    The parents want to get me a pedal of some kind for christmas. I dont really know what I want. Im into fuzz alot. I own a green russian bubble font muff, 3 black russian muffs, wren and cuff tall font russian, and pickle pie b, and an lm308 modded rat 2. I was looking into the fuzzrocious rat tail and the earthbound audio supercollider or catlinbread sft. Any other cool pedals i should look into?

    Do you have/would you like any reverb? I used to hate reverb until I go an Iron Ether Nimbus.

    Or modulation (Phasers sound great with dirt, especially an Infanem Faye Sing), Delay, Filter, Octaver, the list goes on.

    tried out some delays. I dont really care for reverb much. I have ran a marshall amp with reverb on it into my 6x10 once. It wasnt that cool, ill still look into the iron either nimbus though. If I got the malekko assmaster it would be the one with the expression pedal out and thats over my budget. The cut off is about 200. I have heard of the team awesome fuzz machine but havent heard clips.

    You have so many Muffs, I would pass on the Supercollider unless you are on the hunt for the "One". Limiting myself to boxes I've actually played through and with your budget in mind I'd suggest a Fuzzrocious Rat Tail, SS/BS TAFM, SS/BS Mini, or a Mountainking Heavy Machine. I think all of these are killer.

    I'd also say to branch out your collection generally, maybe some Brassmaster or Superfuzz based circuits or some original designs that are out there.

    I really do think the supercollider is the one... too bad they are out of stock at the moment.

    If you are running a passive bass and don't want to go to far away from fuzz and distortion you can try a Zvex box.

    I recommend the Boss RC-3 Loop Station pedal.
    Yeah, I read your post about fuzz and all that noise, but this loop station has helped me out in ways I can't even begin to explain.

    Super handy, has a lot of features, and tons of recordable memory.

    Do it man!

    Get the new version the older versions wouldn't let you use just one side of the pedal.
