Last week or so, I watched “Fuzz: The Sound That Changed the World“. Really cool documentary on the fuzz pedals.. and about the people that build them. In that movie, there was a small clip of J. Mascis and his Big Muff collection, it was pretty awesome. I wish they had more footage of the collection and him talking about it, but here is a quick shot of his collection of older vintage Big Muffs.
As you can see, it’s a pretty hefty collection of older Rams Head, Triangle Muffs, etc. Pretty cool. Yesterday, someone tweeted about a Rams Head Big Muff on eBay, so I had to take a quick look. This, of course, led me to think how it stacks up with Big Muffs of today. I went to YouTube, and started my search, and what always seems the case, there is a Gearmanndude video that is exactly what I was looking for.
So how did you think it sounds? Definitely different.
