Special edition fuzz / sustainer pedal reproduces legendary guitarist’s iconic sound
Electro-Harmonix introduces a J Mascis artist signature fuzz / sustainer pedal based on the celebrated 1973 Electro-Harmonix V2 Violet Ram’s Head Big Muff Pi. The J Mascis Ram’s Head Big Muff Pi produces the indulgent fuzz tone of equal parts thickness and clarity that J has utilized as his sonic center for decades.
“That’s my sound. The Muff is always on,” J says. “All distorted sounds begin with the Muff. That’s what I grew up playing so it’s kind of amazing to have my own signature one.”
The special edition pedal is housed in a die-cast chassis with a white and violet finish and includes true bypass switching, a 9V battery and the option of being powered by a 9V AC adapter.
The J Mascis Ram’s Head Big Muff is available at Reverb.com and features a U.S. street price of $131.50.
