Hey, does anyone have opinions on the following pedals:

DOD? Hyperfuzz (has parametric eq over fuzz)
DOD Classic Fuzz
...Paia quadrafuzz

I am into overdriving drum machines and digital synths (CZ & VZ Casios)
and have use the Classic Fuzz with some nice qualities, but not as much
range of controls as I'd like.

I am looking for an overdrive that retains some warmth and possibly a
sweepable eq to boost/lower..
