    I'd like to get a fuzz pedal to a get a nice thick fuzz sound with sustain that sounds good with humbuckers. I have a Russion Big Muff that is okay but noisy and a Frantone The Sweet...which I like with single coils but not so much with humbuckers. It also has for me, a limited sweet spot.

    Any suggestions? How are the Fulltone models?

    Thanks, joe

    The Fulltone '70 was my favorite fuzz for use with buckers. You could also get on the list for the 200lbs of Tone from www.lovepedal.com I haven't run buckers through mine yet but it sustains for days and is very versatile.

    My Little Big Muff sounds huge with my ES-135. It sounds a whole lot like my retired 70's NYC BM.

    Fulltone Soulbender was the fattest, 'singing-est' fuzz I've used....

    How bout the J everman Ultra Drive. I own that pedal and it is designed to do the Wall of Sound and sustain for days. It really captures what your looking for and I use it with an SG and really Hot buckers.

    Its like a Muff on roids but with a switchable tone stack to control the scoop and bass response ..

    I like the Top Fuel for this. It really depends on the amp used though.
