The reissued pedal features an LED to indicate effect status, true bypass switching, and the option of being powered by a 9-volt AC adapter.

New York, NY (September 6, 2018) -- Electro-Harmonix has reissued the original Version 1 Big Muff dubbed the Triangle Big Muff because of the layout of its volume, sustain and tone controls. The pedal is a faithful recreation of the original circa 1969 circuit now housed in a pedalboard friendly, die cast chassis.

According to Electro-Harmonix founder, Mike Matthews, “The Big Muff Pi is the pedal we are best known for so I wanted to commemorate EHX’s 50th Anniversary (1968-2018) by re-releasing V1, the very first Big Muff that started it all. Original pedals are now selling for hundreds of dollars and this reissue absolutely nails that creamy, violin-like sustain and musical tone at a price a working musician can afford.”

The Triangle Big Muff features the following nods to convenience: an LED to indicate effect status, true bypass switching and the option of being powered by a 9-volt AC adapter. It comes equipped with a 9V battery, is available now and carries a U.S. street price of $99.00

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
