Personally I’d keep one of each....Fuzz Face, MKII and Big Muff. These cover virtually any fuzz flavour you’ll ever need. The rest is just gravy and a lot of variations of the same circuit.
This is reasonable, but what about MKI and MK1.5? :badteeth:
The MK1.5 is pretty similar to a Fuzz Face, I think a1.5 suits humbuckers better than a FF, so maybe you want to keep a ge 1.5 and a silicon FF.
And of course a MKI is it’s own crazy beast, you need that crazy box of crackle and sizzle in your arsenal....and now your back to square one lol. So the answer is, keep them all :badteeth: :freakout: :party:

Life is short. Only sell things when you have to.

I only have 1 fuzz because I am a loser bum. :smashed:

How many guitars do you have? I ask because a fuzz may sound good through onr but phenomenal through the other. For instance the Stonefly Grizzly. Through a 77 les paul.pro deluxe with p90's and a 64 Epiphone Riviera with factory mini humbuckers it sounds great but with an SQ Squirer with bareknucke Rory Gallagher's it is phenomenal. My advice would be to delegate 3 fuzz's to each guitar with no cross overs. Then sell the remainder. You may well end up with 5 fuzz's that sound awesome with a strat but if you have a Gibson the at least you have 3 good ones that work well. Alternatively sell all.your guitars and buy a pre 65 mustang or a 70's competition mustang, or a 60's tele or.70's tele deluxe and you're going to be sorted.

I don't use anymore fuzzes nowadays (almost), that's the sad story.
I feel sentimental about some, I feel jealous abouy others, I don't care about others.
Between the ones I feel jealous, I'd like to reduce them though.

Yeah I use fuzz sparingly these days. For an occasional song or jam.
Always had a soft spot for them though.
That’s why I need a few in my life
