NYC Big Muff Reissue making me sad
I don't know if its my hearing but lately I've felt that my vintage reissue rat (w/ lm308) sounds pretty darn close as my muff (i did some of beraduur's mods) but let me first go through my setup
standard tele->rat->muff->vox ac4tv on 4w volume at 330 looking from front
i have my muff settings: volume 9:00, tone 1:00, sustain 1:00
rat settings: gain 9:00, tone 2:00, volume dimed
i dont like putting the volume very high on the muff, it just gets too mushy. also, i feel like the muff doesnt have that much volume?? with the volume dimed it just gets mushy and notes kinda get inaudible behind a wall of mush. is that wall of mush THE muff sound? i can get my rat to sound like a muff with more clarity and bite.
i dunno what to do, it seems like the muff likes amps with headroom which my vox doesn't. ive owned the muff for years and loved it in the beginning but i was running it through a fender frontman 25r solid state. it had a HUGE wall of sound not the wall of mush that it has become now.
what are some settings you guys use for the muff?
