We just LOVE fuzz pedals, don’t we? They are pretty much the most “classic” of all guitar fx pedals: one of the earliest types of effect, used on several seminal recordings from the Sixties, and still popular today. But one question remains: WHAT are the best fuzz pedals, ever? The history of fuzz is suitably… fuzzy! […]

These choices will be from my point of view and experience, and as I cannot with expertise speak about effects that I cannot use in the type of music I play (which is blues, old school country, classic rock and 50’s and 60’s R&B). I again welcome all suggestions for your favorite effects.
