Finally EHX have come to their senses
White Ship Caused the Anarchy, 19.12.2017
I have been waiting for this for years.

Muff copies and originals have been going for 200 Euros online for ages now, and finally EHX have reissued this killer pedal for a sensible price !

Fuzz pedals are amongst the simplest of circuits and the price inflation as a result of EHX not being in the market was getting ridiculous.

This pedal is great, easy to use, records like a dream, sounds better than my Tiny Terror HW tube distortion and is nothing. NOTHING, like that current NYC Big Muff. It is more subtle, usable and articulate by a milliooooon miles

Most important for me was how this pedal pronounced all of the strings, even when playing and open chord, This was not the case for the NYC version, that has all of its bass frequencies completely overpower anything that is played on the first three strings.

Another thing was the natrual sustain of this pedal, which was the complete opposite to the NYC pedal's almosted gated sustain.

This pedal is a big suprise to me and the price will blow the Hoof, the Musket Fuzz, and all the rest of the boutique manufacturers with their overpriced fuzz boxes out of the water. Thank you EHX, welcome back!

The fuzz I wanted
Ilias K, 15.01.2019
I have to say that I'm not really a fan of traditional fuzz pedals. That's why I love EHX Green Russian big muff. It's not a traditional muddy fuzz pedal. It's more of a heavier overdrive pedal (at least to my ears). It's perfect for what I do (post-rock/post-metal).

Chris Q., 21.04.2018
Way lower gain than a standard Big Muff and a much milder mid scoop make this a way more versatile fuzz sound. Absolutely incredible into a tube amp. I've used a lot of different Muffs, and this one is probably the most musical I've ever used.

Awesome Big Muff Sounds
albertotp, 12.08.2018
After watching so many videos on all the different types of Big Muff, I opted to go with this Green Russian one. Among the new reissues of Big Muffs, this seems to be the best one in emulating vintage muff sounds. The sound is very powerful and bassy and it gives the feeling that the amp is going to explode! Loads of juicy sustain and harmonics. Awesome! The transient attack is rather slow and the bottom end flubby and fat like in most Muffs.
The amount of volume and gain you get can is ridiculous. Here one must be a bite careful because any small noise from power-supply or other pedals gets amplified a lot (I use mostly singe coils), but the pedal itself does not produce any noticeable noise. The tone control is really versatile with a wide range of tones and it produces some cool weird sounds at extreme settings. For the gilmourish violin-like sound, I stick a compressor or a compressed low-gain overdrive pedal in front of it. This pedal is very light but well built and the knobs and by-pass switch seem durable. I can only recommend it!

Sounds like my old Black Russian Muff
captain sousie, 16.01.2019
I am very happy with this version of the muff. It is aggressive and thick. I use it for bass and the low end loss is surprisingly minimal. Highly recommended.

My favourite muff
Pete_L, 29.01.2019
Using this Muff first in a chain of Muff-OD-Tremolo-Tape Delay-Tuner-Clean valve amp. Great for a lead or rhythm sound. A bit darker sounding than most other muffs I've had which is a great bonus. Less fizz and more fuzz!
For my set up I had to put it first in the chain as it buzzed and howled if placed anywhere else.

Awesome pedal
Rudie, 27.11.2018
I love this pedal. Get warm, thick and bassy tones or get awesome dirty/fizzy tones, this pedal does it all. It handles great, theres lots of different tones you can get when turning the knobs. Sound quality is very good, couldn't expect less from EHX. Build quality rocks, the hidden message on the back of the PCB is a really cool touch aswell, follow the smoke!

Very happy with this pedal, you should get one.

Brilliant sounding fuzz
Dano67, 26.02.2018
The best fuzz sound I've ever heard. Had a nano big muff before but didn't think much of it. This is much thicker sounding, has massive bass and less of a mid scoop than usual which I prefer, its perfect for power chords. Not the most versatile, changing the guitar volume going into it or the sustain on it doesn't clean it up much but thats not really what its for, it does one sound perfectly

Russian Big Muff
Philly Joe, 24.10.2018
I use it for my Fender Rhodes. It's range from mid to (very) low is very satisfying. There's enough transparency in the tone. Feels like a tank.

Old school muff sounds
SGStandard1, 09.01.2018
Seems a top-notch pedal, controls are useful and generate nice variety of fuzz and muff sounds. Gets close to the OG, a little less volume and gain. Very useful for fuzzy rock/metal on guitar or bass.

My favorite fuzz
breathingsequence, 04.02.2018
I had Big Muff Pi NYC and several other fuzzes, but this is the chosen one. I have Fender Highway One Telecaster and Fender '72 Tele Thinline Reissue and it works awesome on both of them.

Smooth sound, awesome pedal size (the original NYC is like 3-4 times bigger). Best fuzz on the market for my type of playing.
