    Got one of these in a trade.

    Now I've never been an EHX Big Muff man but have to say this is one hell of a fuzz pedal.

    Lot of range of sounds, no low end loss and generally really nice, sound nasty and raspy when you crank the gain and the tone knob but that's to be expected.

    I love the Timmy C look, I'm not sure to sell this pedal either, I traded it to sell but man it's really really nice would be a great cheap pedal to chuck in a bag for a jam since it's got that mild gritty tone as well.

    Enjoy

    Pretty much all the Big Muff's use the same circuit, with just changes to some the component values. So, in theory, any muff can be modified to sound pretty much like any other muff. The transistors and the tone stack vales make the biggest differences. There are schematics out there for various versions. So if you get the BYOC you can just sub some parts to try to get closer to the triangle or green or new USA version.

    True, but still stating the BYOC sounds better to me than any Big Muff I've tried.

    Also is smaller and easier to power.

    I wasn't disputing that :)
     
  8. What about the mid-cut? Is it just as dramatic as any other Muff clone?

    Yeah, that was a great clip. I've been thinking of doing one of those kits for quite a while. The nice thing about the BYOC kit is the small size. I'll probably order one once my Jumbo Tone Bender clone is done, and do the mid-mod that was posted above.
