Big Muff sounds great through Princeton, but terrible through Mesa?

    I have always had issues with muff type fuzzes through gain channels. They seem to work good on clean/overdriven clean channels but they rarely sound good through lead channels in my experience, if gain is moderate to high. Some people say gain + fuzz = good, but I never seem to get it to sound desirable.

    Might just be a fuzz thing. My Moen Fuzz Moo sounds AWESOME through some of my amps, and CRAP through others. There seems to be no middle ground with this pedal.

    You should always try gain pedals thru the low input first. (It’s there for a reason)

    My experience too.
    I've got some dirt pedals that sound good on all amps (usually boost/tube screamer derivatives/lighter OD).
    Some dirt pedals only play nice through some of my amps, and some only on the clean channel of some of my amps.
