Electro-Harmonix: Big Muff Pi (Made In Russia)

Price paid: $ 89.67

Purchased from: Micro Music

Sound — 8
I use this with my Epiphone Thunderbird bass through a Laney HCM120B bass combo. It sounds really good. Plenty of vintage distortion effects from a harsh blues breakup to a devastating metal drive. Also offers great sustain. However, sound tends to deterierate as battery runs low.

Overall Impression — 8
I play rock bass guitar and this pedal is mainly used to add punch to my chorus basslines. For the price it realy is a steal and i would replace it if stolen. Although I may try the USA one and see what the difference is.

Reliability & Durability — 8
I have used this live without problem ant the build quality is excelent. Although the controll knobs are a little exposed and could be stood on at a dark venue. Also, no mains supply option is a dissappointment.

Ease of Use — 10
Err... 3 pots, Volume, tone and sustain. One big button (on/off) and that's it. Not rocket science!
