    thats pretty cool, but i'm not jealous. i have all of those effects plus phaser and delay in one rack. and if you're an analog snob, well i got an MXR phase90 and a vintage MXR flanger.

    actually the big muff has been changed several times over the years, so it depends on which era big muff you got if you wanna say its the best ever. i had an old army- green one which rocked, my friend bought this newere white colored one that i didn't care for. superfuzzes were good dist pedals too. for simple dist though, i stick with the old school ibanez tube screamers

    i have a late 90s black big muff. i had the said green one years ago , but it broke , and me being an idiot got rid of it (35 bux to fix this , nah ill just get a new one...wow im stupid). i am partial to the origional fuzz face that plugged into the body of the guitar. that was a great fuzz.

    what kind of guitar do you have ?

    i am an analog snob, so...

    your rack gear is of no interest to me, but at least you have the MXR gear for redemption.:p

    superfuzz is the shite, i've got one of these:


    best fuzz on the market. the distortion signal is a saw wave as opposed to the square wave in most fuzz pedals.

    as far as the big muff is concerned i haven't come across one that i have liked. i hear the potential for great tone in a muff pi, but i haven't come across the right pedal. the ones i have played seem too compressed.

    i'm more partial to the proco rat myself.


    much better sound than the muff in my opinion. to my ears there seems to be more depth to the tone and level of distortion, even at lower settings.

    the rat is ok... depth is what you want , check out the mesa boogie v-twin. that shit is really fuckin fresh. tubes in a pedal. who would have thought that would be a good idea...

    ive been scheming on a big muff for awhile. ever since i heard thats what they used on "siamese dream" ive been wanting that sound forever.

    until then, ol faithful gets me by...

    oh that boss distortion pedal is bad. just throw it away. get a good old fender or marshall for basic distortion, and if you want extra gain throw in a boss overdrive or an ibanez tubescreamer, or if you want extreme fuzzy distortion, add a big muff, fuzzface, or a superfuzz. thats it. you should get your basic tone from your amp, first and foremest, not a pedal, trust me, when you're on stage you don't wanna fuck with a pedal that changes the your entire tone. your pedals should "enhance" the tone that a good amp shoudl supply.

    yeah i have a shitty ass amp. but , when thats all you can afford , thats what you use.

    that ds1 got me though alot of rough times when my last band was playing together. nice brittle ass no warmth tone. perfect for buzzsaw guitar riffs. but now im more into thrash , and greaser punk , so im actualy looking for tone.

    boss pedals suck...

    seriously. i generally view boss products as tone bombs. not good, but as i already said, i am an analog snob.

    when it comes to the rat, only the vintage model cuts it. all the other models are a bit over done. most people disregard this pedal because it has such a cheesy name, i sure as hell did at first, but when i played it... shit is off the hook.

    i'm sure the mesa boogie sounds nice, but i'm not into paying fourhundred bucks for a stomp box. my rat cost me fifty dollars out the door brand new.

    as far as finding a "siamese dream" big muff, you are going to have to look long and hard* to find one with the right tone. there are a lot of big muffs out there and many of them sound like shit. production practice/quality as well as parts in these boxes varried greatly from year to year.

    that's how sustain punch found their niche in the market:


    "SustainPunch Creamy Dreamer Distortion Sustainer - The Creamy Dreamer was designed to produce smooth, rich, warm distortion, and fuzz. It's ability to make a guitar sustain with a fat and creamy tone has caught the eye of the Smashing Pumpkins', Billy Corgan."

    basically if you want the classic "big muff" or "smashing pumpkins" tone, save your pennies and buy a sustain punch. billy corgan did.
