Buffalo FX Unveils the Ram's Head

Buffalo FX has released their version of a mid-seventies muff, the Ram's Head.

Toulouse, France (June 13, 2013) -- A sonic replica of a mid 70’s muff, it aims to capture the sound and feel of the sought after classic. The dirty work is performed by gain selected NOS BC239c transistors as found in many of the originals.

The Ram’s head is true to the original; only 2 component changes have been made giving it slightly more mids and a more open top end.

Steve at Buffalo says “I didn’t want to deviate too far from the original; they were and will continue to be great pedals. This one is easier to use in a band situation due to some minor changes, and pedal board friendly but there’s still the heart of a 40yr old pedal inside.”

Like all Buffalo pedals the Ram’s Head is 100% hand made by Steve using high quality materials and components.

Street: €155

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
