I’ve got a Japanese Jazzmaster (with standard pick-ups). I also have a big muff pi (black one with yellow print, Sovtek I believe). I think, the big muff sounds best on a transistor amp. I own a Fender deluxe 112+ amp (transistor), and an old 70′ Carlsbro amp (tube). The sound I get out of the Fender amp with the big muff is really loud and crunchy, better than out of the Carlsbro.
My advice: Try a good transistor amp…
Good luck !
