In all seriousness though, I've gotten another NYC yesterday to try the supa tonebender thing of lifting diodes and coupling cap.

I never knew what to do with a fuzz and how to use it (?!?!?!_).

Had a few in the past, but not for long.

A fuzz has no place in my pedal board .. ever.

Has anyone else played a Muff Diver in person? The demos online kinda suck. You've go to hear, or rather feel, it in your own rig to really appreciate it. Just huge and vocal and rich, but clear and open. Like a great PAF or an old Super Bass. It's got that bold and detailed sound.

I bought mine on a whim right before the builder went missing and I didn't expect to ever get it. Then it showed up one day unexpectedly and changed my life. Wish I could send it out to get passed around to all of you, and also get it cloned. When I bought it, the builder told me the big transistors had a big part to do with the big sound, for what that's worth.

I have a pre-production version 2 VFE Fiery Red Horse. Based on the triangle Muff but extremely versatile, has germanium and silicon diodes that can be blended. Love it. Very tight sounding with next to no extraneous noise. Way more than the original concept of a Big Muff Pi.

I also have an EHX Nano Big Muff Pi. My first actual EHX Big Muff, not sure how it fits within the overall variability of Big Muff tones but it’s cool. More wild and not as tight as the Red Horse but fun nevertheless.

My two Pi versions compliment each other.

I'm thinking of doing a DIY muff. Which one for classic rock and blues if I already have a Ge Fuzz Face? I don't want any overlap in sound.
Needs to work with a SSS Strat and a PAF-clone LP into a 2204 and a tweed.
