All guitarists are in search of that “tone” whether it’s a rock legend that they want to copy or just the quest for the perfect tone that raises the hair on their back. “Tone” is something that can’t really even be described. It’s a combination of so many minutely, user-dependant, changes in sound that it can never really be achieved. Even fi you use Stevie Ray Vaughn’s guitar, his amps and pedals, the “tone” will still be different because of how you pick the strings, how heavy your fingers press down, what type of strings you’re using, the weather, the roomtype, the mic…. and on and on.

Electro Harmonix’s Big Muff Fuzz Pedal is such a legendary effect. All the sustain and distortion you can want for metal or roll back the levels and get a nice dirty blueshouse sound. Looking around I found a site that has a ton of info about fuzz boxes, including the Big Muff and a ton of other pedals. He even goes as far as mappng out the PCB, schematics and component layout, which is genius and is so helpful to make your own pedal clones, or just to have the info for modifying your current pedal.

You can use this patch to get that deep bassy funk sound like James Jamerson or Donald Dunn. It’s great for covering almost any funk, R&B, MoTown or most rock songs from the 60’s-70’s. It’s setup using a DI box or headphones, so depending on the amp and cab you are using, you will probably have to tweak the EQ on the BP-200 a bit to keep from overpowering your setup.
