‘Thunderous Bass’

Posted 7/9/2015

“It’s pretty tough to imagine a dirt box that’s more tailor-made for bassists than the Deluxe Bass Big Muff—it has so many options that bassists crave, in a relatively diminutive box. Let’s list them, shall we? In addition to the ubiquitous Big Muff Volume, Tone and Sustain knobs, there is a control for Blend, an adjustable noise gate, an input pad for passive or active pickups, a footswitchable filter crossover section, a dedicated DI output and a direct output for parallel processing. Of course, features are worthless without good source material, and the Deluxe Bass Big Muff delivers. The core circuit is based on the original green Russian Big Muff, which bassists and guitarists pay top dollar for on the used market. The original Russian Big Muff delivers thunderous, dirty lows despite not being designed specifically for bass guitar. However, the Bass Big Muff is, and it includes a Blend control to coax even more low end from your amp, Simply put, the Deluxe Bass Big Muff is a monster and should be considered if you’ve ever even thought about plucking the bass.” – Nicholas Kula. “7 Thunderous Bass Dirt Boxes.” Tone Report June 25, 2015
