I finally decided to get a fuzz pedal and decided on the Fuzztration after reading reviews and watching demos.
I normally keep the clean channel on my amp with more bass and high end than the dirty channels. When I engage the Fuzztraion, in front of the clean channel, it is very fat sounding. I tried turning down the bass on it but it still is too much (for me). It gets rid of the bass but the low end is very undefined and still fat sounding. Maybe that is how fuzz pedals are supposed to sound?
The best way to use it for me is in front of my dirty channel but with the guitar volume down. This works out pretty good.
Are fuzz pedals supposed to be so fat and mushy in the low end? This pedal has that and then some.
This is my first fuzz and first octave up (not digital) pedal. I really like the octave feature of the pedal.
Do you have a Fuzztration? What use case works best for you?

Yeah, most of the ones I've played including the Velvet are fat and mushy. Best way to tame them, across all my guitar and amp combinations, is the volume control on the guitar. Cleans most of em right up. I'll have to try "a good FET boost or preamp set to unity gain" myself, because I don't love messing with my volume control for just certain specific pedals.
