It's a fact that even Iommi doesn't know exactly what effect was mixed with his studio solo in the song "Paranoid".
This is from an interview a few years back:
"The unusual distorted guitar solo was recorded straight and then processed during mixing "through a sound modulator of some sort," recalls Iommi, most likely one of the many assorted effects boxes producer, Rodger Bain collected at the time."
Although TI did use a fuzz face in live performances, which worked for him and the crowd, the album version of the song "Paranoid " was never duplicated live.
FYI (in case your interested), Iommi and bassist Geezer Butler used "LOUD" and Fat to create the "Sabbath Sound", for both live performances, and in the studio.
As Chris mentioned Iommi used Laney's, while Geezer used Ampeg amps.
