Stand back! This pedal has more fuzz than a moldy peach. The Swollen Pickle is a 70's style fuzz that goes from mild crunch to Armageddon! "For truly vulgar, lard-assed fuzz, it's tough to top the Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz. Buzz boxes just don't get much more corpulent than this. It's tone control elicits an insane range of heavily band-pass-filtered tones, all distinguished by remarkable girth and sizzle" Guitar Player Magazine (Sept. '96). Units have loudness, sustain and filter controls.
