    i've been told the boss distortion could do this, but i'm not sure. the big muff came close, but didnt have enough of deathly low end nrrrr that i want.

    I think there's a way to modify a Big Muff to achieve what you're looking for by adding a little bass to the mix. I'm still looking for it to do it to mine.

    Ummm, I use a Shin Ei fuzz for that effect... Mind you mine is from the 60's and it is probobly worth more than my bass, but it gets the job done... The Zvex Wolly Mamoth or a Effector 13 Beautiful Disaster may be your ticket... The BD is only 100 shipped!...

    ZVex Wooly Mammoth gets my vote.

    Turn up the balance and gain, and tweak the eq on the BOSS and it'll do what you want.

    there's lots of big muffs out there, and all the different issues sound different. the newest ones, all black, sound pretty bad.
    i bought a reissue in '89, and i can't get rid of it, silver with blue writing, it's super zen sick on the lows. older muffs sound better, especially ones with germanium(?) transistors..
    there's also this old pedal, called a super fuzz, it's blue with an orange pedal-top, joe from the thrones/ex-melvins uses one, it's also unreal.

    the boss is the cheapest, so i'll probably look into that.

    can it do a low, electrical like hum?

    like, hum, hum, hum, hummmmm?

    I think I know what you mean. Yes, turn the balance, gain amd high eq up on the BOSS, and the tone (or treble) on you bass down. It make a BIG fat sound then.
