Agreed, IMO the tone of a Big Muff is too harsh without some form of speaker sim (or an actual amp that rolls off the highs) after it.
Dwaynie, it's also possible that you just need to tweak your settings. Sometimes you can get so caught up in the stuff at your feet you forget about what's in your hands. Other times you turn one dial too many and lose your natural tone, and if the natural tone is excellent you may just need to go back to square one and rebuild your settings to get an enhancement out of it.
I recently went through one of those phases, kept tweaking settings, got a new bass, ignored the settings, then rebuilt them to keep what was great about the dry tone of my bass. YMMV, maybe a bass is what you need instead. But if you're happy, leave it alone for now. No sense giving yourself GAS if you're content
