    need something for the small board. got a "creepyface" on the big board and really like it. the sunface, fuzz factory and screwdriver didn't work for me.

    If you're looking for a germanium fuzz face you it's hard to beat the AM Sunface NKT275. If you're looking for silicon the MXR 108 is great and easy to get a hold of.

    MJM makes some good stuff.

    Also, if you want silicon fuzz Deviltone makes a killer fuzzface in a small package.

    If you can find one, a Pro Analog Scary Face is amazing!

    MJM or Monsterpiece are found now and then around $100. and sound excellent.

    Check out the MXR Classic 108 fuzz, it's essentially the new Dunlop Hendrix Fuzz Face in a more "standard" enclosure.

    I'll second that emotion---wow. But they never come up for sale. Wonder why......
    Mine's got OC44's and is a firethrower. I'd love to find a Scary Face deluxe.

    IMO it doesn't get any better or any smaller than an AnalogMan Sunface.

    Not sure if it's Fuzz Face-like or not, but I have the Catalinbread V8 fuzz and really love it. And it's tiny too!

    For a really good silicon one go with SolidGoldFX - Formula 69! One of the best for sure and with the buffer knob you can do whatever you want with your sound!

    Have a look:

    MJM and KR are both great choices for small fuzzfaces.
