    Had both.. Enjoyed the fuzz factory more. Different beasts entirely. There's just so much available in a fuzz factory. The teaser stallion distortion was run-of-the-mill to my ear while the fuzz factory had all kinds of unique tones in it. I sold the fuzz factory as I was after a real vintage germanium tone. The teaser stallion got returned a week or two after purchase.

    Oh.. and I am completely in love with my analogman sunlion. Goodluck!

    +1 for the Fuzz Factory.... :warning IF you spend the proper amount of time with it's learning curve. It's not hard to use, just takes some patience.

    Cool, that's what I figured...I love the sounds that Matt Bellamy of the Muse and Daniel Johns of Silverchair get with the FF.

    It is really hard to give your comments any merit with your terrible language skills... that and the fuzz factory does not have a chip in it.

    Those 2 pedals are completely different. I own both, and I use the Catalinbread more, as it is a bit more standard. Great for Rythym, and the Fuzz Factory is great for Lead. Together, a winning combination. The FF is has more options, but is sharper in tone.

    I have both. No comparison. Not even apples and oranges; more like apples and volleyballs.

    Well, both of them can create oscillation feedback sounds that the primary note decays into. But the Teaser is definitely more easily controlled/tuned in oscillation mode. And, as everyone is saying, the basic sounds of the two pedals are quite different. If you're going to use the oscillation feature a lot, I'd go for the Teaser. If you just want it once in a while, the Fuzz Factory will satisfy.
