Fuzz as a tone has become so ubiquitous that many millenials grow up thinking that's just what an electric guitar sounds like. Even beginning guitarists who have their own gear and a year or two under their belts eventually have a eureka moment when they discover that fuzz is a separate effect from just turning up their amp or using an overdrive. Fuzz tones owe a lot of their omnipresence to classic recordings that defined the '60s and '70s, and the stompbox behind many of those recordings was the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi.

What started with the Fuzzrite and Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face in the mid-1960s eventually snowballed into a complete paradigm shift of how rock guitar should sound, spearheaded in large part by the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff through the 1970s. Up through 2000, the Big Muff went through no less than seven main versions, each with its own circuit variations and idiosyncrasies. Kit Rae, the reigning expert on all things Big Muff, has spent half a lifetime researching and describing the design changes and history.
