    I have a USA reissue Big Muff and while I've had some luck with it, I haven't really found the ideal setting yet. In that light I was wondering if the Big Muff users here could share their settings. For the record, I usually play a Fender Jazz into an Ashdown. Thanks everyone!

    Thanks to everyone that's posted so far, I've made note of everything and I'll playing around with them when I have some time to crank everything up loud. In the meantime, keep 'em coming...

    (on a russian re-issue)
    Heavy fuzzed-up distortion (cliff-style):
    sustain: full
    volume: as needed
    Tone: 3-4 o'clock
    Lighter distortion:
    Sustain: 8 o'clock
    Tone: 1 o'clock
    Volume: as needed
    Sludgy, bassy fuzz:
    Tone: 8:30
    Volume: as you like
    Sustain: 3 o'clock
  11. Those are good responses for a really trebly, fuzzed up sound.

    If you want a warmer, overdriven sound:
    Volume: adjust to whatever you need
    Tone: 8:45-9:00
    Sustain 6:30
