Smashing Pumpkins Sound with Electro Harmonix Pedals

Here’s an easy way to get a sound reminiscent of the Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream album. The effect chain consists of a Little Big Muff and Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai.

The combination of these two effects produces a thick wall of sound using only one guitar. See the links below to get a hold of these sweet pedals!
