Wren And Cuff – The Caprid – Distortion Pedal Review

This review was submitted by Guitar Jar contributor: Jason Lopez

The Caprid is an all hand-made effect pedal based on the legendary “Ram’s Head” Big Muff from the early to mid-70’s.

…You will NOT be disappointed!…

The Caprid - by Wren and CuffWren and Cuff main man Matt has painstakingly sought out to make the finest guitar pedals available… and he has succeeded!

I am a HUGE fan of the Big Muff and all its imitators. This pedal, is NOT an imitator… it is a true EMULATOR! All the original tones are there for the riffing!

I actually was selling a vintage pedal on Craigslist and Matt emailed me about trading for some of his gear. After some arrangements (and decisions on my part) I got a Caprid and I could NEVER be happier!

After playing my Caprid for the first time, I can honestly say that I am a definite Wren and Cuff disciple!

Features:

Handmade pedal w/ true bypass.

Carefully selected components in order to re-create the tone of the original Ram’s Head.

“Tropical Fish” caps, brown sound resistors.

On-Off Switch and copper PCB traces identical to the originals. Lifetime warranty.

Ease of use:

Very easy to use! Keep in mind that the Tone knob works like the originals in that it is to the left for bright and right for darker tones.

Sound Quality:

Amazing! A perfect 10 easily!

Reliability:

So far so good.

Given its lifetime warranty (unlike most pedal makers!), I shouldn’t have a problem.

Overall Rating:

If you’re looking to emulate the tones of Dinosaur Jr. and David Gilmour without scouring eBay and shelling out $600, the Caprid is the best option hands down.

You will NOT be disappointed!
