When you think J Mascis and the warm, organic, textured electric guitar tones of Dinosaur Jr., there’s inevitably one effects pedal that springs to mind – the Big Muff. 

Sure, Mascis has been associated with other fuzz pedals in the past. Notably the Wren and Cuff Garbage Face, but, as the alt-rock icon says himself, “the Muff is always on.” His house is a veritable museum of rare and vintage Muff, so it makes perfect sense for the bods at Electro-Harmonix to make a signature Muff just for him.
