The Wren and Cuff Eye See 78 is a big muff type effect pedal, based on the rare EHX OP-AMP Big Muff π. This version having only been manufactured for 2 years, it is quite sought after because it is the little scabby of the lot! Indeed, between 1978 and 79, EHX decided to stop using traditional transistors to switch to more modern electronics (and to reduce costs). Mike Matthew therefore decided to use operational amplifiers (IC) instead of the usual 4 transistors (4 stage). The result? A unique muff, made in only 2000 copies!

Very widely used by Billy Corgan, it is the basis of the sound of the Smashing Pumpkins, especially on the Gish album for those who would like to know how this Eye See 78 sounds.

Aesthetically, it uses a classic box of compact format with a Volume, a Tone and a Distortion. It is also equipped with the Tone Bypass like the original. This Tone Bypass allows you to bypass the EQ which generates a boost in volume and midrange frequencies while giving a more "raw" side to the signal that comes out. Inside, it's typical Wren and Cuff, it's well done, with a quality PCB and components and above all, the same ICs from 1978 as the original, namely an RC4558NB and an UA741.

So how does this all sound? Basically, she's a muff on steroids. More gain, more aggressive, more “grungy”, perfect for grunge and punk bands. We find the same type of massive distortion as on the older models but with a more "sharp" side and a little more metallic. It also sounds straighter and less squashed giving it a more modern sonic signature perfect for big sound. As Bill Corgan says, this muff is "the ultimate super-gain VROOOM sound!" »

Have the Eye See 78, Wren and Cuff confirms its reputation as specialists in vintage BigMuff reissues. This modernized version, manufactured in a very beautiful way and sold at a more than reasonable price, is an excellent choice for those looking for an indestructible version of this "high-gain" oriented model. The brand has succeeded in perfectly replicating vintage pedals while adding rock-solid reliability and extended versatility. For fans of the genre!
