    The Brown Dog Bass Fuzz Pedal enables you to produce rampaging waves of meat with your bass guitar while still keeping your basslines tight and letting the character of your instrument's tone shine through. With two fuzz modes (hard and soft), a mixing stage and a unique gating circuit the Brown Dog is a gated stompbox that gives you a wide range of fuzzy and synthy bass tones.

    Based on the highly acclaimed FZ002 gated bass fuzz, Chunk Systems Brown Dog adds soft mode and features easier to use mixer controls. With true bypass and only the best quality analogue electronics, the Brown Dog is perfect for all you clean sound freaks. Use the special envelope connector in conjunction with the Agent 00Funk Mark II for synth bass that will really freak you out!

    In addition to the high-quality metal bypass switch, the Brown Dog has four knobs and a switch:
    The dirty level controls the volume of the signal coming from the Brown Dog's fuzz circuit in the output mix. To make the fuzz louder, turn it up. To make the fuzz quieter, turn it down.

    The clean level controls the volume of the original input signal in the output mix. The Brown Dog mixes the dirty signal coming from its fuzz circuit with the original input signal so you can determine exactly how much fuzz you want and keep the tone of your instrument.

    The gate control governs how loud the input signal must be for a fuzz tone to be produced. Especially in hard mode, you can use this gating effect to prevent hum from your pickups and the noise of your fingers on the strings from being amplified by the fuzz circuit. You can also ensure that your notes start and end cleanly, so your bass line remains clear even though you have massive amounts of fuzz applied.

    The drive control alters the character of the fuzz produced by controlling how hard the fuzz circuit is driven. Driving the fuzz harder squares off your sound more and makes it sound harsher. In hard mode with maximum drive, you can get synth-like square wave tones. In soft mode, the drive control will alter the volume of the fuzz signal and you may find you need to compensate with the dirty level control.

    Use the mode switch to switch between soft and hard fuzz, which have different characters. The hard fuzz produces very square-edged acidic tones. Use it for really hardcore metal sounds or turn up the gate for some great synth tones. The soft mode produces a classic warm bass fuzz.

    Good buy

    By Ron

    from Maryland

    Comments about Chunk Systems Brown Dog Gated Bass Fuzz Pedal:

    Its been a good buy but the one thing I would like to mention is that this thing might have a gain problem. Whenever I am plugging it in, it takes a lot of feedback noise. I can't figure out why.

    Comments about Chunk Systems Brown Dog Gated Bass Fuzz Pedal:

    have had pedal for 3 years. sounds great. although it has a lot of hiss,which you dont her when playing. I think the other reviewers has duds.when distortion is turned up to 8 on soft mode and level is equal or greater than clean it screames for me ,keep the gate up if you want a tighter sound. it is a little expensive and although i havn't had a problem it seems a little delicate(no throwing it into your gigbag)

    mixed results but overall good pedal

    By LotsoZons

    from san francisco, ca

    Comments about Chunk Systems Brown Dog Gated Bass Fuzz Pedal:

    My initial demo of this wowed me more than my own practical usage, but it's still a good unit(I demo'd using a USA Lakland Joe Osborne through a Trace Elliot Mark King preamp, into an Eden something-or-other combo): the distortion effect is very subtle, and has its own mix level compared to the dry - which also has its own mix level; I really liked the resulting mix of natural bass tone with just enough grit for thickness and atmosphere. Alas, it's a little too subtle for my own live usage, and since the main element of my post-bass signal chain is the SansAmp BassDriver DI (with low gain, no grit) the scooped eq removed the nice, subtle warmth of the unit. I still like the sound, but it didn't compete too well with dual guitars through 5150's. (I went back to my Boss ODB3, for a fiercer grind.) I recommend the pedal if you want control over your tone, and don't have to fight for tonal space.

    All bark, no fuzz!

    By doc o' rock

    from Chicago

    Comments about Chunk Systems Brown Dog Gated Bass Fuzz Pedal:

    Playing bass over 30 years, have owned many effects pedals; don't waste your time with this one. Mine suffered from shoddy construction resulting in intermittent function, and when it did work, it sounded awful. And the cost!
