I have a Russian big muff which although great, does sometimes sound a bit transistory. As I have started playing in a band again and these are quite cheap, I thought I’d get one just for fun.
How does it sound?
WOW – this is amazing! With the tone and sustain at about 1/3 and the volume at 1/2 it dirties things up beautifully and makes my bass sound huge! I’m using it on a cover of the Beatles tune “Lady Madonna” and it’s great. Granted everyone else in the band rolls their eyes whenever I hit the pedal and shout big muff but I love it. I would say it sounds significantly better than the Russian one, and has the added advantage of being much smaller on the pedalboard.
Keep or sell?
