Is that anyone that can describe the difference between the three big muffs out there: the green one, the black one, and the USA reissue?February 6, 2006 at 1:29 pm #114652
The USA one is more ‘metal,’ where the Russian one is more ‘classic rock.’February 6, 2006 at 2:38 pm #114653
the russian version you have to use 9Volt batteries because it doesn’t have a adapter outlet, which is the only problem i have with it. not sure about the American. the american looks way better, imo.February 6, 2006 at 3:33 pm #114654
I like the Russian one, it’s alot muddier. Plus I have an adaptor for the 9V battery plug.February 6, 2006 at 5:38 pm #114655
there are at least 10 different versions of the BIGMUFF…
i have always used the ones from the early 80s.
they sound better and are discernably different from modern ones.
and as RogerMayer has said-"batteries are better".

I have heard that batteries are better, but i clipped the wires on my battery input and cut the end off of a 9-volt adaptor and connected them.
I agree that the one i have does sound very metal. It’s great for lead, but when i’m playing chords, it’s just overbearing. I think i want to get a sound that’s less muddy and more crunchy and fuzzy.
I should really just save up and get a zvex fuzz factory.February 6, 2006 at 7:18 pm #114657
Zvex is awesome but the prices are fucking criminal. I want a Machine big time.February 6, 2006 at 7:21 pm #114658
my big muff when mixed with flanger makes this awesome fuzzy/spacey sound. i love it.
and it’s better to use batteries? i came upon this thought a while ago, i just put in a new battery in my big muff (for the amount i play, i change it about once a month) and its so refreshing to hear a new fresh battery and was wondering if a adapter would keep this sound.February 24, 2006 at 6:22 pm #114659
now theres more than three(darn you electro hormonix). theres the metal muff, the mini muff, the double muff, the russian big muff, the nyc ri big muff, the nyc one is a little "fatter" "more creamy." the russian one is thinner and ahrsher(this information about this pedal isnt comeing from my mouth, but a friend who owns one) and the double muff is two muff fuzz’s(not big muffs) in a box, not two full fledged big muffs, good sounds if your into it. i have no clue what the metal, and mini muff’s sound like. if you want something wild, id get a fender blender(hardly useable in your average sense) or the fuzz factory(amazing) but out of the big muffs, i myslef would(and did) pick the nyc one. its just better quality.February 24, 2006 at 6:25 pm #114660
the Zvex Lo-fi loop, Wooly Mammoth, and the Fuzz Probe look and sound awesome. the Probe pedals are so unique. never seen anything like it.February 24, 2006 at 6:49 pm #114661
what in the world do the probe(s) do? ive looked, and i’ve read, and i’ve got nothing on it.February 24, 2006 at 7:17 pm #114662June 20, 2006 at 5:36 pm #114663

I’m really diggin’ my Little Big Muff. It’s so much smaller and getrs the same tone and sustain as the fulsize NYC reissue. A great pedal for a great price. Is uggest to anyone who likes the NYC reish to check out the new Little BM. It’s definitely worth it. It saves a decent amount of pedal space on yr board.July 18, 2006 at 4:16 am #114665
I read this thread and then bought a zvex fuzz factory online straight away (cause I just got a job and am going mad with money) I hope it’s worth it.
