    _alimentation by sector (9 volt power supply) or battery INCLUDED IN THE ORIGINAL PEDAL: If you wish to power the pedal with an adapter, be sure to remove the battery (not hatch, unscrew the back plate in order to access).
    For those who want to preserve the battery, can be better unplug the jack Input after playing to avoid discharging the latter.

    USE

    The parameters are not many but enough to ensure a fairly wide range of sounds, whether you are serious amateur, sound somewhat saturated, or super gritty fuzz. that side is direct access and no neural triturage.

    SOUND QUALITY

    So there, that's exactly what I wanted: a highly distinctive grain and granular wish. It is possible to stay very reasonable limiting the level of sustain. The two knobs "tone" and "sustain" enough between them to provide a wide range of sounds. After that, it seems to me difficult to earn a sustain beyond 12 and the switch to bass boost ... unless you want to shave the concert hall map ...
    Note that this pedal quite compresses the sound, the lack of attack can be felt, especially with a high sustain.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    We recover the identity of the Electro Harmonix Big Muff, and this version "bass big muff" not only gives extra bass compared to the simple model "Big Muff" She seems much more suited to the bandwidth bass, the same settings on the traditional big muff give a more garish, less "low" (I mean instrument).
    Try it, it will not suit everyone, it's the fuzz, fuzz and in all its splendor. Personally, I at-DO-RE!

    Saturation while maintaining low

    Electro-Harmonix Bass Big Muff PiPublished on 09/24/14 at 08:18
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    The big, fat saturation or a violent attack is what you will have with this little gem. In addition you will keep the bass sound of your instrument, it has never been the case with my previous pedals. No lamp but a good grain anyway.

    UTILIZATION

    Fiddling with the buttons we discover several personalities to this pedal, you may as well use it to play for the Muse play the Grind-Core. The output without effect-it can be added or not with other pedals. The bass boost is excellent, being paid very low I never take it off to keep the deep bass frequencies.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I used to have a very low distortion sound, the pedal sustain longer while giving a fat grain to the whole.

    Analog fuzz pedal for bass with volume, tone and sustain, as well as three modes: dry (add the original sound signal) normal, and bass (useful when used with the bass)

    UTILIZATION

    Easy! I do not remember reading the manual, but this is not necessary, turn a few knobs to find the sound we like.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I bought this pedal for use on guitar, and I think it is even more effective with the latter; although on a low it does its job. The sound is very bold, very fuzz (logical) starting from a clean channel with the tube fully sustain and tone a little below noon we get a very big sound to good fat stoner, and putting on a "bottom amp" type overdrive, it screams, it's magic,......

The sound is very bold, very fuzz (logical) starting from a clean channel with the tube fully sustain and tone a little below noon we get a very big sound to good fat stoner, and putting on a "bottom amp" type overdrive, it screams, it's magic, playing with the volume knob on the guitar something interesting and more manageable is obtained.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a little less than two years, and it's really a good deal, for € 60 you will not find anything comparable, I love the particular sound it offers, the ideal is of course the try before you buy, but be careful, she responded differently to different amps.

    I do not think the sale any time soon.

    a very thick fuzz, which can boost the bass level, thanks to the switch, or mix the dry (no effect) and fuzz.

    UTILIZATION

    super simple to use, the manual am useless ... the dry mode gives clear sound and fuzz, the volume will be the proportion of the fuzz (like the bass sound of the verse "salute your solution" storytellers). Otherwise the gain is quite linear (there better) and the tone is fairly broad.
    the volume? uh ... it manages the volume ...

    really the problem with this pedal is what can give the worst and the best, it depends on your gear ... with a big Ampeg svt sounds to death with a small amp ... it sounds like a series of pet. it really is the "problem" with this pedal, if the amp has no character, the pedal either.
    It is also quite nice on guitar, it makes a big muff and heavier. tested on a vox with a strat, I dare say that the sound is good!

    OVERALL OPINION

    it is worth its price, well, watch the gear you goshawks!
    I would do this choice can not be ... a Malekko b: ass master can be.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Question fuzz it is served, the sound is big, slimy and dirty desire, without losing nuanced if the effect is set to light. Pushed into a corner, the subtleties of the game are clearly blurred, of course. But no matter, the aim being to give volume and body, and on that point the contract is completed. The effect is effective, the sound is rich, the countless settings that you will definitely find your own.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over a year, but sparingly, my musical style not being wild rock. Nevertheless the effect is interesting on some passges that require sending heavy. Pedal exudes strength with its robust metal housing (the trademark at EHX) the proposed price to a really tight all.
    This pedal has become over time a standard kind of quickly finding its place in the bass pedalboard.

