What is the Garbage Face Jr pedal?
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.
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 the final 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. Following its release, there were requests for a stripped down three knob version of the distortion side of that pedal only.
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, with artwork that captures J’s love of bold colors and playful imagery.
You won’t be disappointed.
