Harshest big muff

Postby Bearstripes » Tue Jul 10, 2018 11:56 am

What’s the nastiest, harshest big muff?

I’m looking for super nasty, trebly, buzz saw, etc.

I’ve been thru a hand full

Black Russian- don’t really remember what it sounded like
Little big muff- pretty close and killed on bass but I never liked it on guitar
Pharaoh- sounds not very muffy to me
Way huge Russian- like it on guitar on bass it’s eh. Has a weird mid range hump that I can’t fucking stand (tho this depends on the instrument/pick ups)

So what’s the nastiest? Where do I go?

Was honestly thinking the regular nyc or the swollen pickle?

Regular NYC is pretty harsh, yeah.

for "harsh" you're gonna want to look at the late 70s/early 80s IC Muffs. good luck even using one with the gain set higher than 2.

I think the bass big muff is actually amazing coz you can dial up the tone knob (cutting bass and boosting treble - would normally sound pretty thin and small) then the bass boost toggle fills out the lost low-end. dunno if that makes it harshest of the muffs but it's definitely useful in a way others aren't.

also really good - fredric green russian. less gainy and muddy than most muffs

Swollen pickle has enough pots, both internal and external,that have a ton of range to let you reallly tweak out some harsh sounds. You can get a lot more variety out of a swollen pickle than the nyc.

It seems to me that if extreme harshness is your thing, there's easier ways to get there than a big muff. Although there's a muff for everyone these days with so many variants.

Run a kill kill filter after any fuzz.
In terms of big muff i would think any elk variant or the fuzz war would do

Correct answer

This is 3/4 of a fuzz war and a filter. I love it

IC muffs are also good as, as are rats and muffs combined.

BAT Black Sheep, perhaps?


I've never played one, but that demo gives me GAS.

The haunting mids (the one before jhs) is also a good choice. Have someone build you one.
