Good distortion pedal
Nigel H., 02.05.2017
I bought this unit as i wanted a distortion pedal to run sounds from my computer and from synths through it to process them and re-record.

I had a few issues with the first unit I got as it would power off a few seconds after the input cable was inserted and would die. Also, the threads on the screws for the battery compartment were bad on the first unit and i could not close it up afterwards. I sent it back to thomann and they supplied me with a replacement immediately. I was extra careful installing the battery on the new unit and in the end i would recommend using this with a powersupply as i keep forgetting to take out the input cable and the battery goes flat right away. Due to the bad design of the battery compartment i would not recommend opening and closing it each time the battery goes flat.

Other than that the unit is well built and very compact. The sound quality is great and the distortion produces a lot of different tones.

This is a good distortion pedal. its a shame they decided to put the battery compartment behind 4 screws.

don't buy it
Krausz, 31.07.2015
This pedal does not sound anything like the big muff. It is noisy, and the sustain is dirty. I have a Palmer professional power supply, and if I engage this pedal it generates a crapload of noise, and the sound is horrible, no matter how I link it in the pedal chain. If you did consider this pedal for a bit of extra grid and sustain (just as the advertisement states on the EHX website "if you like Pink FLoyd, this is the setting for you" like I did, forget about it. It sounds awful, and nothing even close to Pink Floyd. I have the same pickups as Gilmore, and a real good amp. You get much closer to his sound (if you would want that at all, which I don't), you have much more chance with the EHX nano metal pedal, on a clean tube amp channel and bit of chorus (Neo clone) and delay(whichever if clean).
And it is also a tone suck pedal.
I do not recommend it at all.

Great sound
Nickbwin, 16.05.2019
I used to have a big muff, but i sold my big muff to a flatmate. Now muffless i had to search for a new big muff. But I didn’t have much muff space. This nano muff is the perfect fit, and for people like me who like their muffs to come in all shapes and sizes i am very pleased with the results. As the kind of guy who appreciates all muffs I cant favour one muff over another based just on size, but the same goes for the sound on this muff. It sounds just like a big muff to me. Looks wise this nano muff is styled just like the big muff and it works very well. It’s built great and i expect this muff to last. If you’re in the market for a muff I’d recommend the nano muff.

Big fuzz, tiny foot print
MatthewG, 08.07.2014
Its exactly what you would expect, it sounds exactly the same as a standard big muff but tiny!
it packs the same huge sound with incredible sustain like the original and is perfect for those black keys, jack white or david gilmour moments!
or if you just need utter filfth with endless sustain.
It has a nice metal enclosure that survived being dragged about on my board for months without a scratch to show for it!
nice big knobs that are easy to operate with your feet and true bypass switching so there is no leakage into your clean signal.
Overall a great pedal that i would strongly recommend to anybody looking for that tone especially in such a small package.
