Ha! Big Muffs. The king of confusion. Funny, I've always associated the Ram's with the opposite, as in boosted mids. The bulk of what I've had in vintage units have all been post '75 so kinda figures.

I am with you on on the addiction warning. Once I bought the first unit and played it I ended up buying 2 more just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. It's not a fluke. :badteeth:

The dope priest clicked with me today! Had it just over a week and have only had a few chances to play it...

But my new Sola mk1.5 and the priest have been inspiring new riffs and I was recording one of the riffs on my phone and when listening back I thought to myself 'fuck yeah this is it!!'

Yeah.
Right now my pedalboard is only Black Dust -> Wah -> Dope Priest -> Delay -> Reverb -> Amp
Super awesome sounds and it rips so hard on ANY riff. :crackjam:

I just got a Dope Priest a little while ago from another forum member. I have several boutique Muff variants (and a modern Muff w/ tone wicker) and I have to say that I definitely like this best. It's built great and most importantly, it sounds great. It works with my Strat, Tele and even my Les Paul. You can find the sweet spot relatively quickly too, depending on the guitar. it's a home run! I've owned few DAM pedals, and even though EFE is their affordable line, there is nothing "budget" about it at all. I think I'm in the market for a Lucifer Rising box next..

The Lucifer is a cracking noise box you won't be disappointed if you get one. Love mine.

Got this Dope Priest second hand today and I've been playing it all night. Definitely by far the creamiest Muff I've tried, and it just BEGS to be stacked with other dirt. It's the least scooped out of the three in the last picture, and definitely cuts through. Craftsmanship and quality through and though!

Might not be your pair of shoes, but the Dope Priest was used exclusively on all guitar tracks on the whole album, which should be ready in a month or two :hihi: :tu:

Dope Priest jam, all improv stuff and nice demo for the pedal!

Used Sunn O))) Mustang strat (std. tuning), into EFE Dope Priest, into Sound City 120, and some 4x12.
