Wren and Cuff Pickle Pie B


For a long time now Wren and Cuff had been planning on making a fuzz pedal designed for the many distortion loving bass players out there. It all started when they began getting a large percentage of Pickle Pie sales from bass players who knew The Pickle’s reputation as a “guitar” pedal that could handle the low frequencies of the bass, and give a nice spongy fuzz much better than most of the Muff family.

Even though most were happy with this pedal, there were some tweaks that could create a pedal with a much different voice, but one that still uses the same basic skeleton as the PP, and strives to resolve many of the common quandaries bassists come across in their search for a fuzz that really works for their instrument and their playing situation. 

There is no “drop out” when you kick on the fuzz when playing live. Helps give the feel of running two amps, one wet, one dry for those of us who can’t afford two SVT’s, and/or can’t lug two bass amps down to the local club.

Along with great sounding fuzz, this specific clipping combo helps the fuzz to mesh with the clean signal in a natural way, instead of just sitting on top of the dry signal like some fuzzes with clean blends can do.

A widened range of usable tones from the “shape” knob. The pedal overall has a much less pronounced mid-scoop which helps it to retain presence in a live playing situation.

You can Roll the fuzz back, and things still sound crisp, also tighter lows at high fuzz settings. The PP “B” really can go from a dirty, gritty, slightly over-driven clean-blended bass sound, to fully saturated, watch out for feedback, drop-C meltdown, and everything in-between.

Several core changes were made to the circuit to even better accomodate the bass guitar.

  • A FET buffered active clean-boost.
  • Totally changed FET-hybrid clip sections.
  • Altered tone-stack range geared specifically for bass.
  • Altered saturation (fuzz) knob to make it highly usable at lower gain settings.
  • Various cap and resistor changes.
  • Genuine Davies “Daka-ware” knobs.
