MathiasWilliam Posted June 9, Slint used Big Muff's?? Does anybody know the original source of this info? I know it's not Dolphin. Author Members. Katarzis Posted July 31, Posted July 31, More bass, less gain but a very different sound. MPSA13's: ultra high Hfe around Nice touch for some more gain. Use four of the same transistors or try to mix. Note from Coda Effects: I also experimented with Album) few transistors, here is my feedback about this: The first transistor is the one that will define the most of the gain of your unit.

I tried a few ones: 2n high gain, but also gives a "gritty" touch to the muff that I do not really like. Also quite noisy 2n nice sound, gainy unit, Album) less noisy and agressive trebles than 2n I really like it and use it often. Beware: polarity is reversed compared to 2n MPSA extreme gain!

I would suggest to increase emitter resistor to limit gain especially for noise issuesbut you can have a nice "doomy" muff with it! The two transistors of the gain stages play a bit more with compression. I usually use low hfe. The last transistor will define the final output volume of the unit. I like to have quite a lot of output volume, so I prefer to use high hfe transistor for the last stage, like 2n, or MPSA Connect the emitter of Q3 with the emitter of Q2 through a switch so you can turn the loop off.

The sustain will be on full when this mod is engaged. Connect the collector of Q3 with the collector of Q1 through a switch. The sustain now can be varied by the sustain knob. Great addition : add a 1M potmeter in the loop wired as a variable resistor or, even better!! Note from Coda effects: this is really cool, but I will suggest to use a momentary footswitch. If not, you can be quickly bored with the noisy issues that will rise from this mod.

However, from times to times beginning of a songit is a Album) mod to use! By bypassing the tonestack the tonestack has no influence anymore on the sound thus does not color the signal in it's own way. Great way to get a more middy tone from your Muff. As the tone stack also cuts volume you get a huge volume increase. One of my most fav mods. Remove the tone stack altogether from the Muff and place a three band EQ circuit in it's place. Works like a charm and gives you more control over the sound!

Mike Matthews, its founder, went on to build Big Muff pedals under the Sovtek brand starting in the early 90s on a side note, Sovtek had a killer line of amps at the time. Their current range of pedals is huge. The connoisseurs think that the current range of Big Muff is quite inferior sounding to the 70s gear and even to the Sovtek Models. If you would like a much more detailed history of the Album), check out this post on Gilmourish.

You can also visit this awesome site for more details and schematics. First of all, let me tell you that the Big Muff is an animal that is difficult to tame. You might try it and think that it sounds really harsh. The good thing about the Big Muff is that it plays quite Big Muff - Dead Mould - Polymog (CD with other pedals. For instance, a compressor placed before will really smooth out the tone whereas an overdrive placed after can remove the relative harshness of the tone, especially at low volume.

  5. The Big muff contains 4 diodes (2 pairs of diodes), that clip the signal to create gain, and compress the signal. Changing these diodes can change the compression and gain of the pedal drastically: Silicon diodes: these are the original diodes used in the Big Muff. Usually, they are 1n type diodes, and gives the Big Muff reference tone.
