    I really like my Analogman Sundial NKT-275 for "Hendrix stuff"...very thick sounding fuzz face clone.

    Depends on which Hendrix fuzz sound you want. Early Hendrix is germanium and easily achieved with the NKT-275; later Hendrix is silicon and I would recommend the new Foxrox Hot Silicon Fuzz Pedal.

    Couldn't agree more!

    Although I might add that the amp is very important too. You can't plug either of those fuzz face clones into a clean Fender and expect to get the glorious mid tones of Jimi's Marshall. Best to have a good, cranked Brit sounding tube amp to start with.

    +1 The amp, and cranking of said amp, are both important pieces of the Jimi tone puzzle, IMHO.

    I think all of the suggestions here are pretty spot on for vintage early Hendrix type fuzz boxes.
    The good news and bad news I think, is that there are many good vintage Arbiter type fuzz boxes to chose from these days.
    I would think considering Roger Mayers history with Jimi, his pedals should get you close also. ??
    The way I percieved it when I was looking, (and I was looking to cop Jimi also), was since there were many to chose from, I started looking at features and versatility.

    I like my Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz.
    I also like my blue Dallas Arbiter silicon face, and; for germanium sounds, the Euthymia Crucible GE.

    I notice that my Strats with stock, weaker pickups sound closer to Hendrix with my pedals and Marshall amps.
