So, I'm currently looking for a Fuzz pedal.
I'm keeping my budget lower then normal as I want a nice simple pedal that will sound great.

I have two options:
EHX Double Muff
EHX Big Muff Pi

Now, I really like the David Gilmour fuzz tone [which was a Fuzz Face for Animals + DSOTM, but he used Big Muffs afterwards], so that's what I'm aiming for.

The Big Muff Pi seems like a great choice, but I'm worried it won't sound too good for rhythm.

The Double Muff 'Single' switch is more or less an OD, which is great as it is. The Double Muff switch is meant to have more cream and fuzz to it, but from videos I've seen it may not do the Gilmour fuzz I want.
But it is £20 cheaper.

I'm undecided.
Which one would sound be better and be better value?
I can't try them out first hand, so that adds to my problem.

No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

I have a double muff but never use it because it's really really noisy. On single muff mode the tone is OK but a bit fizzy in the high end but if you turn it up more than about half way it gets so much buzzing in the background that it overwhelms everything and makes it unusable. In double muff mode you can dial out some of the noise and still get a solid fuzz tone but then it's not the fuzz tone you would be after.

That's quite useful.
So I should just get the Big Muff Pi.

Get the Big Muff with Tone Wicker. It can still sound like the original Muff, but with the switches you can give it a clearer sound to stop it mudding up.

Yeah, I was aiming to get that.
But some reviews said the tone wicker doesn't really do much. And it is a bit more expensive.
But I do like the blue/green colour

Well I got one recently and trust me, it makes a difference. You get way more high end but without it becoming gritty and buzzy. And it's louder

I think I'll aim for that.
But my gear is already treble heavy as it is. Nevertheless, I'll think it's what I'll get.

^the big box keeps it running cool which is good if you are using it for hrs at a time.

The Tone Wicker one is the same size as the LBM, fits nicely in a pedal board
