So I've been reading up on a few threads and I'm interested in buying a Big Muff Pi for my setup. Is distortion a worthy buy? I mentioned to my drummer I was thinking about buying a distortion pedal and he basically gave me the no-no; his reasoning being that I don't use effects at all, so why would I need any effects. Weird reasoning if you ask me. Anywho, should I get the big muff pi? Can somebody really convince me? Where should I go to get one? I signed up for ebay last night (after reading the threads on the muff ), but my guitarist told me to go on musicianfriend and just buy a US made one. Russian or US? The choices!
