The pedal takes the already familiar three-knob design of Volume, Tone and Sustain and adds a three-way mid-scoop, boost and flat toggle switch. Other features include Neutrik input/output jack, a Boss-style 9-volt power jack and true-bypass switching. The Ram’s Head is hand-wired in the U.S.
Truth be told, Leo Fender never intended for the amp to get such an overdriven sound. He much preferred the clean twang of country and Hawaiian lap steels. But guys like Neil Young, Joe Walsh, Eric Clapton and Billy Gibbons had other plans: Crank these low-watt wonders wide open!
