OVERVIEW

Crunchy distortion goodness with outstanding tweakability.

The Fat Sandwich Distortion represents an advanced era in guitar pedal design for Way Huge. In addition to carrying on the Way Huge tradition of amazing tone and rugged construction, the Fat Sandwich Distortion Pedal delivers heaps of crunchy distortion goodness via its innovative multi-stage clipping circuit. Meticulously designed from the ground up, the passive tone stack was tuned to bring out the "sweet spot" with any guitar and amp combination. The Volume control produces tons of output, making it ideal for driving the headroom out of the most powerful tube amps. Additionally, the Fat Sandwich guitar effect pedal has two internal mini controls: the Curve knob lets the user fine-tune the corner frequency of the overdrive filtering and the Sustain control adjusts the gain of the final distortion stage. The Fat Sandwich is versatile and over the top ” the consummate distortion pedal for any genre of playing style.

Each pedal has been rigorously tested to ensure quality, durability, and reliability and will deliver many years of exceptional performance. All Way Huge guitar pedals feature: heavy-duty footswitch with quiet relay-based true bypass, blue LED indicator, 2.1mm power jack with AC protection, easy access (non-detachable) battery door, super-duty .09 aluminum anodized chassis, high grade components, great tone and cool name.

Launched in 1992 by Jeorge Tripps, Way Huge Electronics began as a result of Tripps' search for great tone, and his desire to perform with reliable, rugged and pedal board-friendly effects that had the magic of his coveted vintage pedals. The very first pedal ” simply labeled "Fuzz Box" ” was quickly followed by such staples to the product line as the Red Llama Overdrive, Foot Pig Fuzz and Green Rhino Overdrive II, which quickly found their way into the hands and onto the pedal boards of the world's guitar elite. Ensuing years would see the introduction of pedals such as the Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz, Aqua-Puss Analog Delay, and the Saffron Squeeze. Over the span of a few years, Tripps helped revolutionize what would later be known as the 'boutique' effects market. In late December 1999, the company closed its doors as Tripps pursued other opportunities, sending demand for Way Huge products soaring, and driving online auctions well into the hundreds ” sometimes thousands ” for used Way Huge pedals. Now teaming up up with Dunlop, Way Huge pedals will once again be available to the masses, so all can enjoy their finely tuned electronics, high-grade circuitry and road ready construction, built under the watchful eye of Mr. Huge himself.

    Comments about Way Huge Electronics WHE301 Fat Sandwich Harmonic Saturator Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I don't think I've ever had such a long time to reallyhit me how much I love this pedal. or more accurately, it took me a while to really appreciate it. I had been on a way huge binge a few years ago... I was buying all Way huge and I was always very impressed with their boxes . more impressed with the newest one I got than the last! Specially swollen pickle, than the delays. I was wow, this is the best pedals in the world!!! I was very naive back then, they are still some of my favorites, but you know..
    when I got the Fat sandwich I was a little bit undergwlemed , I will not say dissapointed because it was still a great pedal, it sounded absolutely great... but it just felt like ok i've seen it, got it, whatever... and regardless of that, it still found a spot in my pedalboard along others like the OCD and Tubescreamer... I'm not much of a extremely heavy saturated metal distortion now a days, but I do occasionally need the heaviest distortion possible, I have the Swollen Pickle and the Muffroom Cloud for that... as the Fat sandwich doesn't really get ibto super heavy distortion area, or at least I thought... I had been playing it with my strat single couls for a while... it is an awesome type of distortion , hard to describe... almost like a FET driver type where even at low gain you hear this really smooth distorted sound... more than just break up , a smooth distortion...
    Then I plugged in my Les Paul, definitely a different monster, I still would not recommened for death metal, plus you might not want to play with a yellow box called fat sandwich... but it gets a lot heavier!!! The eq is interesting..not very glassy high... more in the mids section and it almost encourages you to set jt with a lot of bottom end and not too much sparkle...
    I definitely love this pedal more than I did 6 years ago and I could not play without it.... it's the most original distortion i've heard from any of my local bands... you might not love it at first, but YOU WILL!

