Wren and Cuff J Mascis Garbage Face

Wren and Cuff J Mascis Garbage Face was inspired by a bonafide guitar legend by any standard.

His band Dinosaur Jr. toured with and influenced many of the bands that defined the 90’s. Bands like Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, and too many others to count.

Ask nearly any punk or grunge band from that era (and of today) if they’ve heard of J Mascis. You’ll get a look like you’re a fool for even having to ask.

His association with the Big Muff is well documented as one of the main parts of the Dinosaur Jr. sound.

So, it is understandable that the Muff experts at Wren and Cuff would be the ones calling when the idea for a signature pedal came about. After more than 2 years in the making, that pedal is finally here.

A part-by-part recreation of J’s number one Muff since 1987, this is not just any 70’s EHX Ram’s Head.

J’s pedal is an odd bird with parts values that are “incorrect”. Component values  have drifted far from their original values during its near-50 year journey.

  • Tone
  • Gain
  • Volume 2
  • Boost

On the other side of the pedal is a replication of J’s favorite germanium treble booster.  He uses it to slam the input of said muffer.

And nestled in between the two is a wonderfully simple but incredibly useful tool. A  second volume knob with a footswitch to let you bounce between two Muff volume outputs!

We know you’ll love this collaboration with one of the best masters of fuzz that has ever lived. Here it is in action!

    The pedal is great, the tone is superb and I absolutely love it. It does have some idiosyncrasies but so do all more expensive pedals – it doesn’t love being stacked with cheap pedals, and sometimes the tone gets lost on some cheaper amps, but that isn’t the pedal’s fault at all. The three buttons are a bit close too, but I increasingly don’t bother with the middle one which negates much of that problem.

    At the weekend I played it through a massive Hi Watt stack and it sounded like the end of days so that was wonderful.

    The bit that really surprises me though is the boost which I use all the time, often with my clean tone to really scrub it up. That is a premium pedal in its own right so that is a massive bonus.
