The Electro-Harmonix Little Big Muff Reissue is simply a smaller version of the Big Muff Pi.  It contains the same circuitry and everything.  The pedal is an analog one, with standard 1/4 inch connections for both input and output.  It can be powered by nine volt power supply and isn't rackable as it is a stomp box.

UTILIZATION

The Electro-Harmonix Little Big Muff Reissue has the most basic parameters for a distortion pedal possible.  You've simply got parameters for sustain, tone, and volume.  The sustain is awesome as it really does add a whole bunch of sustain to your tone, which is overall probably my favorite part of this pedal.  Unless you are an absolute beginner, I don't think that you need to have the manual to figure out how to use this pedal.


SOUND QUALITY

I have used the Electro-Harmonix Little Big Muff Reissue in the recording studio mostly with a '76 Fender Twin Reverb combo amp and a Fender Stratocaster.  I'm overall very pleased with the tones that I'm able to get within this configuration and with this pedal in general.  It definitely is a Big Muff as it has the same exact circuitry and make up of the reissue of this pedal that is a bigger.  I love how thick of a distortion tone that you get with this pedal, both for rhythm and lead parts.  Although a lot of people will use this for rhythm and chords, I generally use it for lead sounds as I really like the way that it fattens up my sound.


OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for the Big Muff sound, but don't want to spend too much money, the Electro-Harmonix Little Big Muff Reissue is a good way to go.  While the regular Big Muff reissue isn't all that more expensive, but I kind of like having it so small as it makes it easier to fit on the pedal board, as the larger one does take up a lot of space.  I'd encourage those interested to check out the full line of Big Muff pedals, but this one is definitely a good choice.