    Nothing to add

    UTILIZATION

    Easy to use. Is there a manual? Oh.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Used with a bass. It's effective, it's the least we can say! I do not use it alone. In fact, I put it just before Bass Balls (without its own overdrive): I think the effect is better than the Bass Balls alone because its canned serious distortion unlike the Bass Balls.
    If any one is still an effect a bit too much for me: I prefer overdrive.

    The basic fuzz

    Electro-Harmonix Bass Big Muff PiPublished on 11/04/12 at 11:48
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Fuzz analog, true bypass, on 9V. Classic.
    Ditto for the controls: it sets the tone with the color, adjusting the distortion with sustain, it adjusts the overall volume of the pedal with the volume.
    Variation compared to the BM standard switch. I come later.

    UTILIZATION

    This is very, very simple. If you want the fuzz, it's good, we find.
    It is robust, but it is mass produced so it's not the best insulation in the world when there is noise on the line (electrical noise). But hey, if you intend to engage a priori is that you are playing, so not too much risk to hear what discomfort.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Used on low, of course ...
    The bass boost is interesting in register 'big sound blurring, which can be nice in the notes very serious (5 strings for example), in particular electro, I found. By lack of aggressiveness against it for true rock sound. At the same time it's fuzz, no distortion!
    That said, incorporating mode 'dry' + a little overdrive before, it's not yucky ... Finally though, but in a good way. Very good for those passages where the bass is a bit lonely and needs more snoring compensate for the lack of guitars.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is not the fuzz that is most in originality, but it does its job. I blame him especially his side a little 'flat' compared to other fuzzs more typical and more dynamic, but it is surely what made it successful for those who just want to taste it without going much further.
    In short: not the best, but the one you need if you want to dip a toe into the world of fuzz without breaking the bank ...
    I'm pretty fast for a separate B: assmaster of Malekko for the less typical ... I then went back with a Eau Claire Thunder in the same genre as the BM but also nag with more bite. But in my humble opinion, the top remains of Pharaoh Black Arts in Toneworks. Much more versatile for my taste.
    After that, it is a question of budget!

    It's simple, it's good, it's solid (I think if you threw it at the top of the Eiffel Tower it pèterais not), it's big sound.
    A pedal as it changes life: 3 knob (volume, tone, sustain), a 3-position switch (Bass Boost, Normal, Dry) input, 2 outputs (one dry out).

    UTILIZATION

    As config 'there's no simple 3 knob as previously stated.
    Manual?! It is useless without laughter nothing to lose in three buttons.
    Switch with a little hard for my taste but not annoying when playing with shoes.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is what I needed (I even think that's what SHOULD to all amateur big bass sound).

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is what I needed (I even think that's what SHOULD to all amateur big bass sound).
    Let me explain: I was looking for something very special, a distortion that is not too rough (after distortion is a distortion) distortion especially one who does not drool too much is pleasant to the ear, there may be just a small grain of the bass sound relatively lowering the knobs and putting the Dry (command used to mix the two sound: its clear sound + drive).
    With a Precision Bass could miss a little heavy at certain time and style I play (punk rock / grunge) is perfect! The only problem is that this little beast feedback quickly when you do not play, just disable it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is only a few months, I am completely satisfied, it adds another dimension to our songs (this was THE thing that was missing). The sound is great if that is what we are looking for (ie to try before anyway), it's a shame that feedback quickly but little use to our advantage later, something else also damage a screwdriver is required to change a battery, you must remove the effect backplate.
    For the price / quality ratio I think only the fact enough to evoke the brand (cheap and good quality). To make a choice, to repeat, to repeat, repeat and repeat to ...........

    Not very complicated it is a raw apple Fuzz!

    UTILIZATION

    It's simple enough to use a knob volume, one tone and one knob Potar gain (fuzz drive). input and two output intrument Dry output and an output effect. A 3-position button.

    SOUND QUALITY

    A lot of options available to you friend bassist. You rule the sound that you like in normal mode (inter position norm.) And you have a big muff PI standard, you put on the knob Dry and you can mix the clear sound of your bass with the sound of the fuzz, and position bass boost I believe that there is no need for explanations.
