Classic Muff Fuzz with Mid-EQ Flexibility
There’s a reason Electro-Harmonix continues to expand its Big Muff line — these fuzz pedals deliver some of the most iconic guitar and bass tones ever created. And with the Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff Pi, you get the classic sound of the Big Muff combined with the comprehensive tone-shaping controls found on the Deluxe Big Muff Pi. In addition to the familiar Sustain, Tone, and Volume controls, you have a parametric midrange EQ section with up to 10dB of boost/cut, and a Wicker switch for tailoring your high frequencies. Top it off with a wet/dry Blend control and a noise gate to tame excessive noise, and you’ve got a does-it-all Muff with the Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Big Muff Pi.
Tone-shaping tools for added flexibility
On top of the tried-and-true Big Muff tone, the Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff Pi offers impressive tone-shaping capabilities. Most notably is the footswitchable Mids section, complete with a variable center frequency and boost/cut knobs. This allows you to focus the mids, kicking them in anytime you need a little more “oomph” to cut through the mix. With the traditional Big Muff, chords could get a little mushy (which was part of the charm!), especially at high gain settings. The addition of a Wicker switch compensates for this, tailoring your high-frequency response for a clearer attack. The noise gate keeps hum and buzz at bay while keeping your tone intact.
Expression pedal input for real-time mid sweeps
All the tone-shaping power built into this incarnation of the Big Muff is awesome, but what really makes the Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff Pi a step above a traditional Muff is the expression pedal input. It gives you control over the mids, effectively turning the Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff Pi into the meanest wah you’ve ever heard.
