is very fat and smooth in general. The Hot has higher gain and more bite, more treble and 'sizzle'. The Standard is probably more versatile b/c it cleans up better and I found it very useful for crunchy rhythm tones, but the Hot just rocks balls.......Originally posted by threm
Exodus, if you could say anything about the diffeence between the two I`m all ears.

Thanks guys, I saw this combined custom pedal Bob made called Hades, Standard on one side, Hot on the other. But for sustainy, searing (is that the right word?) Gilmourish type solos/sounds the Hot would be your first choice?Originally posted by exodus
I'd agree with meterman. But when you get down to it-- Bob will make it anyway you want, so you're really not limited by 2 strict versions.
