  • What Big Muff am I looking for?

    I've gone through a couple of muffs and similar fuzzes. I've mainly had the EXH Muff w/ Tone Wicker and the Little Big Muff. Both are fine, but I want something a little less smooth and a little more distinct and less smooshy. (A little less violin-ish).

    My first thought was a Russian clone of some sort and I really like the Mojo Hand Colossus. Am I going in the right direction or do I just not want a Big Muff?


    Other fuzzes I currently own:

    Basic Audio Spooky Tooth

    Basic Audio Zippy

    Earthquaker Bit Commander

    Joyo Voodoo Octave

    EHX Little Big Muff


    Any input would be appreciated!

    Maybe the Swollen Pickle? They can sound pretty ragged, and there's a knob for compression, so you can make it as unsquishy as you want.

      Since you already have 2 Basic Audio pedals (and I'm guessing you like them), I would suggest the Tri/Ram muff. I picked one up used last month and it's really good. You can roll the Mids knob to your liking to get more muff meets overdrive/distortion tones.

    I like both suggestions. Are the Triangle and Ram's Head muffs generally regarded as being "less smooth" than a modern Big Muff?

      The Triangle is a little less smooth and a bit more raspy

      I've never really liked the IC muff.

    I like what I hear from Russian style muffs. Am I missing something there? The Stomp Under Foot and the Wren and Cuff stuff sounds pretty good, as does the aforementioned Mojo Hand Colossus.

      I listened to a video for the Mojo Hand BMP-1 (russian muff clone) and thought it was "the one" to sate my appetite for MUFFY GOODNESS. I'll get it in a few days!
