Civil War Era Sovtek / Electro Harmonix Green Russian Big Muff Replica

Effect Information

What the builder had to say:

This replica is based on the original circuit designs of the Sovtek Civil War (V7) and Green Russian Muff[s] featuring some modern enhancements:

  • 100% True Bypass – won’t “suck tone”
  • Deluxe
    Edition – switchable tone bypass – bypasses the loved/hated tone control
    and delivers a 3-6db boost via a second foot switch.
  • Deluxe Edition – switchable Creamy Dreamer inspired emitter lift on both gain stages serves up more gain.
  • Independent three-way clipping controls for both drive stages. Select stock 1n914,
    rare glass case Germanium 1n60, or diode lift for 9 distinct voicings.

This replica has been rendered using nothing but
the “best of the best” parts:

  • E/H 3PDT stomp switch
  • 1-2% Vishay metal film resistors
  • Alpha precision potentiometers
  • High grade bonded 24 gauge wire and silver solder
  • Quality Neutric jacks
  • Wima/Mallory/Nichicon capacitors
