MIDS EQ: Parametric MIDS EQ section with a selectable center frequency ranging from 310Hz to 5.0kHz, a level control with up to 10dB of boost or cut and a high/low Q switch that sets the resonance/bandwidth of the EQ
FOOTSWITCH for MIDS EQ: Dedicated on/off footswitch with status LED for the MIDS EQ circuit
GATE: Noise gate to remove unwanted hiss and hum
BLEND: Mix control for the dry and distorted signals. Enables bass players to retain their signal’s low end; also useful when layering in other distortion pedals
WICKER: With the switch up, high frequency bandwidth is opened up for a more pronounced attack. Switch down yields the traditional Green Russian sound.
EXPRESSION PEDAL INPUT: Sweeps the frequency of the MIDS EQ to create wah wah and cocked wah effects
TRUE BYPASS: Maintains signal path integrity in bypass mode
INTERNAL INPUT BUFFER SWITCH: An internal slide switch to engage a buffer on the Big Muff’s input circuit that increases the high end content of both the distorted and clean signal being blended in
MIDS EQ TRIM POTS: Three internal trim pots for adjusting (a) High Q bandwidth, (b) High Q output volume and (c) overall MIDS EQ output volume.
