This morning I woke up a little foggy. Desperate for coffee, and while hearing it percolating in the background, one word popped into my head. Fuzz. I stumbled across the MXR M-182 El Grande Bass Fuzz and wanted to take a little closer look. Especially, since I had a chance to talk about a bass pedal. Bass players like pedals too right?
Here is the official description of the MXR M-182 El Grande Bass Fuzz (say it out loud, it’s fun to say – El Grande Fuzz. Make sure you roll your Rs).
The El Grande Bass Fuzz, the latest offering from MXR Bass Innovations, is a versatile and brutal fuzz designed just for bass. We took a classic 70’s fuzz circuit, re-tuned it for more low end, and added a DEEP switch that delivers up to +15dB of monstrous bass that is internally adjustable between 87Hz – 113Hz. And that’s not all: Volume, Tone, and Fuzz controls let you sculpt your tone with precision to get everything you need – from searing, sustained upper-register chords to punchy, growling low B’s – without sacrificing low end or clarity. The El Grande comes in a lightweight but durable aluminum casting with the same high-quality jacks and switches that have made MXR pedals the road-ready standard on pedal-boards around the world for over 30 years.
