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."

This pedal was conceived of and designed by EHX from globally sourced components. Every EHX pedal goes through a stringent testing process by musicians and technicians in NYC before packing.

Mike Matthews stated: “The image on our Flashback Poster is of the original artwork that inspired the famous Electro-Harmonix logo. I think players who dig our pedals will also enjoy the chance to own a piece of EHX memorabilia.”
Did you know that Electro-Harmonix makes many of the world's greatest vacuum tubes? The next time you need to re-tube your guitar, bass, or hi-fi amp, be sure to insist on getting authentic Electro-Harmonix tubes.
Our new EHX Strings Electro-Harmonix electric guitar strings are custom-designed to our specifications and made in the USA by a premiere string manufacturer. Each wound string is precision wrapped with round nickel-plated steel onto a high carbon, hexagon-shaped steel core. The plain strings are made from the same high carbon steel as the hex cores. The high quality steel and computer controlled winding process results in strings that intonate accurately, are better at staying in tune and vibrate evenly for maximum sustain.
