Development of the Pickle Pie B bass fuzz pedal all started when Wren and Cuff began getting a large percentage of Pickle Pie sales from bass players who knew the Pickle’s reputation as a “guitar” pedal that could handle the low frequencies of the bass, and give a nice spongy fuzz much better than most of the Muff family.
Even though most were happy with this pedal, W&C had always wanted to take a stab at doing some tweaks to The Pickle to create a pedal with a much different voice, but one that still uses the same basic skeleton as the PP, and strives to resolve many of the common quandaries bassists come across in their search for a fuzz that really works for their instrument and their playing situation.
Here’s the rundown on some of the changes made to the first PPie:
-A FET buffered active clean-boost.
-No “drop out” when you kick on the fuzz when playing live. Helps give the feel of running two amps, one wet, one dry for those of us who can’t afford two SVT’s, and/or can’t lug two bass amps down to the local club.
-Totally changed FET-hybrid clip sections.
-Along with great sounding fuzz, this specific clipping combo helps the fuzz to mesh with the clean signal in a natural way, instead of just sitting on top of the dry signal like some fuzzers with clean blends can do.
-Altered tone-stack range geared specifically for bass.
-A widened range of usable tones from the “shape” knob. The pedal overall has a much less pronounced mid-scoop which helps it to retain presence in a live playing situation.
Altered saturation (fuzz) knob to make it highly usable at lower gain settings.
-Roll the fuzz back, and things still sound crisp, also tighter lows at high fuzz settings. I know everyone says this, but The PP “B” really can go from a dirty, gritty, slightly over-driven clean-blended bass sound, to fully saturated, watch out for feedback, drop-C meltdown, and everything in-between.
-Various cap and resistor changes.
-Several core changes to the circuit to even better accommodate the bass guitar.
-And usual quality you expect from Wren and Cuff.
-Genuine Davies “Daka-ware” knobs. (like the old WH pedals, and many others), not the knock offs.
There are also industry standard Alpha pots, lock-washers on pots and jacks, 3PDT switch for “true” bypass, enclosed jacks, insulated 2.1mm 9V jack (Boss-style) with fiberboard mounted connections. Great looking sturdy enclosures, powder-coated, and hand-screened in the USA. Shipped with a new battery.
