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.

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.

I wanted to love this pedal I have expiermented with it off and on for more than a year. I bought 5 Way Huge products and Pork loin is by far the best in the line and only one I kept .This fuzz has so much volume ,bottom end crazy controls it is hard to find a decent sound for me that is. It is what I would say very modern and way to much gain.If you are looking for that huge loud wall of fuzz with no clarity what so ever . I do like the name and marketing of this line the design is awesome, looks cool and well built Maybe a great fuzz for some just not my cup of tea .I have gone back to Big PI ,fulltone 70 and a Joe Bonamassa fuzzface for my fuzzy goodness.

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

      I bought the Swollen Pickle about a month ago, and it has quickly become one my most used pedals. Extremely versatile, it can be either subtle or in your face. I love this thing - it took a bit to figure it out to get a premium sound, but after a little toying around, I got her making some beautiful noise.

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

      Based on what I've read, they were going for a Green M*ff-type sound. Though, I don't know that that's a totally accurate comparison.

      The Pickle is built like a tank. Way Huge pedals, in general, are some of the best constructed pedals out there. The true-bypass switch is completely noiseless. There are 5 knobs on the face of the pedal. The first three are familiar to anyone who has used an EHX pedal: Loudness, Filter (tone) and Sustain and work as you might expect. The other two are mid "Scoop" and "Crunch" mini knobs. There are also two internal trim pots:, one adjusts the sensitivity of the face knobs, and the other sweeps between "smooth" and "open" fuzz.

      I tend to hate complicated controls, and this many knobs is not something I typically find pleasant. But, you can get a ton of usable tones from this pedal. There is anything from Black Keys to Zeppelin to Pumpkins to be had. The crunch control, specifically, adds a lot of tonal diversity to the pedal, as does the internal smooth/open knob (though I found the more "open" tones to be too harsh). On the other hand, the controls are pretty sensitive, so it can be difficult to dial in the exact sound you want or lose it afterwards.

      I have two major complaints:

      1. The pedal has an overabundance of bass. Instead of some of the knobs they chose to include, I would have rather had an independent bass knob, as it would be nice to be able to roll off some bass without increasing the treble.

      2. This thing doesn't sustain nearly as well as the EHX Big M*ff. You can compensate somewhat by turning up the mids all the way, but it's really not the same, at least with my rig.

      Overall, I really like this pedal. The build quality is awesome. Tonally, for me, it's a kind of jack-of-all-traits-master-of-none. People who have the patience to dial in the exact sound they want using all 7 knobs will probably be able to get the perfect sound out of this thing, too.

          I am blown away at how perfect this fuzz pedal (made for guitars mind you) is on bass guitar... I have been thru 4 different overdrives/fuzzes (mostly bass made versions) that can't touch the tone of this beast!

          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.

          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.

          I liked this pedal and I would recommend it to anyone that has an amp that is compatible with it. Unfortunately, I really did not. Not among the best fuzz units that I have heard as the fuzz tone tends toward a dryness or a brittleness that I really didn't care for. On the other hand, it makes up for that to some degree in its versatility (it has 7 knobs). A very good rather than a great fuzz unit.
