OVERVIEW

The original evolves.

Long revered for its sweet singing tone and violin-like sustain, the classic three-knob Big Muff Pi has helped define the sound of rock guitar for over 40 years. Now, EH has added some extras for those who crave more sound shaping control. Introducing the Deluxe Big Muff Pi. It delivers all the classic sounds of the original NYC Big Muff Pi, plus more.

The MIDS EQ allows tonal shaping of the Big Muff distortion like never seen before, the GATE function lends itself to playing the Big Muff in new ways providing blasts of fuzz when you play and silence when you don't, the ATTACK control adds definition to chords and riffs without getting in the way of the Big Muff's original tone, and BASS BOOST brings back some low end when TONE is turned up to its treble settings.

FEATURES
Big Muff Knob Layout - familiar Sustain, Tone and Volume controls
MIDS EQ - fully parametric MIDS EQ includes variable frequency sweep, boost or cut level control and switchable Q or bandwidth amount
Footswitch for MIDS EQ -turn on the MIDS EQ circuit with the stomp of your foot
Gate - remove unwanted hum

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Big Muff Pi Sustain Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Great tone and very versatile. I don't usually write reviews, but this is pretty frustrating. What is wrong with EHX and their toggle switch? This is the 2nd brand new EHX pedal where the toggle switch malfunctions. Great tone; however, poor quality very frustrating.

      This is the best BMP that I have personally ever played through. Classic NYC BMP sound with an attack knob and a noise gate? Yes please! You can dial in a lot of rich fuzz tones with the left side of the pedal, and make it scream when you use the dedicated MIDS section. Get a nice fuzzy tune going, then solo over it with the mid boost/cut.

      Usable "bells & whistles" vs original - maybe darker?

          Comments about Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Big Muff Pi Sustain Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Will confess to not owning a bigmuff before. Have heard them plenty so decided why not try the latest-greatest version? What could go wrong, they have 50 years building this simple circuit device, and the ,gate Freq range/bass boost cut, sweepable q all seemed to be very usable features. I think keep it simple stupid may be the path to follow in the future as my initial impression is that this example was not as open "stingy/sustain"y"" as the early m¥ffs my band mates used...maybe my ears have changed in 40 years of rock gtr? So what am I saying..is a very good pedal but am slightly underwhelmed . Sustain and attack controls really do a nice bit of shaping and dialing in a paramedic type EQ and foot switching it is a great idea. Just had an expectation to hear a transparent type snap and this fuzz, seems a bit darker than I remember the '80s ones. Lots of interactive tone shapers so maybe I've not hit the right combo yet. My unit was a B stock and the 9v battery won't function so maybe something else is going on with it as it has densely populated circuit board. To be continued as I get more hours tweeking on it as I want to like it

          Comments about Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Big Muff Pi Sustain Guitar Effects Pedal:

          So far this pedal is everything I was hoping for, it's a big m u f f (musicians friend won't let me say the name of a product) all the way but with a mid boost pedal built in. I love everything about it with the exception of the noise gate, honestly it was never a feature I really wanted in the pedal and could take it or leave it from the start but if you do intend to use it you should know that it works against one of the main features of the big m u f f and that's sustain. The gate knob may as well be an on/off switch due to the fact that it either cuts noise or doesn't, there is no in between and its a really hard cut. With the sustain all the way up the gate will 100% of the time cut a sustained note long before you desired the note to end. It's flat out a terrible, useless feature and easily cured with a real gate/noise suppressor. Aside from that everything else about this pedal is top notch, with an expression pedal you can even simulate a cool fuzz wah using the mid boost, cranking the mids to full and the freq to around half. Honestly great distortion, just ignore the gate.
