      If you want the op amp for Pumkins tone, I recommend the el musico loco Siamese Scream.

        the siamese screamer has the best design out of all the clones I've seen. but I want to be able to restore some of the mids that are lost with the big muff tone. all the clones i've seen are around the same price range new, ~$170. but the feature that the dreamsicle has, is the tone bypass footswitch. I don't care for the orange too much either, but it'll be different than the other pedals I have.

          How about a Swollen Pickle?

          It feels like Urban Dictionary in here. People are throwing around words like Big Muff, Swollen Pickle, Dreamsicle.

          Pedals always have the weirdest names.

            That tone bypass definitely gives the dreamsicle the edge when comparing to the other clones. Good choice!

              I've heard good things about Fredric Effects Big Muff clones, and almost bought one before I got my Aries Fuzz. Occasionally I see them advertising an op-amp version of the Big Muff. Might be worth checking out.


              Do what I do. Hold tight and pretend it's a plan!

                Because Mike Matthews named the original the Big Muff Pi! Everyone tries to be creative with their own take on creative euphemisms.
                Oh no.....


                Oh Yeah!

                  just got the dreamsicle, wow that was super fast shipping! awesome tones! very much the opamp/ic big muff tones i was searching for. the tone bypass is very helpful for a lead boost or whatever else.

                  this thread has a really good demo

                        yes your absolutely right. I looked into the fredric's clone, and while the pedal box has awesome graphics, the footswitch tone bypass on the dreamsicle vs none on the fredric's sold me. The made by mike one is great too, as mike will put custom graphics or whatever for no additional charge. All 3 pedals are in the same price range +/-$10.
