What if the Green Russian was the first version of the Big Muff and not the Triangle.

This was made using the same type of vintage parts in original Triangle muffs but keeping all the values of the Civil War and making it in a Triangle-era enclosure.

I used the same type of resistors and capacitors found in the early pedals along with the same type of transistors.

Using vintage parts gives the Green Russian a bit more clarity throughout the tone and a slight crispness to the fuzz while retaining the full, low-end and grit of the original.

Here's another "What if...?" pedal, the 1973 Ram's Head V1 the "Brick Muff."

Inside you will find the same type of resistors, capacitors and transistors found in the early Triangle muffs and put in a Triangle-era enclosure.

This version of the Ram's Head is like a mix of "Violet" gain and Russian Muff darkness.
The "Brick Muff" has excellent string clarity, punchy attack on the notes and a lot of harmonics and sustain.

What if the Civil War was the first version of the Big Muff and not the Triangle.

I decided to make a Civil War using the same vintage parts in the original Triangle muffs but keeping all the values of the Civil War and making it in a Triangle-era enclosure.

I used the same type of resistors and capacitors found in the early pedals along with the same type of transistors.

Using these parts gives the Civil War a slightly different feel to it. The fuzz is warmer, clearer and the tone still has the low end but it is a clearer and smoother low end but has amazing clarity.

Blem - has a small error on theorange outline near the top right screw.

Due to the nature of the stainless steel used for the enclosures there may be some imperfections in the enclosure and in the finish.

Vintage Edition pedals are made using the most accurate and original type of parts I can find. With it becoming more difficult to find vintage parts, I am only to make these pedals in small amounts.

The 1972 V6 Tri-Muff is a favorite among muff users and it is the defining sound of the 1972 muff pedals.

The tone of the 1972 V6 combines bassy low-end with a gritty, wooly fuzz on chords and a sweet smoothness on leads.

The pedal has a lot of clarity between the strings and yields tons of rich harmonics.

What if the Violet Ram's Head was the first version of the Big Muff and not the Triangle.

I know this isn't a huge stretch, as the Ram's Head came out three years after the Triangle, but I decided to make one using the same type of parts in the original Triangle and making it in a Triangle-era enclosure.

I used the same type of resistors and capacitors found in the early pedals along with the same type of transistors.

Using these parts gives the Ram's Head a little more open tone and some very slight grit in the fuzz.

The tone of the pedal is still balanced and warm like the original 1975 Violet Ram's Head.

What if... the 1977 Op-Amp Big Muff was the first pedal.

This one is a mix of vintage parts. I used the same type of resistors as in the original Big Muffs but, since this uses op-amps, I found the same exact ones that were used in the 1977 pedals.

I am also using the same, rare, big blue, input capacitor found in many of the first op-amp pedals.

The velcro-like, fuzz tone is perfect for monstrous chords and cutting, full lead tones. Dialing back the gain will give you a little more control for warm sound.

What if... the early 80's Black and Red muffs were the first pedals.

The 1980-1984 muffs have a really great sound to them. They have an open tone like the 1976 Ram's Head pedals but certain part changes give these a warmer tone and a distortion-like fuzz that sounds amazing. The gain on low notes is full and chunky yet clear and allows the sound of the strings to cut through. Lead notes are warm with a soft sustain and harmonics.

The 2247 Ram's Head is a very rare and different type of muff pedal as it has lower gain and a grittier fuzz tone.

The original pedal uses very large, green, ceramic capacitors that contributes to its unique sound and I am using the same exact capacitors in the 2247.

The low notes have a bassy, grit that is great for rhythm playing and the lead notes have a warm, saggy punch with nice harmonics.

The pedal really shines when you use it with a slightly, dirty amp for huge fuzz tone and it stacks well with other pedals.

Due to the voltages the ceramic capacitor can handle USE 9 VOLTS ONLY with this pedal.
