Way Huge Fuzz, Less-huge Size

The Swollen Pickle MkIIS has all the fuzz and features of the MkII model in a pedalboard-friendlier size. This Swollen Pickle covers a wide range of tonal territory from classic-rock crunch to laser-y shoegaze to total sputtery destruction. A Filter knob lets you reign in the treble content from bright and fizzy to dark and woolly, and a Sustain control lets you adjust for different pickup outputs and playing styles. Onboard Scoop and Crunch controls let you adjust the midrange and compression characteristics, while under the hood, internal Clip and Voice pots let you dial in the fuzz characteristics and midrange contour.

Way Huge Swollen Pickle Fuzz Pedal MkIIS at a Glance:
  • Mild to massive fuzz tones
  • All the tweaking of the full MkII in a smaller size
  • Internal controls for advanced users
  • About Way Huge pedals
Mild to massive fuzz tones

One thing Sweetwater guitarists particularly appreciate about the Swollen Pickle line is its wide range of usable tones. Modern to vintage, aggressive to smooth, full frequency to midrange heavy, the Swollen Pickle packs a lot of sonic diversity into a single pedal.

All the tweaking of the full MkII in a smaller size

Fans who loved the additional features of the Swollen Pickle v2 will love the smaller MkII2. Features include a tone stack Scoop control that adjusts from classic Swollen Pickle mid-scoop to a flat mid-frequency sweep, and a Crunch knob that lets you adjust the compression intensity of the fuzz.

Internal controls for advanced users

Open up the Swollen Pickle and look inside and you'll find two 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. These controls make the Swollen Pickle a tremendously tweakable pedal that advanced users are sure to love.

About Way Huge pedals

Way Huge founder Jeorge Tripps fired up his first Way Huge creation, the Fuzz Box, back in 1992, and soon created a stable of amazing-sounding stompboxes with equally interesting names. Though Way Huge closed up shop in 1999, demand for these pedals continued to soar; as you'd expect, online auctions brought astronomical prices for Way Huge products. Now, Way Huge teams up with Dunlop to make their premium-quality stompboxes available to you at much more down-to-earth prices. And they're better than ever!

Ace of Spades

I ordered this pedal on a whim and it turned out to be a fantastic impulse buy. The Pickle can cover Muff to Fuzz Face and all points in between, as well as coaxing it's own unique sonic signatures. As someone who primarily plays detuned, doomy blues I can confirm this pedal has an adequate gain range. I'm a minamalist, so I only have room for one fuzz and this one more than fits the bill.

Fat Fatty McFat Fat!

Spent many years and most of my spare change on fuzz pedals in the search for perfection. Believe none of what you read: Fuzz is quite the acquired and personal taste. But for the distinguished ear and perhaps lighter wallet, the Pickle is the boss! It allows me to dial-in scooped Bush fuzz to full-out J Mascis armageddon. From the Stones to Smashing Pumpkins, I have ended my search with George Tripp's proud growler. Pros - The ability to tweak your tone is unsurpassed with the Swollen Pickle. Most boutique fuzz pedals are one trick ponies. No range! The Pickle knobs for input, output, scoop, tone, and crunch are all vastly dynamic dials. In addition, internal dials - voice and clip - allow you to modify tone and breakup even more. Lots and lots of headroom. Quality quality quality tone. No joke! Cons - If you live for zero noise pedals, this may be a tough sell. The pedal shocked me at first as I bench tested the line signal. It is the loudest pedal in my chain before I strike a single note. I will happily trade the additional hiss for the tone. Don't get me wrong, playing style at any level of professionalism required control over this element, but nothing great ever came from something timid. If you crave REAL TONE, and especially if you're not intimidated by P90s, then you MUST have this pedal in your arsenal. Rich Robinson and Jon Auer would be proud, but Neil Young's minis may also be a little jealous...

The best Fuzz pedal or box eve,man!

I owned 1 0f these and I was mostly playing metal at this time. And it gave it a huge sound. Than I started to play punk again and it was awesome. It is best with stuff like Jimi Hendrix, and that sort. It is even better than any Fuzz Box I ever owned. It gave me the power to reinvent sounds that are mind blowing with the Wah Wah added! Forget about buying some pedal fuzz box from yesteryear and this is where it,s at cat!

The One

Great fuzz. Incredibly malleable tone and built very well. The pots are sensitive and provide a broad range of tones with each turn. My only gripe is that the two internal pots (for filter and scoop) aren't on the outside. Well worth the price tag. Replaced a few more expensive pedals on my board.

All Swelled-Up

This pedal lives up top its name - Way Huge , Swollen tones and fuzz! There is a lot of opportunity for creating your own distinctive sound. A great addition to anybody's board.

Sweetwater Advice

Andrew Davis

The Way Huge Swollen Pickle is one of the most versatile fuzz pedals I own. With just a bit of tweaking, I can go from I can go from subtle vintage style to massive, heavy fuzz. It's a staple of my pedalboard, and it will remain there for years to come.
