I recently bought a pair of Vass on the New Peter last. Was wondering how Vass is actually pronounced in Hungarian. Anyone know?

Can't speak to the pronunciation of the "ss", but the "a" is most certainly a short "a" if you want the Hungarian pronunciation. Pronounced like the "vo" in "volleyball" or "vamos" in Spanish.

Anyway, french for cow is a reasonable approximation.
