only one fuzz/dirt pedal to cover as many sounds as possible, what would you get?

    For me it would have to be a fuzzface with good guitar volume knob cleanup. You'll have all of your overdrive tones in that volume knob range and fuzz at the top. This is usually how I run my board actually... one fuzz for all of my dirt, with the exception of an Octron to take it further over the top once in a while.

    Skreddy Lunar Module Deluxe. Period. So many sounds to be had with that pedal.

    it'd either be a solid ge fuzz-face or a Basic Audio scarab deluxe. the SD has OD, distortion, sputter fuzz, wall of fuzz, smooth fuzz, spitty fuzz, and more.

    got everyone beat...Dr. Scientist The Elements...above mentioned pedals are great, but honestly, The Elements cops tone boosts, low, mid, hi overdrive, distortion, fuzz, muff, death metal...I have real trouble finding unusable tones and still feel like I haven't discovered all it can do...10 knobs/toggles and an expression pedal input...it just does the most...servicing notice and I have sold at least 8 pedals that The Elements can own...

    My two votes have already been mentioned: scarab deluxe and lunar module deluxe. Going into a dirty amp, I'd lean toward the Scarab. Into a clean amp, I'd choose the LM.

    This was my thought, or the Empress Multidrive. I dont own either, but based on the specs and demos I think they can both cover a lot of ground.

    Basic Audio Scarab Deluxe is a cool fuzz. I really like my '71 BC108 Fuzz Face as well, cleans up really well and has a wide range of sounds.

    I concur with the Lunar Module Deluxe. Like, how can it be legal to be THAT versatile??
