EHX brings back the V2 Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff

EHX is reissuing the venerable¬†1973 V2 Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff, a pedal that currently goes for ridonculous figures on the vintage market. You absolutely will not find one below $1,000 and you’re more likely to pay in the range of of $1,500-$2,500. The new version will set you back a much more reasonable $99.

EHX founder Mike Matthews says “Prices of original Ram’s Head Big Muffs have reached astronomical heights.This reissue nails the classic V2 tone heard on legendary recordings and famous guitar solos, and does it at a price any working musician can afford.”

Watch as Bill Ruppert takes you on a journey through time and tone as he explores what makes the ’73 V2 Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff so sought after.

Cool Gear Alert: EHX Epitome

I always love getting emails from Bill Ruppert – Mr. Effectology – because it means my mind is about to be melted by hiterto-unexplored worlds of guitaristic colour.

Come along as this master of effects charts a course of discovery!” But that doesn’t really give you any real indication of what the Epitome is capable of.

VIDEO: Bill Ruppert & Electro-Harmonix – Autobahn

WHOA! I got this email this morning from guitarist Bill Ruppert:

My name is Bill Ruppert and I thought this would be of interest to your viewers.

I have developed a video series for the effect pedal company Electro-Harmonix called “Effectology.”

Every two weeks I present a new video on how to produce “impossible” sounds using just a regular guitar and EHX effect pedals.

This week I recreate the synthesizer classic “Autobahn” by the band Kraftwerk.

All sounds were created using just a regular guitar and effect pedals! No keyboards, samplers or midi pickups were used.

The video is here:

Amazing work, Bill! Also it’s nice to see an Ibanez JEM77FP being put to such great use!
