    I've always used a TS or FET based Clean Booster right after the Fuzz to put the sound in "focus". Just use it enough to smooth out the rough edges and just enough mid frequency response to give it more prominence.

    Let's talk!

    Thats what Im hoping to do...a TS is low enough gain and still has that underlying clean tone under the OD...I was thinking it would be perfect for that use...

    If you run a TS after a Fuzz Face does it still sound like a fuzz or does it lose that fuzz quality...a lot of OD pedals, if placed after a fuzz just become a big nasty OD thats hard to control...I don't want that.

    Got any clips??:banana

    It's a whole lot smoother and you generally have to lower the volume on your guitar so the output doesn't become mush. It loses a little fizziness but gains a lot more tightness and focus.

    Thetangmang is right, lowering the guitar volume just a bit makes a huge difference.
