Wow, guys! So many different fuzz pedals. I had never heard of most of them that have been mentioned here, but where I live, fuzz pedals aren't too common.
I like fuzz that produces nasty, crazy, amp-fixin-to-blow chaos.

It makes me play fast, quick power chord riffs - then I start playing like spastic thrash metal solos. The brash treble just jumps right out. I like that it dictates what you play. It makes me bang my head. And it's a fucking purple UFO!
So a pre gain control could work nice. Cheers.

The Acetone is another I'd love to try.

Elka Dizzy Tone. I discovered it a couple of month ago and it quickly became one of my most favourite fuzzboxes. Massive, evil, with big bottom end. Anyways, I haven't seen one of them (or a clone) in a pedalboard before.

Fender Blender also; I'd really love if someone could make a modern take of if.

Ronsound are still doing V1 and V2 Blenders (I have a V1 and it's ace). Or do you mean something more than a clone?

Nah, I just grabbed those photos from his website. The Chimp Blender he built for innerflight and I don't know who the other one belongs to.

Ah, yes. The Fender Blender. That was the first distortion pedal of any kind I ever saw. It was when I was first starting to play guitar. I met this guy and he had one, along with a strat and some kind of fender amp. It's been so long ago that I can't remember exactly how it sounded, but I DO remember it had plenty of sustain.
