Top 10 Guitar Effects & Pedals
Instead of going for straightforward gain, this pedal utilizes varying mixtures of clean and overdriven signals as you tweak the gain knob higher or lower.
Like its predecessor, the Pork Loin Overdrive, this new pedal is designed to deliver organic amp-like tones. To achieve this, Jeorge Tripps and his Way Huge team decided to separate the clean and overdrive signal paths and find the best combinations for the pedal’s entire gain range.
The press release says, “the Saucy Box derives its unparalleled versatility from discrete clean and overdrive signal paths, combining them to deliver one of the most organic, amp-like overdrive pedals available.
Controlling the mix of your clean and overdriven tone is an interesting approach to getting great dirt sounds. The pedal itself automatically balances the optimum ratio of the clean and overdriven tone and all of this is done with just a single knob,
Because of this unique design, the pedal is able to produce a wide variety of overdriven tones, and can also double as a boost pedal for various situations. Way Huge describes it by saying, “This unique design provides for everything from pure a unity-gain buffer to a clean boost and all the way to a salaciously buttery overdrive. To top it all off, this pedal has a passive tone circuit that will play nice with any pickup type. It’s okay to think inside THIS box. Get saucy!“

For something that has complicated circuitry, the Saucy Box has a surprisingly straightforward set of controls. The most noteworthy of which is the Drive knob which changes the ratio of clean and overdriven tone automatically as you adjust the gain. The Tone knob is said to be passive and allows for basic tone shaping. Finally, the volume knob will let you adjust the output level of the signal.
