I have had a few different fuzz pedals in the past, currently have a Swollen Pickle. It sounds cool, but it seems really extreme.. I can't find a mellow fuzz very well. Unless anyone is able to give advice on how to get it more mellow, I'm looking at getting a different fuzz. Three contenders are: FuzzHugger Bass Bloom with blend knob. The blend knob is really attractive, because it seems easy to set a mild fuzz or a in yo' face fuzz EC Angry Ape: Seems similar to the wooly mammoth, which I like a lot, but didn't go well with my active bass. Is that the case with this one, too? Team Awesome! Fuzz Machine: Heard a lot of great things about this one, but I don't know much about it. I'd like for a mellow fuzz to be able to get more extreme if I wanted, but I also want it to play really well with an envelope filter (Super Fatman) and/or octave (MXR M288 deluxe).
