Newbie question about the Big Muff

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by El Poopenstein, Feb 6, 2006.

  1. I just play 3 chord surf/junk/punk rock, stuff like: Sloppy Seconds, The Fartz, The Mummies, The Queers, Guitar Wolf, and Fear. I just recently purchase a Big Muff distortion pedal and my question was; is there a way I can make come out sounding like a Dirty Overdrive? :help:

    I came to you hoping to get some good advice, but me being a noob, I can see how a question like this can make most of you chortle. :p

    I'd sugest putting the gain (sustain) knob all the way down, adjust the volume for unity. Then start raising the gain and lowering the volume until you get the dirtyness. Adjust the tone to suit, repeting the previous and this step as necessary :D
