      Way Huge Electronics WHE401 Swollen Pickle mkII Jumbo Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal (155063)
Availability:  


More fuzz than a moldy peach!

The Swollen Pickle mkII Jumbo Fuzz is the most sought-after and corpulent Way Huge guitar effects pedal, and now it's back! A charter member of the Way Huge line has returned, and just like when it debuted in 1997, it still has "more fuzz than a moldy peach!" The Swollen Pickle mkII doles out super high-gain fuzz with copious amounts of smooth low-end to all who dare plug into it.

With a twist of the Sustain control, the Swollen Pickle mkII Jumbo Fuzz takes you from mild crunch to Armageddon. The Filter control retains its trademark insane range of heavily band-pass-filtered tones, distinguished by remarkable girth and sizzle, and the Loudness puts out enough volume to clobber any amp.

Updated Swollen Pickle mkII Jumbo Fuzz features include a tone stack Scoop control that elicits classic Swollen Pickle guitar pedal mid-scoop or a flat mid-frequency sweep, and a Crunch knob to adjust the compression intensity of the fuzz.

Finally, under the hood, the Swollen Pickle mkII fuzz pedal has 2 internal mini controls—Voice sets the intensity of the external Scoop control from light to heavy mid cut, and Clip varies between two sets of clipping diodes for smooth or opened fuzz sustain.

Each Way Huge effect pedal is rigorously tested to ensure quality, durability, and reliability to deliver many years of exceptional performance. All Way Huge pedals offer a heavy-duty footswitch with quiet relay-based true bypass, a blue LED indicator, 2.1mm power jack with AC protection, easy access (non-detachable) battery door, a super-duty .09 aluminum anodized chassis, high grade components, great tone, and a cool name.

Launched in 1992 by Jeorge Tripps, Way Huge Electronics began as a result of Tripps' search for great tone, and his desire to perform with reliable, rugged and pedalboard-friendly effects that had the magic of his coveted vintage pedals. The very first pedal—simply labeled "Fuzz Box"—was quickly followed by such staples to the product line as the Red Llama Overdrive, Foot Pig Fuzz and Green Rhino Overdrive II, which quickly found their way into the hands and onto the pedalboards of the world's guitar elite. Ensuing years would see the introduction of pedals such as the Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz, Aqua-Puss Analog Delay, and the Saffron Squeeze. Over the span of a few years, Tripps helped revolutionize what would later be known as the 'boutique' effects market. In late December 1999, the company closed its doors as Tripps pursued other opportunities, sending demand for Way Huge products soaring, and driving online auctions well into the hundreds—sometimes thousands—for used Way Huge pedals. Now teaming up up with Dunlop, Way Huge pedals will once again be available to the masses, so all can enjoy their finely tuned electronics, high-grade circuitry and road ready construction, built under the watchful eye of Mr. Huge himself.

Way Huge Electronics WHE401 Swollen Pickle mkII Jumbo Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal Features:

  • Heavy-Duty footswitch
    True bypass
    Blue LED indicator
    2.1mm power jack with AC protection
    Easy access battery door
    Aluminum anodized chassis
    Cliff jacks
    Military spec Teflon wire

  • Unusual, but awesome

    As reviewed by Nick Perry-Guetti on 9/10/2012

    You can get any kind of fuzz sound you want out of this pedal, but what I was after was the sound of the old vintage Jordan Electronics Bosstone, a rich, smooth, creamy, elastic-sounding fuzz as used by Randy California on a lot of Spirit albums. The WHSP has this sound when you first plug in & play through it, because one of the internal trim pots--the clip control--is set all the way to the left (smooth). After some experimentation with various left-of-center settings, that's where I keep it, unlike many people who buy this pedal. A much more open fuzz sound is possible, so bear that in mind if you try this pedal in the store and it sounds too smooth for you. On the other hand, I adjust the voice control (the other internal pot) all the way to the right, although I usually have the scoop control at 12 o'clock; I find this creates a less focused, more ambient tone that's hard to describe but goes much better with my chimey Vox tube amp. The voice control basically has two clear settings: all the way clockwise or all the way counterclockwise; anything in the middle is muddy, so treat it like a two-way switch, not a pot at all. WARNING: the loudness control is not your run-of-the-mill slight boost at 12 o'clock pot you're probably expecting it to be. On my rig, unity volume is a bit left of 9 o'clock on this pedal, and 9 is a definite boost already, so they're not kidding when they say it can "clobber" your amp; if you're not ready for it, it can do the same to your ears, so don't start with the loudness at noon! I tend to like the filter pointed northwest for a kinda thick, up-through-the-floor type of vibe, but I sometimes put it higher depending on which pickup I plan on using more of and I suspect it would vary with different guitars, too. I also hear this pedal is good for playing a bass through as well, and I believe it, as the filter does go low enough to be beyond realistic low guitar frequencies; I can't wait to try that, actually...this pedal might convince me to buy a bass! Where was I? Oh yeah: the sustain control: I adjust this a lot, as you can't really roll it off with your guitar's volume: it's too strong for that, not like my modded TS9 and M-78 Badass pedals. Having the sustain all the way counterclockwise produces a bluesy crunch, but with more teeth, claws and hair than you'd get from an overdrive--a lot like Norman Greenbaum, but more pick-responsive and hardly coloring my guitar's tone at all (but remember, I do use a Fryette Valvulator to buffer my signal, so that could be why). Having it all the way to the right is full-on, straight, slick, siren-like wail, and somewhere in the middle is that violin bridge and crystal flute neck tone I like to hear. Now, I know that a lot of people hate this pedal and return it, and I can see that it's not for everyone. There is a scale in the school of fuzz pedals: if you like it rough and ready with not too many controls to dicker around with, then you should probably get an MXR M-173 instead (or maybe a Dunlop Fuzzface, if you don't mind the fact that it only runs on batteries). If you love to dicker with controls all night long and want a sort of cleaner, robotic sounding fuzz, then get the ZVex Fuzz Factory (a pedal I couldn't stand when I tried it). But if you're firmly in the middle ground between those two extremes, I can't recommend the Way Huge pedal highly enough. No two guitarists need sound the same playing through it because if its adjustability, and its range of tone and grittiness goes from rough to smooth, warm to sharp and anywhere in between. I took the rubber feet off it so I could velcro it to my board. Also, it doesn't accentuate the AC hum of my P90 pickups too much, which is a definite plus for me. It's built like a tank and seems the most structurally solid and dependable pedal I own to date.

  • Most fuzz for the $$$

    As reviewed by Ryan Cox on 1/5/2014

    So I went to GC the other day in search of a fuzz pedal in the sub $200 price range. I spent about an hour playing with various pedals from Dunlop, MXR, and others. The Swollen Pickle immediately stood out from the other pedals. While the other pedals had few adjustments,the Swollen Pickle offers a wide range of sounds with just a minor tweaks to its various knobs. I was easily able to find that Black Sabbath sound I was looking for. I also found some tones that I don't think I've ever heard from a simple fuzz pedal. If you're like me and you want an aggressive fuzz sound for drop tunings and solos then look no further. The Swollen Pickle easily has the most fuzz available of any of the pedals i tested. You can really kick up the bass with this pedal, and probably blow your amp if you turn the volume know much past 12 o'clock. With all of the tones available, plus the great looks, and solid build quality, I see no reason to buy any other fuzz pedal in this price range. I'm not big on effects, but fuzz is one you gotta have, and for the price the Swollen Pickle is king IMO.
