    I have never liked the Big Muff after trying it several times, just never really did anything for me - too bright on the top end. But then I saw this cool looking pedal in a display case, plugged in and that was the end of that.

    I really like how this pedal sounds: smoother and a hair warmer than other Muff's I have tried. Great sound.

    I had one of those! They look cool and sound great. Way more midrange than the newer Big Muffs.

    The Russian Big Black Muff is the only Muff I've gotten along with, as far as pedals go.

    I picked one up super cheap at a gear swap and was blown away, actually, by how good it sounded. I was not as attached to it as I was to a couple other pedals at the time and let it go... I made good money on it (for once) but, I think about picking up another some day.Just like @bluesholyman, it was the smoothness of the dirt, maybe even a bit of warmth, that I really liked about it.

    Great pedal, congrats!
