Electro-Harmonix Releases the Deluxe Big Muff Pi

Electro-Harmonix Releases the Deluxe Big Muff Pi

The Deluxe Big Muff Pi features a foot-switchable MIDS Section that enables the user to tailor their midrange.

Long Island City, NY (May 20, 2014) -- EHX’s new Deluxe Big Muff is a re-imagined version of the classic Big Muff Pi. Long revered for its sweet singing tone and violin-like sustain, the classic three-knob Big Muff has helped define the sound of rock guitar for over 44 years. Now EHX has added a selection of carefully chosen extra features for those who yearn for more sound shaping control.

In addition to delivering all the definitive sounds of the original, the Deluxe Big Muff Pi features a foot-switchable MIDS Section that enables the user to tailor their midrange and really cut through the mix. Its Frequency knob allows you to vary the center frequency of the EQ while the Level control sets the boost or cut amount. A High/Low Q switch selects a wider or narrower bandwidth around the boost or cut frequency.

A Noise gate with an adjustable Gate control eliminates noise and hum while preserving the player’s attack and original tone. An adjustable Attack control adds punch and clarity to single notes and chords while a two-position switch provides a normal or bass boost mode, when greater bottom end is desired.

The new Deluxe Big Muff Pi is also equipped with an Expression Pedal input that lets the musician sweep the MIDS’ frequency in real time, with their foot.

The pedal features True Bypass for maximum signal path integrity. It is housed in a solid die-cast package, comes equipped with a 9Volt battery, can be powered by an optional standard 9.6-Volt/DC200mA AC adapter and carries a U.S. list price of $159.54.
