    SOUND QUALITY

    Ah the big muff ... Love it or hate it.

    In my debut guitar, I bought it solely on its reputation, the detour for a bargain anywhere.

    My first impressions? "Caca / yuck / ca is yucky and spin eardrums" I wanted me debarasser.Avant the yield to a low price, I plugged one last time, months after having a row closet.

    But after having wrung a lot of high gain pedal, I glimpse that big muff, she not cheat, she does not try to reconcile the overdrive, the distortion is live dirty, nasty, and what I did not like eventually seduce me. Horribly typed reconaissable, ca amused me a lot to play clean and break ca pressing the knob and swing the power chord has galore.

    it amuses me, am surprised by his grain, or two years ago I would have returned to live mag saying "this is crap"

    She is docile, in its visible appearance of a German tank of WW2. the knobs do what they are asked, always borrowing their dirt. But with other pedals as a compressor and an equalizer, it allows itself to tame, and psychedelic solos pope david gilmour are with a strat.

    reconaissable of 1000, I finally gave me part with it. I not use it all the time, but when you have to send the sauce, she reigns unchallenged in the DB. sharp and yucky it right.

    OVERALL OPINION

    -some months.

    - No.

    - I love his sound, the challenge it poses to the master, its ridiculous price / I do not like his huge size, its special power supply.

    _ QP report ... for a PS3 game, you fumble a legend of sound. this is much cheaper than the competition. but also differ.

    - If I would do this choice? Not at the beginning guitar, I have taken a more mainstream thing kind boss OD1. but according to my tastes, a big muff would inevitably landed on my PB at one time or another, and I regret not already have it, I rediscovered.

    sharp, dirty, huge, boring, it is a challenge that only those who give trouble will appreciate the value.

    This is the legendary Big Muff Pi Electro Harmonix home, no need to dwell on a pedal that most of us know, it is only an analog preamp distortion with transistors.

    UTILIZATION

    Usage is could not be more simple, volume, tone and sustain.

    Please note a little flat, the connection to the power that made Jack Mini.

    The manual has remained in its box, as with all pedals like this, it's plug and play!

    Editing sound is simple, the tone lets go of his deep in the low to fuzz sound in the treble.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use it in my pedalboard second position, just after a boss DS1. I play it mostly with a Mexican Stratocaster and a Fender Pro Junior.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use it in my pedalboard second position, just after a boss DS1. I play it mostly with a Mexican Stratocaster and a Fender Pro Junior.

    One can easily find the distortion sounds like Gilmour of Pink Floyd, or sounds extremely saturated like to play stoner rock to the Ancestors.

    Note also that if the rendering on my fender is excellent, this is not the case at the marshall of a friend, to his home, the precision is not really to go ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months now and this pedal gives me a very good lead in sustain and precise (on the fender) for my solos but also lowering the tone a chance to play as a rhythm guitarist, is So a very good pedal that EHX sells us here, especially with a price / quality ratio like this is hard to beat.

    I tested the blackstar pedals lamps that do not believe me at all, I hesitated with that in Hiwatt but the price made me decide, but with experience and more money I would have made the Hiwatt.

    A good first fuzz

    Electro-Harmonix Big Muff PIPublished on 08/13/14 at 11:56
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    This is an analog fuzz that requires special EHX power supply. For this particularly sucks detail I put only 7.10. Because the rest is solid! It is big and takes a lot of space on the pedalboard. Together with the name "Big Muff Pi" was it really expect anything else?

    UTILIZATION

    It sets the tone with three knobs: Volume, Tone, and Sustain. I read the manual for fun and frankly it serves no purpose. It is well aware that one of the settings are! It's simple but not necessarily ultra clear with the name of the knobs so 8/10 for me.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is where it all happens is not it? After all if you add pedals at our feet is not for fun! In short, it is a very thick f…

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is where it all happens is not it? After all if you add pedals at our feet is not for fun! In short, it is a very thick fuzz that will not go anywhere, I'd rather tell you. It is bold, aggressive and synthetic. At the same time it is known for it's Grandma, and in this area it dominates. I put 7/10 because it is in its domain but not mat because if the settings are too extreme it gets boiled sound !!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I for almost 1 year and I must say that since I have tried other fuzz that most caught my eye. Nevertheless, I am glad because this is a good first fuzz that lets you know if you like the effect or not and if so whether you want a little more lace effect or even more fat ! (I'm in the first case) The only real drawbacks are its size because the price is quite modest and unconventional power supply.
    In short, if I had to re-decide for a first fuzz I re-choose the Big Muff Pi again but perhaps nano or as little.

