Mattoverse has unveiled the Bad Passenger Fuzz MKII, an update of its popular fuzz pedal.

The update is highlighted by a new character switch that can take you from “bright aggressive grind" to "darker compressed filth,” and a redesigned output control that allows users to access as much gain as they want, regardless of output volume.

The pedal's redesigned circuit combines cascaded transistor and op-amp gain stages for more punchy fuzz and distortion tones. 

The Mattoverse Bad Passenger Fuzz MKII pedal is available now, in limited quantities, for $99.
