In this blog post, Jim Dunlop has introduced the Way Huge Angry Troll pedal. Now, if there’s one thing I know well, it’s being an angry troll. If there’s anything else I know, it’s that Way Huge pedals kick ass. I’ve been really digging the Way Huge Swollen Pickle Mk II fuzz pedal recently (look for a review next week). In addition to that and the new Angry Troll, the Way Huge range is currently rounded out by the Fat Sandwich and the Pork Loin, the latter of which blew my mind out when I checked out the sound clips recently.
Anyway, here’s what they have to say about it on the Dunlop blog:
The mighty Angry Troll from Way Huge Electronics serves up gorgeous portions of volume and gain to pummel the input of your amp with up to +50dB of gain. It adds bite and punch while transforming your mild mannered tone into a beastly sonic onslaught!
The Angry Troll’s two controls interact like a vintage mic pre amp. The Anger knob—a rotary switch with six Fists of Fury positions—adjusts the amount of gain created by the Troll’s op-amp, while the Volume knob regulates the overall output level. High grade components are used for a precisely tuned circuit that works like an extension of your amp. Another tone monster from the mind of Mr. Huge!
· Delivers up to +50dB of boost
· Precisely tuned to work like an extension of your amp
· Adds a little dirt at higher settings
· Heavy duty foot switch with quiet relay based true bypass
· High grade components for low noise operation
Speaking of Dunlop stuff, I’ve been checking out the new Ultex Sharp picks. More on that on Monday!
