Angry Troll joins Way Huge range

Booster pedal adds up to 50dB of gain!

Launched in 1992 by electronics engineer Jeorge Tripps, Way Huge pedals have gained something of a following over the years and are credited by some for having kick-started the boutique pedals market. <strong>Angry Troll Linear Booster: </strong>According to JHS, the Angry Troll's two controls interact like a vintage mic preamp.However, in 1999, Tripps shut up shop to concentrate on other ventures, creating a surge in prices for his pedals, which rejoiced in wonderful names like the Red Llama Overdrive, the Foot Pig Fuzz, the Aqua-Puss Analog Delay and the Swollen Pickle Jumbo (we kid you not).

Now the Way Huge brand has made a comeback, via Dunlop Manufacturing — which will be a great relief (or maybe not) to those who have been paying hundreds of dollars for early examples via eBay.

With Jeorge Tripps personally involved in the project, Dunlop have just launched the Angry Troll Linear Boost, which adds a mere (!) 50dB of boost to your signal. It's designed, UK distributors JHS say, to add, "bite and punch while transforming your mild-mannered tone into a beastly sonic onslaught!"

The Anger knob — a rotary switch with six 'Fists of Fury' positions — adjusts the amount of gain created by the Troll's internal op-amp, while the Volume knob regulates the overall output level.

Expect a price of around £172.
