    im really interested in hearing what they sound like on bass. i hear that they are bad ass and the clips on the site were good, but all on guitar. so if anyoen has any info that'd be great.

    Man, at first I thought that you just had really bad grammar, but I gave you the benefit of the doubt and looked for information on “way huge pedals” and sure enough, that’s actually there name. Too funny.

    And (obviously) no, I don’t know what they sound like on bass. Sorry.

    My EB volume pedal is definitely way huge! Seriously though, I've not heard them but I've heard good things about them. Don't they make one called "The Swollen Pickle"?

    I used to have the WH compressor. It was a pretty simple pedal. ON/OFF and two knobs. I can't remember the funny name....it sounded pretty good. But I thought it sounded better on guitar.
     
  6. Well, I onced owned a 'Pickle. TERRIFIC little box, like a Big Muff on steroids. REally something...on guitar. Not tuned very well for bass at all so quit yer lustin'. It's massive low mid bump was just what 6-stringers needed for maximum >whummp< Fun stuff but for bass? Nope. THat fellah helped design the Line6 FM4 incidentally. Those boxes go for _ridiculous_ amounts used. I bought mine for around $175 usd or something...sold it for over $400(?!) What a shiister eh? Wel....HE offered!

    I had a Way Huge Green Rhino overdrive for awhile, I loved it with my guitars and bass, but for some reason I ditched it as "not heavy enough" at the time. Wish I had never sold it, but i have a route 66 whose drive makes me happy now for guitar, i haven't plugged my bass into that one just yet but fully plan on it when i get my bass amp.
     
  8. I believe it was the "Red Lahma" OD that was recommened for bass. Some of the boxes were "contractual obligation" like the compressor; he wasn't that enthused about those ones. Good stuff tho'....
