Description

Wren and Cuff Caprid Red

The Wren and Cuff Caprid Special Edition pedal was placed on hiatus in 2017. The manufacturing cost of the big metal beast  made by a small shop in Los Angeles are high

Wren and Cuff is known for vintage Muff recreations. When the full-size original Wren and Caprid hit the scene in 2012 it was an instant hit. It had rave reviews from magazines, pro players, and the pedal community at large. It also had a great 5 year run.

Build

We know what you’re expecting. You’re thinking we moved everything overseas so we could crank them out cheaply…well… nope!  After we had so many requests to bring it back, we finally made it happen. Enclosures made by that same small metal shop in Los Angeles, and pedals are assembled in our shop in North Los Angeles.

Features

This special edition Caprid is released before the original version! We wanted to bring ‘em back, but do something a little special. So first, a reproduction of the famed “violet-era” Ram’s Head Muffer.

This pedal contains 3 hand-selected orange-dot and 1 violet-dot transistor, 1/2 watt carbon composition resistors, and the highest quality caps and components we could find.

  • Mid-70’s era Muff recreation

  • 100% hand-wired in Los Angeles

  • Original 3003 style PCB

  • Super heavy-duty folded steel enclosure

  • True hard-wired bypass

The tone?

Saturated and even. If our White Elk pedal is the gnarliest, “wrong” sounding pedal we ever made, then the violet-blue is its polar opposite.

Turn the gain up, and you get a milky warm sea of sustain, earthy lows, and a rich top-end with just the right amount of that signature Muff mid-scoop. As generic as the term is, “violin-like sustain” is exactly the way to describe the way this pedal grabs hold of a note.

This pedal is a joy to hold in your hands, looks beautiful on any pedalboard (as long as you’ve got the real estate) or on its own, and is an even bigger joy to play for hours on end.

Hear it for yourself here.

With its heavy enclosure, it would be a difficult pedal to kill (even if you tried!). And with the lifetime warranty, all Wren and Cuff pedals come with, if it did break, we’ve got you covered.

Well, why is my violet ram blue?

EHX® made a couple changed a couple of things.

They changed the famous square “Ram’s Head” logo to a round shape. They also switched to a one-color graphics layout on the front, perhaps to save a bit of money since two-color graphics are more expensive to make.

These came in blue, black, red, and violet colors, with some colors being rarer than others.

    The pedal is absolutely fantastic! And thanks again to GFXD for the outstanding customer service – Simon’s communication was really helpful and I appreciated the pedal being reserved so I was definitely able to place an order.

    The Caprid sounds, feels and looks really high quality. It’s the best Big Muff style fuzz I’ve ever played! I’ve not tried an original Rams Head but it gets me those Dinosaur Jr tones so I’m very happy! My only slight niggle with it is the power socket is a bit loose (came loose in transit I guess?) but I leave it plugged in on my pedalboard and it powers on fine.
