A classic pedal matched with a guitar legend for an awesome sound.

A bonafide guitar legend by any standard, J Mascis' band Dinosaur Jr. toured with and influenced many of the bands that defined the '90s—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, and 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 building blocks 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 two years in the making, the Garbage Face J Mascis Signature effects pedal is here. A part-by-part recreation of J’s number-one Muff since 1987, this is not just any '70s EHX Ram’s Head. J’s pedal is an odd bird with parts values that are "incorrect" and component values that have drifted far from their original values during its near 50 year journey.


  • On one side of the pedal is a replication of J’s favorite germanium treble booster that he uses to slam the input of said muffer

  • Nestled in between the two is a second volume knob with a footswitch to let you bounce between two Muff volume outputs
