Expectations exceeded  (By Fuzz Lover)

I use mainly low end instruments and with this pedal you get great expansive fuzz warmth with a lot more bite. The bypass switch kicks everything into an unexpected gear that other muff era's don't have. I have an original V4 Big Muff to compare against and the Eye See Pi holds up well, perhaps better in some ways. It is built to last and will give you damn near the same sound you are looking for without all of the vintage pains that the original will. Wren and Cuff nailed this one, no question. They won my respect with this one. (Posted on 10/21/15)

The value of this muff is really that it isn't subtle. This thing blasts without getting muddy and somehow to my ear it's got this inspirational quality. I wrote a song sampling it here in Chicago.
It blooms and expands in wave like roaring sonic sets.
I personally hate Corgin who to me never lets that randomness wash. (Whinning gets old fast for me Billy..)
The essence of a great guitar pedal amp combo is inspiration and this is unlike any other fuzz. (Posted on 10/15/15)

Not only can you nail the Smashing Pumpkins sound, but all tones from this pedal are great and usable. This is my first pedal from Wren & Cuff and it does not disappoint. Like the other reviewer I thought the price was high, but now I don't regret it because it is a great pedal. I can't wait to try more or their products! (Posted on 8/17/15)
Very good sound, great quality but not in the top of it's kind to so expensive.  (By Subtle System)

This is a great, great pedal, don't get me wrong... sounds very creamy and the knobs are very useful and responsive, but when you can get pedals like the Black Arts Super Pharaoh for about the same price.. And I'm not saying these two effects are similar.. but I really believe as a lover of fuzz, that the creativity and craftsmanship that went into creating such a massive Fuzz with Germanium And Silicone option since to be more appropriately priced... I still love the I see Pi, and I love using it... I don't have room for it on my pedalboard since I already have 4 fuzzes in there and those to me seem more useful then this one... I almost want to say this is a one trick pony like the old Big Muff that emulates... So, If you are an extreme fuzz lover like I am, buy it, play it and love it... If you are new to fuzz or are trying some new pedals I would definitely try other great Fuzzes available at lower prices... I also DIY pedals, So I can tell you that the Fuzz circuit is one of the simplest of all time, but this one is the exception since it uses an integrated circuit... which is a lot more complicated, and I guess modern for this kinds of pedals...
I would try the Black Arts Pharaoh, Way Huge Swollen Pickle, ZVEX Fat Fuzz Factory or Mastotron before buying this one..
This is all subjective and I'm sure a lot of people will disagree with me on this.. But it's definitely cool looking, with a monster sound... just not the best fuzz I've heard. (Posted on 8/17/15)
Amazing Tone  (By Michael)

I love the tone that this thing puts out. It's quickly becoming my go-to pedal for anything rock-oriented. You can get many different flavors of fuzz/distortion out of this box. The only negative that I can think of is the price. $230 is rather costly. However, after playing it I do not regret spending that much on it. (Posted on 8/12/15)

Wren and Cuff Eye See Pi

Talking shop about Muff-style fuzz with any guitar player that knows his or her stuff is a relatively straightforward conversation. Aside from the myriad of variants, the talk usually evolves into transistors and who used which variant.

There was a curious time in Muff history, when the circuit designed changed drastically. That time was 1976, when the transistors inside were scrapped in favor of operational amplifiers, otherwise known as op-amps, which are integrated circuits, or ICs. This particular variant was only manufactured for around two years, and as such, only a few thousand ever made it out of NYC alive.

Fast forward to 2014, and the Muff masters at Wren and Cuff have crafted the definitive version of the non-transistorized fuzzbox. They call it the Eye See Pi.

Apart from the lack of transistors, the Eye See Pi features a drastically different clipping section for a monstrously woolly sound, such as the one popularized by Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins on Siamese Dream. As expected, the sound of the Eye See Pi is different from a standard Muff circuit. While most vintage muffs are a little “sweeter” sounding, the Eye See Pi is certainly crunchier and more ballsy than a standard Muff.

In 1978, a switch was added to the back of the original, and the Eye See Pi includes this switch as well. The control is labeled as “Tone Bypass” on both old and new pedals. Essentially, it removes the passive tone stack from the circuit for a midrange boost and a significantly more raw and open sound. Of course, this switch renders the tone control useless, but we’re guessing that in this mode, you won’t miss it—this switch is just too cool. 

If you’re looking for a largely-untamed IC-based fuzz and distortion machine, with the ability to adapt to most genres of music under the sun, look no further than the Eye See Pi.

Wren and Cuff Eye See Pi Features:

  • Authentic recreation of the 1976 IC Big Muff from the masters of the circuit, Wren and Cuff
  • Tone Bypass switch for a different flavor of Muff
  • 5.5" x 3.5" x 1.5" (excluding knobs)
  • Rugged steel enclosure
  • True bypass switching
  • Standard 9v center-negative operation
