I am hoping someone can help me .
I have 2 big muffs that seam to have the same problem.
All of these are reissues
I bought a green Russian and an op amp big muff.
I had them both on my board trying to settle on just one..
Then the green Russian started acting up.
No output at all when off. Then if I turned it on once every thing worked fine.
But worked intermittently.
Opened the pedal up no loose wires.
Reheated solder joints on switch no luck.

So I just started using the op amp.
Then the same thing starts happening.
Maybe a month later .

No sound when I have pedal off.
Now the pedal sounds terrible when it does work.
Also pedal seems to engage when I press halfway down on switch.

Pulled that off my board and put on my bass big muff and it works fine .
Same cables same power supply.

What is going on?

Thanks everyone.

Sounds like a dirty switch.
You could spray deoxit cleaner in the back and front of the switch and work switch abt 10 times to see if that is it.

Or contact the techs Monday at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
