so lesson is muff likes big amps? clean amps with tons of headroom? how does the muff sound through amps like orange or marshalls?
I wouldn't say you need a big amp but you need a bit more head room than 4 watts. Sounds great on my orange tiny terror, and my bandmaster. When I use it on the orange I generally have it on 15 watts and very little break up. This sound pretty fat and woolly. On my bandmaster it's tone really shines through mostly due to the headroom.
The main thing is it's just too saturated on an amp that size, that was built to get distorted at low volumes.
