So you are obviously fans of the Big Muff but what about the Germanium OD or the Germanium Muff? I was thinking of buying a boutique germanium fuzz or possibly building one from a kit but I've seen some youtube vids of the Electro Harmonix germanium pedals and they seem to sound similar at a fraction of the cost. Sadly, I haven't been able to try one out in person yet.
Germanium ODs are alright but I don’t really like the Germanium Muff. If I were you I would save up and go with the boutique option.
what are your (you guys') thoughts on devi ever fuzz pedals?
i've got one and i can say it's brutal! and price-wise they're not too far off a big muff, much more compact package too.
I’m personally a pretty big fan myself. She’s an awesome gal and builds some insane shit. I’ve had a chance to fuck around with a few different ones over a while, and have always found myself enjoying it.
Obviously you guys aren't keen on the Little Big Muff, which is fine. But hypothetically, lets say I wanted a good value for money fuzz pedal and I simply didn't have room on my board for the original Muff, lets be honest it's pretty chunky. What would you recommend?
Get a bigger board. How this would be a problem to anyone is ridiculous… Caring more about the look and tightness of your pedal board rather than making sure all the key components are there is rather silly. There are no substitutes.
