tjon901's review"Update on a classic boutique pedal"

Way Huge Electronics WHE202 Green Rhino Overdrive
The original Green Rhino was introduced in the early 90s as a heavily modified Tubescreamer. Now 20 years later there is an update to that pedal and the Green Rhino name is back. The Way Huge company and its founder Jeorge Tripps is back with Dunlop support making his pedals again. The pedal at its base is a tubescreamer but it has more adjustments and versatility. Volume, Tone, and Drive controls are laid out exactly like the control set on the original Green Rhino pedal. But there are two additional small potentiometers on the Mk II for expanding the boundaries of the Green Rhino’s tonal territory. The first one of these controls is for frequencies at the 100 hz range. It allows you to boost or cut the low end from the pedal giving you a more natural sound. The small curve knob controls frequencies above 1 khz.

UTILIZATION

As with most boutique pedals the chassis is very strong and sturdy. It has the classic Way Huge enclosure which is made out of 2 mm thick aluminum. It has a nice weight to it and wont move around on your board. It has a bright blue LED to tell you when it is on and rubber feet on the bottom to stabilize it. It is a true bypass pedal like you would expect. It can be powered by DC or a 9v battery.

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal has a naturally dark sound which I like. Some pedals can give an unnatural brightness to your tone but this one keeps it dark. The extra low end control is something you dont get with a normal tubescreamer so this helps keep the low end and this in turn helps keep the tone pretty dark. This pedal handles the low end so well you could probably play bass through it. You can dial in a subtle tone or an over the top rocking tone with this pedal. The knobs give a good range of control. This pedal works best with a medium drive setting. Because it has so much low end on tap you do not have to dial in huge amounts of gain to keep a thick tone. If you dial back the low end you can get your traditional tube screamer sound. Its pretty bright and a little thin. With the low dialed back you kind of need some amp drive to keep the tone thick. If you boost the low end this pedal sounds good by itself.

OVERALL OPINION

With so many tubescreamer variants out there if you are looking for one you should look for one that fits your style and and preferred sound. This pedal is best for someone who plays with medium amounts of gain and prefers a dark sound. If you dont like the lack of low end most tubescreamers provide this pedal will also suit you. If this sounds like your kind of pedal it probably is. It is not very expensive either for a boutique pedal which is also good.

pic&pulse's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" An overdrive of character"

Way Huge Electronics WHE202 Green Rhino Overdrive
Perfectly Detailed below. I would add that the outline of rglage is actually an adjustment of the central frequencies of the Tone dixit the manual.
Buffered Bypass, clear my ears.
Color class and very very good finish.

USE

The pots are brakes. The size and shape of two large (volume and drive) are very practical to make rglages steals. The tone, smaller, lets use ditto. The two smaller (bass and loudness) are dlicats, especially that for the low is very sensitive, the slightest variation means. The pedal is pretty big, it was the place of your fingers.
The use of the contour is more anecdotal because much less effective. However, it allows for some variation in the answer of mdiums and treble by interacting with the tone.
The drive zero, dj's wrong with a little humbuckers. A background, has the rest of the overdrive, although even when hairy. The volume only feature is important.

SOUND QUALITY

We find the spirit TS with its crmeux no compress a nice grain and mdiums forward. The sound is not smooth and the character. The guitar sound is perfectly respect.
Both rglages supplmentaires allow you to make a sound card and adapt any amp. Very nice on a clear channel. The answer in acute however, is not very tight. Without being dark, we do not vrillera eardrums with.

The pedal is also very effective for shoving a saturated channel (my main use) and the rglages bass tone and take on their utility for either a surplus or otherwise graouh for velouter sound (like Marillion example). Very, very effective.
Beware though, the extreme rglages the drive and bass will from saturation fuzz crappy and without definition.

NOTICE GLOBAL

Permanently on my pedalboard for a few months, I have this pedal us live and test on several amps with the same satisfaction every time. I would compare the Xotic BB Preamp from home (I possde version MB), the Green Rhino with more grain but less acute dfinis.Les uses of beaches are very close (drive rate , rglages bass, Gnrale quality ...).

I test a package of Od (including this one in direct comparison with some standard of the market thank you my prfr mag), and I've always 7 or 8 permanently in the stock house. It is currently in the top 3 of my harem along with the Xotic BB Pramp MB and Ibanez POD1.

Valid.

Way Huge Electronics WHE202 Green Rhino Overdrive
Perfectly detailed below. I would add that the setting contour is actually an adjustment of the central frequencies of the tone, says the manual.
Buffered Bypass, transparent to my ears.
Color classy and very good finish.

UTILIZATION

The pots are well constrained. The size and shape of two large (volume and drive) are very useful to make adjustments on the fly. The tone, smaller, lets handle ditto. The two smaller (bass and stroke) are more difficult, especially for low that is very sensitive, the slightest variation means. The pedal is large enough, it was the place to put your fingers.
The use of contour is more anecdotal because much less effective. However, it helps to have some variation in the response of mids and highs by interacting with the tone.
The drive to zero, it already twisted a little bit with all humbuckers. At bottom, it is the overdrive, but still hairy. Reserve volume is important.

SOUND QUALITY

It features the same TS with its creamy, slightly compressed, nice grain and mediums before. The sound is not smooth and has character. The guitar sound is guaranteed.
The two additional settings allow you to make a sound card and adapt to any amp. Very nice on a clear channel. The treble response is however not extensive. Without dark, there is not vrillera eardrums with.

The pedal is also very effective for shoving a saturated channel (my main use) and then the bass tone settings and take all their usefulness for either a surplus or graouh velouter contrary to sound (like Marillion, for example). Very, very effective.
Be careful though, extreme settings and bass will drive from saturation crappy fuzz and without definition.

OVERALL OPINION

Permanently on my pedalboard for a few months, I have used this pedal live and tested on several amps with the same satisfaction every time. I compare it to the Xotic BB Preamp from home (I own version MB), the Green Rhino with more grain but less acute définis.Les beaches uses are very similar rate (drive, low settings, quality general ...).

I tested a Od package (which it in direct comparison with some market standards, thank you my favorite mag), and I still have 7 or 8 permanently in stock at home. It is currently in the top 3 of my harem along with the Xotic BB Preamp MB and Ibanez POD1.
