Effects - Verellen - Bill Lawrence Pickups - Wren and Cuff - Electro-Faustus - Abasi Concepts
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.
Electro-Faustus LLC started back in 2008 when two friends (Joe Vella and Eric Kessel) decided on a whim, to try and sell a few oscillators. We sold a few and then a few more and decided to keep at it and we’ve been creating outrageous musical instruments and effects ever since. Our goal is to spread the joy of noise-making through our fine products. Used alone or incorporated into a preexisting setup, our noise devices add a mixture of power and uniqueness to any artist’s sound palate. From bedroom recording maniacs to established recording artists live or in the studio, Electro-Faustus is the key to sonic madness!
Our devices are Proudly handmade in New York, U.S.A!
