I bought this last weekend as a bit of an impulse buy but I must say I’m pretty impressed with the tones I can get out of it. I looked inside and seems well put together too. I love a good fuzz tone. Actually, it’ll do more than just fuzz. It truly does that violin like sustain as well. I’m still experimenting with placement of my compressor in relation to my OCD and Big Muff.

Cool.

Good time to be a muff fan, given all the options.

Why did you pick that one over the rams head?

Nostalgia I guess. It’s the original circuit from 1969. Plus, the store I bought it from had this one or the 1978 OP amp in stock. They didn’t have a rams head.

I like putting compression after fuzz, because when you roll back your guitar volume to clean it up, the compressor keeps the overall volume level up.

Congrats,

Man, all these Muff variants are totally out of control. On EHX I counted sixteen different Muff pedals they currently sell:

I suppose I am part of the problem. In the 90s I had the green Russian muff, then I had the NYC Pi muff, and now am rocking the mini orange op-amp version. But if I were starting out and shopping for a new Muff... I pity that fool.
