The Prodigy reborn with underworld instincts comes to life wielding the drive of the original classic Big Muff Pi and the earthy support of a bass tailored design with no loss of low end. This is the pedal that bass players who loved the Big Muff sound have been waiting for.

Welcome to the 17th installment of effects guru, Bill Ruppert’s, Effectology Series. Watch and listen as Bill demonstrates how to create extraordinary bass and drum sounds using (just) his guitar and Electro-Harmonix effects pedals. From hand drums to bass pedals, and beyond, Bill picks, slaps and brushes his way through a collection of mind blowing sounds.
Kevin adds: "I like to have as many options of distortion as possible. The Bass Big Muff is such an identifiable sound that it's really nice to add a little subtle grit to the equation. The Blogger does this nicely. In the 'drive' setting, I can push my clean tone up a bit to the edge, then launch it through the roof without having to make extreme jumps."
"At any point on tour I have two (sometimes three) distortion pedals in the chain. 'Die A Little' off our new record was recorded with 18 guitar tracks, and eventually double tracking a distorted bass. Live all I do is turn the Blogger on the fuzz setting with the tone rolled completely off (7 o'clock) and the drive all the way up (5 o'clock). Nails it!"
"If ever there was a brand name linked to the type music we make and completely encapsulate the aesthetic of how good it feels to hold a squealing guitar, it would be Electro-Harmonix. In fact the VERY first pedal I ever bought was a Big Muff Pi."
If you're in the Portland, Oregon area tonight (May 19) go stop in on Viva Voce's video premiere/release party for their new album "Rose City."
Scott Shriner (bass Weezer) sent in this snap from his rehearsal space, while gearing up for the North American tour in support of their top ten "Red Album." Scott wrote to tell us: "The Bass Big Muff Pi is great for a single cab situation with the dry setting, I love it. It's the new standard for fuzz bass."
