Excellent Bass Fuzz,
This review is from: Electro-Harmonix Bass Big Muff (Electronics)Just a very good bit of kit really... controls as the standard Big Muff, plus the little toggle switch which allows you to choose three 'modes': Dry gives you the unaffected bass signal with some of the wet signal mixed in, allowing for a good clean low-end thump with a subtle bit of fuzz around the edges. Normal is the basic effect, giving that classic Big Muff sound. Bass Boost does exactly what you'd expect... it makes the low-end louder! Both the Dry and Bass Boost settings are best used with the Tone past 1 O'clock, otherwise there's a risk of the sound becoming too muddy. There are also two outputs: Wet and Dry, allowing for use of a dual amp rig.

Is there much difference between this and the normal Big Muff pedal? I'd be using the pedal with a bass guitar, but the normal Big Muff is cheaper, and I'm wondering whether there's much advantage in buying the bass version of the Big Muff. Any advice/opinion appreciated.

Yes, the regular Big Muff circuit has a bad habit of cutting the lows which isn't really that useful on bass. The bass boost and dry settings allow you to keep all the lows (distorted and clean, respectively).
