Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Fuzz Pedal
In Stock!

Distortion made famous by Jimi Hendrix, Santana, and More!

The Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi is the pedal that started it all. The Big Muff Pi is the distortion pedal countless musicians, including Hendrix and Santana, relied on for its rich, creamy, violin-like sustain. A timeless piece, the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi has been defining the sound of rock guitar for the past 30 years.

Like the legendary Big Muff Pi of the '70s, the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi reissue has three controls that let the player dial in the finest harmonic distortion/sustain ever produced. The Big Muff Pi's Volume control adjusts the output level. The Sustain control optimizes the long sustain with just the right amount of harmonic distortion, and the Big Muff Pi's Tone control provides a range of sounds, from warm bass to crisp treble. From Pink Floyd to the Chemical Brothers to Korn, everyone wants a piece of the Pi!

Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Features:
  • Volume control
  • Sustain control
  • Tone control

From the legendary riffs of Jimi Hendrix and George Clinton to the new-school licks of Slipknot and Korn, musicians have relied on Electro-Harmonix since the late '60s. Whether you crave the sustaining overdrive of the Big Muff Pi or the warm spring reverb of the hot new Holy Grail, Electro-Harmonix has a stompbox with your name on it.

EH Big Muff

I was used to using the modeled version on my Boss multi efx pedal. But this just blows it away. These multi efx processors do not do this pedal any justice. Smooth leads, grungy rythem, can be smooth. The tone control works really well. It is the most wide ranged tone control ive seen. Get this!! You wont regret it.

Exactly what I was looking for

I've tried every pedal that I could get my hands on and this one is DEAD ON what I've been looking for. The combination of the distortion and the sustain is superb. I love it.

Great fuzz pedal!

This really is a great sounding pedal. You can get lots of different sounds out of it, including a ton of sustain. I couldn't believe how long my Les Paul's notes would ring out. It's defiantly a keeper that will get lots of use. I can see why so many big name players have used one.

One of the best pedals ever

I bought this pedal not too long ago because I had been wanting one for quite a while. Now I have it, and let me say, I love it! I use it as one of my primary sources for fuzz/distortion, and it is definitely one of the best pedals ever made in my opinion, and I don't plan on getting rid of it any time soon. You can't beat this pedal, you just can't.

Sweetwater Advice

Nate Edwards

When you see "electro-harmonix" on a pedal, you know what you're getting - classic tone that's been tested for decades onstage and on countless records, and a sound that nobody else has been able to copy. The Big Muff is no exception, and what's more, it's American made. If you're a serious guitarist or bassist and want a classic fuzz distortion in your arsenal, stop shopping around and check this one out.

Chris McCown

I put this pedal in front of a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe on the clean channel, and PRESTO - instant tonal gratification. The Big Muff Pi is a simple yet effective pedal that allows you to dial in just a little bit of grit, all the way through complete '70s fuzz! It's a classic pedal that you have most likely heard on recordings without even realizing it. It's also built like a tank - no need to worry about pampering this pedal.

Matt Emick

Two words: Fuzz Bass!! The Big Muff Pi is one of my favorite pedals for getting a thick, monstrous fuzz bass tone.
