    Short of a Pete Cornish, I like my Modestmikesmods BM.

    He does the Complete Cornish Mod to the pedal, and also a better power supply.

    Send him your Muff, or he has them for sale.

    Wow, lots of useful info in this thread. I'm still leaning toward the Thorpy, but will be looking into the ARC Effects and also the SUF pedals mentioned here. I guess no one has any experience with the Greer Amps Tarpit, which sounded really good in the demos I've seen.

    I really liked the EHX Big Muff I had.

    Man it's weird hearing such a confident MAN's voice coming out of the mouth of a kid.

    I did my Muff shootout and this is the one that stayed. I have no desire to try any other muffs.

    I am currently loving the EQD Hoof. The EHX deluxe big muff is super awesome if you don't mind how huge it is. The EHX bass nano big muff is a sleeper clone of the green russian.

    Just for the records Robert Keeley Fuzz Head isn't a muff. But it's a nice fuzz in its own right.
    As for my muff preferences the Noel Cornet is my favorite one.



    Some other cool big muffs that I like (in no particular order):
    - SUF Red Menance
    - Mojo Hand BMP-1
    - Ronsound Hairpie Classic (Triangle)
    - Skreddy Giant Meat Pie BC239

    I'm yet to try Buffalo FX muffs but I'm sure they must be top notch stuff.

    I have an Emanating Fist Dope Priest, Castledine V2 and a Noel Cornet Revu. All great muffs.

    I'd love to get a Noel Cornet, but methinks the folks recommended one missed the "currently available" bit in the title.

    It's already on your list. The Tri Pie '70 is the best I've heard. It's big, it's fluffy, and it works equally well for blazing Gilmour lead tones or huge Pumpkins chord progressions.

    I've tried a lot of great muffs since I bought the Tri Pie years ago and it continues to take all comers.
