Old Sovtek Big Muff Repair

A co-worker brought in an old Russian Sovtek Big Muff that had a broken battery snap, and was just a little beat up from years of use. Back when I was a teenager Korn released their first album, and I was all about that guitar sound. I had read in an interview that, when recording at Indigo Ranch, they used a modified Big Muff. So I went down to Guitar Center and bought one of these, but it was soon stolen from the space my band practiced at. Now, nearly 20 years later, these things are a small fortune and beyond my pay grade. It was nice to get my hands on one again…even if it was just to take it apart. Enjoy the pedal porn.
