Fozen's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Warm overdrive"

Electro-Harmonix English Muff'n
Overdrive Pedal 2 lamps
12V AC (yes I have the U.S. version) ... but thank you Cioks!
It must consume less 800mA


Volume - Gain - Trebble - Mid - Low
Simplissimes settings


This pedal is the "Overdrive" to me.
I do not gain goes wrong and serious mid + treble leaving far behind and there was a great sound crunchy and serious, with a hallucinatory presence that you drill the guts!
I play with a Strat American Special pickups Texans.
This couple is perfect there ... like a wine agreement / cheese if you like!


I use it for 3 years
I compared a lot of demos and no other pedal brought me the warmth and presence of the EHX.
What I like the most serious presence crunchy!
Good it is expensive ... but it sounds like we did not often. and then the case is super solid.
With experience, yes, a thousand times yes I referrer that choice!

The Electro Harmonix Français Muff'n is a distortion pedal.

It uses two lamps (Electro Harmonix).
Provided with specific adapter 12 V. Note: you can not use batteries.


Use: super simple, turn the knobs. (Input Gain, Output Gain, bass / middle / aspen)


This is the best pedal distortion / overdrive / gain / Booster I've ever tried. It gives her a very hot respects the sound of guitars. It lets you use the guitar volume while keeping the momentum. Anything goes: Hendrix, ACDC, SRV, Red Hot Chilli Peper, but also sounds kind 'Britpop'. It is incredible.

It feels great to use a tube amp, but with a gain knob that is graduated to 25.

However, this pedal is not suitable for Metal and Hard styles. For jazz, eventually it can work if you use simple microphone and you turn down the gain.


It's a great pedal, the sound is exceptional.


I do not know if it's random, but I had to return two times this pedal to my dealer. After using 2 / 3 days, I had a sudden loss of half of the gain and volume. The pedal was losing its appeal. I do not know if it has lights or power, but the transformer is often quoted on the forums to be very fragile.

If we forget this, I think this pedal is essential to your equipment.

Electro-Harmonix English Muff'n
Overdrive / distortion tube (2 lamps)
big box, it remains in place (even better in my pedalboard!)


Manuel almost no time is needed to fully master the beast so small a point less for Tetra good goal, but well worth the 10/10


The best that I tested

really presents a dynamic hyper-sensitive game (trying to mediator and the fingers, blues rock etc. ..)

I love, love, love !!!!!

very precise, a true equalization (not just a knob tonalite but rather three knobs, one bass a middle trebble 1)


It's an about me that I have this pedal
I tested almost everything that it was in overdrive distortion and a light that I chose it!
today with a little more time derrierre: I fell in love! Sound, dynamic channel equalizer short saturated with an excellent crunch amps "British" to not even up to 2 kg the dream!

2 lamps, a transformer provides

I would do the same choice (and even some times in my delirium j (buying another for two channels at the foot .... lol)

Electro-Harmonix English Muff'n
Disto Overdrive (preamp) at 2 levels with lamps in a housing ehx solid and huge! (Almost 3 Boss LxW)
true bypass with LED indicator

Only buy second-hand models that come with their power supply, otherwise you will not find a 12v cap of this format on the market!
Despite the strange choice of this connection, the power supply of 1000 mA is absolutely stable and causes no parasite!


5 knobs:
- Gain (first level)
- High, medium, low
- Volume (2nd level)

the config looks simple but the EQ knobs are very sensitive, the progressive mega drive is up to 12 was an overdrive with a grain really bluesy, it climbs beyond distortion.

not so easy to use that here in the early days, it then becomes more instinctive, it responds perfectly to the volume of the guitar which is essential to master.

The manual is reduced to almost nothing as always with EHX, I admit that I loved examples of presets to start but no regrets ...


The overdrive is great, really special with a grain, this pedal is anything but neutral.
the dynamics are great, and it responds well to be precise in highlighting the faults of the game, which does not necessarily please everyone ...!

The bypass is 100% transparent and the whole is incredibly quiet, no breath, no buzz.

I use it with an Ibanez RG-505 on the single (3), or in positions 2 or 4 for more aggressive rock.
Back in a combo Tonelab / Atomic 112, it took me an hour before finding balance settings to enjoy 100% this pedal.
I see the result in my config and I guess it really has eploser in a real tube amp!

