The legendary Way Huge Green Rhino has returned!

The Way Huge Electronics Green Rhino Mk II Overdrive pedal has all the gorgeous, classic overdrive that you crave, but it's evolved to include cool new features that make it even more rhinoceriffic. In addition to the Volume, Tone, and Drive controls, you get a 100Hz EQ knob to cut or boost your low end by 12dB. Your low notes can either shake the ground like a stampede across the savannah or cut through the mix like a charging rhino's horn.

This pachyderm of a pedal also sports a Curve control to fine-tune the corner frequencies of your tone. All this amazing tone shaping makes other overdrives seem boring and one-dimensional by comparison.

In front of a clean amp, with the Volume and Drive set at noon, you can go from pristine purity to a punchy, dynamic rhythm tone. Set the Drive low and crank the Volume and add tons of boost to wallop the input of any amp. Turn up the Drive control with the Rhino in front of a distorted channel and hear more gain and sustain than you ever thought your amp was capable of. And no matter how you use it, the Green Rhino Mk II will deliver clean operation, quiet relay-based true-bypass switching, and the rock-solid construction that Way Huge is famous for.

Features
  • 100Hz EQ knob to cut or boost your low end by ±12dB
  • Curve control to fine-tune the corner frequencies of your tone
  • Crystal-clear leads and punchy, dynamic rhythm tones

      a well built, great overdrive pedal that you can get many different sounds out. a great pedal for running infront of a distorted amp for extra harmonic richness and chunk.
      This is a great tubescreamer like overdrive with some fetures that are added where many people think that they are lacking. The 100hz boost/cut additon to this pedal is great for thickening up the sound when running this pedal as a boost infront of an amps dirty channel. this pedal has a thicker sound in my opinion than my keleey moded tube screamer and blues driver.(when I run od pedals as boosts I have the gain set at 9 or 10 oclock and the volume about noon and the tone at around 2) As an overdrive pedal it sounds outstanding as well, fat tones with humbuckers and a nice smooth tone with single coils. sounds great running into modulation pedals. this pedal has a good agressive bass od sound as well.
      this was my first way huge pedal, the build quility is ecellent, I will deffenatly be looking at other way huge products in the future
      slightly more expensive than some of the standard tubescreamers and if this pedal was priced a little lower i would mark it at 10 of 10 for value

      So, I don't want to say this is a bad pedal. It's not. It just wasn't what I was looking for. I've used many different OD pedals, and i have to say, this one was much different in my setup than the others I've used. I'd say it's a great booster OD, but wasn't so good at adding the gain/distortion to my tone. I have a single channel head, and typically I'll keep the pre at about 5 (using mostly post for tone), and use the OD for the rest of the screaming, therefore, the output on the OD is most important. With the Green Rhino, I set the output, then slowly turn gain up until desired sound is reached. As I turn up the gain, it reaches a point where it sounds like it's clipping, and very "farty". Almost sounded like a Class A amp dimed. I tried many different parameters. Lowering the output, messing with the gain, changing the pre on my head, etc. Nothing usable was ever reached for me. I know my head is very finicky with pedals in general, but for the price, this pedal had to be perfect for me to keep it. It's also very large, which is lame on a pedalboard. My main issue in the first place was that OD pedals robbed low end. After trying this pedal, I ended up getting the MXR M77, and it was perfect. That said, if you are looking for a more vintage, lower gain sound, the Green Rhino might work well. If you're looking for a more modern, crunchy/distorted sound, I'd look elsewhere. I think it's also notable to mention that the other reviews stating that the Rhino is very Tube Screamer mid hump sounding are somewhat accurate. This pedal definitely adds it's own color to the tone. However, at that point I'd just spend less for a Tube Screamer. Good luck finding your ideal tone!

            Comments about Way Huge Electronics Green Rhino MkII Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I've owned and used many varieties of tubescreamers over the years including a TS-808 reissue, TS-9 reissues, keeley modded TS-9, etc. The green rhino is the overall best hands down. I should point out that I primarily use tubescreamers for playing leads and use an OCD and various clean boosts for rhythm work. The rhino has more gain and headroom on tap than any other ts variants that I've used. The big win to me is the bass and mid controls that the rhino offers. I used to have to use a clean boost or EQ in conjunction with my other ts-style pedals to get a similar tone. The rhino also seems to offer more sustain. I use humbuckers and a plexi and the rhino loves both of them. Construction is top notch; the footswitches on the way huge stuff seem indestructible unlike the ibanez/maxon stuff. If you're thinking of buying a TS circuit be sure to look at this one.

            Comments about Way Huge Electronics Green Rhino MkII Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Read a lot on this pedal, and watched a number of video clips. Seemed like a great little box, and the tone sounded pretty slick on the recordings. Played through it today at GC. I'd like to hope it was the Egnator amp through which it was running (I wasn't able to access the controls to dial in my own clean sound), but the pedal tones really left me unimpressed. At low gain settings, it did add a lot of definition and punch to the open voiced chords, but I couldn't seem to get that "sweet spot" sound I was looking for when it was turned up a bit for lead lines. Like I said, I hope it was just the amp settings, because it sounded a lot better, and gave me high hopes, on the videos watched.

