    I know it's not a Big Muff, I'm already covered there...but I'm looking for a good zippy overdriven sound. Mainly for slashing chords and rhythm work, as I love the BMP sound for leads.
    I'd like to hear some opinions on the Double Muff. Thanks folks!

    Not bad at all. Very versatile and cheap. Definitely one of the more obscure OD's.

    Worth it. For the price a no brainer. It does get fuzzy, despite come comments. I think of it more of a fuzz than an overdrive to be honest - and I never use the single muff mode.

    this is a unique pedal, I can't think of anything that sounds like it.
    EH hit one way outa the park with this one, it absolutely rules for solos with a strat, makes the single coil pups sound fat like HB's. as far as a rhythm pedal for slashing chords:dunno you'd just have to try it.

    It's a *fuzz*.

    And it cleans up like the best of them (I also own a MJM London fuzz and a fuzzfactory).

    Weird....I was just looking at this pedal on MF and then I come over here and there's a thread about it right on top. Think I might try one out for myself.

    What is also weird is that everyone here like this pedal so far. I have had one for a few years and can't really bond with it. I feel like it's a very harsh pedal. I sometimes liked the muff 1 setting, but still felt that it was a bit to treble-y and hard to dial in a nice warm tone. Mine's been collecting dust for a few months now.

    It's a little mushy in the low end. It borders distortion and fuzz. Super moddable (makes a very cool feedback looper)

    When used in single mode, check out how the muff two volume affects the tone as you turn it. Fun box for the money, pretty good at pushing a amp that's breaking up in single mode.

    Not exactly, it contains two muff fuzz overdrive circuits and when you you run them together its kinda like half a big muff.

    Not a bad sounding pedal from the PGS demo. I wish they came out with an XO or Nano size instead of the small wedge though.
