Overview

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 pedal board-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 pedal boards 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 pedal is like a ornery baboon grabbing a mother's newborn baby and smashing its head against a tree. Then eating it like its cantaloupe. Its. That. Brutal.

Most fuzz for the $$$

By Ryan Cox

from Columbus, OH

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

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.

Cool Fuzz pedal

By Carl

from Annapolis, Md.

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

I have had the Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz pedal for little over month now and I like the sounds I get out of it. I played it GC for a while had to get it, it impressed me. I can get the cool psychodelic sound to a bluesy sound to an early 1970's sound. The pedal is really versitile and I have fun playing with the different sounds I can get with it. Really easy to adjust the 2 knobs inside the box. The pedal sounds really good with my Fender Strat using the Seymour Duncan Hot Rails pick up. If you are looking for a great fuzz box, the Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz is the one to get, and I'm a big Boss pedal user. Only downside is the pedal is pricey.

Versatile fuzz that should be tested

By Jason

from NYC

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

The Swollen Pickle is one of the most aggressive fuzzes I have played. This thing has tons of power behind it and can really push your amp. This fuzz is NOT subtle at all, and depending on why you're using a fuzz will decide if you need this pedal or not. The versatility comes from the tons of control available. The "Sustain" knob adds sustain and "fuzziness" to your sound. Loudness is obviously volume. Filter is a band-pass tone filter. The scoop knob lets you control mid-range and the crunch controls the compression. With all these knobs you get a lot of variety.

Versatile Fuzz

By Andrew F

from Lafayette, IN

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

I've played a lot of fuzz pedals and the only one that I even slightly enjoyed was the Keeley Fuzz Head, but it's not worth the price to me. However, the Swollen Pickle is definitely worth the price! I believe it's one of the most versatile fuzz pedals on the market. All the controls, including the internal trim pots, play off of each other to make sounds that are just wonderful. If you're looking to buy a fuzz pedal and aren't really sure what to get, this one is an excellent start to your search and might very possibly end your search.

Fuzz for days!

By Kevin

from Siloam Springs, AR

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

I've spent the last couple days playing with this pedal. I've never been much for fuzz type pedals but this one breaks the mold. Such a versatile pedal. You can go from warm, clean vintage tube amp sound like you were using a P90 at the neck to some surprisingly heavy distortion. My only issue is that the low end gets pretty muddy when running the pedal at high levels of crunch, scoop, and sustain. But I run an equalizer so thats no big deal. The boutique looks and durability are great, the color is awesome and definatley stands out on your board. If you want to add a whole new dimension to your sound no matter what you play, this pedal can do it!

Swollen Pickle.

By SoCalDeals4u

from los angeles, ca

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

I originally purchased a zvex fuzz factory based on you tube videos and returned it the very next day. It was a great pedal in its own right but just too over the top for what I play. I churned it for a swollen pickle and all I can say is wow. This pedal is amazing. I love the vesatility this pedal has too offer. By manipulating all the different settings you can conjure up some pretty sweet fuzz tones. It also has internal trim pots that allow you to further manipulate the sound. I have it placed after my ocd distortion pedal and it sounds amazing. I tried it in different locations, 1st in the loop, before the wah, after the wah, etc, and it sounded decent in most locations but sounded best after my distortion. I looks and feels very sturdy, built like a tank. The pedal swith is different from most switches out there in that you don't hear a click when depressing it. I would definatley recommend this pedal to anyone looking to add another element to your sound.

I like my pickles swollen and fuzzy...

By Kenny

from Ambler, PA

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

I got this pedal a month ago and i love it. the internal knobs just make it so much more versatile than a regular fuzz pedal. it can do whatever sound you want it to do for you, and it sounds amazing. this thing is pretty sturdy, the only 2 problems i have are the light is REALLY bright, so dont look at it directly. and i had to leave the rubber feet off it so i could velcro it to my pedalboard, otherwise its flawless. its not too big but its definately not a tiny thing, so it shouldnt be a problem to fit on a pedalboard. and the input/output on the bottom make it easy to place on the bottom, which is nice cause it doesnt force you to put it in the middle of a pedalboard like most pedals. if you want a good fuzz pedal thats versatile, sturdy, and not a pain in the wallet, get this.

The real deal.

By David

from hartford CT

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

This pedal really is amazing. I spent my time at GC trying every fuzz they had. This pedal shined the brightest. The only pedal I liked more was the ZVex Fuzz Factory but for twice the price, The SP is the best. I have a strat and the sound difference between the neck and bridge pick up is HUGE. This pedal is great.

Versatile

By SCOTT MACDONALD

from Phoenix, AZ

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

I compared this to the Zvex Mastotron, which my buddy has. The Mastotron has a more distinctive and richer fuzz tone, which I think is better. However, I prefer the versatility of the Pickle. It has a fuzz and crunch option, with a Loudness feature as well. Combined with my TC Electronic Mojomojo distortion pedal, it gives me that old school tone that I've been trying to recreate. I may eventually buy the Zevex to have the best of both worlds. I recommend either fuzz pedals.

Solid Pedal

By Jason Murphy

from Chicago

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

I was looking to get some more Hendrixesque fuzz but I wanted something with more sound shaping options. This pedal delivers and then some. There are 7 knobs so dialing in the exact sound you are looking for will take a while, but once you get it, your guitar will sound amazing. There is such a great range with this thing, a few minor adjustments will take you through the history of Rock and Roll from Cream to The Smashing Pumpkins and everything in between. The Pedal is built solidly, I've had if for a few months now and have had no issues with it not working or getting dented after dropping it or anything. Way Huge and Jim Dunlop make a solid product. I would not recommend this for someone who wants a pedal to come out of the box ready to go without spending time to dial in the sound they want.

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

This product is amazing. I have mostly used boss pedal effects in the past and while they are great for the money, I have been blown away by the quality of sound im getting from this pedal. I am using a 65 DRRI
And getting fantastic fuzz from this pedal. It's also one of the more versatile pedals I've ever used, you can get anything from a mild, light and bright fuzz to dark, heavy, soul shredding, eardrum crushing metal. I love using it with my cry baby wah. You will not be disappointed if you buy this. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I think it's too big but I found out later they actually make a smaller one (Not sure if it sounds the same though). Also, had a little bit of a longer wait than anticipated because they inexplicably shipped this separate from the rest of my order.

    This pedal is great! It sounds amazing! I have no complaints regarding the pedal. I would like to mention that the packaging the pedal came with was not the original packaging(box,booklet,etc.) but rather the MKIIS version. The serial number on the box does not match the one inside of the pedal
