I love fuzz, in general

muffs, benders, fuzz faces, oh my!

love all the fuzzes I have, but been on a serious fuzz face kick lately, lotsa of tones between the Monsterpiece NPN and FoxRox CC Hybrid

both have their own vibe, but both kill :bow

:JAM

right there with ya! Right now I've got both Foxroxs, small box Fulltone '69 and '70, and an MJM Foxy Fuzz (BMP clone). Those are my favorites after trying about a dozen others and I let the rest go....but they were all different, all fun!

Loving my Eric Johnson Signature Fuzz. It seems to have a little more sizzle and punch than my old purple Fulltone '70 (which I love as well).

Love Fuzz! Dunlop Fuzz Face, ditched the stock circuit and put in my own take on a Germanium Arbiter Fuzz, Jimi Hendrix Signature Fuzz, still playing around with it. Just finished a BC183L Fuzz that smokes but I still need to box it up.

I just realized I need more Fuzz!

Yup! Recently been thinking of picking up a B.A. Scarab Deluxe for my Tonebender needs. I hear it's crazy goood.

depends, the Scarab Deluxe is an excellent pedal, but it doesn't do the trick for pure tone bender tones

it's based off the jumbo bender, which is closely related to the muff circuit, four silicon transistors

again, it's an awesome pedal, but not a pure bender

Monsterpiece MKIII 5 knob is a killer bender, with 3 germanium transistors and a pure bender circuit, still has plenty of gain. seriously, I've never seen a germanium fuzz with so much gain. tons and tons of sounds, you can bypass the tone pot, tweak the transistor and input bias. it loves Zeppelin and Les Pauls! but can get stuff as extreme as Queens of the Stoneage fuzz tones, bassey Kyuss stuff too.

Also Earthquaker Devices Tone Reaper is a great 3 knob bender

you'll like either pedal though

^ Thanks for the recommendations, will check 'em out! Yeah, I've never owned a bender before so I'm just going with the "majority" pick, but I think I'll dig deeper.

Cheers bud.

similar price for the ones I mentioned, actually a bit cheaper

I neglected to mention just how much gain the MKIII has, up there with any muff, and that's a lot of gain. Fuzz knob is usable through full sweep too.

best of luck in your fuzz ventures!

Why is the red one at top right not smiling?

My guess is that Dunlop couldn't use the smile that says "Dallas-Arbiter England". Because around that time the grey Arbiter (left) ones from England was re-issued. Maybe.
