ok this is really bugging me-my big muff pi seems to cut out when i play notes of a low frequency-mostly under a low A. This is really bugging-its like it goes quiet for 1 second, every 6-7 secs.

Anyone else get this? Please tell me so i can flog it on Ebay and get a Bass Balls or something

Try messing around with the tone knob on the Pi (I only ever use a guitar through mine, but I would guess that would have some effect since the tone is basically the treble control).

Doesn't happen to me. I've never had a problem with my Muff. Check your cables, and make sure the AC plug is in all of the way.

You can always mod it so that it will work better for bass. Easy mod too.

are you using a USA Big Muff or a Russian Big Muff? The Russian ones respond better to bass frequencies but you could mod a USA one to do it as has been said. Also make sure your battery isnt dying, or that youre getting enough jouice out of the outlet its plugged into.

I use an american one for my bass, and it works fine. The lowest I play on it though is a low B. Do you mean a low a on the e string? or are you down-tuned or something?

never encountered that problem before, although the lowest note my muff has to cope with is a low B. maybe it's just that the note is too low, cause muffs are meant to be guitar pedals, maybe the frequency of the note is just so low that the capacitors discharge before they charge fully? i'm not too sure, that's just a guess, but i think it has something to do with the extra low notes.
