Wounded Paw / Battering Ram Overdrive + Fuzz / 2009 / Effect
The Battering Ram is an Overdrive plus Fuzz pedal which works equally well for guitar or bass or anything else you want to plug into it. The Overdrive section is switched on with the Overdrive/bypass stomp switch. It's a smooth overdrive with a DRIVE knob that ranges from clean to growling, a HI knob to dial in the top end and a LO switch that adds in the lower octaves for bass or other full range instruments.
Overdrive plus Fuzz means that while the Overdrive is on all the time, the Fuzz can be added on top of the Overdrive, without affecting the Overdrive volume or tone (parallel processing).
The Fuzz is switched on via a second stomp switch and has it's own LEVEL control. It's snarling and raspy and can get right out of control if you crank up the SUSTAIN. The TONE control goes from high-end cut to flat to a mid-cut, high end boost. And for another set of sounds there is the OCT switch to change the fuzz section into an octave up fuzz. Crazy.
The Battering Ram now has a new feature, the Split switch. The Battering Ram was developed to run the Overdrive and Fuzz sides in parallel when the Fuzz is switched on but bowing to pressure we've changed this. The Split switches allows you to run the channels in parallel or separately. With the Split switch in the up position, when you hit the Fuzz stomp switch the overdrive gets switched off at the same time.
