I'm looking into buying a cheap fuzz and i'm able to get a electro harmonix big muff for quite a cheap price (second hand), is it good for Hendrix tones?


If not what is, my budget is around £40 and i'm willing to buy pre-owned.

Mike Matthews (EHX head honcho) said he walked into Hendrix's studio during the Electric Ladyland sessions and saw him cutting a load of guitar tracks with a prototype Big Muff that he'd given him. So, if it's good enough for Jimi himself...

Enjoy occasionally controversial ramblings related to guitars? I have a blog which meets these criteria.

Into a very midsy, slightly overdriven amp it's great for Hendrix. Into a cleaner amp with flat or scooped mids, not so much.

You can try an Octofuzz but thats way out of your budget. The big muff is pretty awesome so go for that, you can get a good range of sound out of it, especially for the nice fuzzed out Hendrix stuff

It can be, but it depends on the rest of your setup ultimately. I like it, but I also use it with my Dunlop Jimi wah.

Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

A fuzz face would be better imo.

Depends on what amp you are using. In front of a cranked plexi, yes. In front of a Jazz chorus, no.

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.

Fuzz Face through a Marshall is definitely the classic Hendrix sound, but I'm sure you could get away with using a Big Muff and sound great. The only thing is (from my experience) the Big Muff doesn't clean up with a decrease in guitar volume nearly as much as the Fuzz Face, which is kinda important for this type of thing.
