Any EHX English muff'n users out there? I just picked one up tonight an it's pretty killer. It's quite a versatile pedal, what with it being a preamp and all. How do you use yours? in front of the amp's preamp, as a preamp replacement, in the effects loop. It takes on a really different tone when you bypass the amp's preamp, a little less...processed, I guess.
I played one using it as a preamp, sounded alright but I didn't notice a processed tone before hand. The gain seemed a bit wooly, I suppose it's all in what you're using it with.

They might appreciate your new purchase.
