    Well, I guess I don't have to explain THESE.

    As for how I got them, a few months ago, I sold a lot of surplus parts to this store in Amsterdam I frequent and had some credit with them, today I decided to use that money and got myself these two little wonders, although the EHX isn't all that little.

    Tomorrow, I'll hook up my Orange Micro terror (which I also got thanks through that sell) and start dialing in some cool sounds.

    Every NPD should be a double. Well done.

    Those are two pedals that EVERY electric guitar player should own. And they will sound awesome through the Micro Terror

    What a coincidence: I am experimenting the sd1 bmp combo atm.
    Love the sd1 before the muff: the muff gets more aggressive and tight... I Only wonder if It will cut through, you read terrible stories about muffs getting buried in band setting...

    That is also my experience. When I play at home, my muff (green russian) sounds as it should - distortion/fuzz which is midscooped and I like it. But in a band mix, you dont hear yourself.
    I actually use SD1 in front of the muff to solve this problem ;)

    Well, rehearsals went well: the drummer said the sound was softer and more pleasant... Ok, he does not love my nasty usual fuzz...

    The volume on the bmp needs to be around 2/3 o'clock, buy It cuts through, somewhat.

    With the sd1 boosting the bmp, the sound gets more tight, modern and defined. Maybe too much...

    But a glorious sound to have at disposal.

    Okay my findings.

    The Boss smooths out the harder edged natural overdrive of the Orange, it's a nice full creamy sound.

    The Big Muff Pi. I see why so many stoner bands use them, it's great for really doomie riffs but for the power chord based hard rock that my band plays it's not so well suited.

    SD1 into Muff works well.

    Fuzz is a tricky sound to put in the mix. I agree with your point about stoner bands using them. I love messing with Fuzz on my own, but it doesn't work at all in my band.

    As soon as I clicked on the BMP I started playing that riff, it's simply THAT sound.

    Great song, great album, great band.

    I think they used a superfuzz, but the bmp can sound close.

    I've had both those pedals, and they can work nicely together. Good picks.
