Tym Guitars Big Mud Violet Rams Head


Tym Guitars

These are my handmade, hand-wired clones of an old school sustain/fuzz made around '73/74 that has been nicknamed the "Violet Rams head" by many, but with a few little twists. I have used NOS "tin can" BC108's for the transistors giving a little "fizzle" in the top end. This version of the original BM had slightly less gain but way more "harmonics" than later models and re-issues and this one is still lower gain but higher than my standard RH with more mids. The circuit is mainly based on the classic "version 2 Violet" and is housed in my hand made stainless steel enclosures.

These are full sounding fuzz with a less pronounced mid scoop and more output than some others in the series. Check my blog for more details.

My designs are inspired by the classic old units but with modern components and appointments and many options like true bypass or non-true-bypass switching, LED's, added "active" tone controls, boosts and "Boss" compatible 9-volt adapters. NONE of my pedals use batteries.
