The real question is is it just the Ram's Head RI with a paint job?

I came here looking to ask the same thing, is this just the same rams head reissue but with a different paint job? Seems an odd release considering the recent wren and cuff garbage face and garbage face jr.

The J Mascis Ram’s Head Big Muff Pi produces the indulgent fuzz tone of equal parts thickness and clarity that J has utilized as his sonic center for decades.
I know it's guitar gear ad copy, but have they actually listened to the first two decades of Dinosaur Jr. albums?

J's tone was neither clear nor thick. It was downright piercing, buzzy, and at times really hard to listen to.

Just listen to all that thick clarity.

I love Dino bit You are totally right ha ha. Apparently J hates the sound of your living all over me but that scratch I was and shrillness is what I like about it

His sound going from shrill to "thick" probably corresponds to when he switched from recording with Jazzmasters to P90s and Telecasters.

J Mascis Rams Head copy from EHX website:

Special-edition artist graphics

Standard Reissue Rams Head copy from EHX website:

Just special edition artwork I think.

Bought one. Never tried a Ram Head so would not be able to compare.

Edit : I asked for a refund since everybody say it's the same then the normal one. The normal reissue is 100$ less in Canada. Dont want to pay 100$ for graphics only.

I’m a huge dinosaur jr fan but I actually prefer the artwork of the standard rams head. And certainly wouldn’t pay the extra just for a different colour scheme.

But it's purple!
It's beautiful artwork. Do I need it? No. Do I want it? Yes.
"500€? That's the price of a J Mascis Jazzmaster!"

Haha you do make a compelling argument and it is cool, but I’d be more than happy with the regular reissue. I have the op amp reissue and plan on grabbing the triangle and rams head at some point.

Didn't J already have a signature pedal with W&C? I thought the Garbage Face was his Sig pedal?
