Suppa Phat Phuk - Wren and Cuff
Germanium warmth and charcter at yout fingertips.
The Suppa Phat Phuk is a germanium/JFET booster. A unique sounding pedal which adds a beautiful sheen to your guitar or bass’ top end and a bit of grit to the overall tone. It’s a fantastic pedal for situations where you want a lift in your overall level, during a chorus or bridge for example. You’ll also get a bit of bawdy coloration via the germanium transistor. It is not intended to be “transparent”. The Suppa features a modern JFET buffer at the input which keeps the pedal impedance-friendly when it comes to all guitars and basses. This helps the Phat Phuk to remain consistent without worry of impedance issues caused by vintage style germanium based circuits. Something else that was considered when creating the Suppa Phat Phuk. Many clean-boosts offer way too much boost in my opinion. In any normal playing situation, including intentionally slamming the front end of a tube amp to induce the amp’s natural overdrive, one really only needs a hefty thump to get the job done. There’s nothing wrong with having a large amount of volume on tap, but a problem that can sometimes occur is a lack of ability to fine tune the amount of boost you want. When the sweep of the knob goes from zero to melt-down with one turn of the knob, it gets tough to really dial in a precise amount of boost. Also a slight bump of the boost knob (with a foot or nervous “live show” jitters) can send things out of control. I know because its happened to me. Went for the big chorus during a song, hit the clean boost (not mine, this was long before Wren and Cuff existed) and tore the heads off the people in the front, pissed off the sound man, and pretty much ruined that song. Therefore, the volume sweep was reduced with the Phatty. You still get a big gob of gain, and probably won’t ever need to run the pedal “at 11″, but the trade -off is worth the extra control. Just an example of what Wren and Cuff prides itself on: pedals that sound superior, look beautiful, can take a beating, and are made with the “real world” player in mind. In other words: Attention to detail.
• Volume: Adjusts the output level
• Bias: Allows you to adjust the voltage feeding the germanium transistor. Lets you fine-tune a more clean sounding boost, or dial in the dirt for a more gritty overall tone
• Phatness: This is a high-pass filter allowing you to boost or cut the lows.
• True hard-wire bypass
• 9V battery or 2.1mm adapter
• Made for Bass and Guitar
• Made in the USA
