    $50 on the way, via Reverb. $149 retail. that's how I roll.

    I'm totally into OD. But I don't have a quality distortion box.

    Bringing back memories of my Harmony guitar days plugged into living room stereo from the early 80's and MXR +. If you recall, MXR +, at the time, was considered a high quality sought after go to boutique pedal.

    The Fat Sandwich Distortion represents a new era in pedal design for Way Huge. In addition to carrying on the Way Huge tradition of amazing tone, rugged construction and cool names, the Fat Sandwich Distortion 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 Distortion 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 Distortion is versatile and over the top-the consummate distortion pedal for any genre or playing style.

    Is it an OD pedal or a Distortion pedal?

    Yeah, but what does it DO ?:ohno:

    mtm I hope you love it. I'm interested to know if their distortion offerings are as impressive as their other types of effects.

    I've had a couple of Way Huge pedals and still have an Aqua Puss, and it sounds absolutely beautiful.

    Top shelf gear, no doubt.

    Multi stage clipping circuit.

    I like the sound of that. MXR + has a nasally bite. I imagine this pedal has MXR roots, but highly improved, which is what I pine for.

    On the wrong side of the tracks.
    I liked it better when there were only 3 effects pedals.
