Wren and Cuff Suppa Phat Phuk
Wren and Cuff has released a new model that mixes the bass an guitar versions of its Phat Phuk dirty boost.
The Suppa Phat Phuk is a germanium/JFET booster. While it’s meant to lift in your overall level, during a chorus or bridge for example, it still includes a bit of bawdy coloration via the germanium transistor and 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. According to Wren and Cuff, this helps the Phat Phuk to remain consistent without worry of impedance issues caused by vintage style germanium based circuits.
- 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.
The made-in-the-USA, true-bypass Suppa Phat Phuk works with a 9V battery or power supply. It comes with a lifetime warranty at a retail price of $189,99.

- Everything About Guitar and Bass Pickups - Part 1 An essential part of electric stringed instruments, pickups are surrounded by a mysterious aura, lots of rumors and charm. For some, the instrument's wood and craftsmanship are at the core of its sound (considering that strings vibrate through the body and the neck), while the pickups only capture those vibrations and translate them more or less faithfully. For some others, the coloration provided by the electronic circuit is much more important and the role of the wood in solid-body instruments is minimal.
