    Addrock Geranium Fuzz. Fuzz Face style pedal with a few tweaks. Works equally well with a Marshall or a Fender amp.

    I have a 65 Bandmaster and I just picked up an older Russian Big Muff for $25. It is a sick fuzz with that amp and a LP.

    Fulltone Soul-Bender works great into (cleanish) Fender amps IMO

    I had a AM sunface up until the other day and ran it through my '65 Bandmaster occasionally. Sounded best if the amp was on 7 or higher for natural breakup. The BEST fuzz I ever plugged into.

    Classic fuzz that cleans up rolling off the volume-AM NOS is hands down the best (or buy a cheap Fuzzface and replace the transistors with the NOS).

    The Big Muff is more compressed than many fuzzes, cool sound but not what I think of as a "fuzz" more distortion.

    The Fender Blender is very cool into a cranked amp-fuzz and octave and all kinds of wierdness. Now that it's been reissued, it's kind of affordable...

    I saw somewhere else that Foxx is back with the Tone Machine. That's about as classic a fuzz as you could ask for.

    I 2nd the Fulltone Soulbender suggestion. Great vintage style fuzz, a good tone control to match a BF Fender (and dail in a cutting tone in a band situation), enough gain on tap to be very versatile.
