  • YES! YES! My Grizzly Muff Project came to life!!!

    So, I got a Muff kit from General Guitar Gadgets. Everything in the kit is quality except for the solder.



    I decided to build a Red Army/old Civil War Clone with my cache of 430pF caps and metal can transistors.



    I painted it, sanded it, got the stamp/ink, lacquered it, loved it, etc.



    Couldn't get it to work right. Dicked around iwth it for a while. Then it wouldn't pass any tone.



    Fast forward many weeks. I resoldered some joints, etc. The thing came alive and roared in my face. It pretty much blew me through the wall. I had an ear to ear smile while this grizzly bear peered at me from in front of that menacing red LED.



    ****************, man. Holy ****************. I think I might buy another GGG Muff Kit just to try another build. FWIW, BAT Pharaohs are/or were built on GGG Muff boards.

        I built a Green Russian clone on a madbean board a couple weeks ago.



        This thing freaking sings. I love it. Notice the mids switch. Doesn't really change the muff-y character but definitely makes it more audible in a mix.

          dude, that looks awesome. How did you do the mids switch? Is it a common mod easily found on a website?

              It is listed as a "suggested mod" under their Mod ideas. http://www.generalguitargadgets.com/...8044a841b3e85a



              Basically you can change C10 or C11 (I just did C10) and it makes your mids MUCH more present. Just wire 2 leads to each capacitor pad for C10 to a DPDT switch and use whatever your initial value was on one side (3n9 for Russian and I believe Civil War also) and put a 1n on the other side.



              There's more complicated mods but this is the easiest and best sounding IMO.

                  my problem with my love for muff is this: ok you get lost in the mix, right? change some caps...bam, mid boost. ok, now you are KINDA present in the mix, with a middy sounding muff, so it doesnt sound like a muff anymore.

                  i need to create a way, other than using a 1,000,000W clean amp, to make the muff tone you get by yourself available in a loud band. it would devastate.

                    Get a second, bigger, cab, a 1000+ watt SS power amp, and put a fuzz in direct. Put it on an ABY box. Maximum Muff annihilation. That last sentence is my new punk band's name.

                      Awesome build man!!! You've just reminded me that I need to get on a GGG kit. Being that I am not a huge fuzz guy, it's probably best that I build my own for $50 than buy one for $150 dollars and never play it(true story, EQD Dream Crusher)

                          Probably. Indeed, I am bursting with a veritable cornucopia of great ideas, but there's no way I've figured this one out first...

                            my problem with my love for muff is this: ok you get lost in the mix, right? change some caps...bam, mid boost. ok, now you are KINDA present in the mix, with a middy sounding muff, so it doesnt sound like a muff anymore.

                            i need to create a way, other than using a 1,000,000W clean amp, to make the muff tone you get by yourself available in a loud band. it would devastate.




                            bigger amp + more speakers = always the answer!



                            Oh, and a middy preamp helps. (Marshall/Hiwatt/etc)
