I played an EHX Bass muff today as well as a Tone wicker version into a TRRI at GC. I really liked the bass muff. Reminds me of the green Russian muff I had in the 90s. I liked how creamy and smooth it sounded with a strat. I've been in the market for a muff and that type really works for me. Is the bass muff based on a Russian muff and if so which version? I'd like to go boutique and was wondering which models I should look at. SUF makes a few variations. Anyway any help is appreciated.
