    So here's my dilemma- I own a Zvex Woolly Mammoth (mostly because of Arctic Monkeys). It is my only fuzz and I'm not in love with it. Due to financial constraints I can only afford one fuzz right now. Should I sell it for the new Dwarfcraft Baby Thunder? I've always wanted one
     
  2. The Baby Thunder/Thundaa is a pretty special pedal, but it is quite different from the Wooly Mammoth. I suggest giving some careful consideration to what sort of fuzz tone/s you want given the fact you can only have one pedal before making a move. :)

    Yes.

    Then build this.

  7. You can easily get a mammoth clone for ~$50-60 if not less. The clones sound exactly the same, nothing special in that circuit.

    Truth. As it so happens I've got a baby thundaa and a wooly mammoth clone I'm looking to move at some point, pm me if you like

  9. What do you need to build that other than a soldering iron?

    Nothing, I think, if you get an enclosure with it.
    Not sure though.
    I used to have this and really liked it.

    If you're willing to build a pedal, keep the mammoth and build the baby thunder. it's just a modded muff clone with a tone bypass, a diode switch and an input LF control.
    So, that : Big Muff Pi
