Another Big Muff reissue from EHX:

EHX wrote:
We have reissued the original Version 1 Big Muff and it’s dripping with vintage Electro-Harmonix DNA and tone. Dubbed the Triangle Big Muff because of the layout of its Volume, Sustain and Tone controls, this is the one that started it all. The new Triangle Big Muff is a faithful re-creation of the original circa 1969 circuit now housed in a pedalboard friendly, die-cast chassis.

Electro-Harmonix founder, Mike Matthews, says: “The Big Muff Pi is the pedal we are best known for so I wanted to commemorate EHX’s 50th Anniversary (1968-2018) by re-releasing V1, the very first Big Muff. Original pedals are now selling for hundreds of dollars and this reissue absolutely nails that creamy, violin-like sustain and musical tone at a price a working musician can afford.”

The Triangle Big Muff features the following nods to convenience: an LED to indicate effect status, true bypass switching and the option of being powered by a 9-volt AC adapter.




EHX did an demo:

Me too.

I'm a bit of a dunce when it comes to Muffs tbh. I've got the Tone Wicker one, which I really like, but this sounds, on the basis of that demo, quite different. So many variables though (guitar, pups, toanfingerz, amp etc) that it's hard to be certain.

Remember when there were two options, unless you could miraculously find a vintage model?

Nano Big Muff Pi
Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker
Deluxe Big Muff Pi
Green Russian Big Muff
Op-Amp Big Muff Pi

Double Muff
Germanium 4 Big Muff Pi
Bass Big Muff Pi
Nano Bass Big Muff Pi

There are some "Metal" Muffs too but not sure they're really the same thing.

Generally think Sovtek got the mojo but this one sounds excellent... may have to put one on my list of things I don't really need.

It’s probably on its way.

Interesting indeed. The values of the caps and resistors they were using back then were so variable that the "Triangle sound" in this case could be any one of several batches, so I wonder what they're basing it on. It would be amusing, but somewhat understandable, if they turned to the BYOC Large Beaver or another one of the popular cloned circuits rather than their own archives for inspiration.

I'm sure I'll pick one of these up at some point, if only to see how it stacks up against my North Effects version. Comparing the various clones I have at home my Triangle is smoother, lower gain, less fuzzy and saturated than most, and I can do palm mutes comfortably without it sounding like mush. Out of the old versions, the red ram's head version is the only one I've not tried yet but the "violet" is my personal favourite, followed by Tim's Russian and Mike's IC.
