Electro-Harmonix has just released a reissue of the venerable 1978 Op Amp era Big Muff Pi - and who better to demo it than the man who helped the value of the original examples soar - Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins! Check out the video demo above from our friends at Reverb.com, or keep reading for more info on this great pedal.
The new Op-Amp Big Muff is based on the original "IC" or "V4" Big Muff. The original circuit has been faithfully reproduced, with modern enhancements that won't impact the tone of the pedal, including true bypass switching and a die-cast chassis.
As the name implies, this pedal relies on op-amps instead of transistors for it's distortion sounds, and 3 gain stages as opposed to the 4 found in most Big Muffs. It features the classic "Sustain, Tone, and Volume" controls and a Tone toggle switch to bypass the tone circuit.
This pedal is arriving soon at The Music Zoo - contact us today and reserve one before they are gone!
