    What are some good fuzz pedals that are cheap to inexpensive?

    never used one but they look intriguing.

    I only have one, and it's a cheap Tom's line or similar. Works for me.

    Cheap fuzz I’ve yet to find one that I can bond with. Pedal pawn has a badass one I’ll probably pick up it’s $250 tho but cleans up amazingly with the volume knob

    How much do they go for nowadays ? $35/$40

    If you want one, I'll make you a deal you can't refuse. Used, but for maybe an hour altogether.

    I have a Modtone Buzz Boy and I don’t like it to much. But to be honest, I really don’t know how to use it and haven’t spent too much time messing with it. I got it awhile ago, plugged it in, couldn’t get a sound I liked, and just kind of forgot about it.

    I think any of the Donner style pedals off Amazon are worth a shot. They're small, pretty well build and give someone the option of exploring sounds without breaking the bank.

    I have this pedal. It stays on backorder at Sweetwater. I had to wait 6 weeks for mine. Adorama had them in stock in while back. I like the pedal on one of my boards... not the other one though. It interacts differently with different pedals. For $25 it's great pedal. It's a lot of fuzz.

    I had the Donner stylish fuzz but didn;t like it that much. Not enough fuzz in it. It sounded OK, but with a Rat and Big muff it didn't being anything new to the table.
    Favourite so far is the Ibanez 850. Very close to a muff but way nastier and better mids.
    Fuzz are a strange beast. what's gold to one person is garbage to the next. I've been wanting to try the behringer fuzz for a while. Maybe I'll actually pick one up one of these days....

    I can wholeheartedly recommend any of the Way Huge offerings (Swollen Pickle, Havalina, Red Llama, etc..). They're not $25 but they're built great and sound amazing.

    Yup, my swollen pickle sounds much better than my Little Big Muff. I was just enjoying the neck pickup on my Mustang with it through my Bugera V5.

    For cheap-ish fuzz, I'd say DOD Carcosa. Does everything from sweet overdrive to velcro/broken speaker. Love it and it won't leave any time soon, despite having other stuff to play with.

    I got a Lovepedal Mark 111 for $56
    It’s a Tonebender style Fuzz

    Every month or two Lovepedal will have a special sale, it’s good to look out for.

    The Tonebender style is cool, you get that early Jimmy Page “ Dazed And Confused” bite
