Black Cat Pedals is pleased to announce the Monster K-Fuzz stompbox, the latest edition of the veteran pedal maker's uniquely hotrodded version of the Sixties Kay Fuzztone.

The new Monster K-Fuzz stompbox boasts all the bells and whistles and features of previous versions in a pedalboard-friendly enclosure—and at a more affordable price.

The Monster K-Fuzz controls can be set to go anywhere from a vintage Kay to a fire-breathing monster fuzz. Expression pedal control of the Fuzz Frequency allows the same functionality as the former treadle-based versions. And with a look that pays tribute to the Sixties original, the Black Cat Monster K-Fuzz is the ultimate evolution of the Kay Fuzztone.

Monster K-Fuzz stompbox features:

• Expression pedal control of the Fuzz Frequency
• 3-way toggle switches for Clipping and Voicing
• Input Gain adjustment control
• "Pedalboard friendly" stompbox enclosure
• 3PDT true-bypass switch and Switchcraft jacks
• Premium quality through-hole components
• Hand-built in the U.S.

The new Black Cat Monster K-Fuzz stompbox retails for $195.
