So I noticed that EHX is putting out several very well reviewed iterations of the Big Muff Pi these days-- a green Russian one, and a Rams Head one, both in a nice, standard sized pedal chassis. Looking for thoughts on whether I should pull the trigger on one or the other, or neither. I have had a germanium FF and a silicon FF. Way back in the 70s I had an original BeeBaa fuzz. I'm not really into super heavy fuzz--- for the most part I have no use for it in my typical applications. I like a singing lead tone, but I can get that from using two dirt pedals, both turned on. All that said, I know that the Big Muff can be used to get a nice singing, sustain lead tone-- witness David Gilmour as Exhibit A. It can also be used to get a heavy fuzz grind or even nasty, spitting fuzz, on the very rare occasions that I might want to use it for that. For $89 or $99 it seems pretty affordable and could be fun. OTOH every fuzz I've ever had has never stayed on the board because I'm more of a classic overdrive/distortion guy. Think tones ranging from super clean to Billy Gibbons/Jimmy Page/Gary Moore/Scofield. But I've always wanted to like fuzz, and I've never given a Big Muff a try before.
