The “Box of War” is a true recreation of the EH “Civil War” Soviet’s. The tone is in the details. Rest assured Wren & Cuff have spared nothing in researching this rare, much-loved, but cheaply made BM pi.
Very closely related to the Tall Font BM’s, the Civil War’s have a bit darker and a bit fuzzier tone. Like the Tall Fonts, they’ve got less output and are less fuzzy than most other muffs but are cherished for their woody sustain and presence. These beasts became a secret weapon for many but usually required two or three back-up pedals due to the poor quality components to be sure a pro-level player could make it through a tour using one on their board.