            I will say that I felt the midrange knob did have a decent effect on the tone, unlike what has been stated by many in the reviews. The boost had a pretty dramatic effect in comparison, however, so if you're hoping for the same level of change from the midrange sweep you'll probably think the same as earlier reviewers. When the boost is dialed way back, the tone changes to what could be described as dumping the bass in the amp EQ, and playing on your phased out coil position.

            I'm going to try it again, and hopefully find a blackstar valve amp in store (like the 40W/60W I use myself), so I can do a definitive test. Probably would be more responsive on single coils, although my dimarzio/IBZ humbuckers create some pretty warm and organic sounds in their own right.

            Would like to recommend it with high marks in the future. Right now it's sitting at mediocre (with added points for the boost and midrange scoop). From what I played today, I'd probably use it to boost my clean rhythm playing, and stick to the preamp gain for my overdrive. Adding this at low settings to an already breaking up class A clean channel might change my mind though.

            Comments about Way Huge Electronics Green Rhino MkII Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Honestly, I thought from reading reviews and watching clips that this would really be the better OD pedal. I have had a Tube Screamer, and I felt like I was missing something. Was looking for another OD.

            Tried it in Guitar Center finally with a Deluxe Reverb and a Jackson Dinky. (not my favorite equipment) I was surprised by how fat and bloated the Green Rhino sounded. It colored the tone in a way I was not happy with.

            Really, it could be better than I think it is. With different amp/axe, it might really be the trick. I would definitely try this one first before buying. It made my old Tube Screamer seem like a dream to me.

                  Comments about Way Huge Electronics Green Rhino MkII Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  Sound - Think tube screamer with more low end available. Kind of a "bland" overdrive. No real haramonics, can be a thick sound....but a bland thick sound. If you run a "trebly sounding amp" or single coils, you may like it. If you are running humbuckers through a full, darker amp....you probably wont' like it.

                  If you are a fan of the TS, you will probably like this pedal. It was just OK... and that is being generous. It could be the combo of my LP-plexi. To my ears, this pedal is nowhere near the tone I was searching for. There are way better OD's out there for less money. Also, for a nit pick, the knobs are very easy to move. That sounds great on paper but I was always bumping them with my feet during gigs...thus having to constantly bend down during songs to adjust my sound. Very annoying. That might not sound like a big deal but let it happen to you once and see what you say then:)

                  Bottom line, I would stay away. I like my OD to be more "organic" and "tube like". This pedal just didn't cut it.

                  If your amp sounds allmost decent,this pedal makes it good!
                  If good tone is your goal this helps you along very well indeed !
                  I leave it on , running a Fulltone GT-500 distortion into it , fabulous if i cut the gain back to a cleaner setting on the Rhino.
                  If amps had preamps like this, a OD pedal wouldnt be in demand.
                  But high intencity tube amps can get harsh when loud , this pedal really helps fix that !
                  Yet this pedal is a big dynamic sounding preamp!
                  It does a fabulous rythem rich and articulate and breaks up well when strummed firmly!
                  I luv the tone on it and have no replacement for this pedal,ive a bunch of pedals and OD like it,but none match the pure string tone this reproduces!
                  I run this pedal last on my preamp board,it helps the tone as it goes direct into the amp and restores the dynamics we all like IMHO !
                  Yes i think it retains your harmonics like no others !

                  Does exactly what any tubescreamer can do, just better. Worth the money and it will stay with me forever.
                  Perfect for a pedal. It has the traditional controls of a tubescreamer, but adds a bass boost (which works great) and a curve control (it isn't a dramatic effect, but it really helps you key in on the sweetspot).
                  Everything is sturdy and the casing is a nice lightweight. The green aluminum also looks great.
                  It really isn't too expensive, especially after other overdrive pedal prices are considered. It will last a lifetime, delivers great tone and is good enough to be the only overdrive pedal I really ever need. This pedal is a bargain.

                  Good quality - you get two green pins to were on your cout too, which my kid loved!

                  Comments about Way Huge Electronics Green Rhino MkII Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  This is a great pedal but just not what I was looking for. I think that most will find this to a be a great TS style overdrive. I would reccomend it to someone who barely uses any gain and would like to boost the lows. Again, this is not a dirt box, it runs very clean with minimum gain.
                  TS style overdrive with minimal gain. Features a lower frequency boost which is great but a mid control that does nothing...barely audible. True bypass and built tough. I think it's a quality pedal but I feel my Tubescreamer and MI Audio Blues Pro sound better. The Green Rhino sounds a bit bland and too clean for my tastes. I was looking for a replacement for my Tubescreamer TS9DX but with true bypass. I ended up selling both the TS9dx and the Green Rhino and bought the MI Audio Blues Pro of which I like a lot. Maybe it is the JRC chip in the Blues Pro that makes it more like my TS9DX. Anyway, I feel the Blues Pro is a better fit for me.
                  Built well and is a great sounding pedal but again I feel the overdrive is a bit too clean for me lacking that smooth organic feel that makes a tubecreamer great. I will say the boost dial make a great feature for the Rhino.
