    Yet another fuzz thread. I'm looking for a fuzz that has good note definition for chords and arpeggios. Something fat, like a tonebender.

    I already have a Fuzz Probe, Gasbender MKII, Skreddy Ernie, Dice Works Finale, Lovepedal White Dragon, and a JH-F1.

    The White Dragon seems the best at defining individual notes, but when I set it for a fat, deep fuzz it gets a little muddy. It's really hard to get that big, fat, chewy sound and still hear the notes.

    Any recommendations?

    BYOC tonebender set to minimum gain. It is probably going to knock my Pro Analog MKIII off the board.

    It depends on the chords. If you like slammin' chords in the stoner vein the new MXR Classic Fuzz is a good way to go. It has plenty of 60's vibe and good low end sludge while retaining note definition. It stacks up great with an overdriven Marshall type amp.

    The Skreddy Screwdrive might get you there. Fuzz / overdrive hybrid that workes pretty well with chords.

    Not a Tonebender per-se but a Fuzz Face based pedal, the Phoenix Electronics Supernova is amazing ... tons of tweakability from all out angry fuzz to controlled and defined crunch. Great, great pedal ... grossly underrated.
