Now the Cliff fanboys may never think about their tone.

EDIT. The full name has always been the Big Muff Pi.

Also, having a look at the new 'Hi-tec' EHX website, they've got a whole host of new bass pedals soon to be released, including:

An XO version of the bass microsynth, a 'steel leather' bass expander, a 'bass blogger' distortion and a 'bass metaphors'compression/distortion/EQ thingy

Pretty keen to check these out!
#8

Just a few observations. I'm not saying any of this is true, just funny:

I bought a Micro POG. On the warranty card, it asks for suggestions for products. I suggested... everything.

The chassis of this bass Big Muff Pi is the exact same chassis as the Micro POG, with the same inputs and outputs in the same location. The main difference is the toggle switch where the LED was on the POG. The knobs are the same, except black.

So... a product I suggested using the chassis and knobs of a product I bought and used the warranty card to suggest.

Coincidence?

I THINK SO!

but fitz..... will it be good???

I'm gonna be totally Sinatra with you - I'm more curious about the MicroSynth. However, I've wanted a bass fuzz that's not $350 for some time now. This and the MXR 70's Fuzz look cool, but let's get to the point - will they even be in stores for us to play? Will the stores really take away some guitar pedals to put in bass ones?

I THINK SO!

EDIT: After listening to the El Grande Bass Fuzz from MXR... this Big Muff better be good. That's all I'll say.

The "Cliff" tone kept buggin' me. Thay always say "You need more muff!" or "You're too soft!". Now, finally, this muff will keep 'em quiet!

ive tries the full size microsynth (since the new one looks to be just an XO model) and i wasnt terribly impressed, the sounds were kinda cool but i couldnt really find anything to use it for, and got a gt6b instead (and sold that too haha)

What's the difference between a regular Big Muff and a Big Muff Pi?


Nothing. Big Muff is just a common name for it. Big Muff Pi is the proper name.

Whoah. I have to try it to make sure it isn't the same as a standard big muff now. But also does anyone know what the difference is between the big muff the metaphors thing and the blogger it says there all distortion but they don't have sound clips =/.

Kudos to MXR for realising that if they want to sell a product then good quality sound clips help loads. I don't need another bass distortion but I really want one of these now!
#38
It's pretty obvious how they did it: on standard Sovtek Big Muff Pi, there are four diodes that control compression and clipping. By removing the first pair of diodes, you get more volume, more low-end response, less compression, and slightly more sustain. Which essentially turns it into an excellent bass distortion. I did this to my Russian muff and it sounds great; I can almost guarantee that they used this circuitry on the new pedal.

Any bets this mod's cheaper than buying the Bass Muff?
