Way Huge Finally Release MKIII Smalls Edition of the Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz

Big Muff Style FuzzFuzzWay Huge Effects
2020GPXWayHugeSmallsSowllenPickle700.jpg

This is probably one of my last of the 2020 NAMM-specific roundups as it does not look like details are forthcoming imminently for the other more prototype category of pedals featured at NAMM - including the Friedman Smallbox Pedal, Hamstead Soundworks Zenith, and various leaked Electro-Harmonix varieties - I only usually post when we have significant details and demos / soundfiles.

 

I always thought the core-line Way Huge pedals were somewhat unnecessarily over-sized in their original enclosures - and this put me off acquiring them. You should know by know how big an advocate I am of the proper compact enclosure formats, and I was delighted when Jeorge Tripps and Dunlop started brining out the more elegantly shaped ’Smalls’ editions of those pedals.

 

There were always 2 Way Huge pedals I was particularly keen on, the supposed V6 Big Muff style Swollen Pickle, and Germanium Tone Bender style Havalina Fuzz - which still remains to be shrunk and re-issued.

 

Everything is in place here per the former larger edition Swollen Pickle - same 3 knobs - Loudness, Sustain, Filter, and same 2 switches - Crunch and Scoop. Where the Crunch allows you to up the degree of Compression / Distortion, and the Scoop drops the mids from a more neutral EQ curve. The only difference really is the more pedalboard-friendly enclosure size.

 

The reason why this Muff type is so well-loved is because of the incredible variety of tones onboard - from textured overdrive to proper searing fuzz-distortion. This one is already on my acquisition/wishlist, and I will look to acquire itwhen it starts shipping - sometime before the end of February according to statements made at the show.
