Fuzzes that sound like the Nojs side of the Okto Nojs?

    ...but with more control over the gating. I have a Mastotron, which sound huge and offers a lot of gating control (bias and input impedance), but it's tonally a lot drier than the Okto Nojs. The Emma OTOH has a really 'fruity' harmonic quality that I've not managed to get anywhere else, but no gate control at all such that it's not much use as a regular fuzz and could also be tighter for synth use. Does such a thing exist?

    I have a Red Witch Zeus that has a pretty organic Fuzz and pretty Variable gate(sputter) control. It also has a very OC-2 like octave .

    But the Zeus is more straightforward a fuzz. The Okto Nojs fuzz has some cool "burp" to it that pushes it into almost prunes&custard territory.

    @radiophonic Maybe try a Tech21 Red Ripper or a Brassmaster style fuzz? The Ripper can do a decent Prunes impression, BUT the RIP knob can give it as much or as little of that quality as you may want - it's not a straight more-is-more though - more like a bell curve, you'd have to futz with it. But they're cheap and sound great!
