    Pro Analog Scary Face(silicon version).

    It's over your bugget, but I have it compared with: Foxrox CC2 (Hybrid fuzz card), Euthymia Cruzible Fuzz, Wolftone Cybil, London Fuzz 2 (silicon). and ToneFactor Hellbilly(the fuzz side).

    I find the PA SF to be the thickest in the mid. Play higher up the register on my strat, the PASF has just more meat. So far, my fav for nice thick mid lead tone fuzz.

    The others might have more highs and lows but they all thin out when you go up the neck,compared with the PASF.

    YMMV, as usual.

    :cool:

    What sort of rig are you playing through, amp and guitar wise? That will have a huge impact on what is the right fuzz for what you're looking for.

    I've gone through a few nice fuzzes (London II, McFuzz reg. & Hot, 70 pedal, Sunface/dial, and a few others) but I think I like the Soulbender so far the best due to it's fattness & smoothness.

    Another worthy contender is the Keeley Fuzz Head...has a bit more overdrive flavor to it.

    I've really been digging my Foxx Tone Machine that was delivered last week.

    Well I'm playing my MIM Strat that I really like, with some Duncan (Vintage Staggered) pickups that I don't really like and am replacing, into my wah then into my Peavey Classic 50, which I'm getting some Celestion Vintage 30's for.

    My Euthymia Crucible Fuzz (Si), reviewed this month in Guitar Player, is pretty thick, fuzz-wise.

    The ICBM Fuzz is similarly able to generate a wall of fuzz.

    Check out the sound clips at my site:

    Yes, those pedal's both look like they would fit the bill.
    Where can I buy Fulltone to ship internationally?

    That looks awesome too, however the no fuzz knob factor is not appealing to me.