I'm an add-on to me after 3 weeks of use, this pedal is great, FINALLY sound for me, just me, I can not hear every day (according to the boss ds-1, BD- 2 and SD-1!)
it's hot, FLOW, that answers the thunder god is alive, and when I want to calm her down and make it more "synthetic", I stick to a TS-808!
Do not hesitate to push the volume down even if the volume of the amp to take advantage of his temperament.
config my favorite:
11h volume, gain between 10 and 12, 10:30 hi, Middle 15h, 14h low
tucked into a metal muff, the grain is transferred to the distortion and gives him a cow character.


What I like most: an audio quality.
I use essentielemment in Overdrive, and it is the grail I was looking for in this category!
I have owned before BD-2, keeley BD-2 operatinginstructions and Monte Allum, TS808, SD-1, SD-1 operatinginstructions ...
my favorite so far was the BD-2 operatinginstructions Monte, but even the great Boss is not as good as living Français Muff'n!
What I like least: the EHX is huge, even bigger than my Metal Muff, and in three dimensions must be provided a bag just for her when we move!

A reasonable value if like me you buy it in Canada or US, 130 € with shipping costs + 10 € adapter 220-110v in Europe the prices of luxury pedals are a scam, thank you for importers and other wholesalers / intermediaries who until sugar diabetes!

If it were lost or stolen, or broken, I would definitely look for another!

gratte guitare's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Electro-Harmonix English Muff'n
Disto 2-lamp type triode. Power transformer with separate plug-type high dyn parleur.La manufacturing confidence.


Nothing more simple volume control, gain, bass, mid, high.
Each setting is readable and interesting.
It is difficult to obtain different levels of saturation while maintaining a
constant output level.

In practice this defect disappears, because we manage to memorize the position of the volume and gain knobs.


I play and the shades are fully respected.
After using The Boss OD2, the Ibanez tube screamer of a multi digitech effect, but also a Korg AX1000G, no doubt this pedal is the best I have encountered. Even distortion in depth, the game is fully respected. It's extraordinary.

Obviously the price is a lack of sustain.
If one wishes to sustain more, see the feeback, I put a fuzz before this one, and
rule too much gain on the British, to avoid noise.

With the gain to a minimum and the guitar volume knob slightly reduced, the sound is super clear and without distortion, to serve as a preamp for the mixing desk.


I use it with a Telecaster, a Start, a Yamaha Super Start, a
Ibanez Artist and a Fender Twin Reverb amp.

Super clean and the sound of my Twin sone come a Marshal!
I find it inconceivable to part with it!
I even put aside my Tube screamer! Which for me is to rank second.

Electro-Harmonix English Muff'n
Vintage distortion has lamps
an input output jack
power supplied


Setup could not be easier
severe acute level gain medium
no manual ...


The sound is very good
I used the Strat with us hss and a standard sg and we must search among the possible settings because it respects well the instrument and a very good adjustment on an ideal is not necessarily with the other.
sound sometimes seems very keen to see garish but I Assistant him maxon OD808 PAID grave.je the utise in a blues junior and c may be what makes it garish.
Once set that says I have a clear channel fender, overdrive and distortion madness infernal vintage ...


I will never use that for three days and I have already found the sound I was looking for (type marshall vintage) c is so c is happiness ...
I have previously used a Marshall Valvestate 8080 then a pod pro and lately a vox AD30VT sold very quickly ...
I only play at home and c is a good way to get a low volume one grain of this type without 100w head SET AT 0.01 ...
payee 183 euros including shipping I find very correct price considering its got and I do it again this choice without hesitation.

Electro-Harmonix English Muff'n
Has Overdrive lamp (heater sound), all analog.
Between 6.3 mm output jack, AC adapter provided.

True bypass!!


Simple as pie, a drive, 3 band eq and a master.


The quality is Submitted, is probably the brand for sth! I use it mainly with my Mayones Setius gtm, which is mounted with a neck pickup SH2. Trs effective single coil, with just under double. has depends what one looks like her.
BMOL little, if like me you live in an area unfortunately pole (Electromagnetic rail !!!), and more with single coil, the pedal tends to significantly increase noise. What is ultimately a logical disto!


I use it for one month and frankly it has given a second life to my transistor amp!! For the red hot or hendrix little wings in this pedal will seduce you! All types of metal, go your way. We stop at a crunch grow well. A little CHRE, but there are times when it is better to SAVE a little and buy products like the! I do it again this choice without a doubt. What happiness
