I bought this at L&M music in Chattanooga, TN. I paid about 55 dollars (American currency). I bought it because I already have a big muff and wanted to see if I could make my sound even fuzzier.
When you switch it from single to double mode, it sounds really cool. It's a bit crunchier sounding than a regular big muff. It's relatively easy to use (only two knobs and one switch to switch from single to double), as with all EHX fx, it's very sturdy, you could jump on it and it wouldn't be damaged. All in all it's a pretty good pedal.
Single mode kind of sucks. I guess it's supposed to just be like a big muff, but you can't adjust the sustain or tone, so it sounds kind of crappy. Switch it over to double mode and you have a cool pedal, though!
Oh gosh, like I said above, it's built great. One thing about EHX, the quality of their pedals are AWESOME. They are my favorite fx company . It's pretty much just a pretty stomp box, lol. You could take it on the road and stomp it every day for several years and I'm sure it would work just like new the whole time.
Well, when it comes to fuzz, you just can't beat EHX. The double muff isn't QUITE as cool as some of the stuff you can do with the good ol' big muff, but if you experiment around with it you can get some pretty cool stuff out of it. Actually, I like mixing it with my other distortions. I mixed it with my big muff, and a Sans Amp GT2 distortion pedal and got a really cool, Smashing Pumpkinsish sound out of them all.
The Electro-Harmonix Double Muff is a distortion foot pedal designed for use with electric guitar but can be used with any electronic instrument. The pedal has two different channels in it, so you're getting two muffs in one here. However, this isn't the same Muff circuitry as the USA Big Muff, rather is from the original Muff from the late 60s. The pedal has 1/4" connections for input and output and can be powered with a nine volt power supply. It isn't rack mountable since it is a stomp box.
Most users will definitely not have a problem when it comes to the utilization of the Electro-Harmonix Double Muff. The pedal is very simple, straight forward, and easy to understand. It simply has two knobs marked muff one and muff two, and a switch to choose either having the single muff engaged or having both engaged. Having both of them engaged just gives you a thicker distortion. Beyond the two knobs and switch, there isn't anything else to work with here, which is kind of a bummer as I really enjoy having the tone and sustain parameters on the standard Big Muff pedals. I've never seen the manual for this pedal, but one isn't necessary unless you're having technical problems or some sort of other issue.
The sound quality of the Electro-Harmonix Double Muff is overall quite good. For me, it doesn't stand up to the USA Big Muff or any of the other Big Muff pedals simply because it lacks versatility. However, having the two different channels is definitely cool as it at least allows you to have two varying tones with the flip of a switch. The pedal certainly sounds like it is in the Muff family, but lacks the sustain available with the Big Muff. Having said all of this, if you're looking for some simple thick distortion or fuzz, the Double Muff will definitely give you that.
I first used the Electro-Harmonix Double Muff about six months ago when I got interested in checking out all of the pedals in the Muff family to see what would work best for me. While I ultimately decided on the standard Big Muff, the Double Muff definitely has some cool features to bring to the table. Having the two channels is a big plus, but it does trade off with having less versatility in the end because it lacks the controls. The price of the pedal is very reasonable, and I'd encourage anyone out there interested in a Muff pedal to check out the Double Muff as well as the other Big Muff pedals.

Dual channel distortion germanium, such as in the era of TS9!
The mouth is nice, clear rglages the sound palette is gniale!
Config simple, no need for manual, you can work the first or second channel or both.
Rglage of bias that simulates the end of life lamps.
Rather simple in all
Its level, there is an incredible dynamic, of course it is not for the mtalleux (whatever).
Three channels under foot, ca lot help to have THE sound!
Uin channel can be used as boost, as a second crunch or overdrive or distortion etc etc ..... Gnial what!
Since I'm using it, I can not do without me ... Voil all is said!
I traded this pedal against a germanium OD EHX I could not serve me and that did not suit what I wanted.
To be precise, I was looking for exactly sound very dirty, beat-type HP, so a coarse and raspy little compressed.
I'm not a hardcore player or music Upset (without any contempt ...), I play blues-rock slide in and sometimes I wanted to recapture the spirit of a blackface, a little, fuzzy open " break up "but of course at reasonable volume.
Achieved. setting: dual mode Muff (or cascade), the two gains 9hoo, that will appear this "little slip", the hardcore players.
So this small adjustment, my deluxe reverb literally hums as if HP was going to tear, it's big, beautiful, deliciously dirty and especially very playable, the slurry is still controllable fuzz chrod in power, in the sixth riff or lead.
This pedal so effective as a napalm bomb on a rice field, except that it transforms into an ultra clean blackface amp super dirty, that no effect of poorly controlled frequencies, it is very medium, like a wahwah back in the grave, or a nasal side.
I'm not a pro, just a big fan.
What I like about this pedal is that I find the sound of thousands of blues rock albums I've heard ... the recipe is simple; Fender amp tube and big muff, a classic that can be found at the last style set by jack white.
after she probably faults, no level control (dual mode lme muff is a master volume), but a muff mode, it's dead, it necessarily plays hard ...
no adjustment of tone, it must be done on the amp. Pedal highlights of big media and tend to crush the other frequencies (for info. anyway).
Therefore, the bulk of throwing up his jack is white, a kind of spray explosive never aggressive, dirty sound a napalm that can scuplter the volume knob, direct at the entrance of blacface.
I try the big muff, but I found the sound a bit "too much", especially not compressed too terrible to simulate the sound of HP tired.
while the double muff is less fuzz, less compressed hence the coarser, more airy and natural.
Success in the domains grimey blues sounds.
