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 Muff in a tiny package
20.09.2016
I had an original early 80s Big Muff, which I always enjoyed playing with. As anyone who owned the original can tell you, the original is housed in a hug casing with most of the inside empty apart from the battery compartment and a small board. Now this has been shrunk down to this pint-size version.

Frequency pickers might find slight differences between this unit and the original units, but in a band situation or in a mix recording you really cannot hear the difference. It takes up much less space on the pedal board, standard 9v power socket and a good healthy click to switch off and on.

I still have the same fun as I had with the original Big Muff, but in a much more user-friendly size.

Still in my view, Big Muff is the best fuzz you can buy and this gives you THE fuzz sound which you can pay a lot more for in other brands and still don't get the sound.

Highly recommended.
