Meet The Black Ram fuzz. It’s familiar, but a little different. Want to cut straight to the video?
We get our hands on things like vintage BMPs pretty regularly. One day a broken Rams’s Head V2 muff showed up. After getting it running again, we realized it sounded really cool, and unlike what we expected. So we blueprinted it and cloned it. A few “broken” component values, combined with NOS transistors selected for their rarely-occurring gain levels, and we’ve re-created a monster fuzz. It’s loud as hell and a little unruly, with a more aggressive, midrange-y sound than we usually associate with a muff. The gain and tone controls both sweep through surprising amounts of usable territory.
The Black Ram is true-bypass, has both a 2.1mm center-negative 9v jack and an internal battery clip, and comes with a 2-year warranty to the original purchaser against defects in manufacturing and materials. MSRP is US $229.00
The Black Ram is available at Chicago Music Exchange and Indy String Theory
