EHX Double Muff?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by KeithBMI, Jan 1, 2007.


  1. Yes? No? How is it?

    I'm looking for a fair bit of dirt, and this little thing looks like it would be more versatile than a little big muff. BassPlayer gave it a good review. How does it hold the low end?

    *edit* Is the single circut the same as the new nano muff overdrive?

    I owned one recently: it's an interesting box since you don't mind losing a bit of low end, as it is designed for guitar first. EHX says it adds a little overdrive in single mode, but I think it's much more a fuzzy tone here; double mode makes your bass scream but you'll get a guitar tone with it, with a lot of mids. You'd better definitely try a real Big Muff, as it has a tone button, so that you can preserve a little bit more of low end.

    And ah, yes: I sold it to get a Fulltone Bass-Drive, holy grail of all bass overdrives (but it's a lot more expensive!).

    Hope this will be helpful.
    But never forget that thing: try it and hear if it's the one you need! :bassist:

    From my experience with it, I've found that it is essentially two nano Muff circuits in a single box. It sounds fine, but I found single mode to be less gritty than I'd hoped, and double mode had had a bit too much oompf to be useful.
