    So I've been looking into modding some pedals, and since my Big Muff Pi's battery harness thing broke, I might just take the opportunity. What mods could I do to it that that will make it sound more like the black Russian one or just outright clone it?

    This won't be too helpful but I had a guy mod an NYC muff for me to a blend of Russian and rams head specs, he said it took a lot of component changing. If you check out general guitar gadgets they have layouts for versions of all the big muffs. You should be able to compare part values on there and replace the ones in your NYC accordingly.

    I found a schematic for the Russian one I want to emulate, but none seem to exist for the current NYC version that I have. Are there any specific capacitors to replace that would get me closer to the sound?
