Interesting, I hear about this issue a lot with fuzz pedals and buffers, what exactly creates the issue and why don't other pedals have it? And I use a Big Muff, is this as tempermental as other fuzz pedals?
In a nutshell, a Fuzz Face is based on a crude circuit with a very low input impedance.
A Big Muff includes twice more transistors, a 8 times higher input impedance and creates a much thicker/gainier/more compressed sound so it's less temperamental.
