    Vintage Electro-Harmonic Big Muff pedal Questions :)

    Hey! I just got this amazing vintage Electro-Harmonic Big Muff pedal at a thrift store very cheap. I had three questions about this neat pedal. (Photos attached)


    The first question is, what year is this pedal? The front says Made in NYC USA. I do not see any serial or model numbers anywhere on the pedal itself. The potentiometer has the following letters/numbers on it: P0150 and 1378005


    The second question is, do I need to replace any of the caps on this unit before turning it on for the first time?


    The third question is, where do I find replacement case screws for this pedal? This did pedal did not come with any screws.


    Thanks a lot!

    That's a CTS potentiometer from the 5th week of 1980. You should be fine running the pedal with the old caps in it- the voltages are low. If it's noisy it might need work.

    Very cool pedal, BTW!
