Wren and Cuff Phat Phuk B

You may be thinking, “Oh no, not another clean booster”.  But this is the Wren and Cuff Phat Phuk B!

If that is your thought right now, I don’t blame you. If you’re a stompbox junkie, you probably know that there is no shortage of signal boosters out there.

So what makes the Phat Phuk Bass Booster different?

  • Hand sorted germanium transistor
  • True hard-wire bypass
  • 9V battery or 2.1mm adapter
  • Made in the USA
  • Lifetime warranty

This booster is specifically for the bass guitar.

Designed to accommodate tunings down to a five string’s typical low B, and is good for even lower tunings.

This is not a transparent boost. It’s not a JFET or MOSFET based booster. There are many fine boosters out there that are designed to be “transparent.”

If that’s what you’re after, the Phat Phuk may not be for you. A JFET is used in the Phat Phuk however, more on that below.

The Phat Phuk is not a clone of any other pedal.

The Phat Phuk is a JFET/germanium single circuit hybrid booster.

There is a double booster. I know of with two independent boosts, one being a germanium, one JFET based. It’s actually a very fine pedal.

Perhaps there is another single circuit JFET-germ booster out there, but I’m not aware of it.

Pink Sparkle Paint with a solid pink base coat.

Then a durable clear-pink sparkle top-coat. The base coat and top-coat give a deep gorgeous finish. You gotta be a confident man to have a pink pedal, or a girl who happens to like the color pink.

Here’s what the Phat Phuk is:

A germanium/JFET booster. A unique sounding pedal which adds a beautiful sheen to your bass’ top end. It also adds a bit of grit to the overall tone.

It’s a fantastic pedal for situations where you want a lift in your overall level. For example, during a chorus or bridge for example, with a bit of bawdy bump via the germanium transistor.

One nice feature is the JFET at the input which keeps the pedal impedance friendly. This is important when it comes to active bass pickups.

Therefore, this helps the Phat Phuk to remain consistent whether you put a P-Bass in front of it, or a Warwick Thumb.

Another recommended use

As a simple preamp when going direct into your DAW. Helps to de-sterilize your bass’s direct tone. And add a little life before the signal is converted to ones and zeros.

Many clean-boosts offer way too much boost in my (W&C) opinion.

In any normal playing situation one really only needs a hefty thump to get the job done. This includes intentionally slamming the front end of a tube amp to induce the amp’s natural overdrive!

A huge amount of volume is not always good!

There’s nothing wrong with having a large amount of volume on tap.

However, a problem that can sometimes occur is a lack of ability to fine tune the amount of boost you want.

When the sweep of the knob goes from zero to melt-down with one turn of the knob, it gets tough to really dial in a precise amount of boost.

Also a slight bump of the boost knob, with a foot or nervous “live show” jitters, can send things out of control. I know because its happened to me.

Went for the big chorus during a song. Hit the clean boost (not mine, this was long before Wren and Cuff existed) and tore the heads off the people in the front, pissed off the sound man, and pretty much ruined that song.

The volume sweep is reduced with the Phatty.

You still get a big gob of gain, and probably won’t ever need to run the pedal “at 11″, but the trade -off is worth the extra control.

Just an example of what Wren and Cuff pride itself on. Pedals that sound superior, look beautiful, can take a beating, and made for “real world” players.

In other words: Meticulous attention to detail.

Give the Phat Phuk a try! Its beauty is in its simplicity.
