Ability to cut thru the mix. Also looking for usable overdrive tones along with a singing EJ lead tone with the twist of my strats volume knob.

Thanks for all of the great suggestions! In regard to the Lunar Module, does it clean up as well as say a Dunlop JHF1 BC108 Hendrix Fuzz Face?

And does the Analogman BC183 have a much different tone then the BC108 or 109? Clean up ability ok?

I would love to try out a Fulltone 69, but its a bit out of my price range as we speak. I did try out the Fulltone 69 MarkII and liked it, but I had a hard time cutting through the mix with that one. Same goes for the MJM Germanium London.

I am leaning toward silicon that cleans up well, with a lot of usable gain/fuzz and hopefully not to high of a noise gate.

Absolutely try a Fulltone '70. Way more cut and "spit" than the '69, has EJ tones in spades, and the incredible mids control that keeps the fundamental tone in tact but cuts through the mix better than your average Fuzzface.

This is a quote straight from Analog Mike:

"The BC183 transistors we got in 2011 are my favorite for a silicon fuzzface. They are a little warmer than the BC108 and still have plenty of fuzz. We got a large box of these, each individually hermetically sealed in a foil pack, with the same paint stripes on the back that they used in the original 1969 Fuzz face pedals. I think Eric Johnson has BC183 in the red fuzzface that he used for years, and they new 2012 Dunlop built Eric Johnson signature Fuzz Face seems to use these too."

70 is a great fuzz, but it's not wah-friendly.
