All hail the muff!

First things first, the EHX Big Muff PI is a MASSIVE pedal! Having never owned one or seen one up close I was very surprised at the sheer size of the thing when it first arrived!

Don't let the giant size of the pedal put you off though, the Big Muff PI is a fantastic sounding fuzz pedal, used on countless classic records, and is a worthy addition to any pedalboard! If it's size is a concern, It's also available in a variety of smaller sizes.

The Big Muff sound is a heavily distorted, but warm and creamy fuzz, defined by its signature long sustained notes, which are often described as being 'violin-like'. It's an excellent pedal for both lead guitar and rhythm guitar and can even sound especially dirty on bass!

The pedal lacks any extensive features, opting for 3 knobs to control the extent of the Big Muff's fuzz. You may not have huge amounts of control, but the Tone and Sustain knobs provide the user with a simple way of sculpting rich, dirty tones. There are newer fuzz boxes on the market with more features, but in my opion the Big Muff doesn't need extra options to overcomplicate it's sound and design!

EHX's Big Muff PI is a fantastic pedal, with a rich heritage in guitar music. Every player should get one.

Not so many sounds, but great ones.
Francescod 09.09.2014
As stated in the title, in this big box you won't find many different nuances of distorsion, but I really love the few tones you can get out of it. it's a creamy and thick fuzz distorsion, probably the most famous sound of 90s rock. Think about Nirvana's legendary wall of sound. I had to buy separately an adapter as the 9V plug is different from standard pedals. Besides that and the large footprint in your pedalboard, I guess this is one of the best sounding distorsion pedals at this price, and if you're on the rock side, sooner or later you'll have to try one of these. Build quality is good, feels solid and stable. I tried it on a Marshall JCM900 and sounded really good. You can also blend it with a modulation pedal (mxr phase90 ie) and has creamy, tasty vibes. Works like charm with a fender stratocaster, and quite good on a gibson les paul as well. A one trick pony that deserves your attention, for sure.

PS
Classic Fuzz for some Classic Tones
Paul Swan 12.01.2019
This pedal is the staple of good ol' fashioned rock. From Hendrix to pretty much everybody else, even your mother probably owns one.

For real, amazing tone alongside the Black Cat Super Fuzz, top 2 favorite fuzz pedals. Great controls, sustain, volume and tone.

Things to improve: Would be nice to have a couple of knobs controlling different envelopes in the audio spectrum. Could change up the type of tone, whether you want a more bass/treble from your fuzz pedal. Have to do it manually or through another board to achieve this affect.

Overall, Fantastic for your first pedal-board and wanting good rock fuzz tone. Go check out the other versions (Russian Muff, Mini Pi) for there different tones, see which one you like. This is the original! Still making them baby! WOOOOOO!
