Dating guild guitar vintage

Around 1971 a pedal with a circuit nearly identical to the Big Muff appeared on the market, the Jordan Creator.It was manufactured in the USA by Jordan Electronics, a small California pedal effects company owned by Victoreen Instrument Company.Supposedly one of the employees of Jordan brought in a Big Muff Pi and everyone in the shop loved it.George Cole made some modifications to the component values and the Creator Volume Sustainer (model #6000) was born.

Shown above - A variant Creator circuit with 560p F feedback/filter caps, rather than 500p F found on other examples.

ince its creation in 1969, The Big Muff Pi has been a very popular pedal, and as with many other popular pedals from the late 1960 and '70's, other companies wanted to cash in on the sound.

Within a few years of hitting the market, the Big Muff was being cloned by both minor and major manufacturers, including Jen, Sola Sound/Colorsound, and Ibanez, and it is still being done today.

Cloning another company's circuit was nothing new back then or today, and many of these knockoffs showed the wider range of uses that could be aplied to the circuit to expand the tonal vocabulary.

If you have any information about Big Muff clones not listed here, or additional info to help improve these articles, please email me using the contact at the bottom of this page.

In the mid 1970s an exceptionally good sounding Big Muff clone appeared on the market in the USA, the Hohner Tri Dirty Booster.
