Electro Harmonix Little Big Muff Pi

Effect Pedal for Electric Guitar

The Electro Harmonix Big Muff Pi is one of the classics among distortion pedals. As one of the first pedals made, it delivered a harmonious, tube-resembling distortion sound, and so it is not surprising that it was particularly favoured by guitarists who valued "beautiful" overdrive sounds. Typical of the Big Muff is the almost violin-like sustain. Santana is said to have used it on his first records; Jimi Hendrix had at least one, and David Gilmour of Pink Floyd still uses it today in his vast collection of effects. But modern musicians, such as Korn, use it to shape their distortion sound.

Heavy distortion

Ray97, 10.07.2017
This is the first distortion pedal I've used and I'm starting to love it more and more every time I try it. The distortion is pretty heavy and muddy and even on lowest settings it's very fuzzy and dirty. The distortion is excellent for heavy rhythm playing - it's very dirty but has a good attack to it. I find it a bit too heavy for lead playing, although it works with a bit of tweaking on the tone and sustain. Power chords roar with it and the metal housing feels like it can take beating. The controls can give you a few options in tone but one should keep in mind that even with sustain turned down it's still pretty muddy.

Pros:
built like a tank
brilliant for heavy rhythm playing/power chords
massive sound

Cons:
a bit too much for lead playing
doesn't "roll off" at lower settings/not very dynamically responsive (very muddy even when sustain and guitar volume are turned down)

Cool pedal

Darren O., 10.07.2015
First i only bought this as i heard the Big Muff was used by Kurt Cobain on Nevermind and that was the sound i was looking for a E.P i was doing.

Firstly make sure you have TS cables and not TRS as most pedals are designed to to only work with TS to conserve power. (TRS can be used on the output not the input).

Okay so the pedal has 3 knobs and a foot switch.

It has sounds for different genres but not every setting is going to work. With this kind of pedal your going to need a lot of tweeking to get the tone you want.

The sustain is the amount of distortion on this pedal. I find the best spots for a good sound is at 12, 3, and 5 o clock.

This is a good pedal if you like the big fuzz sound. Would suit Metal and Punk more than any other genres in my opinion.

Over all i recommend you might find it useful to have on your pedal board but not for everyone.
