implying the Russian Muff is ****ty




Yes, the TS9 would work and would serve to balance out the lack of mids that the Muff has. David Gilmour actually used a Big Muff Pi, so you're somewhat close...

I'd just play with it until you get something close, but I'd set sustain around half, tone less than half and level to taste.

Doesn't matter, he's not boosting the amp, he's boosting the solid state pedal.

solid state


How does THAT matter?

He just wants to know if it'd be good as a boost.

And i think it would be.

A good amp is obviously useful though. :P

You forget, I'm a transistorfag. I like SS gear. I'm just pointing out that all that's being boosted is a pedal, and not the front end of an amp... not that there aren't solidstate amps that are designed to handle boosting them.

Way to fail hard - I'm impressed.
TS, it would work fine. Many people boost muffs with TSs and some people actually run muffs into the TS to get rid of the mid scoop.

that still doesn't mean the amp isn't the problem (if he has a cheap practice amp for example). So until we know what amp the threadstarter has we won't know whether he could get a better version of the sound he was looking for by getting a better amp than he would by boosting his pedal with another pedal.

Fender Jazzmaster/Yamaha SG1000
Boss TU-3, DS-2, CS-3, EHX small stone, Danelectro delay
Laney VC30-112 with G12H30 speaker, or Session Rockette 30 for smaller gigs
Elixir Nanoweb 11-49 strings, Dunlop Jazz III XL picks
Shure SM57 mic in front of the amp
