EHX Big Muff's made after the 90's are terrible. Get something that actually sounds like a Big Muff should, then start again
Stomp Under Foot Civil War
Wren & Cuff Tall Font Russian
Fuzzrocious Grey Stache
Vick Audio Black Russian
Take your pick!
for the life of me, i could not stand the "clicking" of the oxide. on some of my basses, the attack click is flat out annoying.
my death by audio Fuzz War on the other hand, has been nothing but awesome! ... but if you were to say good muff clone vs brass master ... then that would be very hard. muffs are easier to sneak into most types of music while brass master types are not, but when you find the right song for them, its so awesome!
note: i feel like the oxide is supposed to be a brass master clone
I have both the oxide and SUF civil war on my board, and love both.
Like said earlier, the big bass muff pi is terrible. I did try it.
Yup. and then.. it morphs
"The Oxide is a morphing gated fuzz, allowing the user to seamlessly morph between a raucous, industrial octave fuzz inspired by the Maestro Bass Brassmaster, to a modern synthy fuzz with a pinched, gated sound. It includes a clean blend to allow extreme amounts of fuzz without losing low end."
so what gated fuzz can be recommended?
Ask Fuzzrocious if you can get a gate modded into your Grey Stache. I'm sure they would be glad to do that for you.
Mammoth schem with diodes is the best gated bass fuzz I've heard. I've owned an Oxide and Duality and it is better than either for that particular sound.
TAFM. The one fuzz to rule them all.
But if you must have a gate. Fuzzrocious will gate a Grey Stache. Also the oxide is gated as well as the Diabolik. Two completely different fuzzes though just so you know.
I have ordered the Big Muff Pi Deluxe. It was affordable and you seem to be able to play with it and get a decent amount of variation.
Now sure, the ideal dreamfuzz for me is the Fuzzrocious pedals, but they are really expensive! And I don't feel like dedicating 150 dollars for a Fuzzrocious rather than buying a Big Muff Pie for 88 Euroes from Thomann.
My opinion. =)
(I will probably end up buying a Fuzzrocious pedal, but it's not my number one priority right now.)
Please try to convince me to cancel the order!
You will not be disappointed with your Fuzzrocious.
I used to have one. It was lame. Convinced?
Plus fuzzrocious pedals look awesome, especially the kid painted versions.
Please broaden my horizon! Tell my why it was lame =) I am actually really interested!
Also had one, was also lame
The thing would be ok without the DI and all the stuff on the right... crossover? But it does have a blend, so that's cool. You'll see, it's freaking big!
I have this dude now: SUF Civil war and it sounds so much better. But if you try it, and like it then you're all set!!
It was just boring. Yeah it fuzzed up your signal. Sounded weak to me. the crossover sucked IMO. I don't know why you'd want to run DI from a fuzz so it just seemed useless to me. Seemed like the blend was needed to make it sound good which I thought was lame. I mean it's nice to have a blend but it should sound good without it too.
I got 2 kid painted fuzzrocious now, the BDPG and Rat tail/greystache, they look as cool as they sound!! I've been disappointed by fuzz in the past, I had the 90's Russian black muff and I tried a few other later versions, the greystache slays electro harmonix, never tried the old green ones(supposedly the best), but there was one for sale on the classifieds recently!!
convince you?? You already know what you want(the greystache), so why waste your money on the big muff, the clean blend on it sounds cheesy, the 2nd footswitch doesn't do anything, having the DI is nice, but you definitely wouldn't want this as an always on thing, I thought it sounded nothing like a classic muff, even with blend all the way up, whereas the greystache does, but retains lows better even with the tone knob up a bit, you couldn't do that with the older muffs, you had to keep tone fully CCW or you'd sound like a guitar, plus the GS has a midrange knob, very important IMO
I am now convinced! Thanks =)
I think if you got the big muff deluxe (or any modern version)you'd sell it and end up losing money to get one of the muff clones, why waste your money, the big muff deluxe doesn't have the rough edge you expect from a classic muff like the classic ones do, I personally think a modern clone does a better job, or try to find a really old green muff, the revered black Russian one didn't do it for me either, these are just my opinions, but if I can help a fellow TBer save $$$....
