"John is a Russian Big Muff collector and has used them from time to time. *'That is a Russian, Civil War era Big Muff pedal making that noise in the middle (of Mystic Highway). A lot of people don’t know what I am talking about. I have quite a collection of Russian Big Muffs. They are very unique and I wanted to use that to add to that hippie vibe.' - John Fogerty in 2013*"more
> A desert island backline for me would be a Travis Bean Standard koa model along with a [Sunn] model T full stack. I could even do a half stack for a small club or beach hut. I would also choose a Les Paul with P-90s and go with the model T. I would take a RAT too, but I would need to bring along an EHX Sovtek Civil War Big Muff as well.more
My favorite type of pedal is without a doubt Fuzz. I think you can tell a lot about when a person grew up by the kind of Fuzz they like. My favorite vintage Fuzz is a Sov Tek green civil war era big muff. I have two of them that I just treasure. Jeorge Tripps makes a new version of this pedal for Way Huge called a Russian Pickle, and that’s what I have been using lately.more
