Electro-Harmonix has announced that it will reissue its 1973 Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff pedal.
Popularized by David Gilmour, the original Ram's Head was known for its string separation and especially its sustain.
Now available in a much smaller and more pedalboard-friendly chassis than the original, the Ram's Head reissue features the same three controls as the original - level, tone and sustain, the last of which controls the distortion.
Updates for the modern version of the pedal include true bypass switching, an LED to indicate effect status and the option of being powered by a 9-volt AC adapter.
The Electro-Harmonix Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff reissue is available now for $99.
