For over 40 years, guitarists have plugged into the Big Muff Pi for the grit and violin-like sustain it imparts to your tone. It's one of the most instantly recognizable sounds, famously heard on classic tracks by everyone from Jimi to Mudhoney and beyond. If you haven't been initiated into the cult of the Big Muff Pi, the Deluxe Big Muff Pi is an excellent place to start, as it packs all the sonic fury of the original, with a ton of extra control for the tweaky tone freak in you.Tone-shaping tools for added flexibility
On top of the tried-and-true Big Muff tone, the Deluxe Big Muff Pi is brimming over with tone-shaping tools. New on this incarnation is a footswitchable Midrange section, complete with a variable center frequency and boost/cut knobs. This allows you to focus the mids along with kicking them in anytime you need a little more "oomph" to cut through the mix. With the traditional Big Muff, chords could get a little mushy (which was part of the charm!), especially at high gain settings. The addition of an adjustable Attack control compensates for this, letting each note be heard. The noise gate keeps hum and buzz at bay while keeping your tone intact. Rounding out the new controls is a bass boost switch to thicken up the low end. No matter how you set your Muff, the Deluxe Big Muff Pi lets you shape your sound to your exact liking.Expression pedal input for real-time mid sweeps
All of the tone-shaping power built into this incarnation of the Big Muff is awesome, but what really makes the Deluxe Big Muff Pi a step above a traditional Muff is the expression pedal input.
