Has anyone tried it? I can't afford a wooly mammoth. Does the FF retain a lot of bass frequencies or not?

I think since the release of the Bass Big Muff and the El Grande Bass Fuzz, you can get some great bass-tailored fuzz for a great price. If you're going to go boutique, I wouldn't settle for something you can afford instead of going for the real deal.

If you want to hear a FF on bass, listen to Weatherman by +44.

^ Okay, they definitely helped me a bit.

The thing with not being able to afford a WM is that even if I could (I technically can) I can NOT justify spending $400 on a pedal. Ever. I've been considering the Bass Muff for a while, but if the FF works out well, it has SO many more tonal options than a Muff. That's what I'm trying to figure out here.

If the woolly mammoth is what you want, nothing else comes close to it. However, it is a bit of a one trick pony, with its best sounds all having a synthy edge (saying that, it is the best pedal for getting that Time Is Running Out sound I have ever heard).

If you want versatility, or use an active bass, look away from it to other boutique fuzzes.

You could try it. But you do lose a lot of bass frequencies, and you might have a little too much gain for playing bass with. But if you have a good EQ, maybe you could try to balance it out a little?

I got to admit I start STEAMING when I think about that video of the Wooly Mammoth. He plays 4 notes on, talks longer about Chuck Zwicki than he played bass, then plays guitar on the bass pedal for 2 minutes. Then has the balls to say "listen to those subs!" and hits an E chord. Piece of garbage.
