With original late-70s Op-Amp Big Muffs selling for exorbitant prices, Mike Matthews decided to take the power to the people and reissue the classic pedal at a price that players could afford! The circuitry of the new Op-Amp Big Muff - sometimes also referred to as the IC or V4 Big Muff - has been faithfully re-created while several practical enhancements have been added including a compact, die-cast chassis and true bypass switching.

The Op-Amp Big Muff was popularized by the brilliant Billy Corgan who first used it on the Smashing Pumpkins epic 1993 album Siamese Dream. After he was videotaped playing and talking about the reissue, Billy stated: "'The magic's still in the box, I can still get what I'm looking for!"

The pedal relies on op-amps rather than transistors and three gain stages rather than four, to create its signature sound. Its a sound thats been described by noted Big Muff collector and historian, Kit Rae, as: "a huge, crushing Big Muff sound with more crunch...great for grungy, wall-of-sound distortion, heavy rhythm playing and heavy leads."

Features:
• A faithful reissue of the original classic circa 1978
• Iconic sound and vibe thats coveted by guitarists
• Controls for Tone, Sustain and Volume, plus a Tone Bypass switch.
• True bypass switching for maximum signal integrity in bypass mode
• Rugged, compact, die-cast package pedalboard friendly
• Ships with a 9Volt battery, also accepts an optional EHX9.6DC-200 AC Adapter
• Dimensions in inches: 2.75 (w) x 4.5 (l) x 2.1 (h)
• Dimensions in mm: 70 (w) x 115 (l) x 54 (h)

This pedal sounds great, is affordable, and fits on even the smallest pedal board. This thing generates an astounding wall of noise on its own, and it only gets better if you stack a compressor or drive (or both) in front of it.

This is the dirtiest pedal I?ve ever played through. It sounds like the 90?s stopped by for a jam every time I plug this thing in.c

Amazing, thick fuzz that really cuts through the mix. It's the sound I've been looking for for so long. Billy Corgan used one on Siamese Dream and this is the reissue. It sounds so much better than a regular Big Muff in my opinion. If you're looking to create a wall of sound, then you should buy this pedal.
