Mattoverse has released the Bad Passenger Fuzz MKII, a “badder than ever” update of the company’s popular fuzz pedal.

The new version boasts a redesigned circuit that combines cascaded transistor and op-amp gain stages for “brutal” fuzz and distortion tones.

There’s also a new character switch that toggles between “bright aggressive grind or a darker compressed filth,” as well as a redesigned output control that allows users to access the full amount of gain regardless of the output volume.

The Bad Passenger Fuzz MKII is available in limited quantities for $99. To pick one up, head to Mattoverse.
