This here is one of the rarest pedals made by Lovetone. Rumour has it there is a full set of black Lovetone pedals that were made specifically for a studio in the UK, meaning this one is a one of a kind pedal. I've had it for around 5 years and it's sat in my personal collection. Dated 1995 with a serial number under 100.
The BIG CHEESEâ„¢ is a loving homage to the nasty, buzzy yet gorgeous and harmonically rich early fuzz. While having many of the classic characteristics that every fuzz fan will relate to it goes beyond to create an absolutely distinct character of its own. Its innovative and interactive controls can take it from almost "gated" break-up to overkill of shred proportions.
Far from being just a guitar pedal however the Big Cheeseâ„¢ is eminently useful for seeing to any sound with the temerity to be naff or boring (with particularly amusing consequences in the lower regions). To lovers of that extraordinary spectacle known to some as "furrrzze bass!" it offers terminally thunderous, ripping yet glitch-free and buttock-clenching
mayhem that can only be described as Larry Graham on steroids (as demonstrated to devastating effect by the man himself!).
The Big Cheeseâ„¢ works exceptionally well in the fx loop of the Meatballâ„¢ creating some of the squelchiest curdled sounds ever - particularly true of the "cheese" setting which gives the signal huge dynamics thus cutting through a mix like the fattest, raspiest analogue synth. Coupled in this way with an octaver it can perform an uncanny impersonation of a guitar synth with no delay or tracking worries.
