The ‘Fuzzy Pickle’ is based around the classic 60’s fuzz of the Sam Ash & the Astrotone with a few GCP tweaks added for good measure. The pedal does have its own unique idiosyncratic ways but these add to the pedals appeal. Take your time to find that sweet spot & you’ll be in tonal heaven.
The unity volume is quiet high with it starting somewhere around 12 O’clock. The Gain pot benefits from being past noon but once there it interacts lovely with the volume to create some lovely tones. The Tone pot is exactly the opposite, preferring not to go past 4pm, around noon is ideal.
