The Big Muff is among the most reproduced/cloned pedals of all time. And few are quite so coveted as the ’73 Violet Ram’s Head variety, known for its soaring sustain and note definition despite the levels of filth. Now EHX have reissued it in a compact chassis with the same familiar controls and true bypass circuitry – onto a winner!
Here’s what Electro-Harmonix say:
A faithful reproduction of the highly coveted 1973 Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff heard on countless classic recordings and famous guitar solos. It delivers the unmistakable articulate string separation and exceptional sustain that’s made the V2 Big Muff so sought after. Now with a few choice updates for convenience including 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, stated: “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.”
