In 1973 there was something magic that happened in the world of muff. A pedal that looked the same as all the big silver Ram’s came out, but there was something unusual under the hood. What later became known as the “47” Ram, the name had nothing to do with the year 1947. The moniker was attached to the pedal because of a heavy array of components using the number “47”. There were 470pf, 0.047uf, 0.47uf, and 0.0047uf, caps abound, and even a handful of 470k resistors fed into the numeric flow.
