    Blend dial lets you fuzz up your bass, without killing your dynamics
    Get the massive bass fuzz tone you want, without sacrificing the dynamics and definition you can't afford to lose, with the Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi. That's because electro-harmonix added a long-requested blend control to the classic Bass Big Muff Pi, which lets you mix dry signal back in with its distortion effect.

    Crossover controls provide everything you need to sculpt the perfect bass fuzz
    No one saw the Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi's crossover controls coming. The variable lowpass filter lets you round off the dry low-frequency signal, freeing up space for high-frequency fuzz. The variable highpass filter, on the other hand, pulls lows out of the fuzz, removing the mud from your fuzz tone. And to top it all off, the entire crossover section on the electro-harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi is footswitchable, allowing you to dramatically shift your tone in real time.

    The output options you need for studio and stage alike
    When electro-harmonix built the Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi, they had a pretty good idea that serious bass players like you would want to use this stompbox both live onstage and in the recording studio. That's why they hooked it up with three separate outputs. The parallel 1/4" output lets you send just your dry signal back to your monitor or onstage amplifier. On the other side of the Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi, you'll find both a standard 1/4" output for your main amp and a balanced XLR out for running direct to the PA or into a recording interface.

    Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Bass Big Muff Fuzz Features:

    • A awesome version of ehx's classic bass fuzz effect updated to meet the demands of modern bass players
    • Switchable 0dB/-10dB input provides compatibility with both passive and active pickups
    • Blend control lets you mix the direct and distorted signal to taste
    • Take complete control of your output signal and sound with three outputs: a 1/4" effect out, a 1/4" direct (buffered dry) out, and an XLR DI out
    • Sculpt your sound with the foot-switchable crossover section, featuring a variable lowpass filter on the dry signal and a variable highpass filter on the distorted signal
    • Control unwanted noise at any level with the built-in noise gate

I wish I had tried this a long time ago

I have been playing 35+ yrs, but only relatively recently got heavily into effects. I have tried many, many . . . MANY . . . overdrives, distortions and fuzzes in the past 3-4 years. In general I come to the same conclusion every time. OD and fuzz really aren’t for me. I’m more of a distortion guy. Just a little creamy distortion blended into the top of a clean signal. Just enough to add some grind so you know it’s there. I don’t doom, I don’t stoner, I don’t sludge rock. I mostly worship, country, and blues. So I don’t need anything extreme. Anything more than some subtle grind is just for fun and headphone jamming.

Well, most all of the dirt pedals I’ve tried have left me wanting or just haven’t been for me. I recently totally impulse bought a fuzz just because I could, and though it was fantastic, it also left me wanting for any sort of tone I might actually use in my real world experiences. But it was enough to get me interested in fuzzes again, and I did some research.

20 YouTube videos later, enter the DBMM. I had written off EHX after a few negative experiences with their pedals. I have tried so many "higher end" (ie more expensive) distortions, OD's and fuzzes, that I thought this couldn't possibly compare, given the relatively low price, and it was bound to leave me wanting like the rest of them. But I figured cheap as it was, it was worth a shot.

I gotta say, this is pretty darn good. It’s exactly what I’m looking for. It can do extreme wall of fuzz if I ever want or need that, but the crossover makes it highly versatile. I can dial the sustain back to about 2:30 and add just a bit of grind to the top of my signal. Roll the blend back up and the HPF down just a bit, and it’s a bit more fuzzy. The LPF on the clean blend side helps the two sides to blend together really, really well, as opposed to a full clean blend, which can leave the two signals sounding disjointed (though a full clean blend is still available with this pedal, even if you still use the HPF on the distortion side). And it definitely grinds. With the HPF on the distortion rolled up to about 2:00, it reminds me of that screaming, singing, ringing midrange distortion I got out of the EBS Billy Sheehan Signature. The gate of the DBMM also works swimmingly for killing any noise that might come from the distortion itself, or from my single-coil jazz bass hum. And unlike most other distortion/drive pedals I’ve tried, I don’t feel the need to run this one through an external blend pedal to make it sound good. With the LPF on the clean blend, it sounds fantastic all by itself.

Only two cons so far:
1) It’s a little large for what it does. I suppose that’s justified for the amount of controls you get, but it’s way bigger than I expected it to be.
2) I have zero need for the DI out. That makes no sense to me on this pedal. I cannot see any circumstance under which I would show up at a gig with just this pedal and run a DI out of it to the board. Ever. But maybe somebody would.