    A modern version of the Big Muff: always the same grain, but after the demos that I could listen, who were ringing big muff vintage sound with much more in the treble, it has more bass.
    For the rest, the same: a knob for volume, a tone, and a sustain (gain).
    Supply: 9v battery or mains plug with a 3.5mm mini jack
    The case is big enough, but the pedal is not heavy.
    Simply, if this effect is cheap, I think it's aprce the construction ets sloppy. So, I came across a new model or switch archait a half, and I changed it against a box ets or incorrectly fitted. Not too embarrassing for the moment, I just hope it does not become a problem over time helping ...

    UTILIZATION

    Pretty simple to use, but better to take the time to see how the buttons interact: eb general, the higher up the sustain, more must rebalance lowering the tone. Then, it is as we like.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is even with the very low sustain, rather fat. It has a grain Fuzzy, but it is not a fuzz: the sound seems full folds. This is not a criterion of quality, just a typed her differently.
    Rather dug in mediums, we get little thanks to the tone knob sound or very deaf, or slender and squeaky, or just very thick and fleshy.
    For my part, I do not push the gain background. Little is even maisser me in his first quarter and has a couple distortion or classic overdrive, and there, his end, and we approach much fuzz (if the other effect is before the chaining).
    I ammuse a couple it with a Big Muff Black russain is quite experimental! It is little ammuser, but I can not see myself playing a whole song with that sound.

    In terms of breath, when you push the sustain, obviously there, but I was expecting worse! It can make larsener, but it is manageable.

    The use that I love, this is by placing a crybaby before: it was a kind of tornado sound, the sound of the lead stands literally rhythmic sound, it is as if it was a 2nd guitar playing solos.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Frankly I love.
    I also have a black russian big muff 2002, very different, but for me, they are complementary. That is more oily, more fuzzy, with a bit more midrange. For those who think that modern versions deprive us of the quality of the former, it is false to me: the sound is different, but to me more suited to what I want to do (stoner) while keeping the same characteristic grain. So I am confused to play oldies without "copy" modern miss: the grain is typed, anchored in time.
    However, for manufacturing quality and strength, then I do not know. We can find with which they will have no pb, but it is haphazard. As it is the switch, that said, it is repaired. Electronic components, I think, are good.

    Billed as a fuzz, but I think it's an overdrive pushed beyond its limits. in a jack, a jack out and roll youth, the transistor (silicon memory) will do the job for you! And the big side pedal has a charm (even if the model is little big muff for which I never found its shade with the original).

    UTILIZATION

    Three buttons, tone volume and drive, nothing complex, but still very versatile result.

    Only the switch is hard to operate and brittle over time.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Welcome to the realm of fat, beefy, the dark and heavy. A so use sparingly (unless done in a simple fleshy distortion, it is also very well see black sabbath) before it is a dump.

    This is the queen of solo, which add an almost infinite sustain (especially with a Les Paul in the ass), masters of expression, it will help a lot.

    It also works with bass or keyboard (although there is the base model in the big muff, the result is not the same)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 years, my pedalboard is constantly evolving, but it is one of the reliable values ​​of the latter. The value for money is excellent, and the sound also. After she should not everyone, the lady is not clean.

    I remake this choice tomorrow if necessary, after there is often better than a lot of the big muff clones, but more expensive, and they have the privilege to have created!

    UTILIZATION

    I do not even remember if there was a manual.
    At the same time there are 3 knobs: volume, tone and sustain (fuzz volume) so good it's not very complicated ... We seem to find a good sound easily.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Effective effect if one seeks the sound "Big Muff" (normal in this case to buy the pedal ^ ^), we will say scooped a distortion pulling the fuzz and dirty sound. I bought it because I was looking for a fuzz (and I'm pretty germanium but it was one of my first fuzz pedals so I apologize ^ ^). The store clerk had advised me ... Brief.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used less than 5 hours in all and for all. The sound may appeal, however this is not what I wanted. I should have at the time rather buy secondhand, history test and if you do not like me, to sell it without losing too much. The value for money is pretty good though. Warning pedal can generate breath if we push the maximum sustain. But these budgets (on occasion), hard to do as well. When this is compared to the old Muff, I do not comment because I've never tried it, and anyway it is not in the same budget either!
    With the experience I do not have that choice because it is not a product for me.

    I bought this pedal brand-new for $59 bucks at Sam Ash. Throughout my playing years I've always looked for a distortion pedal that was heavy and thick. I used a Boss Turbo Distortion for many years because that was the closest distortion that fit my criteria. Recently I read a couple of articles in which Big Muff Distortion/Sustainer was mentioned. I decided to buy it, and I'm so glad I did.

    I really love the distortion - period. It's the type of distortion I've been looking for forever. The pedal looks great and is very simple to use. If you like heavy, thick, and warm distortion, this pedal is for you. I still can't believe I found the pedal of my dreams.

    The only thing I don't like about it is that it is powered by battery only. You can't plug an adapter to it - but who cares.

    This pedal is so well constructed that I think it's going to last for many years and still look great. It's very good looking pedal.

    This pedal is the best distortion pedal I have used and, believe me, I've used many different ones.
