    Someone mentioned Troy Sanders from Mastodon using one; the name rang a bell, so I searched TB for it...and then HC, and I cannot for the life of me find any information on them. Google comes up with precious few mentions, other than it's someone's ("Sonny"? I dunno, that's what it said) copy of a Big Muff.

    Anyone have any info, clips, or experience with one?

    Ha! Two points for Tecx!

    Now I just need some clips of it on bass. (I mean, aside from Mastodon.)

    You just like it because it has the word "beard" in the name.

    Just for the record, I believe that is not the same pedal. Troy Sanders is said to use a Sanford and Sonny Bluebeard Fuzz. The above link is to an Audio Monk Fuzz Beard.

    Oh. And apparently the only way to obtain info is by e-mailing the dude who makes them. His e-mail, which I found here, is medicmusic@hotmail.com

    I'm friends with Sonny, he's in a band called Medic and used to work at Atomic Music in College Park, MD. That's about a mile from where I work and I go there all the time. I haven't seen him in a while though. And yeah, from what he told me, it's basically a big muff clone with a few tweaks.
