5) Way Huge Swollen Pickle.

One of the more recent fuzz pedals on this list, which is mainly dominated by classics. The Way Huge Swollen Pickle was released back in the 90s, but disappeared along with the company not long after, when owner Jeorge Tripps left for Line 6.

Jim Dunlop acquired the rights to Way Huge when Jeorge Tripps left Line 6 and teamed up with Dunlop, and rereleased the pedal, to the joy of fuzz fans everywhere.

Incredibly thick low-end gives this pedal its signature sound, enough booming fuzz to shake the foundations of any music venue.

But it can also be delicate and subtle, one of the better fuzz pedals for reeling off the fuzz a bit and playing some chords.
