The Boss/Roland SpaceEcho tape echo pedal has a feature that accelerates the delay time so the pedal whirls to a highpitched sound; I imagine that plus some fuzz, and a filter/wah would get you that...

One of the Strokes' guitarists (I think Albert) uses the Jekyll and Hyde pedal. It's a distortion and overdrive pedal, and I believe the overdrive is a Tubescreamer clone.

Any experience with the DLS Versa Vibe or Fulltone Deja Vibe 2?

Hmm... this is strange... how are you powering your Big Muff? If by battery, I would try a new battery (however I don't think that's the problem).
