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.
