    Are these a muff style fuzz? Are there any pedals with a similar circuit out there?

    The Big Cheese is a great and versatile fuzz, but nothing at all like a Muff.
    Here's a gratuitous and sloppy picture:

    How did the Chunky Cheese compare to the original?

    It's pretty close - nearly spot on.
    The OLC captures the all the modes from light spittle to the heavily gated/ zippery fuzz characteristic of the original with a much better and more reliable switch.

    The basic circuit is a buffer driving a fuzzface derivative and then a tone control on the output.
