Own the Muff that started it all — the Electro-Harmonix Triangle Big Muff fuzz pedal is a faithful re-creation of the original '69 Big Muff pedal. Electro-Harmonix founder Mike Matthews says, "this reissue absolutely nails that creamy, violin-like sustain and musical tone at a price a working musician can afford.” It's the same singing tone heard on early '70s recordings by Santana, Steve Howe, Robert Fripp, and many others, and now you can have it in your own rig without scouring the net for a vintage original. Complete with an LED status indicator, true bypass switching, and your choice of 9-volt battery or optional AC power, the Electro-Harmonix Triangle Big Muff reissue puts an iconic piece of guitar history on your pedalboard.
A faithful re-creation of the original late '60s circuit, the Electro-Harmonix Triangle Big Muff delivers a wide range of tones from its three simple controls. Guitarists at Music Experience especially love the sweep of its Tone knob, which basically blends between lowpassed and highpassed splits of your signal. Fully counterclockwise, it sounds dark and brooding — fully clockwise sounds thin and focused. Somewhere in between, your ideal fuzz tone awaits.
We have reissued the original Version 1 Big Muff and it’s dripping with vintage Electro-Harmonix DNA and tone. Dubbed the Triangle Big Muff because of the layout of its Volume, Sustain and Tone controls, this is the one that started it all. The new Triangle Big Muff is a faithful re-creation of the original circa 1969 circuit now housed in a pedalboard friendly, die-cast chassis. Electro-Harmonix founder, Mike Matthews, says: “The Big Muff Pi is the pedal we are best known for so I wanted to commemorate EHX’s 50th Anniversary (1968-2018) by re-releasing V1, the very first Big Muff. Original pedals are now selling for hundreds of dollars and this reissue absolutely nails that creamy, violin-like sustain and musical tone at a price a working musician can afford.” The Triangle Big Muff features the following nods to convenience: an LED to indicate effect status, true bypass switching and the option of being powered by a 9-volt AC adapter.
