Wren and Cuff

Tone.

A good pedal is more than an effect. A good pedal can inspire creativity, change the style of the player, and shape the attitude of the song it lies within. Effects can be important.

As musicians we become attached to our pieces of gear and often begin to think of them as extensions of our instrument. Some of us can carry a fondness for them that gives them an almost lifelike presence in our minds. We will fiercely defend them in conversation, and feel a loyalty to them that can only compare to that of a friend.

Crazy? Its just a box full of electronic components after all. Maybe it is crazy, but for many musicians, this is no exaggeration. Here at Wren and Cuff we get it. We know the excitement of seeing that little square UPS box on the doorstep.

We know the thrill of walking into your local shop, plugging in, and discovering that the sound you're hearing from the amp is the same as the sound you've been hearing in your head for so long, and we know that your effects matter.

We want to create that experience for you. Each pedal is made in our small shop on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Every component on the circuit board has been loaded by hand, every pedal assembled by hand, and every Wren and Cuff pedal comes with a lifetime "no questions asked" warranty. Quality, reliability, and tone.

This is Wren and Cuff.

    Wren and Cuff Small Foot Caprid 

    It started in 2012 with the Caprid. The idea was to make a full size recreation of the legendary B** M***f "Ram's Head”. Knowing that there are actually four different versions of the circuit within the enclosures from the 70's, I decided to make a "best of” combination of those circuits to capture what I felt was special about each one. 

    For the original, I used a recreation of the original "3003" one layer PCB, carbon comp resistors, big tropical fish capacitors, and of course the mega big original style muff box. 

    After many, many, requests, 5 years later we have finally made a "Small Foot" version of this fat monster tone machine. 

    For practical reasons, we of course had to sacrifice some of the neat features of the first Caprid, in order to fit the circuit into the pedal-board friendly 125-style box of the Small Foot. 

    So does it sound exactly the same? No, it does not. If it did, what would be special about the original? However, it does sound pretty damn close. 

    On the small foot we used quieter, metal film resistors, standard size metal film and ceramic capacitors, as well as a smaller (duh) PCB in order to fit into the box. 

    What does it sound like?

    My favorite way to describe the sound is buttered nails. Can be violin smooth and sustaining, but can be raunchy and drivey when you roll the distortion knob back. Med-heavy mid-scoop, heavy saturation on tap.

    For a long time now I’d been planning on making a fuzz pedal designed for the many distortion loving bass players out there. It all started when I began getting a large percentage of my Pickle Pie sales from bass players who knew The Pickle’s reputation as a “guitar” pedal that could handle the low frequencies of the bass, and give a nice spongy fuzz much better than most of the Muff family. Even though most were happy with this pedal, I had always wanted to take a stab at doing some tweaks to The Pickle to create a pedal with a much different voice, but one that still uses the same basic skeleton as the PP, and strives to resolve many of the common quandaries bassists come across in their search for a fuzz that really works for their instrument and their playing situation. Long story short, I spent much of my spare time for a few months trying many, many different ideas and experiments till I came up with something I was really happy with. OK, here’s the rundown on some of the changes made to the first PPie: A FET buffered active clean-boost. No “drop out” when you kick on the fuzz when playing live. Helps give the feel of running two amps, one wet, one dry for those of us who can’t afford two SVT’s, and/or can’t lug two bass amps down to the local club. Totally changed FET-hybrid clip sections. Along with great sounding fuzz, this specific clipping combo helps the fuzz to mesh with the clean signal in a natural way, instead of just sitting on top of the dry signal like some fuzzers with clean blends can do. Altered tone-stack range geared specifically for bass. A widened range of usable tones from the “shape” knob. The pedal overall has a much less pronounced mid-scoop which helps it to retain presence in a live playing situation. Altered saturation (fuzz) knob to make it highly usable at lower gain settings. Roll the fuzz back, and things still sound crisp, also tighter lows at high fuzz settings. I know everyone says this, but The PP “B” really can go from a dirty, gritty, slightly over-driven clean-blended bass sound, to fully saturated, watch out for feedback, drop-C meltdown, and everything in-between. Various cap and resistor changes. Several core changes to the circuit to even better accommodate the bass guitar. And usual quality you expect from Wren and Cuff. Genuine Davies “Daka-ware” knobs. (like the old WH pedals, and many others), not the knock offs. I kind of have a thing for knobs (that sounds weird), and when you see these in person, compared to the cheapo knobs they are truly a thing of beauty. Industry standard Alpha pots, lock-washers on pots and jacks, 3PDT switch for “true” bypass, enclosed jacks, insulated 2.1mm 9V jack (Boss-style) with fiberboard mounted connections. Great looking sturdy enclosures, powder-coated, and hand-screened in the USA. Shipped with a new battery.
