I'm not a great tapper in terms of moving around a lot, but i can get a very clear tapping sound out of my boss ds-1 (which will be replaced), and even decent with my tubescreamer but cant get anything out of the big muff...it sounds as if the tone is getting sucked in and compressed like crazy and has no harmonics....I get this dead type sucked in sound sometimes when i play two bass notes together....any suggestions? I thought it might be my compressor, but it doesnt make a difference, if anything it helps. I'm prob gettin a crunch box to replace any high gain needs, but im curious

Nice thread title.

Other than that, I have no reasonable suggestions for you, sorry.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

in fairness, the big muff isn't intended for that kind of thing at all. it does big, nasty, pumping, compressed, filthy fuzz, not a "tapping" tone at all. your just using the wrong pedal for the job.

Isn't tapping more affiliated with gain/boost, whereas a fuzz is a dist/compression? Maybe if it was a metal muff.... Anyhow, I'm not much of a tapper.

Don't be sad, I know you will.

The muff is a very compressed, smooth fuzz. Tapping isn't going to work well with it.
