Electro-Harmonix Unveils the J Mascis Ram's Head Big Muff Pi

J Mascis' signature fuzz/sustainer pedal based on the celebrated '73 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 Golden State’s only real pop-culture competition has traditionally been New York City, and we know that the beaches and forests are better on the Pacific side. Recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order requiring that, starting in 2035, all new passenger cars and light trucks sold in the state must be zero-emissions vehicles. Once again, Cali leads by example, and what once was unthinkable becomes reality. Strangely, this EV revolution reminds me of the emergence of the electric guitar.
