Need Help: Big Muff Dead

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Redleader79, Mar 21, 2004.


  1. My EH Big Muff (russian) died today when I plugged it in. I checked the inside and the soldering where the ground wire is connected to the nut had come off. I don't have anything to solder the wire back with so I stripped the wire a tad and wrapped the wire around the nut/screw, but it's still dead. Any suggestions? :meh:

    Get it repaired at an electronics shop. That's your best bet.

    Did you check the battery?
     
  4. yep. I had it in my pedalboard and noticed something was wrong when the LED light would come on for a split second and then go off. I took it out and put a battery in it, but by then I guess the soldering had broken so the light didnt even come on....and it was a new battery.
