Big Knob Pedals presents "Creamy Pi"

An exact circuit and component replica of what many view as Electro-Harmonix’s best Big Muff ever: the Sovtek Russian-produced “Green Russian”. This classic pedal coupled with a tasty modification entitled the “Creamy Dreamer Mod” was - as legend would have it - what inspired Billy Corgan and supplied that luscious Smashing Pumpkins distortion in his masterful “Siamese Dream” album. Other “big” Big Muff proponents have included David Gilmour, Kurt Cobain, and Jack White of the White Stripes; all of whom have made the “Muff “ an integral part of their sound.

100% hand-wired and made with all quality components including a solid die-cast Hammond case, Electro-Harmonix heavy-duty 3PDT true bypass footswitch, all Big Knob pedals are guaranteed for life.

A Sovtek Green Russian circuit with an added "Creamy Dreamer" mod, this pedal produces a more hi-gain fuzz tone than stock muffs. The Dreamer was once widely believed to be the "Siamese Dream" tone. While that assertion has since been disproved (Corgan actually performed on a stock 1977 opamp version - see our I.C.B.M.) it remains one of the most popular muff mods ever. By grounding emitters of the two gain stage transistors, the level of fuzz and sustain is increased substantially and this remains hugely popular with grunge, alt blues and garage-rock guitarists alike.
