I work as an audio/amp technician here in England, i have a bunch of scematic diagrams from the 70’s.
I recently built an issue 1 big muff, almost identical sound to the original (sounds loads better than the sovtek reissue!)
& i’m thinking about buildind a few of these babies to sell…
let me know if anyone’d be interested, these are what i’m thinking of building:
Issue 1 big muff
MXR phase 90 + EH small stone in one pedal box (this will be mega!)
They would be reasanably priced compared to the originals.

I wonder if you would be willing to allow someone (one of the board moderators that is knowledgeable about vintage pedals – which would exclude me!) review one of yours? I am sort of on the edge between trying to nab a vintage and settling for a re-issue. An affordable "new vintage" pedal, provided it really was good (not to doubt you, but you know how it goes) would be a good thing.

the idea of recreating an old big muff is a very good one..let us know how u get along as i’m a fellow resident of the uk and would be very interested in the custom pedals you’ve mentioned…I wish i could make my own pedals!!

isnÂ´t harmonix manufacturing the big muff again?
iÂ´ve heard so and i know they are doin reissues of some old pedals like, electric mistress and memory man + some more ,,
but hey itÂ´s still a very sweet thing youÂ´re doin and it would be great to hear the review of it…
if you can create a sound similar to the triangular pattern big muff then it would be a masterpiece….

Yeah that is very cool, I really want to learn how to do that. Is there anyway you could post a link to a sound sample? Also could you do certain mods to these pedals to taylor sound to the artist’s specifications?

That’s good news Dave.
I’m a home made pedal builder/user myself. Do you by any chance own a schematic for the deluxe memory man by EH ? If you do, I’m very interrested… Keep up the good work !

Thanks for all the interest in the pedals i’m making… if anyone is really keen for me to make one for them email me at[img]http://www.freakscene.net/ubb/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img][email protected] for me to sort out postage charges and stuff…i’ll probably charge around Â£50 for the muff pedal (plus whatever postage) which i think is reasonable considering the russion ones sell for Â£60.
i’ve just finished refining my big muff, it sounds great, very similar to an issue 1 version, it has a real big gain boost as well. i’ll also be housing it in a little purple box for all the mascis lovers out there!
Okay later friends.

Dave, was that the correct mail address? I tried to send you a message re: your Big Muff replicas but the mail got sent back.
Maybe a typing error??
Anyway I’m a fellow UK resident and am interested in your purple pedals. Have you got some ready already?
Hope to hear more

my email address is in my profile, its the correct one,
i have only made 2 muffs for my self so far, they take me a couple of nights once i get the parts.

Someone gets ahold of one of these, please post a review! I might be interested too.
