    Before I grabbed a Ron Swanson super fuzz I wanted one of these bad. You know what, I still want one, even if the tone knob is more versatile than the switch.

    I had this same grand delusion. It hasn't happened yet. Fuzz requires mastery I do not possess.

    If it’s that good, can you make one for me while you’re at it? :) :cool:

    If money was no object I'd probably pick up a Spaceman Sputnik II, but I don't know if any one single fuzz is really the best. They're all just different sounds that I want to make with my guitar at different times. I currently have about 10 fuzzes and I love them all dearly for different reasons.

    I hope I never find just one fuzz to rule them all because part of the real love of fuzz is discovering new pedals that make new sounds and imagining what it's like to play through them and then one day acquiring them for your own.

    The OP wrote the singular, “fuzz”; no cheating!

    I have all the modern equivalents I could ever want...Pigdog/Jerms etc., but wouldn’t mind an OG MKI Bender someday :)

    Awesome question. I’ll go:

    1) Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face
    2) PTD Rotobone
    3) D*A*M* MKII
    4) Spaceman Gemini III
    5) Mosrite Fuzzrite

    Say I won the lottery and If money were no object, then I’d start collecting every D.A.M pedal I could get my hands on. And that would take a fortune!

    So there you go. D.A.M are probably the best Tonebenders ever made. But...that’s just one type/ specialty.

    And then, as a very rich person, I’d start collecting all the other fuzz’s I want. Probably every model my favourite builders make, just because.

    Then I’d spend a lot of money on Amps, women and guitars.

    The rest I’d just waste.

    I love the Roland Double Beat and Bee Gee, still miss the big green Sovtek Big Muff Pi I foolishly sold but if it was a case of someone fairy-godmotheringly saying "Pick any fuzz and I'll pay for it" I would just have to see if I could sneak either the EMS Synthi Hi-Fli or Ludwig Phase II through the wishing door because they do have fuzz circuits built in to them.

    The Pedalworx McFuzz is pretty sweet as are the old Diaz Square Faces. The Scott McKeon is pretty dang Sweet too.

    Definitely the Black Arts Toneworks Pharaoh; it is an integral piece of my board as it functions as both a standalone fuzz and a solo boost.

    I love my 2005 white dot NKT275 SunFace, especially stacked into a Marshall BB1
