    i'm looking for a modern voiced fuzz that can be used with the following: Octron and Whammy. it needs to be AFTER those effects. silicon fuzz preferably, cause my FF is germanium (i think?).
    I was looking at the MI Audio GI fuzz, and its got a small footprint. any other recommendations? it'll be used for solos.
    anything i should look at?

    Addrock Hism Scism. The new Si based fuzz from Addrock. If it's as good as his Geranium Fuzz (Ge fuzz) I'll have to order two.

    BIG UPS FOR THE GI FUZZ!!!! Here's the deal...its extremely flexible. Everything that he says the knobs do- it actually does. It you'll be able to make any fuzz work with your other effects it'll be the GI Fuzz. You can shape, mids and highs, fuzz level, volume, and even the freaking impedance to match others efx, guitars, amps, etc.... I recommend starting with the GI Fuzz.

    Sybil from Retroman! Lots of very cool fuzz tones in one box. Si and Ge. You can run them independently or mix them. The Si side can drive the Ge side. Lots of options. I am still discovering cool sweet spots.

    haha yeh too right. i use his tube zone deluxe, which is tone shaping to the max. thats wat drew me to the GI, just dial in to match the other effects and my amp. mike makes great stuff imo. ill give it a shot. ill check out the other fuzz's mentioned. all can be run after octave effects??

    My vote is for the Frantone The Sweet. Great fuzz and endless sustain.

    I have tried many fuzzes and if I could only have 2 it would be the Baja Tech DA MOAF (for muff fuzz tones) and the Retroman SYBIL (for ge and si tones). Bar none.

    The Tonefactor Huckleberry is a great fuzz with an effective EQ. From what I understand, it's a ge/si hybrid with a Big Muff tonestack. Great high gain tones that are still articulate.

    Derek, since I know your taste :)...any idea if that Retroman can get close to a Soulbender tone? That ped has a fatness I like.

    Another vote for Sybil.. She's big-time stupid fun, and Joe Wolf's a comsummate pro- you get rock star treatment all the way w/the Retroman.

    But I wouldn't put it in the same ballpark w/Fuller's Tonebender clone.. That's my all-time favorite Fulltone pedal (#1597 on my board since '3/03!).

    Nice to have both:BEER!!

    Yeah, it really can't IMO. IT gets a LOT of other fuzz tones though.:RoCkIn

    Thanks...a little point-n-click yielded some additional info as well. The Sybil seems to be an all around multi-fuzz face, great idea.

    Now that sounds like an interesting critter. TF does some creative hybrids for sure. :)

    +2.

    I bought mine used about two years ago for $100. Since then I've gone through:
    (3) COT50s
    (1) Eternity
    (2) klons
    (1) Landgraff
    (2) TIMs
    (1) Addrock Ge Fuzz
    (2) Captain Coconut II
    (1) analog man sunface nkt

    All of the above are great, although two of them didn't work out for me. That said, I still have my McFuzz. It cheap (used), covers a lot of ground, is very dynamic and sounds great. Probably the only pedal where the thought of selling/trading it hasn't crossed my mind.
