Just Got My Bass Big Muff

  1. This thing is no joke!

    I'm loving it so far. I'll try to post clips if I can get to it.

    it can really do a huge range of fuzz sounds. the control knobs are really powerful.

    i don kinda wish they'd make a second version based on the BLACK russian muff, though

    I have one great fuzz now ( Mefisto ), but I'm considering buying Bass Big Muff.
    Do you with it's worth it? Anyone tried both this pedals?
    Aren't two fuzzes and overdrive too much in pedalboard? :D

    you can never have too many fuzzes... assuming they sound different. And that you like fuzz.

    I haven't used a Mephisto but it doesn't appear to be nearly as versatile as the BBM. Also, the Mephisto probably really isn't designed for bass. Not that that's a problem if you like the sound of it, but the BBM is really a swiss army knife of bass fuzz.

    Mefisto IS designed for bass. I'ts pretty straightforward fuzz with not so big gain range and different sound varieties as BBM. And the MAGIC of Muff is SO appealing!!
  11. The BBM is actually the second fuzz in my pedalboard. I have a Bass Blogger that I use in front of a Bassballs (in the A loop of my Boss LS-2) and it sounds great for that purpose. I haven't set it in stone, but I think I am going to put the BBM outside of the two LS-2 loops altogether.

    thank you for the correction. I had one of Bogdan's Tonebenders and it sounded very nice on bass despite not being designed for it

    yes i know the difference between these two pedals. But the mephisto samples do not interest me at all... nor do they interest many other folks here... at least I have not heard much enthusiasm about the mephisto here on talkbass. We tend to be very selective about our fuzz pedals around here

    i think Bogdan should have stayed with the tonebender, but imporved the tone range for bass. If he had done that, I would have kept my Bogdan Tonebender

    Yeah I wonder why there's not much enthusiasm about the mephisto / polish hate.
    It's pretty hard to record it in home but I think there's nothing wrong about it.
    I recorded it today - straight into PC, without any preamp http://mazdah.wrzuta.pl/audio/n3pGF5yefy/ ( hard to play anything without hearing it :/ ) What can U say?

    I am going to buy Big Muff anyway, "the GAS is strong with this one" ;)

    i think the thing is that (in the US at least) the BBM and other very flexible fuzzes are available for less than the Mephisto.

    Or maybe nobody thinks it sounds good. Besides Chronicle.
  17. Glad to see the good reviews. I bought a used one off Ebay on Monday. In transit! :hyper:

    I just got one last weekend...I haven't had a chance to use it on my real rig yet (just my practice one), but I love it so far.

    I've got a gig this weekend and I just might get a little fuzz happy. :hyper:

    Another happy BBM user here. I love the "Dry" mode.

    I'm getting one (now that I actually have moneys). I think it'll be nice to have some grit to match the gritiness of my gui****s.
