Tortuga Effects Basswolf - Dual Bass Over-Stortion


When I originally designed the Werewolf™ the plan was to create the most versatile overdrive and distortion for guitar all in one box. What I didn’t plan on was that it would also sound amazing on bass. Well, over the years I’ve found that I sell just as many Werewolf™ pedals to bass players as I do guitar players. Although all of those bass players love their Werewolf™, it got me thinking that I should take some time to tweak the circuit specifically for bass frequencies. What I came up with was the Basswolf™ - a Werewolf™ that not only shines on bass but also really kills it on drop tuned guitar.


  • Three completely different gain circuits voiced for bass guitar
  • Classic LM308 op amp
  • Foot-switchable dual ‘Maim’ and ‘Kill’ gain settings
  • Internal trim pot for ‘Kill’ voicing

  • 100% true bypass
  • Hand-brushed aluminum enclosure
  • Hand-applied decals under a durable, glossy acrylic clear coat
  • Hand-made in the USA
  • Enclosure Size: 3 5/8” x 4 5/8” x 1 1/4”
