Electro-Harmonix Issues the Triangle Big Muff Pi Pedal

Electro-Harmonix Triangle Big Muff Pi PedalElectro-Harmonix’s flagship Big Muff pedal line is getting a new addition – or rather an old one. The original Version 1 Big Muff, aka the Triangle Big Muff, has been reissued in a new and more pedalboard-friendly version. The stompbox’s circuit board is faithful to the original 1969 effect.

“The Big Muff Pi is the pedal we are best known for so I wanted to commemorate EHX’s 50th Anniversary (1968-2018) by re-releasing V1, the very first Big Muff that started it all,” founder Mike Matthews explains. “Original pedals are now selling for hundreds of dollars and this reissue absolutely nails that creamy, violin-like sustain and musical tone at a price a working musician can afford.”

The original Volume, Sustain, and Tone knobs are intact while a few modern conveniences were added: an LED status indicator, true bypass switching, and the option for 9-volt battery operation.

The Electro-Harmonix Triangle Big Muff Pi is available now with a street price of $99.
