Jeorge Tripps’ Way Huge pedal company is releasing a limited run unit called simply Drive, limited to only 500 units worldwide. With a custom circuit and a simple three-knob control setup, is this his best drive pedal to date?
Way Huge Drive
Once considered a boutique pedal company, Way Huge is now part of the Jim Dunlop empire. The company has around six or seven overdrive pedals last time I looked, including the Doubleland Special and Overrated Special Overdrive, Saucy Drive, Red Llama, Pork Loin, Green Rhino and of course the infamous Camel Toe twin overdrive pedal.
Jeorge is famous for his great pedals and his somewhat childish names for them, including things like the Swollen Pickle fuzz pedal, for example. Surprisingly, there are no double entendres here. Jeorge has opted for a simple name for this pedal. Has Jeorge grown up at last? Let us hope not!
The Way Huge Drive has a simple, three-knob control setup. Let’s face it, that’s all you’re likely to need to dial in your overdrive sounds. I think that is no bad thing, as less is often more with drive pedals.
The pedal is accompanied by plectrums and a pick tin featuring the custom artwork emblazoned on each pedal. It’s available in Blue or Red editions. There are also a couple of slightly rarer editions with variations on those themes that I cannot find listed on the company website that have appeared over on Tumblr and Instagram, so keep an eye out for those ones.
I would suggest that you check out the video below and if you want one, you may need to get your order in fairly sharpish as the release is limited to 500 pedals worldwide. They do look nice, and if you are in the market for a good quality overdrive pedal then these could be a good bet. The price isn’t overly expensive. I have owned a few Way Huge pedals and I found them to be well built and made to last.
