    Is their anyway I can set the Double Muff to not have fuzz come through, just distortion?

    Sorry I can't help with your settings problem, but I really like the polyphonic ending to the song in your sig.

    I noticed that you use a Big Muff too, its a nice pedal for bass.

    I wouldn't mind someone answering this question, but I don't really need an answer because now I'm happy with the sound this thing is giving me. I change my mind a lot. :smug:

    Nope. The muff is a fuzz circuit. Add another and it's fuzzier. No distortion here ;)

    Yep. I like to use one. It's just the Double Muff was cheaper.

    How did you customize your Muff?

    Couple swapped caps mostly. A resistor or two swapped and a different LED for the electronics. Then the BOSS type power adapter and Gibson knobs.

    Couldn't tell you exactly. I sold it.

    No!!! The Double Muff won't work on the Jazz Bass I just bought. WHY?

    What do you mean doesn't work?

    Maybe gremlins decided to unplug your bass when you weren't looking ;)

    No. It sounds like a clean bass with no effects! There's no fuzz. I've tried changing all the settings on the amp, the bass, and the Muff.
     
  10. did you press the big silver switch to engage the effect? do you have your bass plugged into the input then the output going to your amp? do you have a fresh new battery or a working adapter?

    Yes. Yes. Yes, I just recently put in this battery.

    Oh... My other bass in single muff mode was more than enough fuzz for me. To get that sound with my Jazz Bass I just had to put it on a low setting in double muff mode. Awesome.

    That really had me scared.


    :D

    Where do I get these caps and how do I replace them? And Tplyons, what was the point of swapping resistors, does this make for more low end too?

    :confused: help me out.

    Sorry for the delay, was out in West Virginia fixing homes.

    You can get the caps from Radio Shack or Mouser.com or smallbearelec.com. Swapping resistors doesn't add more low end, but swapping film resi's for carbon comp's warmed up the sound a bit.

    Replacement is easy. Heat and remove solder from leads, put new one in place and solder.

    If you're not confident to do it yourself, have someone else do it.
