    I was quite pleased with this one when I tried it out at my local shop. I own their Highway 77 distortion with the "top-sider" mod and it is now the basis of my main sound.

    Unfortunately, video demos are nearly non-existent.

    I love this thing. It's simple and it gets its point across very very well...

    Muff Fuzzes are more overdrives than fuzzboxes but sound great nonetheless. What year is yours?

    With a clean signal it's definitely more OD crunch than wooly fuzz, but if there's already dirt happening on the amp then it can sound pretty MUFFish. I use it to boost a Tube Screamer into a clean amp and the tone is tremendous.
    I bought mine new in 1983, so I guess it's from the late 70s/early 80s stable of EH stuff.

    Just curious and checked the pot. 1980.
    All of the old EH pedals have date codes on the pots like this...

    137##**
    ## = year
    ** = week

    Hm, yesterday i went out after reading the previous post by Ermghoti on the MI Audio NEO fuzz to give it a try, and i have found a winner, its $200 but this is my next pedal without a doubt. I think its right up your ally aswell Jonesy, black keys tonez all over, and its Aussie :D MI Audio keep impressing me more and more

    After searching around and listening to quite a few video clips I picked up a EHX Little Big Muff in like new condition with box and paperwork for $50. I think it is going to give me all the Fuzz Tones I have been looking for. Just bought it tonight so I should have it sometime next week and will try and make a video when I get time ;)

    I saw a video demo of a Mid-Fi Glitch Computer fuzz pedal. They are hard to find, but sound like the "real deal". I'm going to try to get my hands on one.:thumb:

    Good choice Jonesy. Dan uses a muff for most of his fuzz. He also runs a booster for solos and pushing it a bit harder.

    I have to say my fox rox hot silicon is the best out of any of the ones I have had, for traditional fuzz face stuff. The large beaver is the best muff clone out of any of the muffs I have had, hands down bar none.

    I keep trying different ones I see at the GC and SA... no reason for me to leave my Dano French Toast.

    I roll the tone back just a touch on my amp and there's no noise to it at all and it's got a great classic Fuzz sound, flip the octave switch for even more cool tones. Best $30 I've spent on anything guitar related.

    Hey, I just got my EHX Lil' Big Muff pedal in the mail yesterday and I have to say that I am really happy with it. I used it for about 45 mins last night and 30 mins this morning. It gives me all the Black Keys Fuzz Tones that I wanted and more. When I get some time I plan on making a video and I will post it here. ;)
