Vintage EH Ram's Head Big Muff Pi V2 - Okay, here we go. I HATE to let this one go, but am busy raising money for my studio build out and some beloved gear has to go to pay the piper.
FREE SHIPPING! plus a price drop today (6/1) and again today (6/2)!
I have had this one since 1995. It is a V2 Ram's Head, with the very rare PNP MN5087 transistors, mostly carbon comp but a few film resistors, and a mix of box and can capacitors. Bad: One pot changed, Battery clip changed, one 1/4" hole drilled in each (left and right) side, presumably for someone to have it power on a pedalboard or some crazy mounting scheme, non original (but old bakelite I think) chicken head knobs, which were on it when I bought it. Lastly, the on/off switch is very wonky. It has to be jiggled sometimes. One of Analog Mike's guys told me he can rebuild it easily if you care to. But for me, once you jiggle it (if you need to) it stays on just fine. Good: This one absolutely KILLS! I have had probably 12-15 vintage Muffs of all variants over the years. This one has the smoothest, creamiest, most righteous tone of them all. I sold several Triangles, a couple of V1 Ram's (one with the rare round transistors that are supposed to be "better") and V2 Ram's, and even a rare purple lettered Ram because this one just killed them all.
If all my other stuff sells I will happily keep this one and I hope that comes to pass. Meanwhile, you will not find a better sounding vintage V2 (or V1 for that matter) Ram's head Muff (IMHO).
Note, item is sold as is, no returns, so please ask all questions before buying or making an offer.
I suggest a tune up with Analog Mike, and even a TBP switch and power jack if you want to use it on your board. But for rocking around the house and studio use it can rage right now.
Obviously tone is subjective. But this one is well loved and in used vintage condition. BE SURE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE PURCHASING. That said, it sounds amazing....
