The new Nano Big Muff Pi works and sounds identical in every way to our classic NYC Big Muff Pi. We simply shrunk it without changing its rich sustain and legendary sound.

For over 44 years, the Big Muff Pi has helped define the sound of rock guitar. Revered by contemporary guitarists and rock legends alike, everyone wants a piece of the Pi. Now you can have it in our time-honored classic chassis, or our new, compact nano design.
