On the middle-left is the Jordan Gig Wa-Wa, built into the same style cast aluminum enclosure. Targ & Dinner was a Chicago based wholesale musical equipment distributor and retailer, and would later have their own branded version of the Big Muff, the Marveltone Distortion Sustainer.Shown above - A variant Creator circuit with 560p F feedback/filter caps, rather than 500p F found on other examples.THE JORDAN CREATOR Circa 1971-1973 Manufacturer: Jordan Electronics Place of Manufacture: Pasadena and Alhambra, California, USA Designer: Bob Myer is the original Big Muff circuit designer.
In the mid 1970s an exceptionally good sounding Big Muff clone appeared on the market in the USA, the Hohner Tri Dirty Booster.
The Tri stood for Triangle, as the V1 Big Muff had come to be known due to the triangular knob layout.
Around 1971 a pedal with a circuit nearly identical to the Big Muff appeared on the market, the Jordan Creator.
It was manufactured in the USA by Jordan Electronics, a small California pedal effects company owned by Victoreen Instrument Company.
Supposedly one of the employees of Jordan brought in a Big Muff Pi and everyone in the shop loved it.
George Cole made some modifications to the component values and the Creator Volume Sustainer (model #6000) was born.
Jordan made a line of very loud solid state amplifiers beginning in 1966, and a host of other non-musical electronics equipment, such as radiation detectors.
There is not much infomation available about Jordan, but their amplifiers were very well know among musicians in the 1960's, being used by The Yardbirds, The Doors, and the Mamas and the Papas.
The first clone I saw of the Jordan Creator was the Mahoney Creator.
Chris Mahoney stated his version was based on the second version of the Triangle Big Muff.
Bob Garcia, Jordan's chief engineer may have also been involved.
