There are enough awesome, hyper-accurate re-creations of classic fuzz pedals that it's tempting to say we've seen and heard it all. But while legendary fuzzes like the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff (and most of their many permutations) have been copied to an exacting degree many times over, variations of those circuits—both accidental and deliberate—still reveal sonic surprises that bear re-examination.
