    So I'm no expert on fuzzes, but I've narrowed it down to three choices.
    1. Darkglass Duality
    2. 3leaf audio you're doom
    3. Boss FZ-5

    I also like the fuzz tone you can get from the verrellen meatsmoke preamp, but $700 seems a bit excessive to me. I play a lot of stoner/doom metal and a lot of psychedelic rock. Any suggestions?

    I can't believe #3 is even in the same post as #1 and #2. One of these things does not belong :)

    Well idk, the dude from Electric Wizard use one and I really dig his tone, so I figured it was worth throwing out there.

    I'm a Fellow Stoner/Doom/Sludge/Psychedelic player...

    For me.....none of the pedals you mentioned would be a contender over these posted below

    and For my money these pedals are the best and hard to beat for our type of Music

    First and IMHO the Best Bass Fuzz ever created!!

    Mountainking Electronics MEGALITH

    This thing is Incredible...just wish it wasn't so big!!!

    hey and If it's Good enough for Al Cisneros and Wino !!!
