    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Bass Big Muff PI Distortion Effects Pedal:

    Awesome, awesome pedal. This pedal will give your rig one beastly growl. A real monster of a pedal. I like pairing it up with my MXR M82 Bass Envelope Filter. Get the settings to where you like them, and it's an amazing combo. Even on its own though, it's a pedal that every bassist should have in their rig.

    Best Bass Distortion

    By Marc B.

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Bass Big Muff PI Distortion Effects Pedal:

    Electro Harmonix Bass Big Muff is, in my opinion, the best bass distortion pedal you can buy for this price. I have owned the pedal since it was available, maybe going on two years now and I have been impressed since I first plugged it in.

    First, it's easy to use. The three control knobs are self-explanatory: Volume is volume out, tone controls the boost to high or low end, and sustain controls the amount of distortion.

    Second, there is a tone switch unique to the bass muff. When in the Norm position, the pedal sounds like an older, green Sovtek Big Muff from the 80's. When the switch is in the Bass position, an added amount of low end is added to your signal. These added bass frequencies contribute to A LOT of low end rumble and shake...something that has always been missing in bass distortion pedals. The third setting, Dry, is my favorite. When the switch is set to dry, your clean bass signal is then combined with the distorted signal. In other words, the three controls only effect the distorted signal and you can modify the volume, tone, and gain of the distortion without taking away from your clean signal!

    Finally, the pedal is offered at a great price! I have used other pedals that have cost twice as much, and the Bass Big Muff out-performs them.

    In conclusion, if you are looking for an affordable, great sounding, and flexible distortion pedal for bass, the Electro Harmonix Bass Big Muff is for you.

    Awesome pedal!

    By Juan S-B

    from Salisbury, MD

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Bass Big Muff PI Distortion Effects Pedal:

    After struggling with other distortion and fuzz pedals, i must say that this one is the best i have played to date. From the minute i opened the box, i could tell it was well crafted. batteries were already included and they were fresh. There are three knobs and a 3-way switch. It doesn't feel cheap or fragile. There are many different sounds possible with this pedal, from a slight crunch to a little fuzziness on top of your notes to full-blown distortion and fuzz. The best feature is the switch by far. You can choose from standard fuzz (which is actually softer than the others), bottom-heavy fuzz, and a combination of clean and dry. The third one is very versatile and is ideal if you're looking to add to your sound instead of changing the waveform completely. Overall, a great pedal!

    crushing distortion

    By nick-5dvxV

    from glasgow, kintucky

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Bass Big Muff PI Distortion Effects Pedal:

    i haven't played bass with the regular big muff so i wouldnt be able to compare it with this one but id hope they sound similar considering how good this sounds, the distortion is very thick and dense and heavy. its not thin and whiny like some others Ive played. it also sounds really good playing metallica stuff like "for whom the bell tolls" and "anesthesia". THIS PEDAL ROCKS HARDCORE"
