Spent most the day with my new Skreddy Ernie...

And I must say, it's a killer pedal! I'd been looking to try out a good muff-styled fuzz and this thing definitely delivers. Can anyone shine some light on how the other Skreddy Muffs differ from the Ernie? I'll be interested to try them out if they're drastically different.

Bump. Still loving this thing! It's always great when a new piece of gear really inspires ya. Anyone else just love their Ernie?

I had one for awhile but sold it. It's a great pedal for that muff sound, but I prefered my Mayo which was a little warmer/less harsh than the Ernie.

I just scooped up an Ernie in the Emporium today (really was looking for a good tweaked Ram's Head Muff sound with a touch more pronounced Mids, here's hoping I got it right with this one!). What I do know, the Ernie and ? Lady, are very close in lineage with I believe the biggest difference being the transistors. The ? Lady is ragged to the Ernie's smoothness.

hmmm others:

Skreddy Mayo is supposed to be a slightly tweaked Triangle Muff.
Skreddy Zero is a high gain with scooped mids (I believe...).

Skreddy Pig Mine...I have no clue what Muff it is derived from, maybe a Triangle?!? After spending about a week with it, extremely articulate, pronounced, and very "porky".....that is exactly what comes to mind.

I had an Ernie as well. I liked it, but preferred my Mayo so I sold it.

@ sutherland lol, what do you mean by "porky"? I don't think I've ever heard anyone use that term to describe a sound before.

I don't know....:worried

Hmmm...let's see if I can b.s. "Porky" into words: The midrange content in the Pig Mine (to my ears and through my Vox) seems to accentuate the higher frequencies without being overly bright and still being fat and rich.

The other white meat.

Yeah, I was really interested in the ? Lady as well, but so far I feel really satisfied with the Ernie.

Anyone have any problems using theirs live, or does it seem to cut through the mix just fine?

Oh look! This is a thing I can change!

Most of the Skreddy pedals are not based on specific other muff circuits as much as they are based on sounds that Marc was trying to get from a pedal. AFAIK only the Mayonaise is an exact clone of an EHX pedal.
