Enjoy the builds and please also visit us on Facebook and Twitter, Amazing start on the New Year, Thanks alot for all the great layouts!! The Little Big Muff uses 2N5962 with a Hfe of around 1500 - 2000. Aside from the Big Muff, Electro-Harmonix has made the Nano Muff, the Metal Muff, which has a 3-band EQ and is a distortion; the Little Big Muff, a smaller variation of the current NYC model, the Deluxe Big Muff, the 77/78 op-amp Big Muff, designed by Howard Davis, which uses IC's to create the Fuzz whereas all others, except the Deluxe Big Muff, use transistors. Just watch the pinouts of whatever you try to make sure they match. I don't have any 560pf's. Everything you want to know about Big Muffs with sound clips. +1 What an awesome start to 2013!! Knowing this, we can change the sound of a muff greatly by replacing the transistors. This isn't the first Little Big Muff to appear in the Electro-Harmonix catalogue. 70's Electro Harmonix LITTLE BIG MUFF code EF321. : ), Happy new year!!! Obviously off of the three tone switch wires, but which value do you think would have the best sweep? My early '70s Big Muff Pi Deluxe (the chunky one with both compressor and fuzz circuits, with the blend switch) is still going strong. Thanks. Whether it sounds better or not is in the eye of the beholder, why don't you socket the position and try different values to see what you like. To compare it to a conventional 3 pot Big Muff, the circuit is set up as if having a fuzz pot in the full clockwise rotation, so I suppose Electro Harmonix decided that most people would use it that way, so why not do away with the control and just have it dimed. So if you have good luck, or bad luck for that matter, then please let me know by dropping a comment in the topic. Could a mid switch be wired up like the other muffs here? Here's a collection of vero (stripboard) and tagboard guitar and bass effect layouts that we have put together covering many classic and popular effects in growing numbers. Would 470pf's be OK! Awesome Inc. theme. Overall, an amazing sound. For example, which transistors can be used?
