Classic 70’s Transistor Distortion
High Gain with long sustain & low noise
Retains note definition, even with chords
Sounds like a tighter, more refined Big Muff
The EH Big Muff Pi defined the guitar tones of the 70’s and then re-defined them in the 90’s. Yet for all its legendary pedigree, the Pi of today is a far cry from the triangle knobs and ram’s heads that came before it.
Originally released in 1974, the D&S Distortion & Sustainer creates the same silky, compressed fuzz that those vintage Muffs are famous for. Yet where Muffs have a tendency to “blanket” your original guitar tone, the D&S retains more of the original sound and feel of your instrument and amp.
By using hand-selected low-noise transistors, the D&S actually offers more gain than a vintage Black & Red, yet with a lower noise floor. That’s right – MORE distortion with LESS noise.
The smooth EQ sweep of the D&S Tone control covers a frequency range that is narrower yet more useful than the Pi’s – This tighter, more focused EQ provides superior note definition, even when playing chords.
The combination of these elements gives the D&S the ability to produce huge amounts of distortion with minimal alteration to your guitar’s tone.
One big wall of raw, grungy nastiness in a box – the D&S takes the sound of the greatest vintage Muff and turns it up to 11.
