Another new entry by Dunlop: the Swollen Pickle Jumbo Fuzz Dirty Donny Edition:
The Swollen Pickle™ Jumbo Fuzz Dirty Donny Edition serves up the same burly high-gain fuzz as the full-sized Swollen Pickle but in a more petite package, featuring a simplified control set up and a corpulently cool new paint job.
The Dirty Donny Edition retains six of the Mark II’s seven controls, and they’re all on the front of the pedal, so you can tune the portly saturation to your mad heart’s content without any fuss. The Sustain control takes you from mild crunch to burning Armageddon, while the Filter control lets you finely sculpt your fuzz tone, and the Loudness control has enough volume on tap to force the surrender of a Panamanian dictator. The Scoop control can elicit the classic Swollen Pickle mid scoop or a flat mid-frequency sweep, the Crunch knob adjusts the compression intensity of the fuzz, and the Clip control varies between two sets of clipping diodes for smooth or opened fuzz sustain.
To top it off, this pedal is emblazoned with limited edition artwork from legendary rock artist Dirty Donny.
I like that this limited edition moves the internal trim pots to the outside to make it easier to shape the tone.
