None of them can beat the tone of a good EHX Big Muff. Now I agree EHX quality is hit or miss, but find a good one and the boutique cloners just cannot touch em. The Boutique cloners are making really nice cases, nice added options true bypass etc. But tonally they come about 10% off in my book. There are some great pedals out there, some really good ones but then you just plug in one of these great old EHX muffs and the truth bangs you in the head. :Spank I wonder how sales of the muff clones will be affected by the new EHX Little big muff. Its true bypass, hammond style enclosure so its nice and small, led, standard DC jack, and seems pretty solid. I picked up a Little big muff and the mojo is there, I am not sure how these tiny little surface mounted components fair in tone, some people claim they dont have the tone due to size? I am not sure it seems to be getting the job done. This pedal in my opinion keeps up pretty closely to a vintage triangle muff, I might even like this one better. There are some differences, mainly the new one has a bit more gain and is tighter, but still I think I prefer even this guy over any of the clones I searched out. Anyone agree, disagree, etc.
