Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe
The Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe is a distortion pedal that is best suited for electric guitar.  The pedal is an analog one and has 1/4 connections for input and output.  It isn't rack mountable as it is a stomp box.


Using the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe isn't hard at all as all of the parameters are easily manipulated.  The pedal has knobs for threshold, comp volume, fuzz volume, tone and sustain.  It also has a switch for blending and the pedal has built in compression as well.  I haven't seen the manual for the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe so I can't comment on it, but I can say that I think you can get away without using a manual with this pedal.


The sound quality of the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe is awesome.  If you have ever heard any of the versions of the Big Muff, you know what these are capable of.  This pedal has the grit and sound of the other Big Muffs, but with the added parameters comes more possible sounds and simply makes the pedal more versatile overall.  I use the pedal with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb usually and I'm always happy with this set up because it gives me a huge distortion tone to go with a super clean amp sound.  You really can't go wrong with the distortion from the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe.


I've been using the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe for a few years and this is one of my favorite models of the Big Muff.  I like having the extra parameters as it increases the amount of tones that are possible with this classic pedal.  The price is reasonable, although I believe that they no longer make  If you are looking for a distortion pedal that will absolutely rip, the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe is your new best friend.

Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe
It's a Big Muff with Intgr transformer that plugs directly into the so 220Volts.
In addition to the classic Big Muff Pi circuit States, a compressor circuit is available indpendamment.

Electro Harmonix typical metal box, Super Solid.


It has a single output Fuzz, fuzz + or compressor, or compressor alone.

3 knobs for the classic fuzz circuit: volume, tone and susatin
2 knobs for the compressor: threshold and volume
I use the effects in series or parrallle.

Trs easy grip.


The Sound of Fuzz Big Muff Deluxe is really great, it's really the sound of vintage Big Muff (the pedal almost 30 years!)
For it is against the compressor cranked makes a sound not great, I use a envirion quarter.


Perfect for those who want the sound of the original Big Muff (the pedals is no longer manufactured)

I was fortunate to come across a great opportunity, I do not regret it.

Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Deluxe
Fuzz is an analog and a compressor. The case is metal and the whole is very strong.
There are two versions: the 1330 EH blend with the switch, and EH-3053/3054 with a switch in series effects.
The first version, I have the chance to have, is considered the best of both.

There is a blend output (comp mixed signals and fuzz), and an output comp: it must be plugged into two amps, but I never tried.

The pedal plugs into current (integrated port), which for me is the negative (I prefer to use rechargeable batteries)


It's very simple, turn the knobs, we rely on his ear to the appropriate settings and go!


I've had a Muff more "vintage", with the transistors (here's technology op-amp), but the Big Muff Deluxe is comparable to a Rams Head from my point of view: it Indeed, apart from traditional Big muff with built-in compressor, and does not play on the same table. One recognizes the sound of a Big Muff, but with the compressor, even without pushing it, it gives more presence, and finally a little something that makes it very attractive. It is also easier to use live or in repeat (with the other I had to constantly review my settings for drilling in the mix ... recurring problem of Muffs)

Small compared to almost goal
The deluxe is far superior to current Muffs (I've bought one recently to try and to try mods) Little or normal. It is also superior to the Op-amp vintage left on the market, thanks to the compressor.
In fact, she has an amazing grain:)
Also, I had big problems with my Muffs transistors compared to transparency in its clear, and there is nickel. Cool!
I love the Muffs, and I love this version! 10.


I have two years and tried many other fuzz. It is amazing when you take a little time to adjust.
For me: not too much sustain, compression in the first quarter ... after must be adjusted and have fun:)
