Huge fuzz in a teeny pedal!

The Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Effects Pedal revives the big sound of the 1969 classic Muff Fuzz effect in a compact, die-cast aluminum package. No complicated settings needed here: just the switch and a volume knob. Rugged construction and amazingly compact
to save valuable pedalboard space! The red LED indicates when the effect pedal is switched on.

You can power the Nano Muff Overdrive pedal with a 9V battery, or an optional 9V 100ma tip-positive AC adapter with an 1/8" plug.

I think this pedal gets unfair reviews--why are people expecting so much from a ONE KNOB pedal??What you get through is a great vintage tone--it's one of Electro-Harmonix's first two circuit designs. It's a fairly dark overdrive that borders on fuzz but has way more clarity than a fuzz pedal. Also the lighter you pick, the cleaner things get--this pedal can get very clean. Also, back your volume off and get major clean up. So it's a pretty articulate sound that reflects your guitar's tone more that most tightly clipped overdrives or distortions. I like it, I just don't expect a 1-knob pedal to do it all. If you know how to vary you picking intensity and adjust your volume knob for cleaning up, it's actually decently versatile. It's also got great classic/vintage tone at a very low price. Note--I use an LPB-1 after my Muff Overdrive. It expands and fattens things up in a natural (as in, not super clipped) way. With the Muff followed by the LPB-1, I get some great vintage-y overdrive sounds that are more dynamic and don't sound super clipped and unnatural.

Great Versatile Distortion Tones

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

Overall great little pedal for the money. I found it really responsive to picking dynamics and EXTREMELY responsive to the guitar's tone control. You can go from snarling nasal distortion to thick chucking crunch just by turning your tone knob down. I bought this to use almost like two distortion pedals. I recently joined a 50s & 60s cover band. So I needed something that would clean up and play nice on stuff like "Johnny B. Goode," (single Muff) but also be able to fuzz it up for some "White Rabbit," and "Purple Haze," action (double muff). This distortion isn't exactly dynamic and nuanced but put a clean boost in front of it and you can get some satisfying sustain on it. This sucker pairs up very well with my wah pedal too. Someday I'll probably drop serious coin on something a little more "elegant" but for now this pedal will scratch the itch. It's simple to operate and you can get a lot of variety out of it based on how you play, but you have to know what you're doing. If you're a "set everything to 11" kinda guy this pedal's not gonna do it for you.
I like the two Muff circuits. That is a cool idea. Not a lot of bells and whistles, but that's what I want... simplicity. I'm not the kind of guy who needs to be able to surf the web and file my tax returns on my effects pedals. I just want decent sound without breaking the bank. I also dig the smaller "nano" size, fits easily on even the most cluttered pedal board.
Seems to be rock solid so in that aspect it gets hight remarks. There are some things that could be beefier, like the switch to select between single and double Muff circuits for example. I like to switch this with my toes. Looks like it won't stand up to much abuse. The pedal also makes an audible "thud" noise when you switch it on. If you time it correctly it actually sounds really cool. But it's not exactly "smooth" in operation. There is also a bit of hiss or noise but nothing you can't work around. I found that rolling the guitar's tone knob down a bit does a LOT to reduce this.
The price is right!!! This is plenty of distortion at an easy price tag.

Good pedal, doesn't seem to work with my amp

By Ethan Lewis

from Undisclosed

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

I received this pedal as a gift from a relative and it has just the sound I'm looking for - nice and scooped. However, playing it through my amp (a Line 6 Spider IV 15) I got a truckload of unwanted hiss. Figuring I wouldn't need it, I gave it to a friend of mine, and when he played it through his Fender Frontman amp, no hiss whatsoever. Not sure why, if anyone can help that would be great.

great pedal

By deckles

from GA

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

In the overall game of pedal comparison... and 8 is great. This doesn't do leads very well on just a clean amp, unless its a quiet sort, but on my dirty amp, it just sings.
I am a sucker for simple pedals. I don't like having even tone knobs, just a simple function that has the essentials. So as far as that goes, this pedal is great. However, a volume knob seems strange, I would have put a gain knob. Then again, this pedal reacts to your guitar and the input into the pedal, so you can clean it up with your own knobs and maybe I'm just overlooking the volume knob. being me... I keep it cranked.

It sounds great with a tube amp. Very dark, very even, good grit, not saturated, just real overdrive. My germanium overdrive has a nice brightness so I have either or to go with for option. Apparently if you put a compressor into it you get a sweet boost of volume, gain, and sustain. Through a clean amp, you could add another dirt pedal and actually create some good usable fuzz
Overdrive? And its ehx? I mean c'mon. It is a seriously useful little toy/gadget that is not overpriced and bland or unnecessary.
I kinda mixed up the two value and the quality. But to elaborate, it is essentially perfect. And not that there cant be multiple types of perfect, like a fulltone ocd, but for what this is and what you pay, i have the urge to buy 4 more...just because.

Broke after light use

By perfection

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

I had it for about a month...then it broke. Just flat out stopped letting the guitar signal through, then stopped making any noise at all. It sounded good while it lasted...the very short bit it lasted.

People don't get it...

By jack22

from San Francisco

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

I just bought this pedal and I LOVE it. But, to love this pedal you must know what to do with it. It sounds best when used in conjuntion with a somewhat dirty TUBE AMP. It's not a fuzz or standard overdrive (like a Tube Screamer). The Muff OD is an extremely simple signal booster with some fuzzlike color. I crank it up all the way with a Tele through a couple old tube amps in stereo. If you play through that and it doesn't sound good, you need to reassess your playing style.

Excellent

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

This pedal has become a main staple on my board. I use it in conjunction with my Dunlop 105Q and it just snarls. The only dirt pedal I will use with my wah.

good classic sound

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

Before digital OD, Nano Muff is mediocre fuzz. After OD, look out. EH prides itself on just on the edge out of control dynamics and this pedal does so in spades. It turns my OD into Fuzz. The sound takes a while to appreciate. Virtually, it makes your amp sound liike the speaker was stabbed with a pencil, but the harmonics produced makes your speaker sound vintage quality. If you like OD and cascading with 2 sets, I suggest this pedal. You get the sound that personifies the 70s.

Nano Muff lives up to my expectations

By keithb7

from Kamloops, BC

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Muff Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

There needs to be an update on this nano muff pedal. There are no issues with using a power plug with other FX, especially boss. I mixed and matched pedals on one daisy chain. No issues at all. Worked perfect. The pedal on it's own is not anything special. However add a LPB-1 (linear power booster) and it really comes alive. You can check out a video I uploaded on UTube. Search for Nano Muff.
