Hey Ya Karl,
Ok, I don't have one of the Big Muff's but I do have one of the older original "Muff Fuzz" units. It's not really a "pedal" as much as a little box that had an adapter so you plugged it into the input of your amp and then plugged your guitar into the box...twas my first distortion :-)
Now as to the sound...it was a very good distortion sound...lots of harmonics, overtones, yadda, yadda, yadda. My only gripe with the Muff Fuzz was that there was only one control and it was basically a volume control...there was no way to control the "amount" of distortion going into the signal...it was all or nothing basically. Now the older Big Muff, had the same sound and were really sweet...I just never got around to buying one. As far as the newer re-issues go, I haven't tried one...I've heard they're good, but you'd really have to play one to find out.
Like with most things guitar, I'd suggest takin your ax (and amp) to your local music store and give one a try and let your ears decide :-)
Hope this helps!
