Big Muff with Orange CR120h

Post by ryandilello5 » Sun Dec 18, 2016 6:50 pm

Anyone have experience using a Big Muff with Orange amps? If so, can you give me some advice on getting a good soloing tone? I'm using a Crush 120 head.

You've got the pedal as well?

If yes, why not just try stuff out and listen to your ears? Try it with the amp clean/dirty.

Completely agree with this. Pedal on the floor, amp on the cab, guitar in hand, then bend on one knee while playing with the band and start making adjustments. The Big Muff is pretty scooped in the mids, so don't be surprised if you have to roll the tone up-up-up. Or add a mid boost in front - a Tubescreamer style pedal or an EQ.

Better yet, have someone play guitar for you and tweak the pedal whilst playing. If possible in a band mix...
