This is a limited run pedal originally released in October 2013 and now re-released in March 2014.  These are only available exclusively at Chicago Music Exchange and are released only in small batch quantities.

The 73 Rams Head, built in Manhattan, NY, gets its name from the old EHX logo that was on the Big Muffs from this era. It's most famous user was David Gilmour who religiously used it with Pink Floyd and on his solo recordings. Solos like Comfortably Numb from The Wall and many more from that time on, including Animals, The Final Cut, Momentary Lapse Of Reason, Division Bell and so on. Overall the Rams Head has a bit less gain and a pronounced mid scoop. Our replica uses 5088 Transistors just like the original 73 Rams Head that we own and love.  If you love distortion and/or fuzz, you will find many uses for this extremely classic sound that can only be found in the Rams Head Big Muff.

This pedal requires standard 9V DC Negative power and measures 2.2"x4.3"x1.5"

The JHS Pedals "73 Rams Head Replica" pedal is in no way affiliated with Electro Harmonix, USA.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
