    I was gonna say Danelectro Eisenhower but then I checked reverb and they are over $200. Give it a year.

    huh?

    A simple search shows a bunch of Eisenhowers for just under 150, both on Reverb and in stores.

    Ah.... just two posts.
    Perhaps the poster's newness in the forum excuses them?

    I hear the fulltone catalyst is pretty under appreciated and isnt finnicky like fuzz faces are.

    How much is the Arctic White going for these days? I live mine but don't remember how much I paid for it.

    When I think creamy fuzz, that is usually toward the Muff category. Hard to go wrong with an EHX one, but I might say the Green Russian would be preferable. Get Prymaxe to give you 25% off and you're looking at under $70.

    Otherwise, plenty of used stuff to dig through on Reverb.

    >smooth and creamy
    >fuzz

    seriously though, can someone send me a clip of what a "smooth and creamy fuzz" is supposed to sound like?

    I’m wondering the same thing. I suppose a muff might be smoother and creamier than other fuzzes. But it isn’t smooth or creamy to my ears.

    Velvet Fuzz's can be had for about $100 and some change. The "Big" fuzz setting is as creamy as butter frosting.

    Biyang Fuzz Star is an excellent Muff for under $50 new.

    i always took it to mean the smoother germanium style vs more harsh silicon ones. I take your point however, as IIRC fuzz is more of a distortion than it is overdrive.
