Double Muff Fuzz/Overdrive

Classic dual overdrive. The original 1969 plug-in Muff Fuzz had just a touch of overdrive and sounded like a vintage amp with a slightly torn speaker. We paired two of these together in one box to create the Double Muff. Use just one Muff for a hint of milky distortion, or cascade the second Muff for over-the-top overdrive that turns the milk into cream. Two distortions in one! Now in a compact, rugged Nano-sized package.

Check out this fantastic Big Muff anime from the incredibly talented Japanese artist Nota.

Anthropomorphism, the attribution of human characteristics to an object, is highly prevalent in Japan with mascots giving living, often human form, to everything from fast food to computers.

While we can't say these are official Big Muff mascots or even the characters we imagine when we think about the various versions of the beloved Big Muff, there's no disputing the high level of creativity that Nota used when designing these imaginative beings.

Here’s the latest videosong by the multi-talented Bayu Ardianto. This time he’s collaborating with Lola Bangs The Drums, a duet featuring Natalia Pratiwi and Dika Charles Dickson.
The title of the original song is “Dekati Aku” which translates to “come and get me!”

When producing this videosong Bayu drew inspiration from big band, swing music. He explained that because he doesn’t have brass instruments he mimicked the brass with his pianica and an EHX Voice Box in unison mode (one octave higher, one octave lower).

Bayu used the following EHX products in this production:
Voice Box (pianica)
Cathedral Stereo Reverb (electric guitar, electric piano, acoustic guitar)
Stereo Pulsar (electric guitar)
Russian Big Muff Pi (bass, lead synthesizer)
Double Muff (electric guitar)

A short excerpt from the documentary film "Fuzz: The Sound That Revolutionized The World" in which Electro-Harmonix founder Mike Matthews tells the story of EHX's first product, the LPB-1.

Mike also reveals the origins of "Muff," which we take care to use very sparingly: Bass Big Muff Pi, Big Muff Pi, Big Muff Pi (Russian), Double Muff, English Muff'n, Little Big Muff Pi, Metal Muff, Micro Metal Muff, Muff Overdrive, and Pocket Metal Muff (all featured in our Distortion, Fuzz, Overdrive category).

The clip also features Chris Ross (Wolfmother) and ends with J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) showing off his unbelievable Big Muff Pi collection.
