For this week's edition of the Hi-Fives we caught up with the man behind Wren and Cuff; Matthew Holl. Give it a read to catch his take on our series of random top five questions.
Top five things about running a company
Top five all-time favorite circuits
(I’m assuming you mean other than Wren and Cuff pedals)
Top five people named Matthew
I’m the only Matthew I know anything about.
Top five currently deceased guitar players
I don’t have 5 favorite deceased players. Not just saying that to sound cool, and I love many of the grandfathers of rock guitar, its just that so many of “The Greats” have been piped in to my head for 40 years, that I kind of have no perspective on them anymore. I’ll give you my top 5 players alive or dead though.
Top five pedals that should never have been made
I can find something good in pretty much any pedal. There are a couple honest answers I could give, but it’d probably cause me some grief on a business level if I started naming them.
Top five jobs if you weren’t building pedals and amps
Top five songs you love but wouldn’t play when anyone is around
Honestly there aren’t any. Now that I’m older and have kids, I could care less about what people hear me listen to. The other day I drove around with my daughter blasting Katy Perry and singing along to “Roar” at the top of our lungs. I got nothing to hide.
Top five things to spend five bucks on
I wish I was interesting enough for someone to actually care about this, but here goes:
Top five things that confuse you
Top five meals when you’re home alone
Whatever five things in the house require the least effort to make.
