Tortuga Effects Basswolf Classic


When Tortuga originally designed the Werewolf, the plan was to create the most versatile overdrive and distortion for guitar all in one box. What they didn’t plan on was that it would also sound amazing on bass. Well, over the years they found that they sell just as many Werewolf pedals to bass players as they do guitar players.

Although all of those bass players love their Werewolf, it got Tortuga thinking that they should take some time to tweak the circuit specifically for bass frequencies. What they came up with was the Basswolf Classic - a Werewolf that not only shines on bass but also really kills it on drop tuned guitar.

Tortuga Classic Series Pedals feature simplified graphics along with straightforward control names and of course are hand-built in-house.
