Made a comparison vid between what I think are the two most appealing big muff circuits. The black russian muff is one of the ones in the large enclosures and the same circuit as a bubble font muff. The other is a v5 op amp muff. Probably have to sell the russian muff, so I thought I'd do a comparison video.
Both sound cool, but certainly different. The op amp version has this stodgy, saturated midrange (I refer to it as 'syrupy'), which can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you're using it for. The Russian sounds a little less saturated, but has a nice open-sounding bottom end. I can see why those ones are popular with bassists. I'll have to get one sometime.
TBH though I expect to collect a clone of all the muff versions, because they sound so different depending on the situation or amp you're using.
Although my pedal is a violet rams head on one side and russian on the other. I do have the op amp one as a seperate pedal and a more modern one with the tone circuit modded. Muffs have such a variety it is hard to just pick one.
