New York City, NY (October 18, 2019) -- Electro-Harmonix has unveiled 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, 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.”

The Ram’s Head Big Muff is available now and features a U.S. Street Price of $99.00
