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.

True to the classic
Akseli 03.10.2021
To clarify, this pedal is not subtle. It's a unique and heavy fuzz, which more or less takes over your tone with little regard to the amp or guitar you are using. This being said, it's amazing at what it does - especially for the price. The "little" version is very close to the original Big Muff. Definitely worth it for the convenience.

Small minus for the stiff and clicky foot switch.

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)

Nice fuzz sounds & saturated sustain
Subtle 27.01.2021
I use the Little Big Muff Pi for 2 reasons mainly, first one being, I needed a warm fuzz sound for recording riffs and the second reason being sustain for lead playing since my pickup output is somewhat weak on the e and b strings. It does both of these jobs for me very well.

Some other things i noticed: The casing is very sturdy, the controls are very intuitive and can blend some crazy sounds, depending on what you dial in the pedal can create crazy loud feedback but just keeping it away from the amp fixies that issue.

Lots of character
Anonymous 17.06.2014
This was the first single-effect pedal for my electric guitar I purchased 3 years ago, and it still is on my pedalboard, getting much use.
Let me first point out a downside - there is a clicking sound in the amp, when you use the footswitch. Otherwise, it is a fine little pedal. Its character is somewhere between fuzz and distortion, and this changes depending on the pickup you use (neck or bridge) and the position of the tone knob. The sound is very juicy and full, and the pedal is usable and great-sounding with all the different types of guitars, both humbuckers and single coils.The Little Big Muff would benefit from a separate low/high control, though.
The case is very solid, and surprisingly the pedal came with a battery inside, which is a pleasant bonus (you do not know that before you open the casing though).
A great purchase all in all, never had a single regret.
