The Fredric Effects Green Russian is based on the 1990s Sovtek "bubble font" Big Muff Pi fuzz, otherwise known as the green box Russian Muff.
The Green Russian Sound
Today sought after for its unique tone in the family of Muffs, the Green Russian is particularly suited to both bass players and guitarists playing stoner and doom as it has less gain than other Muffs along with a fatter bottom end and brighter mids - this suits downtuned genres incredibly well compared to the brighter, almost thin-in-comparison standard Muff.
The green box Russian Muff has been used by a diverse group of players including John Frusciante (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Dan Auerbach (Black Keys), Andrew Stockdale (Wolfmother), Robin Finck (Nine Inch Nails) and Kurt Vile (Kurt Vile & The Violators)
