A little over a year ago, Simon Neil, frontman of Scottish rock giants Biffy Clyro, announced the Booooom/Blast, a new distortion/fuzz pedal and his first-ever signature stompbox, designed in collaboration with his guitar tech and Gone Fishing Effects founder, Richard “Churd” Pratt. 

That pedal was limited to only 200 units and sold out in just two hours, so Gone Fishing have created another 200, this time sporting an updated peach-colored enclosure and under the banner Booooom/Blast 2.0.
