BIG MUFFS! These tones are a sampler of the Big Muff pack that i’ll be releasing very soon: A collection of 40+ profiles using three different vintage and boutique big muffs, created using a variety of guitars with Muff only options, plus a a collection of different overdrives to add flavour, power and intensity to the tones.

The two in this sampler are a couple of my faves:

The 1970’s V4 Big Muff Pi, one of the original Op Amp variations of the pedal that was apparently the model that Billy Corgan used for most of Smashing Pumpkins ‘Siames Dream’ and ‘Pisces Iscariot’ albums.

The second is a slightly more modern Black Russian Big Muff, released between the late 90’s into the 2000’s. These have an absolutely unreal low end that I find is just as useful for bass as it is for guitar, I also find them way more open and detailed than the more modern Big Muffs. For this tone, I ran a Mesa Boogie Flux Drive in front of it to drive the gain even harder while tightening up the lows and mids.

All the pedals are running through a Marshall JCM800 and Orange 4x12 miked up with a Royer R121 and Shure SM57 through Great River Preamps.

Please let me know what you think!
