    might i ask why sillicon??


    That's a lot of range for single fuzz to cover, but it sounds like you might want a 3-knob tonebender. I've owned Si Fuzzfaces, a big muff and a fulltone soulbender. To me the soul bender was exactly half way between the BMP and fuzzface on the tone spectrum, and could cover for both in a jam.

    Isn't the Barber Trifecta aimed at this niche?

    MJM London Fuzz 2...you can get it customized in a smaller mxr size enclosure with a bias knob that will allow you to get all the sounds you're looking for. Listen to the clips at mjmguitarfx.com

    I cannot say enough about the Barber Trifecta! I am in Fuzz love :YinYang. I have a Big Muff that doesn't get played anymore. The Trifecta has a push pull on the tone knob that flattens the eq to more approximate a Fuzz Face.

    I would be really hard if not impossible to cover both tones. I would say the Trifecta covers 99% of the BM tone(s) up to 85% of the Fuzz Face tone and EVERYTHING in-between. I am really digging this pedal; and I'm not really a pedal guy. It's also wah friendly on the bridge pup. And... SC & HB friendly as well.

    Not sure if the Homebrew UFO is silicon, but I think it's supposed to do a FF to a Muff with the flick of a switch ("vintage" and "modern"). Also has an octave up. Never tried one myself, though I've been curious for a very long time.

    UFO can't do Muff.
