    Maybe I'll just put era's

    60's
    70's
    80's
    90's

    Start naming companies too,

    EQD - do they do any of these

    A bit vague but hope it gets going......

    There are very few fuzzes that don't do classic sounds. Most of them do their own spin on well-known fuzzes like the Fuzz Face, Big Muff, Tonebender and others. Quite often, they'll attempt to fix issues with classic pedals, such as adding a mid shift knob to a Big Muff-style pedal.

    Other boutique makers will do their versions of more obscure pedals, like the Ampeg Scrambler.

    Here are the ones I can think of, off-hand:

    Germanium Fuzz Face:
    - Dunlop Mini Fuzz Face Red
    - EQD Dream Crusher
    - Fulltone '69

    Silicon Fuzz Face:
    - MXR Classic 108
    - SUF Hellephant
    - Fulltone '70
    - EQD Dirt Transmitter

    I don't know that many Big Muff variants, but there are a hell of a lot, from the Ram's Head imitators to the Sovtek variants. You'll have to ask one of the BM experts here (yeah, the jokes just write themselves, don't they?).

    I'm not a fuzz expert. I can only comment on what I know or own.

    Analog man Sun Face = Fuzz Face (and that much better)
    Analog man Sun Bender = Tone Bender 1.5
    EQD Hoof = Muff like circuit
    EQD Tone Reaper = Tone Bender like circuit (hybrid Silicon/Germanium)
    Walrus Audio = Fuzz Face like circuit with quite a few mods

    What about the eras these pedals are trying to cover, are you able to include that please?

    most of what's been mentioned are versions of 60s fuzzes. the big muff is more of a 70s pedal. med 60s to early 70s is pretty much the golden age of fuzz. thee really isn't an 80s or 90s era fuzz to speak of
