GR-BIGMUFF

Online

Back by overwhelming demand... in a mini package! The cult classic Green Russian Big Muff first shook the ground in the mid-1990s. Since then it has been heralded by guitarists and bassists for its devastating low-end and unique sludge and sizzle. The Green Russian Big Muff creates a huge tone that is all its own, but is undeniably Big Muff.

This green russian big muff will turn the clean channel of your amp into a thick wall of glorious fuzz. The sustain knob has a lot of range throughout the dial, and plenty of volume on tap. I just hope this pedal lasts, EHX doesn't have the best reputation, time will tell.

If you want some earlier White Stripes and Black Keys type tones this is the pedal. Only problem is its a tad bit noisy (hiss) so you'll want to run a noise suppressor... but not past 2 o'clock because then your tone starts to suck, but anything under 12' oclock it doesnt do anything! I'm not a hardcore muff guy but I've owned/traded/played a lot of them. This is the classic one! Growing up I had the big muff pi but it was big and clunky and sounded kind of like it needed a splash of salt, the germanium one was nice, the one wicker ones were meh, all the reissues and clones. A lot of dudes talk about "the vintage green big muff" that you'd used to be able to find in pawn shops in the late 90s... I think this is exactly that same sound... and for the price and footprint? What a steal. Definitely a 10/10 home run out of the park.

Bought this pedal after months of searching for a particular sound online. Got it home and plugged my danelectro hodad bass into it, brilliant. Loving the bottom end and tonal options. Can't beat this pedal on bass for the price. Glad I pulled the trigger and brought this one home..

I've compared this pedal side by side with my original Sovtek Green Russian Muff, and it hits the nail right on the head. The best part is that it does it for much cheaper than all the boutique clones out there.

Watch out clones. There's a new sheriff in town. I use this pedal on bass to fulfilled my stoner/doom tone needs. This pedal does not do subtle.
