    I have want a fuzz that is thick, bassy, and really wooly. I have tried the Wooly Mammoth. I have a 78 Big Muff, but I want it even thicker and deeper than that.

    Right now this seems to be the best I can find:
    Earthquaker Devices Terminal Fuzz

    that sound 1:33 kinda nails it.

    The BAT Pharaoh can go really low and wooly.

    Into Fuzz Faces? The Diaz Sqaure Face and SM Fuzz are two wooly fuzzes I've tried.

    Or maybe something like a Superfuzz/Standard Fuzz... Verellen Big Spider?

    The pharaoh fuzz seems like a winner for bassy sounds for me!

    Big, bassy, and wooly? I am surprised, because the Terminal
    seems a far cry from those descriptors. Same for the Superfuzz/
    Standard Fuzz recommendations. Those all seem more cutting/biting
    fuzzes than big and bassy. :huh

    Some Superfuzzes have quite a bit of a scooped sound, which gives the impression that it's a big bassy pedal. Like the Leeds Fuzz. Petty scooped sound that's big and nasty, quite a bit of low end too.
    Verellen Big Spider is a bass fuzz I think, so it's got a ton of low end, and is nasty (from what I've heard).

    Add this after what ever fuzz you like and you can make it sound like that, VFE triumvirate boost/OD (low gain version).

    It's basically a dirty EQ, think of it like running your sound thru 3 way crossover then into running them into 3 chan strips on a mixing board and using those strips preamp to OD certain bands. Totally wipe out treble and then add some more OD to bass and mids and boost vol up, so thick you could use it as a force field to stop alien invasions.

    High gain version works to, you'll just be using lower end of gain range and it's a little buzzier in its implementation.
