The world of guitar effects would a duller place without Electro Harmonix and it's eccentric founder Mike Matthews, creator of the Big Muff. The iconic Big Muff fuzz pedal established their reputation as a serious player in the world of guitar effects. Since launch, the Big Muff series has taken on many forms and re-releases, cementing itself as an industry-standard Fuzz pedal that has helped define rock music in the last 4 decades.
Many famous players have relied on Electro Harmonix pedals over the years. For example, Kurt Cobain infamously used the Big Muff, Echo Flanger, Small Clone, Stereo Polychorus to create a legendary punk rock tone.
Being used by legends like Gilmour, Santana and Billy Corgan, few pedals have become an intrinsic part of players tone the way the EHX Big Muff has.
