Wren and Cuff Garbage Face Jr

The Wren and Cuff Garbage Face Jr is a stripped down and physically smaller version of the Garbage Face. It has the same fuzz / distortion circuitry without the boost section

If you aren’t familiar with the origin of the original Garbage Face, here’s the lowdown:

About the orignal Garbage Face

Matthew Holl (owner of Wren and Cuff) has had a working relationship with Dinosaur Jr’s J Mascis for many years now.

After years of working together, Matthew approached J with the idea of doing a signature pedal based on J’s favorite vintage Muff pedal.

In 2017, J sent Matt the original pedal for a major repair job.

As a result of this process, Matt pitched the signature pedal to J, and the reverse engineering process began.

Given the relaxed approach to pedal construction employed by Electro Harmonix in the 70s, as well as decades of component drift (more than 40% in some cases), this was a long and complicated process which necessitated significant technical wizardry.

That pedal, an early 70’s “Ram’s Head” Big Muff® purchased by J on tour in 1987, was the model used to create the Garbage Face Jr.

Matthew and J worked together to ensure that thefinal unit was a dead on replica of his treasured pedal.

That idea became The Garbage Face, J’s full-size dual volume Fuzz/Treble-Booster signature pedal.

After years of meticulous work and consultation with the man himself, the Garbage Face was released in 2021.  It featured the Muff clone, as well as a germanium treble boost and a switchable output level.

The Garbage Face Jr

Following the original pedal release, there were requests for a stripped down three knob version of the distortion side of that pedal only.


Very simple, as as you woudld expect:

  • Volume
  • Gain
  • Tone

The Garbage Face Jr., strips it back to the heart of its predecessor. It is an exact clone of J’s favorite fuzz in a new, pedalboard friendly package.

The Garbage Face Jr answers that request. Now is your chance to have the magic of of J’s #1 vintage muffer in a small pedalboard-friendly
enclosure. It also has the artwork that captures J’s love of bold colors and playful imagery.
