    Hey everyone, I'm in the market for a fuzz. Looking to spend around $200, new or used does not matter. I only want one fuzz on my board, as I won't use it a huge amount.

    I will be using it for stuff like The Black Keys and Tame Impala, also a little Hendrix and Pink Floyd.

    What are your recommendations as far as fuzz pedals that can achieve these variety sounds? I was thinking the Peppermint Fuzz will probably do the trick, what do you think?

    Keeler Kick is outrageously versatile.

    Germ Fuzzface. Especially the Hendrix, Tame Impala.

    I like the MJM London Fuzz.

    Not a huge fan of the videos I've heard of the Keeler, I do like the versatility of the London Fuzz though. What else can people suggest me to have a look at? SO far my short list includes the Peppermint Fuzz, Musket, London Fuzz, Lunar Module, Astro Tone, Hoof, SUF Ram's Head.

    Lunar Module Deluxe for versatility...but the Hoof is good too.

    I don't own one, but I've heard good things about the Barber Trifecta.

    Basic Audio Scarab Deluxe is supposed to be pretty versatile too. Sound clips all sound awesome. Mine is in the mail :)

    Musket. Very good sounding, and very versatile.

    Lovepedal BBB or Earthquaker Hoof would be my choice.

    or if you want sort of a different tone than those, one of the tonebender varieties.

    I've been really digging the SolidGoldFX Formula69 lately. Great fuzzface, super versatile and you'd still have some money left over from your budget.

    ...If you can get a Lunar Module Deluxe for under $200, please send me the link because I'll take two!
