i dont like it because it's too loose IMO. it just doesnt let notes ring clearly. however, i know some dude who like it bacause of that nasal and dirty sound.

The main thing about the muff is that it has heaps and heaps of nasty, ratty gain. It doesn't fit well with a dark amp, because it has a ton of bottom end, and it also has a tendency to scoop.

It does have it's own flavor, and you either love it or hate it.

maybe cause its not suited to metal and some nubs might think its a distortion pedal

i definitelt dont play metal.
i dont know what a "dark amp" is....
i have an MG100.
is that dark?
i like the way it kind of cutts and gets reall gritty.
it sounds nice when you crank up the amp,just enough to
blast out thedrums.

I've not played an MG with a Big Muff.

I'm not a fan of the MG, to say the least.

If it works for you, be happy. Seeking approval is juvenile.

My thoughts?


I might quit guitar if I had to use your setup with no other options. And this is coming from someone who plays upwards of 5 hours a day, every day.
#11
i rather lke my setup.
it sounds pretty damn good.
the only thing i dont like abouth
MG is the OD.
which i dont use.
the clean channel is just fine.
i play my strat through it no problems.
if you would quit because of a setup,
then you must not really enjoy it.

No, I just don't like ear rape.

My russian muff is pretty hawt, but as a whole, i think theyre very overrated, very unversatile, one trick pony, basically my muff has one nice setting, a smooth thick solo tone, even touching the knobs from their on makes it too thin, too harsh, too brittle, too muddy, just have to find that sweet spot, it does sound pretty damn nice, but i dont plan on keeping it for much longer.

I havent had much time with the USA muff, but i prefferd the russian when i tried them out, had a bit more edgyness, tighter and a bit more in the mid range department.

the Muff's dark and has a lot of bottom end and a really scooped sound, so it doesn't mix with more american amps, or a darker amp in general. However, it pairs wonderfully with a bright and britishy flavored amp since it benefits from added mids and treble.

it sounds great one recording (listen to Smashing Pumpkins records, specifically Gish since almost all of the guitar tones [distorted] were created with a Marshall JCM 800 and a Big Muff from the 70s) However, in a live setting, they can be quite muddy and undefined, since they don't really have the added mids to cut through.

Yep you love it or you hate it. I tried it so many times but never bought it. but mabye nextime. I bought the dd7 today even that I went to test the bigmuff.
