So it's been a while now I've been playing around my board and like all of you, I've been on my personal tonequest to see what was my thing vs ... the artists I idolize ... And as pedals have come and gone I've always kept my Big Muff around, but as the '' final '' board started taking shape ... I progressively became aware of my love for low gain transparent pedals and my increasing distate for pedals that just send everything to gain-kingdom-come. Maybe it was reflection on my playing, as a player who listens to allot of Sonic Youth, Explosions in the sky, Kings of Conveniance, Boards of Canada, Stereolab etc ... etc ... I realized I was using the Muff less and less ... even some of my '' Gilmour '' tone admiration spilled over into the Cornish G-2 and it's more of a lite Muff tone with a taste of Germanium OD ... So eventually the Muff came off all together and in comes a Marshall Bluesbreaker to play with my Reeves Custom Amp Next thing you know I have a board full of lite OD's and Delay pedals, and gone is my taste for 90's Disto ... Anyone here go through the same process ? I noticed going through the Pedal-board thread, few of you actually use Muffs !
