The Big Muff has achieved legendary status in some circles but it was always a big cumbersome box underfoot, so Electro-Harmonix has fitted the circuitry into a smaller case.
EHX doesn’t call it a fuzzbox but a distortion/sustainer, and there’s certainly bags of both distortion and sustain here. There’s plenty of gain to drive an amp hard, but the key control is the tone knob, with a wide range that will take you from bright edgy fuzz to creamy-smooth liquid sustain and all stations in-between. It’s a classic Big Muff, but in a more manageable form. What’s not to like?
PROS: Price. Versatile range of tones. Compact size.
CONS: Four screws for battery access.
