The Danelectro Cool Cat Fuzz is real cheap and sounds great as well. The knobs are kind of annoying but I got over it. I don't think there's a better value available for a fuzz pedal, you can get one for around $30.

The Ox fuzz is only $175. and sounds amazing. Warm and fuzzy, everything from subtle to over the top. Roll back your git vol. a tad and it cleans up.
Top quality hand built germainium fuzz.
Sounds good with all my gits and amps, even works great with a Liverpool, direct to the board !!

^^^Not cheap. When I think cheap, definitely under $100, maybe even $75. I think you have some good options listed above.

Why not save up and get something better than the "cheapest" and most likely you will tire of quickly? You can thank me later.:console

You can usually find used Tonefactor/Mojo Hand Huckleberry's for around $100 or under, great sounding/versatile fuzz (leans towards the fuzzface camp) that cleans up fairly well.

Both "cheapest" and "best" are 100% subjective but for some one like me who is poor the big muff with tone wicker is cheap and regardless of the price it is one of the best pedals around!

Also you can get vintage big muffs on ebay for under $100. usually the 3034 or 1322 IC unit.


The BMPTW is great though, I bought one as soon as it was released and I plan on buying another to keep in the box as a back up should something happen to my first and I need one before I can repair it.

I've actually modded some of my other big muffs,like my early green sovtek, to have permanent wicker,among other mods, (no switches for it), love it.

look for a used mcfuzz - one just sold on ebay for just over 100 clams - in the same ballpark as the DAM dragnfly hybrid and dines out on the screwdriver - imho naturally!

The OP never defined "cheapest", so it's hard to make a suggestion. I don't use fuzz, but my definition of cheap is more along the Dano lines than a $100 pedal.

Perhaps you could give a price range?
