Over to you...
Can you recommend something?
In terms of unique, do you mean original circuit or just that it sounds 'different' in one or more ways than other effects?
You're going to have to be more detailed than that
plenty out there but most make me wish they had a blend. Like the Superfuzz, or the FuzzFace. Most unique fuzz that doesn't really have a clean blend is probably the Prunes & Custard, though. That has a 'mix' knob but it's not for mixing in clean, it's for mixing the OD circuit (to the left) with the waveshaper (to the right).
Good question-Thank you for prompting a clarification!
I mean both.
No clone and a sound that is unique to the given pedal( how realistic this is, given how many fuzz pedals are out there...well...)
Prunes & Custard, Malekko Diabolik, EQD Erupter, DOD Carcosa.
Diabolik is great but it has a blend!
Having a dry blend knob doesn't mean that you must use it.
Carcosa or ssbs Mini. Carcosa for more fuzzy fuzz Mini for overdrive with bias adjustment. Carcosa gets low bias sputtery too. Joyo Orange Juice would be my next choice. Prunes & Custard (mine at least) Does have a blend, I used it mostly clean, about 30/70 with a tiny bit of filter most of the time, the drive is applied to the filter along with your signal making it more or less tripped. Most people use it for a very present synthy sweep, I tried to avoid that to make a woody swell sound responsive to my attack.
I'll recommend using TB's search function, it's okay, or search using Google:

Acoustic 360 FUZZ clone
I agree, and this one sounds better with out the clean. I use it either way, as a clean boost with no fuzz or vise versa
Fuzzrocious BDPG either version offers a unique bass oriented fuzz with a tone stack that offers a broad range of tones, V2 adds an additional gain stage at the end making it far more versatile. Great for driving bass lines or for a cutting solo tone.
Moody Sounds Hjart Muller Lo|Fat is a broad range bass overdrive that is very usable from low gain to very saturated, Klang is a fairly unusual tone stack that tilts in a very usable way. This pedal has been on my small board for it's versatility, being able to tweak the knobs is a nice feature.
DOD Boneshaker is a really great sounding drive pedal with a broad range and the three band semi parametric EQ allows for some extreme tones.
EarthQuaker Erupter & IdiotBox Cool Buzz.
Both simple to dial in, with no unusable bad settings. Both look great too!
Now THAT one sounds cool. I'd order one if it didn't have that über intense nuclear solar retina blistering blue LED.
Fuzzrocious Blast Furnace or a cranked EBS MetalDrive?
Blue is cool and mine is not blinding at all.
I've got a Fuzzhugger Doom Bloom- To my knowledge it's not a clone of anything. Fairly unique, gated fuzz tones- Although sometimes I feel it could do with a clean blend.
IdiotBox Blasteroid, discontinued but Prymaxe still has some: Idiotbox Blasteroid Fuzz. I have one and I love it. Thick and can be synthy. The smash knob adds a weird resonance that is subby at lower settings and gets more nasal and starts gating at higher settings.
IdiotBox Lazer Fuzz, weird filtered square wave fuzz. It has a knob and a switch with internal volume trimmer. Most of the settings work great without a blend. The upper switch position settings probably work better with one(I keep my Lazer Fuzz in a loop of my LS-2 to better control the volume so I sometimes use it as a blend but mostly not). You can get some really good octave up fuzz sounds and of course, lazer noises.
Seems weird to specify one without a blend. If you don't want a blended sound, you can just put it to full mix. Otherwise, you're just limiting yourself needlessly.
