The Pork Loin Overdrive Guitar Pedal incorporates 2 distinct tonal pathways that are blended together - a modern soft clipping overdrive and a modified classic British preamp for clean. At the heart of the Pork Loin's overdrive path is a soft clipped BiFET overdrive gain stage with a passive Tone control, rounded out by a Curve function that gives the user freedom to fine-tune corner frequencies. The Volume control regulates the masses of pork power that exude from its space age circuitry, leaving room for the Clean control to blend in its warm glistening clean tones. Additionally, the Pork Loin has three internal mini controls: Filter and Voice deliver extensive tonal shaping possibilities, while the overdrive Mix control allows the Pork Loin to be run as a clean preamp. With a wide range of dynamic tones from supple and clear to warm and punchy, the Pork Loin's outstanding features make it one extremely in-demand guitar effect pedal on the market today.
Each Way Huge effect pedal has been rigorously tested to ensure quality, durability, and reliability and will deliver many years of exceptional performance. All pedals feature: heavy-duty footswitch with quiet relay-based true bypass, blue LED indicator, 2.1mm power jack with AC protection, easy access (non-detachable) battery door, super-duty .09 aluminum anodized chassis, high grade components, great tone and 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.

This is a great overdrive pedal for someone just looking to add a bit of girth to their tone. It is very natural sounding thanks to the fact that you can add in clean sound like a sparkle drive. This pedal in tandem with a Barber TonePress helps me maintain a lot of articulation and clarity.
Excellent as a clean boost or overdrive. The range of possibilities of this pedal are higher than many. It allows you to mix the clean signal with the drive, which makes it a great pedal to put before a dirty amp or another dirt, fuzz, distortion pedal. It also features internal 'set and forget' knobs that allow you to tailor this pedal to your own needs. These include a filter that adjusts the sound of the clean boost, drive mix, and drive presence. It sounded good out of the box, but tweaking the internal knobs made it exactly what I needed.
Let me start by saying if you haven't done your homework or have owned any overdrive pedals in the past, you might have a hard time dialing in a good tone at first. This isn't your normal 3 knob TS-style overdrive. There are 8 total knobs on this pedal with 3 of them internal, which require quite a bit of balancing to get the exact tones your looking for. If I would turn up the overdrive, the volume comes down, tone (high-end roll off) dials back, clean rolls up, and curve comes up. If you're willing to take the time to dial all these in, the results can be very rewarding. The tone characteristics of this overdrive is very vintage and is geared more toward fattening your low-mid range and tailoring your high end, therefore I would recommend this to lead guitarists as a tool to saturate the front end of your amp thickening those lead lines on an already-overdriven amp, and smoothing out non-palm muted chords for rhythm work. If your looking for more sustain or a tighter "chug" when palm muting then there are other overdrives on the market that do better, but the Pork Loin can pass doing those too. And HOW CAN YOU PASS UP A PURPLE PEDAL!?
I love this pedal. Its got so many fine tuning elements that with just a little bit of effort you can set it up for your tone. It gives me a nice creamy overdrive with my les paul going into my Vox AC15. Buy this pedal! Its amazing! Oh one note. When I bought it the internal trim was set for the overdrive all the way down, so make sure you adjust that to your liking. I have it almost all the way up now and then use the outside overdrive knob to get the different amounts of overdrive I want. Bascially the internal trim allows the outside knob to be more fine tunable. Its a great pedal with a lot of options and feels very sturdy. I run mine with a Visual Sound 1-spot adaptor and no noise problems.
This thing is awful. Nightmare to set up...way to many adjustment factors. Don't buy it. It's only good as a clean boost with the drive all the way down. Curve knob is worthless. I hate it so much.
This pedal is amazing. Nothing else can really even be said about it. I bought this pedal today without ever even testing it in the store first and brought it home and hooked it straight up to my amp. Straight out of the box, the tone was simply astounding. Fiddling with the knobs for a bit, I found that I could move from a clean boost to a really nicely overdriven tone in just the turn of a dial. Works amazingly as a boost for any other pedals that you may have as well. BUY IT.
I have often wondered if I could ever find a good overdrive pedal. The Pork loin more than meets my personal needs. It has such versatility when it comes to creating mild to outright aggressive overdriven tone. I had bought the swollen pickle but it was really of no use to me (I didn't need fuzz as much as I just needed that amp being pushed sound) Yes the pedal takes some time to dial in, but once you find what you are looking for it's there. Definitely worth stopping into a store and checking out for yourself in person.
This pedal is the best pedal I have used by far. A lot of the overdrive pedals I've used normally just give boost, this pedal gives you tone along with that boost and you can choose your own specs by doing a little modification in the back. This pedal is meant for any kind of player.
Just got this today. Amazing pedal! At first I was a bit worried how it would sound through my rig (PRS cust 22, Mesa triple rec through two 4x12's) but it sounds amazing! This is comming from a T-Rex user. This thing is right up there with them. Like the other review said, it takes a lil getting used to but it is well worth it. But dont take our words for it, try it out for yourself.
This is by far one of the most thought out and solid pedals I've ever seen let alone played. If you have to see it to believe it just look at the circuitry on this pedal. I didn't find one area where they cut corners. And that's evident when in use. The playability of this pedal is unbelievable and is consistently usable from a clean boost, warm british fuzz or an aggressive overdrive. It takes a bit...ok a lot of time to get used to the 8 knobs but if you have some time and patience you will find some of the sweetest tones you've ever heard. If you are thinking about it, this is a no brainer. Just get it!
