    What are some recomendations for a good inexpensive fuzz pedal? Good bang for the buck..and sounds good with single coils. Anyone?

    I've gotten lots of usable tones out of my Dano French Toast with my strat. The circuit is very similar to a Foxx Tone Machine. For $20 you can't go wrong.

    I don't know if I just lucked out or what, but I picked up a used Ultraviolet last week for a hundred Canadian.

    This is an unreal sick fuzzbox- anything from smooth sustain to scratchy sputters & all points between.

    I posted about it, too. But no one else seems to be using one...

    How about a used Fulltone 70. You can still find them pretty cheap from time to time.

    Oh yeah! With all the cool stuff coming out these days, I forgot about Fulltone.

    To my old ears, fuzzes are the things that Mike Fuller makes best; the 70s (both purple & blue), the 69 and the SoulBender are all great pedals. I got my Soulbender used for very cheap and it's a classic sounding fuzz..

    Could get a Tonefactor Hellbilly for $129 and have the tonal flexibility of a fuzzface, rangemaster and overdrive all in the same pedal.

    P.S www.tonefactor.com and it is under the Unkle's Custom Shop section.

    How about a Seymour Duncan Tweak Fuzz?

    DODFX52 Classic Fuzz ... don't be fooled by it typical ~$30(US) pricetag ... this pedal offers the perfect blend between the tonalities of a ProCo Rat and an Electro-Harmonix Big Muff.

    There are some clips of this pedal and the Danelectro French Toast on http://www.uncledig.com

    The nick greer black fuzz is about the best fuzz I have played at any price. But I guess it depends on what kind of fuzz you want.

    Tonebender?

    Fuzz Face?

    Mig Muff?

    If you're looking for a Fuzz Face type, I've had great results with the Monsterpiece silicon fuzz I bought new off ebay for $75. Quality components and construction, great sound, and the guy stands behind his product.
