I can pull the trigger on this deal, I was hoping to get UG's opinion first. Would the loss of the the sweet tone I get from the muff be off set from tubes?

Try the amp, then make your decision. If you like the amp and don't play metal anymore, sure. (But you may get more for it than $150 on the open market). If you play metal and want to get it out of the V18, you will need that pedal. A V18 isn't really voiced for metal. It can get there but your kind of putting a square peg in a round hole...

Keep the Muff.


It'll be worth something in the future.


Some PCB board Crate amp? Not so much.


If you like the amp, save up. You can't buy another vintage pedal without paying the price. Used Crate V18s can be had for stupid prices.

The old big muffs must sound alot better than my big muff pi.

I can't really find a use for that thing! (unless I crave the sound of harsh transistor fuzz)

I do seem to use my V18 alot.

I also use my el-cheapo Behringer VT911 (tube driven) and much prefer it's sound to the big muff pi.

Can someone post a clip of a classic big muff so I can hear what I'm missing??

If I have time tonight I'll record some clips.

What kind of Big Muff are we talking about here? 90s Sovtek? 70s USA? RAM'S HEAD OR TRIANGLE?!

Keep the muff, those crates are ok, but not fantastic investments.

Vintage Muff vs a Crate V18? ReallY?

Muff all the way...it'll sound better, plus it's oldschool, and you could probably grab a couple hundred for it; i've seen a 78 muff go for 500 beat to shit, so who knows how much you could sell it for, or possibly trade it for something BETTER down the line.

Ah cool. Those aren't as valuable as the original Ram's Head and Triangle Muffs, which go for upwards of $400, but I own a 90s Sovtek and it's a great pedal. Keep it.
