    hey all,
    I've been looking through the 1000 Big Muff threads:eek: and I haven't found the question that I'm snooping for.:crying:
    I have a 'black russian' reissue Big Muff that I have used for the past 3 years. When I bought the big muff I A/B'ed the russian vs the USA version and I found that the Russian tone suited my needs the best (harsh but in the way I like it on bass).
    Anyway, here is my question. Is there much of a difference/tone between the new (black) Russian Big Muffs and the (Green early 90's re-issue) Russian Big Muffs. Has anyone tried both?
    I have noticed that the green muffs go for a lot more $ but is that just because they are older and people like to collect them? Or is there really a noticable difference in tone?:eyebrow:

    Any info would be great!!!
