FUZZ PEDALS DEMO - 16 Different Fuzz Pedals

I appreciate that this guy took the time to hook up all these relatively available Fuzz Pedals to let us hear them all side by side.  He doesn't change any of the controls while playing so you have to imagine there is some flexibility in the tones but it gives you a pretty good idea what they sound like.  Personally i really like the FuzzBrit, the maestro and the Guyatone - they are the most biting and destructive sounding (though I know that the ZVex can also get pretty decimated sounding if you tweak the knobs).   - JC

This one is a quick and dirty shootout of a bunch of fuzz boxes. It's not meant to be a definitive comparison. There's not any knob fiddling - just one riff with a quick on and off of each of the pedals (and a switch between modes for the two mode pedals). I find that most fuzzes have a basic character that stays pretty constant. It's colored by the knob settings, but that underlying character stays very much the same. So this video isn't meant to show off the whole range of each of the pedals. It's meant to give a sense of that basic character of a handful of different fuzz boxes all though the same amp, with same riff, same guitar and same mic setup. We hope some people find it interesting.

  1. Nice collection. I've never seen that Maestro Fuzz-Tone before but now I want it!. I've used the Fuzzface before and I like it but my Trex fuzz blows it out of the water....that's just my opinion though.


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
