Bass Big Muff Pi Distortion/Sustainer
The Prodigy reborn with underworld instincts comes to life wielding the drive of the original classic Big Muff Pi and the earthy support of a bass tailored design with no loss of low end. This is the pedal that bass players who loved the Big Muff sound have been waiting for.
The volume knob sets the output level of the distortion. When the toggle switch is set to DRY, the volume knob has no effect on the output level of your original bass.
Provides a range of sounds from high treble to deep bass. The overall tone filter frequencies were carefully chosen to enhance your bass guitar.
As in the original Big Muff Pi, adjusts the amount of sustain and distortion.
Bass boost / norm / dry toggle switch
This is a 3 position toggle switch that allows you to choose three distinctly different sounds. In Bass Boost mode, the top position, a bass frequency boost is added to the distortion. It is most effective when the Tone knob is set to the upper or treble half of its rotation. In Norm mode, the middle position, you have the pure tone of the classic Big Muff Pi. In Dry mode, the bottom position, the original dry signal from your instrument is mixed with the output of the distortion circuit. The level of the Dry signal is constant and will not change as you turn the Volume knob up or down. This allows you to set the level of the distortion effect against your dry signal.

The sustain knob cranked up is pretty much guaranteed to give you really intense distortion that makes any bass guitar sound gnarly.
I like to use the "dry" setting because it mixes my clean bass signal with the distorted one, which adds a little bit of definition. This is important when you're playing with a distorted tone, because often distortion can turn fast bass-playing into a muddy mess.
My only complaint would be that the "dry" setting only allows you to control the volume of the distorted signal - the clean signal runs through at its original volume, unmodified. So if you're going to switch between this pedal on dry and a clean setup, you'll need either a limiter or a clean boost pedal to make up for the volume change when the pedal is off.
The Big Muff for bass gives you so many options and possibilities that I actually found myself turning knobs crazy. There is a switch that gives you 3 options Dry, Normal and Bass Boost. Personally I loved the Dry option with the Volume Knob at 9, the Tone and Sustain knobs at 12.
Later I tried it along with the tremendous and underrated THE MOLE bass booster...and man....the house this time actually moved a couple of inches to the left....(The wife wasn't that happy at all ;-)
All I can tell that if you are looking for a GREAT bass fuzz with a ton of conbinations and sounds....well stop your search...the EHX Bass Big Muff it's the next BIG THING.
....if you need a little more substance to make up your mind about this excellent effect let me tell you this: It felt at some moment that Cliff Burton's Ghost was in the house.....what a cool feeling!!!!
PD. REVIEWING AN EFFECT PEDAL WITH WORDS IT'S WEIRD AND EXTREMELY DIFFICULT.

The Muff Pedal has a great sounding distortion and 3 simple knobs: Volume, Tone and Sustain(Gain).
But what make the Electro Harmonix Bass Big Muff so unique and affective is that it has a switch, which can choose between 3 amazing modes: "Norm"(For a great sounding standard bass distortion), "Bassboost"(Which sends a strong signal to cause the distortion to become very powerful) and my favourite "Dry"(Which is the Norm distortion that has a clean sound going through it. It it very unique and great sounding, as it highlights what the bass is playing. This means it is hard to get drowned out by other instruments such as the drums and guitar, so it perfect for using whilst jamming in a band or on stage).
I’ve tried it on guitar too and sounds fantastic.
Highly recommended if you are looking for this type of sound.
I am also very pleased with the delivery, I ordered it on free delivery and it originally said it would come on the Thursday, after ordering it on a Friday, but instead it came 2 days later (on Sunday morning)!
Overall, I am very pleased, it feels and looks very durable.
Worth the money 100%
