Electro-Harmonix has unveiled what they say is a faithful re-creation of their original 1973 Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff renowned for its exceptional sustain and articulate string separation. The new pedal is housed in a pedalboard friendly die-cast chassis and equipped with a few select updates for convenience. These include true bypass switching, an LED to indicate effect status and the option of being powered by a 9-volt AC adapter.
Electro-Harmonix founder, Mike Matthews, told us, “Prices of original Ram’s Head Big Muffs have reached astronomical heights. This reissue nails that classic V2 tone heard on legendary recordings and famous guitar solos, and does it at a price the working musician can afford.”
Pricing and Availability:
The Ram’s Head Big Muff is available now and features a U.S. Street Price of $99.00
