Electro-Harmonix took everyone's favorite fuzz pedal and added a bit more versatility and tone control. With the Tone-Wicker control you can somewhat lift the blanket from the Muff-style fuzz tone and bring in a lot more definition in the treble frequencies. Everything you love about the Big Muff with just a bit more juice in the treble range, giving you more definition and cut in a full band mix.
Condition: "Like New". Near Mint with minor surface scuffing, original box included.
The BIG MUFF Pi with TONE WICKER is an effects pedal designed to deliver all of the sonic power of the legendary Big Muff Pi while providing user editing capabilities that are unique to the Tone Wicker design. Wicker mode opens up the high frequency bandwidth of your distortion sound delivering a top end that is new and exciting. The Tone switch, when set to OFF, defeats the Big Muff’s Tone knob yielding an extremely powerful distortion with a fire breathing new Big Muff Pi character.
- CONTROLS -
Sustain knob - As in the original Big Muff Pi, adjusts the amount of sustain and distortion.
Tone Knob - The Tone knob allows the musician to dial in just the right setting between deep bass and high treble.
Volume Knob - The volume knob sets the overall output level of the effect.
Wicker Switch - Activate Wicker mode by flipping the Wicker switch up to the ON position where the high frequency bandwidth is opened up for a bright and clear top end. Set the Wicker switch to OFF to obtain the classic Big Muff Pi sound.
Tone Switch - The Tone switch allows the user to activate the Tone knob or to completely bypass the tone circuitry. When the Tone switch is set to ON, the Tone knob is active, just like a standard Big Muff. When the Tone switch is set to OFF, the Tone knob and all of its circuitry is bypassed. This setting yields a totally new Muff distortion with a powerful drive and uncolored gain. High output with attitude. Please Note: When the Tone switch is set to OFF, turning the Tone knob will produce no change to your sound. In addition, it is normal for the output volume of your Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker to increase when moving the Tone switch from ON to OFF. Status LED - When the LED is lit; the BMPTW effect is active. When the LED is off, the BMPTW is in True Bypass mode. The Footswitch toggles between effect and bypass modes.
INPUT Jack - This 1/4” jack is the audio input to the BMPTW. The input impedance presented at this jack is 130 kO.
OUTPUT Jack - This 1/4” jack is the audio output from the BMPTW. When the BMPTW is in Bypass mode, the OUTPUT jack is connected directly to the INPUT jack.
9V Power Jack - The Big Muff with Tone Wicker is battery powered. You may use an external AC Adapter power supply instead of the battery. Connect the AC Adapter’s plug to the 9V Power Jack at the top of the BMPTW. The power jack’s polarity is center negative. The BMPTW requires a clean 9VDC power supply at 50mA. We recommend the Electro-Harmonix US96DC-200BI power supply.
