The Big­gest Muff of all time!

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

Long revered for its sweet singing tone and vi­o­lin-like sus­tain, the clas­sic three-knob Big Muff pedal has helped de­fine the sound of rock gui­tar for over 44 years. Now Elec­tro-Har­monix (EH X), the Muff’s cre­ators, have uveiled the new Deluxe Big Muff (around £95) which boasts a se­lec­tion of ex­tra fea­tures for those who yearn for more sound shap­ing con­trol.

In ad­di­tion to de­liv­er­ing all the de­fin­i­tive sounds of the orig­i­nal, the Deluxe Big Muff Pi fea­tures a foot-switch­able MIDS Sec­tion that en­ables the user to tai­lor their midrange and re­ally cut through the mix. Its Fre­quency knob al­lows you to vary the cen­tre fre­quency of the EQ while the Level con­trol sets the boost or cut amount. A High/Low Q switch se­lects ei­ther a wider or nar­rower band­width around the boost or cut fre­quency.

A Noise Gate with ad­justable con­trol elim­i­nates noise while pre­serv­ing the player’s at­tack and orig­i­nal tone. An ad­justable At­tack con­trol adds punch and clar­ity to sin­gle notes and chords, while a two-po­si­tion switch pro­vides a nor­mal or bass boost mode, when greater bot­tom end is de­sired.

The new Deluxe Big Muff Pi is also equipped with an Ex­pres­sion Pedal in­put that lets the mu­si­cian sweep the MIDS ’ fre­quency in real time, with their foot. The pedal fea­tures True By­pass for sig­nal path in­tegrity. It is housed in a solid die-cast pack­age, comes equipped with a 9V bat­tery, and can be pow­ered by an op­tional adapter.
