From Our Research Team:
Big Fuzz Tones for Bass!The Electro-Harmonix Bass Big Muff Pi draws on two classic Muffs that bassists have long used to create cutting fuzz tones. The Bass Big Muff Pi creates tones similar to the classic fuzz sounds of the battle-tank green Sovtek Big Muff Pi and the legendary Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi from the '70s - but optimized for beefy bottom-end that punches through anything. A direct out lets you feed unaffected signal to a second amp or effects chain and a Bass Boost/Dry toggle adds bottom to the Bass Big Muff Pi's sound.

Big Muff = big sound
by Bill from MarylandReally great pedal, does exactly what I expected and more! I was using an older guitar version of the Bg Muff and it just wasn't cutting the mustard. This pedal has far more functionality and sounds a... read more [+]wesome! For that Muse sound this is a must! close [-]

by russt from backwoods, virginiaafter having been let down by numerous fuzz pedals (by such big names as foss and midget tech) i gave this a shot. i was blown away upon plugging in and turing on! from slightly dirty to filthy fuzz, ... read more [+]this little green monster has you covered! less is more in the knobs department, so it's super easy to dial in your sound. and if you want more testicular fortitude in your lows, switch on the bass boost and go to town! definitely a must have if you're into playing stuff like kyuss or unida. close [-]

A BASS ESSENTIAL!
by Scott Frobel from Findlay, OHI use this pedal with a SansAmp Bass Driver DI and get amazing results. I love the many different types of distortion I can generate from the Big Muff. It makes my bass really stand out during solos... read more [+] AND helps me really cut through a mix without killing my deep bass tone. This is my favourite bass distortion pedal to date. It is solid and the control pots are of good quality all roll with a nice smooth, solid feel. I think this pedal is priced very well, also. I have always been impressed with E-H products and this pedal is another example of their quality and great tone! close [-]

Entirely too much fun
by Dave from Jackson, MSSimply a great pedal. I always keep the mini switch in dry mode. It's great in low blend and sustain settings, for adding overtones, or just fraying your tone a little. And of course it can complet... read more [+]ely fuzz out if that's what you want. It reacts beautifully with my all-tube amp, and if i switch to the drive channel on my head, it makes a throaty crunch that tapers off into the finer distortion of the muff. The sustain knob is also pretty foot-friendly for rolling your gain in a solo. I never use the normal or bass boost modes for bass, but I have run a guitar through it in normal mode and it sounded really good for anything that calls for an ultra-distorted tone. I have read comments by guitarist that say the normal mode does not sound exactly like the classic big muff, but I wouldn't know. Very good buy, sturdy build, good tone, and pedals don't get much cheaper than this. close [-]

The sound is incredible, and my favorite part is that my bottom end stays, I can make it push really hard and keep my low end? LOVE IT!
... read more [+] /> I personally like the switch in the dry position, so my regular tone comes through but I get that fuzz layer on top of it too.
I have found that if I fuzz out my tone too hard and I don't have that regular bass tone in there too, I get lost in the guitars and their tones.
But with this pedal sound layered in, it just adds the drive I want without compromising my clarity.
I've tried a couple other bass dist. boxes and they all sounded 'meh, whatever' but the moment I started messing with this one, I knew that was what I wanted. I guess this isn't really letting you know what the tone sounds like, but it's so easy to get what you want with it that you need to get one and find out for yourself. close [-]
