BYOC LARGE BEAVER PDF

So we decided to investigate for ourselves. We sampled dozens of vintage Big Muffs and recorded the component values for dozens of specimens. We then compiled the data to determine what the average value or closest to a standard component value was for each component. This gives us a far better idea of what the intended component values should be and a tone that is more consistently familiar.

If any of you have ever built any pedals, you can understand how satisfying, and addictive it can be. For both seasoned and novice effects builders, there is a special place for that first pedal that ever graced your unscratched workbench. Yeah it was a mess, it may have had noise issues, pots may have been wired in backwards, and it looked like an octopus orgy on the inside, but nothing can truly best that first pedal.

It was the first time I ever soldered a project of that size, and the first time I was exposed to resistors, transistors, and capacitors as building blocks for the sounds I know and love. I spent many hours soldering, cursing, de-soldering, and soldering again until I finally plugged it in. The sound that came from it I will remember to this day, and until now it is the standard by which how I measure all Muffs.

Since then, I have owned several Muffs, and played through countless iterations of those little beasties. As you can imagine, I am a huge fan of BYOC, and I was very excited to try out its new line of mini pedals, straight off the assembly line. They look more or less the same to their big brothers, just shrunken down a bit with a few tweaks to the circuit. Like I mentioned above, this pedal is quite a bit smaller than its counterparts, coming it at around the size of a Mooer pedal a Hammond A for you pedal nerds out there.

The pots and footswitch are soldered directly to the PCB, which both saves space and makes it easier by cutting out the wiring that can sometimes be complicated for beginners. On the front we have the standard Volume, Tone, and Sustain pots, which work like any other Big Muff. Most Big Muff tone controls are either too dark, boomy, or honky. It leaves just enough space for the all-important crispy top end to shine through.

Where this Mini Muff differs from the rest is in its feel and response. It honestly feels more like a bright, Muff style overdrive than a traditional wall-of-sound that Big Muffs tend to be. Since I was expecting a wall-of-sound Big Muff, this bothered me a bit initially.

I found myself going towards faster interludes and blues licks rather than the massive riffs and deep soloing that Muffs usually command.

In addition to the different feel, this Big Muff was also dead silent; you could hear a pin drop with the Sustain cranked all the way. This is very unusual even for the most boutique of Big Muffs, so I donned my monocle and started to do a bit of tonal investigating.

After playing an open note, even with the Sustain cranked all the way, the strong note would fizzle out after two or three seconds. My guess is that there is some sort of noise gate or noise suppression circuit in this pedal, which in my opinion is ultimately detrimental to Muffs.

Crispy high end, sculpted mids, and big bottom. Lots of great crunch, reactive to your pick attack, and dead silent. Noise suppression kills sustain, and overdrive response may not win the hearts of Muff purists. Your email address will not be published. The sustain is being limited by the R3 resistor value 43 Kohms , which biases the first transistor stage. Increasing this value to Kohms significantly improves the saturation and sustain of the pedal.
