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:
  • USA Big Muff Pi "made in NYC original"
  • 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.

Really Cool !

Just got this and now trying to decide what to take off my pedal board in order to add this one on.... or may just get a new board , I Love this in so many ways I can get a lot of sound from the Big Muff. It's fantastic

The Real Deal

This pedal right here? Is a must have. The tone knob is a sort of a high pass filter but a methodically honed one... And the sustain knob is to be coveted. What I also like is that the gain stage/volume control isn't extremely hot, so as to give whatever amp one is running headroom to add it's flavor. This thing is right in the pocket. The tones are extraordinary and big. You cannot beat them without a cab and a mic, and even then, I hope you're a pro engineer. I can't say enough about this thing. It's super fuzzy without being lost in a mix. And it's a warm fuzz, too. It's not harsh like the Boss Overdrive or like the emulators in Guitar Rig or Amplitube.

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.

Brought Back Memories.

Just Awesome!

I am now a rock god....

Three knobs, huge sound - you can't emulate this pedal digitally. It's got the same circuit as the original from the sixties. And it says "Made in NYC, USA" on the front - it doesn't get cooler than that. This is the real thing. You need it now.

Sweetwater Advice

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.

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.

Matt Emick

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