    I was listening to the live 311 disc the other day in prep for the show and i was really diggin p-nut's distiortion in the song hydroponic. I checked the 311 site and he has a big muff listed as his only pedal. This is a live tape so i know hes not running it through pro tools or anything. Does a big muff really give you this much grindy distortion?

    I haven't heard that song in years but I'm pretty sure it's more of a fuzz.
  3. it is defnitely a big muff usa...not only have i read in interviews that he uses one, i have been in the front numerous times @ 311 shows, and managed to catch a glimpse of a nice big silver box w/ 3 knobs on it on his board...defnintely the big muff
  4. he's also been known to use an SWR interstellar overdrive, so it could be a combination of the two.
