Synthy Fuzz recommendations?

Recommended Posts

I'm after a synthy gated fuzz.

It's going to be used with active basses. Also, I'll be jamming it between a Markbass octaver and MXR Bass Envelope Filter, to milk the synthtasticness of it.

Thinking along the lines of the Mastotron, or Fat Fuzz Factory. I love the sound of the Team Awesome Fuzz Machine too ... you get my drift.

Which other fuzz pedals fall into that hemisphere? It's got to be active-friendly, mind 🤙🏻

What are your suggestions folks?

As you know,I've just sold my mastatron! And I'm kicking myself 😔 i do have a tech 21 red ripper which is worth a look if you can find one. I deliberated between the two and the red ripper is more versatile, but takes a lot more tweaking to get a great synth sound out of than the mastatron,when mixed with octave and filter.
3 leaf doom too or a Crowther prunes and custard,they are on the more expensive end though 😁

Malekko Diabolik gets my vote. I have a TAFM and love it, but never use the gate feature, it's not its strong point if you ask me.

Redwitch Zeus is perfect for this, as is the Mastotron but i always struggled to get the zvex to balance in a mix. Dan, i actually LOVE the gate on the TAFM and almost always use it, but its not a strong gate like on the Zeus and zvex

Chunk Systems Brown Dog does a nice synthy/gated sound.

Good luck finding one though...

Iron Ether Oxide is another good option too.

Double +1 for this! My favourite fuzz ever, though sadly discontinued. They do crop up in the US occasionally but usually for $$$.

I use an oxide for that really tight gate, in my experience it's the tightest out there.
I also use a Mastotron, not quite as tight as the IEO but a great gated fuzz.
I tend to use the two of them together a lot too, makes for a great saw tooth type sound.
