Andy from StompBoxSonic.com (which is a great site by the way – you should definitely check it out!) took on the daunting task of quickly comparing a bunch of fuzz pedals. He doesn’t do any adjusting, just plays a simple riff through each of the pedals to give you an idea of what they’re all about. He also used the same guitar, mics and amp throughout the process, to eliminate some variables. It’s pretty cool hearing the different characteristics. Some are bright, some are dark, some are nasely, etc. There is quite an assortment of fuzzes in there. From common fuzz to some pretty obscure boxes. Fun stuff.
Here are the fuzz pedals shown in the video:
Any fuzzes you wish were included? Personally, I would have liked to have seen the Fulltone ’69 in there.
