Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi Bass Fuzz Stompbox Effect at a Glance:
  • Blend dial lets you fuzz up your bass, without killing your dynamics

  • The output options you need for studio and stage alike
Blend dial lets you fuzz up your bass, without killing your dynamics

Get the massive bass fuzz tone you want, without sacrificing the dynamics and definition you can't afford to lose, with the Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi. That's because Electro-Harmonix added a long-requested blend control to the classic Bass Big Muff Pi, which lets you mix dry signal back in with its distortion effect.

Crossover controls provide everything you need to sculpt the perfect bass fuzz

No one saw the Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi's crossover controls coming. The variable lowpass filter lets you round off the dry low-frequency signal, freeing up space for high-frequency fuzz. The variable highpass filter, on the other hand, pulls lows out of the fuzz, removing the mud from your fuzz tone. And to top it all off, the entire crossover section on the electro-harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi is footswitchable, allowing you to dramatically shift your tone in real time.

The output options you need for studio and stage alike

When Electro-Harmonix built the Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi, they had a pretty good idea that serious bass players like you would want to use this stompbox both live onstage and in the recording studio. That's why they hooked it up with three separate outputs. The parallel 1/4" output lets you send just your dry signal back to your monitor or onstage amplifier. On the other side of the Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi, you'll find both a standard 1/4" output for your main amp and a balanced XLR out for running direct to the PA or into a recording interface.

Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi Bass Fuzz Stompbox Effect Features:
  • A awesome version of ehx's classic bass fuzz effect updated to meet the demands of modern bass players
  • Switchable 0dB/-10dB input provides compatibility with both passive and active pickups
  • Blend control lets you mix the direct and distorted signal to taste
  • Take complete control of your output signal and sound with three outputs: a 1/4" effect out, a 1/4" direct (buffered dry) out, and an XLR DI out
  • Sculpt your sound with the foot-switchable crossover section, featuring a variable lowpass filter on the dry signal and a variable highpass filter on the distorted signal
  • Control unwanted noise at any level with the built-in noise gate
Get the bass fuzz you've always wanted with an Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi!

Fantastic Bass distortion

A few years back, I bought a guitar big muff to use with my bass. I fell in love with the muff tone, my only complaint being a lot of low end was lost to the point playing notes on the low e string sounded like mud. When I Saw EHX was making a deluxe muff for bass, I saw the opportunity to upgrade. And man, I was blown away. Since this is tailored to bass, none of my low end was lost, resulting in a great growling low end distortion. This pedal is leaps and bounds above the old pedal I had. Some of my favorite features include the blend knob, which allows you to dial in to exactly what ratio of clean and distorted signal you want. There is also a noise gate, which eliminates any background buzz. Other features include a toggle that supposedly makes the pedal more friendly to active pickups (I only have passive basses, so only repeating what it says on the box), and "crossover" filters, which can lead to more varied effects to the tone. Bottom line is this is an incredible distortion pedal for anyone who loves the classic muff sound! No bottom end lost, no background buzz. Great product

Great pedal!

This pedal is a pleasure to use. Not only can I get a great big muff fuzz sound but with the gate and blend knobs it offers great control over the effect. I especially like the crossover controls. It's like having a second effect option built in. I can dial in extra bass (what!?) or using the high pass get a really interesting tingy low fi effect. I've only had it a few days but I keep on coming up with new ways to experiment with it. It goes beyond what I thought I would be able to do with a single pedal. Switching the crossover effect on doesn't decrease the sound so I have the option of having a two stage distortion series if needed. I can also make the two settings drastically different. If you are a fan of the bass big muff don't hesitate to try this one out. It is well worth your time.

Sweetwater Advice

Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi

Factor in the DI output, variable-blend control, and the crossover's brilliantly employed footswitching, and it really feels like a no-brainer. The amount of gain on tap is noticeably less than the classic Russian Big Muff that ruled the '80s and '90s, but when you consider its great tone, endless tweakability, and stage-ready connection options, this pedal is the Big Muff many bassists have been waiting for....
