Hey everyone A Big Muff pedal has always been on my want-list for my pedalboard. However, after some research, I read about the many different versions and how the newer models are not as good as the old models and so on. Confusing! Reminds me of the process I went through before buying my RAT pedal - or the process I go through before I buying anything these days, haha - so here I am, asking on TDPRI! To be honest, one of the main reasons I want to get a Big Muff is because I heard that Santana used one back in the day (I love his earlier tones) and of course David Gilmour's 70s sound. From what I understand, these guys used the famous Rams Head version of the pedal I've read some reviews and discussions on Gilmourish.com etc. and I'm a bit undecided. First of all, I had planned on getting an EHX version - for $100 or so. Now it seems like the EHX versions are nothing like the vintage Rams Head etc. and to get that sound, I'd have to get a clone by one of these boutique brands that cost over $200 If they're really that much better, I don't mind saving up. But are the EHX versions really not even close to an old Rams Head? I'm closely looking at the Little Big Muff, mostly coz of its size - I have a Pedaltrain Jr - and I also hear it sounds better than the larger model Please share your opinions on the newer EHX models and if they can get close to a vintage Muff/Gilmour tone - and if not, what clone you think can best get it Thanks!
