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.
