SolidGold FX has unveiled its new Imperial MKII fuzz pedal.
Based on the rare JEN Jumbo Fuzz (which was itself based on the iconic Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi) this gated fuzz pedal features Volume, Tone, Fuzz, and Contour – which, by changing the high pass filter frequency, adjusts the midrange – controls.
A true bypass footswitch and two LEDs – one indicating gate status and the other indicating bypass status – also feature at the front of the pedal.
Notably, the Imperial MKII opts for sliders rather than knobs, for a unique and retro visual touch.
The SolidGold FX Imperial MKII fuzz pedal is available now for $199.
