    I've noticed in a few pics of you guys rigs that you've got a big muff sittin right out front.I know its for guitar and some guitar pedals sacrifice the lows, but I want to know if the big muff does? And is it worth it and what kind of sound can I get out of it?

    It sacrafices some lows, but a few tweaks can be done with a soldering iron and $2.00 worth of parts from Radio Shack. Swap a couple capacitors and the tone will have a little more bass and still retain the Big Muff tone.

    its a distortion pedal. it adds fuzz / overdrive / distortion (all basically the same thing) to your sound. People like the big muff because it sounds pretty good on bass, and isnt that expensive. much better (imo) distortions are the sans amp bass driver and the fulltone bassdrive but they are alot more expensive.
