The Electro Harmonix Metal Muff is an analog distortion guitar pedal. It has a 1/4 inch input and output and is not a rackable unit as it is a foot stomp box. It needs some sort of nine volt power to run on.


UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Electro Harmonix Metal Muff is really simple and straightforward. It simply has three knobs - one for distortion level, one for filer (EQ), and one for volume level. It is easy to get a thick sound from this and is easy to manipulate the different parameters to get a sound that suits your needs. I don't have a manual for this, so I don't know how useful it is when learning this pedal.


SOUND QUALITY

The distortion sound from the Electro Harmonix Metal Muff is really thick and full. I would recommend this if you are looking for some really heavy, metal-like distortion for your guitar. I have only used this with guitar and it probably isn't all that useful for other instruments or genres other than metal or hard rock. Turning the distortion all the way up will give you a huge tone that is great for getting that fat distortion tone heard on many metal records.


OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Electro Harmonix Metal Muff for about two years. While somewhat narrow in its ability, for getting a thick distortion sound it sounds really great. I would use this more for big rhythm playing rather than lead, but will work fine for both. It is hard to find a pedal that has as thick of a tone as this and the price is dirt cheap if you can get one used and quite reasonable new. If you are playing heavy metal or hard rock and need a pedal that will give you a tone for these types of genres, this pedal is worth a definite look.
