EHX Double Muff

Classic dual overdrive. The original 1969 plug-in Muff Fuzz had just a touch of overdrive and sounded like a vintage amp with a slightly torn speaker. We paired two of these together in one box to create the Double Muff. Use just one Muff for a hint of milky distortion, or cascade the second Muff for over-the-top overdrive that turns the milk into cream. Two distortions in one!

  1. Interesting, I'd always presumed the double muff was literally two muff fuzzes stuck together but this clearly has more components than that.
    Thanks

    1. I assumed the same and actually put two muff fuzzes in one box cascaded with separate footswitches, it's fairly crazy little focker.

  2. The Muff Fuzz was the first pedal I ever built, I might just build this to see how far my builds have come on since then.

  3. I have one and mine uses 4x 2N5088's, just in case anyone wants to try them out...

  5. Nice, I always wanted to try one of these. I'll probably make this one (although not very soon).

  7. Hi:) Made one few weeks ago with footswitchable muff no2, works perfectly! I'm starting another one and I want to put a BMP tone control only when muff no2 is engaged. I figured it would go where SW3 wire is. Is that right?
    Thanks alot!!

  9. Dear everyone, I plan to build this and make it scream soon. I would like to do it with footswitch for muff2 with led indicator and if possible add a tone control. Does anyone have a picture to share for those mod, any explanation on how to do it? Well adding footcontrol with led is not complicated, I have just difficulties identifying how to know where put the LED so it light when muff2 is actually engaged.
    Real difficultie is regarding Tone control, does anyone ever tried? where would go the modification? Is there any tutorial existing?
    I would like to thanks you for this website, trully wonderfull!

    1. Real question is to know if when you add the BMP Tone control describe for PI Muff, you can still get unity, and where to add this BMP Tone control?!

  11. Used 2n3904 transistor as a substitute for the bc550b, and just realized that the emitter and collector legs are opposite on these....will rearrange and re post....damn ....dumb ass !!!!!
