EHX's "Preaching to the Muff" takes a look at one way to get 'a spectacular over the top" overdrive sound using Electro Harmonix pedals:
- The Muff Overdrive pedal by itself has a slightly dark, medium distorted sound. Perfect for vintage blues.
- Adding a Soul Preacher pedal in front of the Muff Overdrive 'supercharges' the sound, taking the overdrive to the next level.
- The output of the Soul Preacher pedal is low impedance. This drives the Muff Overdrive harder, while producing a more transparent top end.
- A Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai mod delay was used on the entire track
