The Algal Bloom is a harmonically rich, wide-range fuzz! From mellow to gritty overdrives, to "just
right" thickness, to mind-altering harmonic fuzz tones! An open tone with a full body...fantastic
definition and note-separation. Unique interactive controls allow you to alter the response and
texture of the fuzz. Surging fuzz textures, all the way up to a throaty roar!
The BASS BLOOM delivers just what bassists have been asking for: that Algal Bloom tone, with
more low-end and smooth clean blending to seriously open up your sound! With the new Clean
knob, you can get the perfect MIX of pure bass and big fuzz!
• Gain: Gain adjustment and clean-up! As you back it off, it cleans up your fuzz, also adding a hint of
sputter and fizzle. Hard right is full-on!
• Bloom (Fuzz): Expands and pushes your fuzz tone, adding gain, sustain, and definition. Hard right is
maxed out...a unique, throaty, brash-yet-full tone! 12 o'clock is its "home setting," for thick fuzz tone!
• Starve (Texture): Limits the amount of power that reaches the circuit, creating some beautifully sick
fuzz textures that mimic a dying battery (slight scratch as circuit rebiases).
• Clean: Your volume control for clean, smoothly blending clean unfuzzed tone!
• Fuzz Volume: Your volume control for fuzz!

|"It's fantastic! All that great signature clarity is there, and it
goes from a nice light grind to a huge mean fuzz! You really
hit a home run with this."
--Matt H., CA
"It sounds super cool and looks great."
--Dave U., CA
"It sounds as awesome as it looks. Or looks as awesome as it
--Anthony L., AUS
"The Bass Bloom sounds great. The Clean blend is done so
friggin' well... I like how you can actually boost the clean
signal above unity and it doesn't change the tone at all."
--Christian A., MI
"The Bass Bloom offered endless textures of fuzz, while
effectively preserving the low end of both basses. [It] allows
you to create a spectrum of different fuzz tones that work well
with both active and passive basses. Bassists from rock to
funk camps can find a number of useful sounds within its
responsive controls, all at a price point that is competitive
with its peers."
--Premier Guitar Review, October '12
|What users are saying...
|One Slight B-Stock
(Slight smudge in print)
|Formidable fuzz with both
basses. Starting with the
Warwick fretless, I was able to
create tones ranging from synthy
P-Funk to flatulent, Les "...the
Bloom and Gain dials created
some Claypool-like dirt. And
when I went to my detuned
Nash, boosting the Bloom evoked
a burly buzz that was capable of
handling any stoner-rock gig. I
could even cop a Cliff Burton-
esque tone by combining the
Bass Bloom with a wah pedal.
FuzzHugger’s latest offering for
bassists also tracked low barre
chords and double-stops with
quickness and definition."
