The annual effector ranking. This time, we introduce the rankings for the top 5 fuzz products, which have been increasing in popularity among distortion effectors in recent years!
Let's go take a look!
You may have the impression that fuzz (more than overdrive and distortion) is for professionals because many people feel that it is difficult to create a good sound. But with this model, setting the sound and controls is straightforward. Moreover, the sound is cool. This model is one of the best choices if you want the popular Big Muff sound.
It not become too “boomy” and features distinct, clear high frequencies. It’s a rough distortion that responds well to fast riffs with a crunchy feeling. Although the price is low, the effector is a good model that belies the price.
Classic fuzz that you recognize at a glance for the unique encasing. When speaking about fuzz, many may imagine this sound in particular. However, the model reacts to the volume change of the guitar well, and boasts more sound variations than you expect. Just as an aside, I love the color of this model.
Even though it’s a Big Muff type, this has a Russian muff sound. It’s probably the closest model to distortion in this ranking. You can create sounds that are easy to play for both sound clarity and sustain.
In addition to general volume and gain, the two-band EQ and three-mode switch change the character incredibly. For the character of the sound, the models introduced so far may be easier to use, but there are some sounds that can only be output by the SF300. In addition to the price, it tickles the effect geek's heart, and I guess that’s why it might have become the TOP model.
Were there any fuzz effects that you want? In this fuzz ranking, it was difficult to comment because of the completely unexpected data. Fuzz is not really my main effect of choice, but I was surprised at the fact that some fuzz effects which were called classics until only a few years ago, were not ranked in the top 5. And I felt that the Muff system was strong.
However, I think that fuzz has the widest sound range among distortion types. The trendy fuzz sound changes with the times, but now it is the age of Muff. I'm looking forward to seeing the new systems that come out next.
