Way Huge WHE401 Swollen Pickle MkII Jumbo Fuzz




Jim Dunlop

The most sought after and corpulent Way Huge pedal is back with new features and it still has "more fuzz than a moldy peach!"

With added controls The Swollen Pickle MkII surrenders super high-gain fuzz with copious amounts of smooth low-end to all who dare plug into it. With a twist of the SUSTAIN control, you're taken from mild crunch to Armageddon! The FILTER control retains its trademark insane range of heavily band-pass-filtered tones distinguished by remarkable girth and sizzle, and the LOUDNESS puts out enough volume to clobber any amp!

Newly added features include a tone stack SCOOP control that elicits classic Swollen Pickle mid-scoop or flat mid-frequency sweep, and a CRUNCH knob to adjust the compression intensity of the fuzz. Finally, under the hood, the Swollen Pickle MkII has 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.

Internal controls: these controls are for fine-tuning to your guitar and amp rig:

  • Voice - sets the intensity of the external SCOOP control
  • Clip - varies between smooth or opened fuzz sustain


  • LOUDNESS - generates enough volume to clobber any amp
  • FILTER - adjusts the range of heavily band-pass-filtered tones
  • SUSTAIN - releases masses of heavy violent fuzz
  • SCOOP - sweeps between mid-scoop to flat mid-frequency
  • CRUNCH - alters the compression intensity of the sustain
  • FOOTSWITCH - toggles the effect on/bypass (blue LED indicates effect is ON)
