Anyone try the Metal Muff at NAMM?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ole Jason, Jan 23, 2006.

  1. I spotted the new muff at NAMM but didn't have a chance to go in the booth. Did they have one hooked up? I think they had a new POG too
  2. Metal Muff??? Tell me about it!
  3. sounds interesting. And a new pog?! :eek:

    All the info we have is right here:


    As far as the POG, I've heard nothing of a "new" one. Just the same old one that many have.

  6. I think I just wet myself- awesome new stuff.

    What's "Top Booster" mean though? More treble? :eyebrow:

    I heard the Metal Muff on guitar at NAMM.It sounds like a Triple Rectifier! I also heard the Mini Muff, it sounds somewhere in between the Russian and American Big Muff......
  8. yes
  9. But why bother having a pedal for guitar (which I take it the Metal Muff is) that adds treble? :eyebrow: :confused:

    treble isn't necessarily a bad thing when it comes to bass. It just depends on the sound you're after. If you don't like that twangy, gritty distorted bass sound, then this pedal prolly isn't for you. Treble is just part of the sound spectrum. Everyone's spectrum is shaped differently depending on the desired sound.

    Also, the top boost may be optional (like a seperate switch).
  11. No no, I totalllllly dig treble in my sound :)

    But my understanding was that this was a guitar pedal, not meant specifically for bass, or both bass and guitar.

    True? :eyebrow:
  12. actually a lot of guitar gods from the 60's and 70's had treble boosters--eric clapton, jimmy page, tony iommi, and i think brian may, but i'm not sure...
    EDIT: plus vox is known for their treble boosted amps aren't they?

    I wonder if it is a Dallas Rangemaster type of boost.
  15. I was thinking of the HOG, not a new POG. The HOG definately looks cool though.

    I'll prolly get the metal muff for sure

    I'm gonna selfishley bump this thread and ask if anyone knows anything more about the HOG yet other than that it'd bankrupt me. A POG has been on my GAS list for a while and now they come along with something with even more controls and an ever larger price tag!

    Massive pic of the HOG: http://www.fdiskc.com/syn/namm/2006/eh_hog.jpg

    Oh... good... lord. It has -2 octaves all the way up to +4 octaves. BASSQUAKE! I'm gonna go take my 6 string and demolish me some buildings. Call Accugroove and tell them to put a Whappo Grande on hold :D.

    If you look, the ring of LEDs is for the expression pedal, has octave bend, step bend, volume, wah, filter and more. Since I've been wanting a wah, a whammy, a POG and a volume pedal, maybe I can justify the price now!

    Oooh, midi control and a footswitch as well! This thing has it all!
