    Does the M80 (bass distortion and DI) have a similar tone to the Big Muff? I just got a big muff and would be willing to return it if the M80 will give me a similar drive. The M80 would be more valuable I think anyway since it is also a DI. I know "it's a matter of your personal preference" but I am just curious if its a similar effect.

    No, the distortion on the M80 sounds nothing at all like a Muff.

    I don't think it would. The M80 is distortion and the Muff is a fuzz.

    Not even close. If you want an added DI, get the Big Muff deluxe, I think that has one.
