Damn put a severed foot on a pedal and I’m instantly intrigued.

Why aren’t more companies playing the severed limbs game???

This thing sound awesome... it have lot of different sound in it. Really good for stoner... but it's more than just a stoner fuzz.

I was thinking maybe building a clone of the Supercollider. After trying out a EHX green russian muff last winter, maybe maybe...

Asked a friend to add a clean blend control on my IC muff (not really a clean blend, just added a clean volume), gonna test it this weekend, really curious to find out if I got what I wanted/needed, it is something I wanted to do from a long time.

Guitar, and not always so heavy :)* I just want to find some new textures with more gain in the back end of the mix with keeping main sound still intelligible.

Snagged an "Elk Gakki Sustinar" clone and thought it's worth mentioning here. It's basically a Triangle muff with slight value variations and an odd tone cap that gives it a more "open" crunchy tone. Seems like most muff clones go for enhancing the heavier side of things rather than taking this approach so it's a little more interesting in that regard. It's also positive ground with pnp transistors, but I'm not sure how much that's going to matter on the overall tonality compared to the resistor and cap values...

Sorry for super late reply but this is sick as fuck, I checked some demos and it's nasty! Apparently the old ones had like +/-50% parts tolerances lol

I used to not be a fan of the Muff, but have come to love them quite a bit over the past few years. It was my first pedal in the late 70's, but became mated with a Foxx Tone Machine that replaced it. Overall the Big Muff more of fuzzstortion than a proper fuzz or distortion pedal. With all of the variations which Big Muff do you mean? Hell they vary within the same batch. The Tall Font/Bubble Font Russian Big Muffs are my personal favorite, but I also like the first Deluxe Big Muff and the Ram's Head variety. There is one variant/clone that I didn't see mentioned within the thread: the Maxon D&S pedals. These are definitely Muff like with a more usable tone control- Same basic controls with a very similar circuit. Maxon made about 5 or 6 different variations of that pedal. Even Kit Rae acknowledges them as a Big Muff clone. I currently own a couple of them. I bought each for less than $100 on eBay within the last couple of years, so the vintage ones can still be found for cheap. They are the same exact pedal as the Ibanez OD-850 pedals. The first iteration is similar to a Ram's Head with better midrange response. The second one added an LED and isn't quite as good sounding as a result(they're one of the first pedals to have an LED indicator circa 76/77. The second version isn't as loud as the other versions before or after). My favorite variation is the mid 80's Maxon Jet Driver JD-01 which would be the 4th variation. It works great for metal tones as well as rock-awesome for fuzz bass duties. It even has a personality control instead of a tone control making it a Big Muff clone with personality:
