Electro-Harmonix Germanium 4 Big Muff Pi Distortion Pedal

The classic sound of the Germanium transistor gets an upgrade with this versatile and authentic-sounding distortion pedal, inspired by the EHX Big Muff Pi.

Combining four classic germanium transistors, the Germanium Big Muff Pi is the result of a focused modern design dripping with Electro-Harmonix analog heritage. Independent overdrive and distortion sections each have their own sets of two NKT275 Germanium transistors as well as independent controls. The ability to stack and use both the overdrive and distortion together delivers the power of a four germanium transistor circuit with ultimate control flexibility.

Very nice pedal hard to adjust noise with distortion. I am using it with a fender champion 100 amp. If you want the nosie to chill out I have to use a separate power source and a nosie reducer pedal. You can a wide range of distortion out of this pedal plus really great overdrive. The really cool feature is on distortion side volts you can make some really cool nosies.
