So I was looking up some effect pedals and saw many different types of EH Muffs.

Can someone tell me what the main differences are between: USA Big Muff Pi, Little big muff, Big Muff Pi, English Muff'n, Double Muff, and Nano Muff?

Thanks in advance

Muffs are kind of fuzzy sounding distortion units and each one you mentioned has it's own flavor. Best to try and see which one you like.

Don't forget the Metal Muff. Only for metal though me thinks. I agree though it can be slightly fuzzy, still an amazing piece of kit though.

^I don't mean fuzzy in a bad way, it's really in between a fuzz pedal and an overdrive pedal. It's definitely unique.

Yer I know, I did find that even with the Metal Muff though.

my big muff pie sounds nothing like an overdrive, sounds like a massive sustaining fuzzy tone machine (think black keys thickfreaknessy sound) although it will give a tube amp a big push (kick up the ars*e) like an overdrive the fuzzy tones are very different to an overdriven sound to my ears any way

The Little one is also more vintagey sounding.

The Russian is smoother, and the Double Muff has nothing to do with the Big Muff, but the earlier Muff Fuzzes. It's basically two Muff Fuzzes.
