This review is for the readily available Lil' Big Muff reissue. I paid seventy bucks for mine new. I love this thing!!! Ninety percent of the time I run a Sirkut WNG into it and right out into either a Death metal or my Metal Maniac and damn it is crushing. I find that I pretty much don't ever fuck with this pedal, it's more a set and forget deal. I have it cranked , if I do play with it I only use the tone Knob. I love this pedal , I might get a regular size Big Muff one of these days and do a comparison but for now this lil' bitch is adding some major filth to my walls!!!!!
Good Points: Not too expensive
Retard easy to use
looks cool and is built like a tank
runs off any nine volt adaptor
for walls this thing is amazing!!!!
Bad Points: Trying to get to the battery is amazingly difficult, you practically have to take the whole pedal apart!

it's a pretty good pedal. i think i liked my black russian Muff more, but this was really good. it had more bite and was a little bassier. i got kind of bored of it eventually, and traded it for a DOD Death Metal. i like the Death Metal better since I've already got other fuzzes. a little disappointed. i want to tryout a Bass Big Muff.

This review is for the recent reissue of the Little Big
Muff with three knobs (volume, tone, sustain) in the
die cast XO case.
I enjoy the amount of low end and rumbling distortion
that comes through this pedal in both a feedback loop
and with an external sound source. Also, with the
sustain knob all the way up, you can create ringing,
chiming fuzz with very little input from a pick-up or
Currently, I use this after a Boss DS-1 in a feedback
loop. For the most part, I use the two to manage the
low end and high end sounds respectively.
In terms of durability, the case seems to be a big
improvement over the full size Big Muff Pi reissues.
Good Points: more durable case than the full size Big Muff
warm fuzz and sustain
great for managing the low end in a feedback loop
Bad Points: can sound too compressed with the tone and sustain
knobs both up fairly high

I have a 1979 model. Awesome sound: more compressed than USA Big Muff, but less harsh than the russian one.
Great volume boost.
The tone selector let you to choose from bass sound or treble sound.
Mine has been modded 'cause I wanted a true bypass.
Now it's perfect.
Good Points: -the sound of the best Muff in a small pedal
