Founded in 1968 when the now-legendary Mike Matthews quit his day job as an electrical engineer at IBM in favor of building fuzz pedals, Electro-Harmonix has since become one of the most influential brands in effects pedals -- and music in general. Their flagship pedal, the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff
, has seen countless iterations -- and has found its way into some of history's most iconic recordings. Not a one-trick-pony by any means, Electro-Harmonix has mastered every corner of the effects spectrum. From the timeless flange of the Electric Mistress
to the futuristic synth oscillation of the Superego
, there's an Electro-Harmonix pedal for literally any playing style.
Hear about the origins of the Big Muff straight from the source in our exclusive video interview with Electro-Harmonix founder, Mike Matthews:
Electro-Harmonix pedals do not
run on batteries, so you'll need a compatible power supply to start playing with your pedal as soon it arrives! We recommend the versatile Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus.
