    Hey guys,

    I have been loving my fuzz pedals lately, just cant get enough of them. So much so that I would like to pick up another one or two. I currently have a AM Sunlion, Retroman Sybil, monkey fuzz 3 (silicon), MJM Brit Bender. I love Marc Ford's fuzz tone's, but also Jeff Beck, D. Gilmore, etc.

    I would really like to get another fuzz and maybe a fuzz/ octave. Was thinking of a Foxx Tone machine as the fuzz/ octave but not really sure what else would be fun to try. I'd love ideas and if anyone is selling anything they think I may be interested in shoot me a pm.

    I will be using the fuzz's in a classic/ southern/ jam rock band, playing a les paul or a strat through a Roccaforte 18 or Matchless lightning clone.

    Thanks in advance for suggestions.

    Well you've got the Fuzzface and Tonebender angles covered, you're missing a Muff type (unless the monkey fuzz is a Muff?)...I highly recommend the MJM Foxy Fuzz, great pedal

    The monkey fuzz is more of a silicon fuzz face type thing than muff I believe.

    If you want to try something different, but incredibly awesome and unique, pick up a Lovepedal Karl

    Aquadog, can you give me a description of the Karl? What do you like about it.

    Check out the Lady Stardust from Phoenix Custom Electronics. It's a germanium based fuzz but it has a lot of versatility to it and it can get pretty nasty if you want it to. Alex makes great pedals and he's great to deal with.

    Peace

    I did a search on the Karl here on TGP and listed to some clips. WOW! That sounds really cool. Looks like a fun pedal to have. Thanks for the suggestions.
