Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker Distortion/Sustainer
The Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker taps into the sonic power of the legendary Big Muff Pi, but creates new tonal possibilities at the flick of a switch -- or two. Use the Wicker switch to open up three high-frequency filters for raspy, sustaining distortion with top-end bite, or flick on the Tone switch to bypass the tone control for unabated tonal slam. Want the original Big Muff sound? Just switch off the Wicker and turn on the Tone. The ability to create your own personal Big Muff sound is what truly makes this the Wicked Wicker.
The volume knob sets the overall output level of the effect.
The Tone knob allows the musician to dial in just the right setting between deep bass and high treble.
As in the original Big Muff Pi, adjusts the amount of sustain and distortion.
Tone & wicker switches
Tone Switch - The Tone switch allows the user to activate the Tone knob or to completely bypass the tone circuitry. When the Tone switch is set to ON, the Tone knob is active, just like a standard Big Muff. When the Tone switch is set to OFF, the Tone knob and all of its circuitry is bypassed. This setting yields a totally new Muff distortion with a powerful drive and uncolored gain. High output with attitude. Please Note: When the Tone switch is set to OFF, turning the Tone knob will produce no change to your sound. In addition, it is normal for the output volume of your Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker to increase when moving the Tone switch from ON to OFF. Status LED - When the LED is lit; the BMPTW effect is active. When the LED is off, the BMPTW is in True Bypass mode. The Footswitch toggles between effect and bypass modes.
Wicker Switch - Activate Wicker mode by flipping the Wicker switch up to the ON position where the high frequency bandwidth is opened up for a bright and clear top end. Set the Wicker switch to OFF to obtain the classic Big Muff Pi sound.
The Big Muff with Tone Wicker taps into the sonic power of the legendary Big Muff Pi to create new tonal possibilities at the flick of a switch. Create your personal Big Muff by opening up the top end or you can bypass the tone control for a gutsy distortion that truly makes this the Wicked Wicker.

I found that despite already having an overdrive and a distortion, that this fuzz was the missing link on my board. I can jam out to some Arctic Monkeys, and sound just like the recording.
I haven't played too much with the "wicker" setting, but I can tell without added adjusting it does add some white noise. For the price tag, though, the versatility, plus having doorway into the fuzz world, makes it a winner.
I play through a Peavy Classic 30 using a PRS Semi Hollow, Fender Strat(single coils), and Fender Jaguar with P90's. This pedal responds and colors the unique tone of each of my guitars. I just can't say enough good things about it! I am especially fond of decreasing the tone knob on the guitar and the tone knob on the pedal. It gives a smooth but powerful growl sound. Very QOTSA like.
This was the added texture that I needed for my pedal board.
Very solid, as it is very obviously built to step on.
I can't comment on the battery life, as I plug in all my pedals when using them, anyway.
Never owning a regular Muff, I can't compare this one to the Big Muff Pi without the wicker. I got this one because I guessed the extra switches would provide for a greater range of sounds. As this is smaller than the regular Muff, I feared that it may not have as deep a fuzz as the other, but I have no complaints about it. And the size makes saving space easier.
I really like the tone and aggressive drive of the big muff and the Tone and wicker switches are nice although I find that with the Wicker opened up/ON the noise level gets marginally too high; so long as you're playing hard and loud it's not really an issue. This pedal isn't designed to be quiet when you're not playing so don't be fooled there, it is normal for it to make some noise when there's not guitar input/strumming. The bypass on the other hand seems to be clean as advertised.
I'll be keeping the pedal and like it but the lack of QA from my proudly made in America fuzz pedal was a bit of a let down; fortunately I found the problem and fixed it myself to avoid a return.
