The JHS Pedals Muffuletta has five of the classic Big Muff fuzz variants in one box!

The Big Muff has been around so long. It’s been on so many classic recordings, and been through so many variations. Every guitarist out there has a favorite version of its iconic tone.

JHS wanted to pay tribute to that undeniably classic fuzz pedal. But they couldn’t come to a consensus about which Muff was king. With the Muffuletta, our indecision is your gain.

We crammed five all-analog re-creations of the pedal’s most beloved tones into this box. We even threw in a JHS-exclusive tone that is our take on the historic stomp. No matter what Big Muff era you prefer, you can get ‘em all in the JHS Muffuletta fuzz pedal.

Six Big Muff Circuits

At the heart of the Muffuletta are five classic Big Muff circuit replicas from years gone by. There is also a new and original JHS version for a total of six Muff models. All executed without any digital signal processing or digital emulation.

Each mode uses real components and values found in the original units. JHS have selected their favorite classic versions from the pages of history and made them available in one small format pedal that is easy to understand, operate and do what it should do… replicate rare, expensive, mythical and sought after versions of this circuit with ease.

JHS Pedals Muffuletta Modes

  • JHS – “2015” – The JHS Muff is a JHS original take on the classic circuit. You will find this version more powerful, less compressed with a more haunting mid range. It is also the best for bass guitar.
  • 73 Rams Head – “1973-1977 V2” The 73 Rams Head gets its name for the strange little elfin looking face that appears on the lower right corner of the pedal. Over the years people nicknamed this unit based on the fact that is looks somewhat like a lamb or animal. Known for having a scooped mid range, less gain and being overall darker. Famous users include David Gilmour (main Pink Floyd recordings), Ernie Isley (Eisly Brothers), and J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.)
  • The Triangle – “1969-1970 V1” The Triangle Muff gets its name from the triangle arrangement of the knobs on the original unit. It has more bottom end and is more articulate. Famous users include Santana, David Gilmour’s Pete Cornish made pedal boards, John Lennon, Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), and possibly Jimi Hendrix.
  • The Pi – “1977-1978 V3” The Pi Muff gets its name from the instantly recognizable red Pi symbol on the top. This is not the NYC version which was released much later in 2000. Known for a more aggressive sound. Famous users include Frank Zappa, Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Jack White, The Edge (U2), Beck, and Pete Townsend (The Who).
  • The Russian – “1999-2009 V8” The Russian Muff gets its name from the “Made in Russia” text found on the back. Known for having less clarity and less low end. Famous users include Dan Auerbach (Black Keys), Chris Wolstenholme (Muse), and Robin Finck (Nine Inch Nails).
  • The Civil War – “1991-1993 V7” The Civil War Muff gets its name from the old style Civil War era font on the enclosure, as well as the navy and grey colors found on many. Known for having more mid range, brighter overall tone and less gain. Famous users include Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), John Fogerty, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Mike Mills and Peter Buck (REM).

Controls

  • Volume: The “Volume” control works just like any other volume control allowing you to adjust the overall output of the pedal to your taste.
  • Tone: The “Tone” control lets you brighten or darken your overall tone.
  • Sustain: The “Sustain” control is best understood as a gain or distortion control as it gives more distortion to the circuit.
  • Mode: The “Mode” control lets you choose from our six different versions of the Big Muff on the fly. Looking at the “Mode” control you will see six icons around the lower 50% of the knob. Let’s take a look at each mode and why they made the cut to be in the ultimate Big Muff tribute.
