  • 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.

TECH TALK:

The secret to the D&S’ smooth tone and natural response lies in two areas of its circuit.  First, the Hi boost/Hi cut Tone control retains low end response while adding top-end clarity to notes.  Next, high-grade, low noise Toshiba 2SC1815 transistors offer more intense distortion with minimal noise and signal degradation.

The D&S features buffered, JFET bypass switching with a low impedance output, allowing it to drive long cable lengths or other effect units without loss of signal.