      Comments about Way Huge Electronics WHE301 Fat Sandwich Harmonic Saturator Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Dirt stompboxes seem to be similar at times: slightly different look, same controls. But actually they are built differently, use different parts and they sound different.
      Way Huge dirt pedals have a long history. The operation was even stopped in 1999. It is great Dunlop helped to revive the brand and extended those well-established products to the present days. Why we need one more brand today? It's because Way Huge maintains high building quality. It's also because these pedals are extremely versatile. Fat Sandwich has all these common features. 3 external EQ controls are only visible part of an iceberg. It has 3 EQ/gain trim pots inside the pedal. It helps to adjust this distortion pedal virtually to any rig and any tastes. You really get a lot for reasonable money. I'm glad I pulled the trigger and I highly recommend it.

      Comments about Way Huge Electronics WHE301 Fat Sandwich Harmonic Saturator Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      A different Distortion type pedal.
      Its not a Mild Green Rhino blues OD sound here.
      Use Guitar volume knob for milder breakup and go inside and turn the knobs & tune too taste.

      I tamed it going inside and it is good crunchy ride starting out !
      The adjustments are paramount to the guitar pickup power range .
      So start low distortion as you can then turn the distortion and guitar up and hang on for a ripping heavy rock assault , a power tube crunch sound is very good on this pedal.
      A true brown sound is there on low end compression I noticed like 6v6 tubes.
      Smooth Fat and crunchy at the same time is unique too many others pedals I have !

      I run it with a Bad Cat cougar 5 and a also a Rebel 30 amp using HB sized P-90 pickups .

      Solid State amps could use this Brown sound I suspect.

      The guitar volume knob adjust the mayhem you get from blues to classic rock on too heavy rock and finally mosh pit head banger hog Squalor heaven if you like !

        This pedal can give you many different tones depending on your guitars volume control and picking style.I set my guitars volume to about 6.5 then set up a crunch tone on the Fat Sandwich.When I turn up my volume all the way my tone gets way huge(the name says it all).This pedal may take a lot of tweeking so be patient.If used properly it can produce a very brown sound.Great buy

        Comments about Way Huge Electronics WHE301 Fat Sandwich Harmonic Saturator Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This is a nice distortion pedal. I had loaded a DS-1 and TS-9 on my board because I could't really decide if "distortion" or "overdrive" was what worked for me. My goal is one pedal. This pedal is rally in between. It has aspects of distortion and overdrive. But unlike the classics in either category you can set the breakup and then adjust tone without really changing the overall character of the main effect. And it has a elegant articulation that just seems to put it in a category of its own. Pedal has a huge range in term soy familiar places. so it took me about 2 hours to find my sweet spot.

          Comments about Way Huge Electronics WHE301 Fat Sandwich Harmonic Saturator Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

          The build quality of this pedal is amazing. It is literally built like a tank. I have a number of boutique pedals and this one is definitely the best quality in terms of durability.

          The sound is fantastic, I've been able to dial in some awesome high gain 80's sounds (which is why I bought it) on the clean channel of my tube amp. If you are looking for a versatile high gain pedal, this one fits the bill. The extra tone knobs give you a huge range of sounds, none of which sound muddy.

          If you want low gain/overdrive sound, this is not the pedal for you. On its lowest gain setting with single coil pickups, you still get a fully distorted signal. I love it, but a clean boost / low overdrive pedal this is not.

              Another really nice pedal from Way Huge. Excellent construction quality and sound. Really fat "brown sound". The only downside is it's not too versatile. At the lowest settings, it's still pretty distorted, and at it's highest settings it might not be enough for metal guys. Perfect for classic rock, heavier electric blues, and garage rock. Sounds great in front of a clean tube amp.
