Description & History


Pig Hoof is a replica of the Big Muff П (BMP) model, that was manufactured by Electro Harmonix around the mid 70s under the nickname "Ram's Head". As David Gilmour devoted fan, i was just obliged to make my own Ram's Head clone. David purchased his model in around 1975 in Manny's, NY. In 1977 (during the Animals tour) the Ram's became his main distortion pedal, retiring the old silicon Fuzz Face for good. Since i was lucky enough to put my fingers on an original 70s Ram's Head unit, i used that opportunity to gradually tweak the sound of our own prototype, so that it eventually sounded identical to the old guy.

If you are into the Big Muff history we advise you to visit this brilliant and comprehensive Kitrae's site.

If you play mostly at home, and appreciate a less hissy and steamy variant, i also offer a great sounding Pig Hoof MkII.

Original units used by: David Gilmour, Santana, Black Keys and tons of the other heroes
Controls: Volume, Tone, Sustain
Contemporary trend: LED, DC socket, True Bypass ON/OFF foot switch

Powering



  • 9V battery or power adapter (50-100mA at minimum)

  • DC socket for a standard 5.5/2.1 mm barrel jack, positive on the barrel, negative inside

  • The battery life will be extended by unplugging the input jack when the pedal is not in use. Plugging in a DC jack also disconnects the battery and saves its life.


Due to the airport security restrictions, i cannot include a battery.
Please use any kind of 9V battery, preferably a common zinc–carbon battery (for example Green Cell) for the best results, but any type will do.

The price includes



  • 4 removable rubber feet

  • true bypass switching

  • foot switch by Cliff

  • low capacity jack sockets by Cliff

  • extremely durable battery clips by Cliff

  • top quality Panasonic Low Voltage capacitors where needed

  • thick wires for the maximum sound fidelity and overall durability

  • firm and durable internal design
