About EHX Big Muff
The EHX Big Muff is one of the most celebrated guitar pedals of all time. Their impressive range of pedals cover a wide range of fuzz and distortion sounds, making them a popular choice for guitarists across nearly all genres of music. The Electro Harmonix Big Muff set a standard with its recognisable sound, making it a hugely popular fuzz pedal. It was designed by Bob Myers and Mike Matthews in the late 1960s and was the first pedal marketed as a distortion pedal. Big Muff has since gone on to have many different versions including the Deluxe Big Muff. Its great sound has been used by artists such as Billy Corgan from The Smashing Pumpkins, David Gilmour from Pink Floyd and Kurt Cobain from Nirvana.
Known for its thunderous bass-heavy tone, the EHX Big Muff is one of the most celebrated guitar pedals of all time. Played by anyone and everyone over the last 50 years, the Big Muff always sounds contemporary and relevant. The legendary Big Muff Pi with its sustain control allows for dialing in the perfect sound. The volume control adjusts not only the volume but the overall character of the tone, meaning there is a lot fun to be had. Whether you are looking for a crushing distortion sound or a classic fuzz tone with long sustain, you'll find what you're looking for in the EHX Big Muff pedals. The most sought after Big Muff is the ‘Ram’s Head’ Big Muff Pi of the early 1970s which was famously used by David Gilmour on Comfortably Numb.
In the late 1970s, Electro Harmonix started using op-amps rather than transistors. These weren’t particularly desirable at the time but was used extensively by Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins. Electro Harmonix briefly relocated to Russia in the early 90s and operated under the name Sovtek. Sovtek Big Muffs (or Green Russians) were used by Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth and J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. Eventually the brand returned to New York, where the modern day Big Muff is made. These new pedals are most famously used by Jack White on all the White Stripes records.
