Electro-Harmonix has introduced a J Mascis artist signature fuzz / sustainer pedal based on the celebrated 1973 Electro-Harmonix V2 Violet Ram's Head Big Muff Pi. They say that 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.
J Mascis had this to say, "That's my sound. The Muff is always on. 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.
Pricing and Availability:
The EHX J Mascis Ram's Head Big Muff is available at Reverb.com and features a U.S. street price of $131.50.
