Fuzz lovers have gravitated toward the Big Muff for over four decades. It's been heard on countless records, and is renowned for its gnarly edge and nearly endless sustain. The electro-harmonix Deluxe Big Muff Pi fuzz pedal re-imagines this classic, packing it full of everything that made the original so awesome while adding new features to take the classic to new heights. Leading the charge of add-ons is a footswitchable Mids section, letting you instantly cut through the mix. Better yet, the Mids section is sweepable via an expression pedal, so you can conjure fuzzy wah-style sounds with ease. The Deluxe Big Muff Pi is an incredibly flexible fuzz!
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.
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.
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. It gives you control over the mids, effectively turning the Deluxe Big Muff Pi into the meanest wah you've ever heard. And take it from the tone gurus at Music Experience, the expression pedal takes one of our favorite fuzzes to a whole new level.
