Product Description

Merging two classic Muffs from the past, the Bass Big Muff from electro-harmonix gives you the unmistakeable grit and grind conjured from both the army green Sovtek Big Muff Pi and the NYC-built Big Muff Pi. And since it's for bass, electro-harmonix gave this bad boy a healthy dose of low-end love, making sure you'll rattle the rafters. The Bass Big Muff gives you a direct out to feed a separate amp or effects rig, and the Dry/Bass Boost switch lets you dial in just the right amount of bottom. Bassists, it's time to give the guitarists back their guitar-specific fuzz pedal and take your sound to new lows with the Bass Big Muff!

Very well build, simple and effective.
Jose Antunes Luzia Junior
The sustain knob cranked up is pretty much guaranteed to give you really intense distortion that makes any bass guitar sound gnarly.

This is my first ever distortion pedal and I'm loving the executable control the Big Muff Pi gives me.

I've been playing bass for a few years now, and the majority of that time was spent trying to find a bass fuzz/distortion that worked best for me. I've tried everything, Woolly Mammoth, Boss ODB3, Turbo Rat, Blowtorch, I even bought a Line 6 Pod XT Live to try and model the perfect distortion. None of them would cut it. THIS pedal is the ultimate. It's got great bottom end, and plenty of fuzz. My personal favorite setting is with the toggle on Dry, and the tone and sustain knobs all the way up! This allows the majority of your signal to pass through undisturbed while giving you great fuzz on the top. It's the closest thing you will ever find to bi-amping one clean and one dirty signal. Fans of Muse, The Faint, The Mars Volta..... Buy this Pedal

Everybody else has said why this is a great bass fuzz, and I don't have anything to add that hasn't been said already, but some people wonder about how it sounds on the guitar. It sounds more or less like your basic Muff tone on your guitar amp, but running it through your bass rig is another story. Fans of Stoner Metal who want a good Electric Wizard tone should give this a shot. This thing is killer for guitarists with a bass rig, even my surf guitar can pull off a respectable Weedeater sound.

I play guitar and bass and this pedal sounds great with both, this is the best you can get at this price.

I bought the bass big muff after figuring out Cliff Burton of Metallica used the Russian Big Muff. I tried that and it was amazing, so I figured they couldn't make it worse, only better. I was correct. I really like the distortion sound, and this pedal will not break. My complaint is that I use a musicman stingray which has one fat double pick up, making the sound really big and bassy. I love that, but it isn't beneficial to this pedal. I turn the EQ on my fender amp all the way up except for the treble i turn to twelve o clock, then on my bass I turn up the treble and midtone and turn the bass down to three o clock, effectively thinning out the sound yet keeping the horrible treble distortion sound away. It creates the perfect bass distortion. I plan on uploading a video of it on youtube under youtube.com/themanonthebass. Check it out. I recommend this pedal because it is awesome, and also because the sound of bass distortion is different than guitar distortion, and that's what makes this pedal unique.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Dirnt T. on February 21, 2009
this product is the answer bass guitarists have been looking for... Big Muff distortion with the option to run a mix of "dry" and "wet" signal. With the 3-way switch on "dry" you can get the Big Muff distortion that a lot of bass players have been using the Big Muff Pi for, but now you can get a clean signal in the mix to keep that deep backing tone behind your fuzz. The only thing that could have made this better would have been another knob to mix the "wet/dry" ratio but the fixed ratio built into the pedal is pretty good. I run this pedal behind my ODB-3 for a killer mix or one-at-a-time for added versatility in my distorted sounds.

This is a great pedal. After doing weeks of research, I was about to pick up the russian muff, but this pedal popped onto the market.
I gotta say the bottom end is intense, while still giving a pretty defined muff sound. It's about as close to a bi-amped type sound as I've seen (think Muse).
Only downside is like any bass effect pedal, it gets a tad lost in the mix of a band, but stands out nicely on solos, or parts of the songs more focused on bass. This is a tight sounding effect too, it starts and stops when you mute, and doesn't spill over sounding all loose and undefined. There is a surprising range in this pedal, anything from a deep bass boost type sound to a treble focused distortion.

I use it on an active Laguna bass with Bartolini pickups, Ashdown 4x10 amp and sounds great.

After trying several bass distortion pedals, I have finally found the best one for me. The range of sounds, ease of use, and overall quality are unmatched. Look no further.

This pedal provides pretty good overall tone, much better than other bass overdrive/distortion pedals I have used/tried in the past. The construction is pretty durable so I don't have to worry about transport from gig to gig. So far it is well worth it.
