i play a les paul with a marshall, hopefully soon a fender deville. i have been wanting a fuzz for a while, i play classic rock, some metal, and more classic rock. i have been looking at the wattson fuzz, so something comparable


Suggestions?
Thoughts?

I love the Wattson and it certainly works well with humbuckers unlike a lot of fuzzes. In mode 2 the fuzz is deep and swirling and makes riffs sound huge. I like the pedal so much that I own two...one for the house and the other for the studio.

thanks for your advice, are there any comparable fuzzes for less of the price? i was also looking at the musket fuzz by blackout effectors

I play LP Marshall as well and I found the treble booster more to my liking than fuzz with this combo. Fuzz is still great but the Beano boost really brought the combo to life. YMMV. :drink

I play a Les Paul and the Stomp Under Foot Hellephant is the best Fuzz I've played (and I went through a bunch to get there, most more expensive). At $125 for a hand-made pedal, it's easily the best fuzz deal out there. Your guitar's volume knob decides whether it's an OD or a thick fuzz.

I got the Wattson Fuzz to use instead of my Univox Superfuzz for reliability -- it's almost a perfect clone. It's a pretty devastating fuzz, though, especially if I'm playing through an already cranked amp :Devil No chords, only single note stuff. On a clean amp, it's not as over-the-top. The octave on it's good on the neck pickup as well.

Other than this, I've been using a Fulltone Octafuzz instead of hassling with my pedalboard. The toggle on the fuzz setting is more musical to my ears and blends better with an already cranked amp. Just my opinion. Not sure if this helps and I wish you luck in your fuzz search.

all of them are good.
I second this.


Current favorite: The Hoof. I can see why you never see them used, and local places run out of stock within days. I don't want another 'muff' based fuzz. Was looking at SUF for while, but the Hoof made me stop looking at fuzz pedals.

+1 for the LP into a Marshall, I prefer the Beano Boost. Strat into a Marshall, then I like the Sunface.

wow this is doomerific! :Devil

Sounds similar to my univox superfuzz though...Im gonna stand by my earlier statement: they (fuzz) are all good.


We live in the age of great fuzz right now.

THE JEN JUMBO FUZZ or the Dallas Arbiter Jumbo fuzz is on of the best fuzz's for classic rock and metal...Ive said a milion time's before and I will say it a million time's again....Here is a sound clip of it in more of a dark more with a hallow body guitar.
