Yesterday I mentioned that I’ve been interested in the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker and found a great shootout video. Today I’m about to pull the trigger on this box. I’m really liking the wicker switch and the ability to pull the tone complete out. I also like that you can dial it in for convential Big Muff tones as well. I found you can this pedal for a great price at Amazon, only $73.98 plus $4.50 for shipping. It’s normally $89.25 at Musician’s Friend plus shipping.
Here is the official description of the pedal and the wicker switch:
The Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker is a guitar effects pedal that taps into the sonic power of the legendary Big Muff Pi, and creates new tonal possibilities at the flick of a switch—or two. Use the Wicker switch to open up 3 high-frequency filters for raspy, sustaining distortion with top-end bite, or flick on the Tone switch to bypass the tone control for unabated tonal slam. Want the original Big Muff sound? Just switch off the Wicker and turn on the Tone. The ability to create your own personal Big Muff sound is what truly makes this guitar pedal the Wicked Wicker.
Electro-Harmonix XO Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal Features:
- True bypass
- The Wicker switch opens up 3 high frequency filters providing a sustain that is raspy and defined
- The Tone switch completely removes the tone control, providing a devastating broadband Big Muff slam
- With the Wicker switch off and the Tone switch on, you have the original Big Muff Pi
- 9V battery included
- Optional power supply available (not included)
I also found a nice video by EHXCentral showing how the wicker and tone switches alter the tone of the Big Muff.
