I made a thread the other day complaining about bit being able to score any deals anymore, and that it felt like I had lost my gear buying game. Well, apparently all is not lost, cause today I scored a Big Muff Pi for 30 bucks! It's the big box style, with an LED and mini tele power input jack. Not sure how old it is, but I would guess late 90s - mid 2000s. The seller said it was broken, and he hadn't plugged it in for over 10 years. I thought that 30 bucks is worth the shot to see if I could fix it. So I open it up when I come home, can't see any obviously wrong with it. I try plugging it in, and what do you know? It works perfectly! No idea why he thought it would be broken. I didn't even had to change the battery. This pedal sounds huge. I've never used fuzz very much, so I haven't too much to compare with bad my god, no gear demo can do this box justice. It screams! Unity volume is with the knob about 8 or 9 o'clock, probably the loudest pedal I have ever come across. Tone knob is really versatile, and takes the tone from thick and wolly to broken and spitting. And the gain knob can be set for almost infinite sustsain like it's nothing! I'm a bit overwhelmed actually. This is probably old news to you long time muff fans out there, but everybody has a first time. Only problem I have is that it is really noisy with single coils, even when lowering the volume. Are there any fixes ti this?
