Dave Friedman is the man behind the signature tones of rock icons Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens and Jerry Cantrell. Dave has been building, modding and repairing amplifiers for many of the world’s biggest stars for the past 25 years. Friedman’s innovative designs and meticulous construction have made him legendary in the world of professional touring musicians while earning him a loyal clientele from all over the world. One of Friedman’s mainstays has been modifying amps to each player’s specific tonal palette, and to consult with other established amplifier companies to improve their own designs.
Dave Friedman’s extensive knowledge and pursuit of tonal superiority inspired him to develop his own series of production amplifiers under the name Friedman Amplification. In the past, having Friedman build or modify your amp required a certain level of notoriety, but now his sonic wizardry is available to everyday players.
Each Friedman amplifier is built in the U.S.A. to Dave's exacting standards using hand selected components. After a rigorous burn in process, Dave inspects, tubes, plays and signs the chassis of every amplifier before shipping.
In business since 2006 building handmade guitar and bass effects, musician, electronic freak and major gear head, Matthew Holl started Wren and Cuff as a part time hobby. As word spread, his business grew and a one man obsession evolved into a full time job.
Wren and Cuff’s reputation for high quality effects with exceptional tone, that could truly take a beating, further solidified the small company as stand outs in a sea of boutique competitors.
It didn’t hurt that the pedals were great looking, free of redundant bells and whistles, and that Wren and Cuff’s reputation for exceptional service with focused attention to customer inquiries, questions and feedback, was unsurpassed.
In 2007, Matthew made Wren and Cuff his full time job, moved operations and hired employees to keep up with the growing demand. It wasn’t long until professionals from multiple genres welcomed Wren and Cuff pedals as part of their live and studio arsenals. Some of these notables include; J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr, Brian Ray of the Paul McCartney band, Troy Sanders of Mastodon, and many others.
Wren and Cuff continues to grow. Proud to create new, exciting, quality effects that keep pedal junkies mouth’s watering and those in need of straight forward, versatile effects, extremely satisfied.
When not running Wren and Cuff, Matt can be found making music, doing jiu-jitsu, and spending time with his wife, two children, and two dogs.
