    This may be a stupid question, might not be, but I'm really curious. Since the Muff'n has glass tubes inside it, how durable is this thing? Can it stand to be knocked around a bit without the tubes breaking?

    I ask because I've finally decided to go for a high-end distortion unit, nothing lower-end I've tried I've liked, and I like all the Muff'n soundclips I've heard.

    The thing I'm worried about is that it'd probably be knocked around a bit in my dorm room, and I wouldn't want the tubes my new $200 effect shattering... If that would be a problem, I'd probably just try and find something solid-state.

    1/2 the tubes are within the housing of the pedal, and the guard is really sturdy, and covers the tubes well IMO. I've knocked mine around a bit and never had problems.
