    I own a Boss ODB-3 overdrive pedal. It adds really good fuzz. I play funk/alternative and it sounds good. I havent played enough fuzz/OD/dist. pedals to tell you which one is best for funk, but mine works well.

    The EH Russian Big Muff is a deeply funky fuzz. It's also hilariously cheap and has hardly any knobs, which is nice.

    Frantone Lo-Tone for that really wooly early seventies fuzz in a true bypass box.
     
  9. Ezekiel 25:17 of the Bible, New International Version:

    "I will carry out great vengeance on them and punish them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I take vengeance on them."

    :D Now that's fitting!

    indeed it is. youll notice, if you look carfully the preamp engage switch is labelled "great vengeance" and the disto on/off "furious anger"

    if the clean can blend with the dirt, and if it's true bypass, then yes, I'm serious.
