Way Huge WHE401S Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz MK IIS
Manufacturer's ID: JD-WHE401S
What we say:
Way Huge are an eccentric brand of boutique pedals designed by madcap savant Jeorge Tripps. His unique designs always sound excellent and go just that little bit further than most other pedals whilst still always offering an inspiring and usable sound. Tripps has designed some classic pedals for other companies like MXR and Line 6 but his most revered creations are from his own stable, Way Huge.
One of Way Huge’s most popular pedals, the Swollen Pickle is a massive sounding fuzz with a ton of attitude. As popular with bassists as it is with guitarists, this mad fuzz doesn’t have a volume control: it has a Loudness control. Take that as a statement of intent.
This is certainly one of the beefiest fuzz pedals we’ve ever had the pleasure of pummelling our amp with. The mids and low end are insane! And the gain levels are just frankly daft. If you turn the Sustain up full and do the same with the Crunch knob, a vortex to a dark parallel netherworld opens up before you, sucking in all matter like a black hole.
A dedicated Scoop control takes away all of your precious mids for a disgustingly antisocial fuzz sound than lies somewhere between Dimebag Darrell and War of the Worlds.
This MkII pedal also hides two further controls under the bonnet: a Clip control smoothes out the fuzz (or indeed does the opposite when turn the control the other way) and a Voice control determines how brutal the mid-scoop actually is. Certain settings of this pedal made us laugh out loud, so incredulous were we that such a thing could exist.
The Swollen Pickle MkII is an incredible pedal. If you even slightly like riffs, fuzz and maybe even downtuning, you are missing a massive trick by not checking this out. Quickly.
• Smaller, more pedalboard-friendly housing
• Take your signal from mild crunch to high gain Armageddon
• Scoop, Crunch, and internal Voice and Clip controls for fine tweaking your fuzz sound
