Hi! First of all, I am new here (kind of, I am surfing on the website about some months but now I finally registered). My name is Tamir and my English is not very well, it is not my local language, so I am sorry if I melt your eyes with my English
I'll get to the thing.
As a many years Gilmour fan I understand that I need a good Muff as well.
Currently I have a local (Israel) boutique Germanium Fuzz Face (Arielfx, if you've heard about them) which doesn't fit my needs (late era of Gilmour tones) and also doesn't sound good on my Solid-State amp, so I am going to sell it.
I am into building pedals and have build some (well, little things on Veroboards), and very interested in the Large Beaver.
You sure know all the variants of the Big muff and know it can realy confuse.
I have read (and heard) that the Triangle Large Beaver is not exactly what I need, and it is brighter than the Ram's head and a slightly different altough it is good as well.
I am trying to achieve the ultimate Gilmourish Muff tone and if I decided on building it, I think it should be close as I can.
I have a Talking-Too-Much-Problem as you can see. So I'll try to make it short.
I want to build a Ram's Head clone (closest clone as I can, not something that sound like...) on the Large Beaver PCB. I saw a few schematics, and parts lists on GGG, searched this forum and saw these links:
and got pretty confused, each source tells other things.
What part should I buy to build a kind of exact clone for the Ram's head muff? I don't want to buy a Beaver kit and mod it, I want to build a Ram directly.
I see so many different transistors for the Ram, and resistors and caps as well.
Please Guide me about what it is recommended to buy for this clone because I have a big headache.
Thanks mates, just for reading it.
