It really depends what you're going for. If I could find an amp that gives me the gains I want at the volume I want, I probably wouldn't use pedals.

Besides, a fuzz like a big muff is nothing you'll get out of an amp.

oh i know all about the muff sound, i think it's thin and crispy.

and are you running all of this in front of a fender? is that you that i was talking with with the fender combo?

all those pedals HAVE to suck your tone dry

i personally think it's a lackluster fuzz effect. although i'm an amp snob, my model T gets some sick sick fuzz tone, and if you listen to anything off of the OM records, their fuzz is all tube driven straight from Al's amp.

my dry tone is the same as it is guitar to amp, and the muff is fucking ridiculous. it's seriously hte best distortion i've ever played with in my life. i love it.

If you run a nice blend of buffers and true bypass pedals, it's no worse than running an extra long cable. In some cases, the buffers can give you a better signal.

His modded Big Muff is going to be true bypass, meaning the switch switches between the circuit and a centimeter long piece of wire.

Also.. muff sound.. THIN? Muffs are anything but thin. The high end can be a bit much, but you should probably run the tone at around 10 o clock anyway.

Sorry to keep being a bastard.

McNugget, I'd put the Whammy first to keep the tracking cleaner. I also wouldn't run a delay before gain, but it depends on what you're going for.

What pedals do you have exactly?

the whammy is second on my chain. and i keep the distortion before the last delay so that i can set loops in clean and play over top of it in distortion, or vise versa.

i have two digitech digidelays, a danelectro dan echo(not the shitty one named after food), a boss oc-3, an mxr blue box, and a whammy. i'll soon be adding a line 6 fm-4. my shit is heavy as fuckkkkkk.

Lots of delay and you seem to dig fuzz.

The PB&J delay is actually a really nice sounding delay. Just a lame enclosure.

I'd be curious to hear what you're playing.

I've just never heard a muff described as thin. The high end definitely gets to be a bit much, but it's got a HUGE low end. No mids, but a simple mod to add a mid knob does wonders. Even a couple components swapped out with give a better tonestack.
