The Way Huge Electronics Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz is a guitar effects pedal that can be used in any situation you'd like. It's an analog pedal consisting of standard 1/4" connections for input and output and requiring a nine volt power supply. I'm not sure if there's a battery compartment or not, as when I have used it it has been with a power supply. It isn't rack mountable as it's a stomp box.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Way Huge Electronics Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz isn't too difficult to follow, but it will take a bit of messing around with the pedal to fully understand what all of the parameters do, as it isn't exactly clearly from the labels. The main parameters that it has are for 'loudness,' sustain, and filter, and then it has smaller knobs for further changing the tone that are labeled 'crunch' and 'scoop.' It's fairly clear what they do upon messing with them, but it did take me a few minutes to get acquainted with everything going on. I didn't need the assistance of a manual however.

SOUND QUALITY

For what the pedal can do, the Way Huge Electronics Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz definitely has an awesome sound to it. It isn't a very versatile pedal in terms of the range of different sounds available, but within the box of being a fuzz box, this is a really cool pedal. I guess what I'm getting at is that it isn't a suitable overdrive or distortion type of effect as can be found on other fuzz boxes. I recently used this for a series of recording sessions, and while we didn't end up using this pedal for too many tracks, it did make it on a few smaller capacities when we needed some really thick fuzz. Within the world of fuzz, this is a very flexible pedal...

OVERALL OPINION

The Way Huge Electronics Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz is one of the best overall fuzz pedals that I've used. While I'm generally not a huge fan of straight fuzz, this box offers up a flexibility that isn't found on most fuzz boxes. You can't really use this pedal for anything other than getting a really thick fuzz sound, but tone shaping is totally possible. If you are a player who uses a lot of traditional fuzz, the Swollen Pickle is absolutely a pedal you need to know about.
