Concentrate well graoux hairy.
A knob volume, gain knob, a selector 3 levels to dig mediums.
It is NOT true bypass, contrary to what is indicated on the manufacturer's website but buffered bypass. This is also clearly stated in the corrected and paper sheet / manual that came with the box.
Electroharmonix is ​​really not clear the top.


No finesse or versatility, it is not made for it.
This is a pedal that specializes in metal and filled his role perfectly.


It was expected the sound directly, no fuss, the selector is quite effective mediums I find and can adapt more significant instrument / target group.

on the other hand there is a concern, even inactivated this pedal I do not eat a lot of signal. It stifles the high frequency and I know that a few strokes of a pick if I put in my board or not ...
Therefore obliged Loop box if you want to use in addition to other effects / clear sound.


Good print quality, the grain of the saturation is really terrible.
For 38 €, there is a very good value hair / price.
Only drawback, the acute loss of signal in bypass, so add 50 € for a loop box.

Quality materials used in Tubescreamer

Distortion pedal for cheap high quality and very simple.
EQ: 3 position with a cutting the EQ, the other two being "cut" of certain frequencies.
Also: a true bypass, which is very very very well! It can integrate a series of pedals without fear of rot sound, which is very important in my opinion.

Rating: Excellent because it is one of those pedals extremely simple and can be valuable in the studio, to find the little piece of fat is missing or some attack, a raucous ...


I use it in boost, before entry into the amp (60W Fryette Deliverance).

Concerning the equalization is not very useful, because the sound is much better when they put it on off. After, to fetch some frequencies, in my opinion it is better to do on the amp.

At first I'm going to use it for solos.


Like everything, good sound is a succession of good elements. So it would be foolish to expect it to do all the work. But by putting the input of a very good amp, it really does sth very very good, it's MORE. So she finds it place between some very good elements.

on the other hand, for me it does not sound metal but more kind of a big rock that task, excellent for playing Black Label Sausage (désolé. ..). There are ways to feel like good old Zakk, it's bold but it's good!

I have a lot compared to the Xotic BB Preamp from home I also (excellent stuff, really!), Who does not play at all in the same category as the BB is a pedal to 210 € whose ambitions are far greater. But anyway, the Metal Muff is very far from being ridiculous! Instead, it brings something differently. The BB is much cleaner (Tubescreamer always used), it does not transform the sound, it provides just enough where you have (I'm a fan of this pedal). The Metal Muff, she colors the sound, but a very interesting way.


The name is laugh, but its use is generally great fun! Of very good stuff, which I was certainly not cost much since I offered it, but I would have bought if I had been screened. The price is anyway really surprising given the quality of the machine.

Big personality

By Captain Danny, 15/05/2012
High gain distortion pedal analog.

In one, an out, a 9V power supply input.

True Bypass.


There is no simple, one volume knob and a knob for gain. As an EQ, a 3-position switch determines the character of mid scoop, only option for an equalizer.

The manual is superfluous.

The sound editing could not be easier.


The EHX Metal Muff Distortion signed a distortion with a big personality, which sounds very organic and relatively warm, even at high gain. The sound at low gain, approaching an overdrive pushed to its entrenchment is very catchy. We have a good running efficiency of gain knob, except on the last third where one is already in too big of her to have some significant differences.

We really regret the absence of potential equalization is really missing a distortion of this quality and mid scoop is in my opinion not decisive or effective, you lose the whole aspect furious big disto burnée and well in the activating a switch short little use.


I used it for a while and have tried many other models.
What I like about her is simply the sound! This is the best feature of this pedal.

The price / quality ratio is excellent, as often with EHX.

I just love his sound I offered myself for the MetalMuff standard features that I missed on this one but keep this particular sound, and too bad for the position it takes on board my little ...

It could not be simpler.


Pedal sounds "hairy" but also that fits the single coils.
Sounds very compressed and very saturated and oriented metal current ancien.Je appreciate better ryhtmique.Le small switch allows to play with the medium.


I use it occasionally to let off steam.
The value is good as always with EHX
