ZVEX Wooly Mammoth Hand Painted WM-S175 (Pre-Owned)
Sensitive and touchy, this bass fuzz has tremendous bottom end and a beautiful harmonic structure that sounds blistering with a guitar too!
This Mammoth comes with an added sense of grandeur, sporting a unique hand-painted Wooly Mammoth finish.
Condition ReportA very cool variant on a classic ZVEX Fuzz Pedal! This pedal has some very light scuffing on the edges of the bottom corners and some light scratches on the clear coat of the finish. The hand painted decal and parameter labels are however very clear and undamaged. The pedal comes included with original box.
SpecificationAlways be careful when pinching Mammoths
In the leftmost position, the waveshape is quite symmetrical which produces a smooth creamy sound. Turning it up slightly introduces lovely intermodulation distortion. Turning it clockwise narrows the waveshape into asymmetrical pulses, making the tone reedier and brassier. This also introduces an unusually smooth 'gating' action, which gives you an absolutely eerie silence between notes. The harmonic structure can be radically altered using the "PINCH" knob. It adjusts the pulse width of the waveform. At most settings you will notice that low frequency pressure is preserved. This circuit has a frequency response that continues several octaves below audibility. The subs will knock everything off of your amps, so put the the bottles on the floor. No kidding.
Rock that's thick as wool
The "WOOL" knob adjusts the amount of fur around the note. The "EQ" knob tilts the spectral response, turning to the left adds lows and softens the highs. Turning to the right adds highs, then mids, and finally reduces lows. the "OUT" knob Is designed for smooth repeatable level settings.
The Mammoth won't become extinct
The circuit (designed by Chuck Zwicky) draws less than one-half of a milliampere (0.0004 amps, typical). That is less than one-hundredth the current consumption of most 'commercial' pedals, giving this pedal about as high a battery life as you can find anywhere. In fact, if you use an alkaline battery and always unplug the input cord between sessions, you may never have to change it at all!
