    Hey guys,

    So, I'm planning to get a Swollen Pickle because I've heard it's a really versatile fuzz and I liked what I heard in test videos and the such, but I'm worried it's extreme bassiness might be a problem.

    I know it can't be warranted till I testdrive it on my own and in a band setting, but has anybody tried modding their own to reduce low freq response? did it work? is it possible?

    Any input would be great. Cheers!

    Using the filter knob and messing with the scoop and crunch, you can shift it away from very bass-heavy. For a smoother fuzz I'd definitely recommend it. I have an IE Oxide now and, as fantastic as it is, I miss some of the smoother fuzzies you can get. When I get a second pedalboard for more effects, you can bet I'm getting a Pickle again

    +1 on the filter knob. Also, running a blender will get you places you never thought a fuzz could go. :D
