    I can't really describe what I'm looking for any better than the title says, but I'm looking to replace my muff with a slightly more rugged and pedalboard appropriate clone. I'm currently using a ram's head modded black russian w/ a mids knob that I like, but it gets a little overly compressed in the highs at times IMO. I'm looking for suggestions of a muff-y type fuzz that has a more open and full freq feel to it

    For starters, I've already looked at and am interested in:
    Several Civil War clones (ARC Effects, Fuzzrocious, SUF, etc)
    Fuzzrocious Heliotropic (look up the premier guitar review for the tone I'm describing)
    S&S Bluebeard
    Supa/Jumbo Tonebender
    and I know it doesn't get much talk here, but I used to use a DBA Fuzz War that I also loved the tone of

    You'd want to look at a muff-style fuzz that has an option or mod for "tone bypass."
