Yesterday @adiibrahim asked what was better.. the Russian Big Muff Pi or the US Big Muffs? I first have to say, that there shouldn’t be a ‘better’ per se, but one might have the tone more suitable to your style or the tone you’re looking for. They’re different pedals with a different vibes. For me, I’m most familiar with the Russian Big Muff – Jimmy, the EffectsBay.com demo-machine uses the Russian Big Muff so I’ve heard that pedal plenty in the practice space.
I’ve contemplated purchasing a Big Muff many times, and almost pulled the trigger on the Big Muff w/Tone Wicker but still haven’t decided. I do have to say, that I do like the way the Russian Big Muff sounds, so it thought I would give it a post today.
I found this interesting video by GearWire…. and what appears to be the largest guitar in the world.
This pedal is no longer in production and are still available on eBay, etc. Check out PedalNerd.com for deals on the Electro-Harmonix Russian Big Muff Pi.
