I usually use my Russian Muff in a bypass loop pedal if I’ll be turning it off in the session at all. It’s messy and takes up space but solves that bypass load problem.

The reissue is good and I've heard good things about the Sovtek Deluxe.

I've owned several black Russians over the years. If you go that route be careful. Build quality is iffy. I had to replace battery connectors and ground wires in each of them.

I'm looking at an EQD Hoof very seriously right now. But I've always had my eye on a Jam Pedals Red Muck. Anyone ever play both and compare?
