    You guys gotta know how much I love the Big Muff, I'm psyched about this one: Electro Harmonix is releasing the Double Muff! They say:

    Double Muff- We put two of our classic transistor '69 plug-in Muff Fuzz effects together in one box – which means double the trouble! Using just one gives you a hint of milky distortion, or cascading the second lets you turn your milk into cream.

    If you dig Keith Richard's gritty gooves and soulful flow, the DOUBLE MUFF will let you cop it.
    :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

    And the Pulsar: Vintage-style tremolo with variable wave form. If you can't get into the Pulsar, you'd better check your pulse.

    And coming for a short time in June: Limited Production Run of the 16 Second Digital Delay Reissue

    Nice! Although it'd be nice if the Double Muff had a double footswitch arrangement, for those crank-the-intensity-up-another-notch moments.

    Would I be correct in assuming that the double muff is going to be super fuzzy?

    If so... AWESOME.

    Haven't found 'em in stores yet. I found one on eBay though, so I'll be happy cause it's brand new. I'll be one of the first on my block to own one!

    I just hope EH gets with the program and makes their newer pedals with True Bypass. I would assume they've fixed this little problem by now?

    No doubt the same auction as mine. Our pedals will be brothers.

    Recieved mine in the mail today and I guess the resaler was as anxious to try it as I was. He popped open the ceramic disc and tried out my pedal for a bit, I didn't mind the footpring but opening the box for the first time is Oh, so much fun!

    I plugged it in right away, both dials vertical and in single mode I punched in and my bass goes from clean to a nice, smooth almost fuzz, rather subtle, but lovely. I crank the gain a bit and it gets a bit clankier but still a slightly timid fuzz. I love it! Flip the switch to double, and the two faced beast goes from timid little schoolgirl to all out, in-your-face fuzz! Much harsher than the American reissue in tone, but warmer than the Sovteks, a perfect medium! It's very in your face, but still much clearer than it's Big Muff brotheren, as the treble pushes through, but so does the bass! It's chunky and still manages to let through a nice bassy tone!

    But of course, the usual gripes with Electro Harmonix pedals...they're a tad noisy with active electronics and they have 1/8" 9V adapters. Other than that, I can't say a word, and who can argue with something they call a muff!

    Long story short: Five out of five jumpy guys, great name, great sound, great pedal. Let's just not turn this into the OD250 and have everyone running out and buying one 'cause I love 'em.

    5/5 :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:
