    I have a double muff and I'm not sure if I'm happy with it, I guess I wanted a meaty overdrive/distortion tone that doesnt take away the bass. the muff is a fuzz... anyone here know anything about the pricey Roger Mayer Voodoo-1 distortion pedal?

    I tried it, I found it messed too much with my low end.

    Try the Roger Mayer Voodoo-Bass pedal.. no low-end cut, and it's a really unique/versatile dist./o-drive pedal. The gain and level are completely independent (meaning that you can dial out almost all of the grit, and just 'push' your amp a bit). At full tilt, it'll fuzz you straight outta yr house.

    I got mine for $100 used, and it's been with me for going on 3 years w/no problems at all. Sounds a tiny bit like a warmer version of an original Rat pedal. If you want a sound ref., check out My Bloody Valentine's 'Loveless', as i'm 99% sure that's what was used for the bass.
