For 2017, Walrus has decided it was time for our multi-clip fuzz to get a few nips, tucks, and a makeover. Re-skinned with both new artwork and enclosure color, the already articulate and versatile fuzz has been tweaked to become an even more powerfully agile fuzz box.
The Jupiter Fuzz V2 updates are as follows:
• Increase of gain on tap.
• Adjusted volume control making it easier to dial in unity gain.
• Altered tone control for improved high frequency response.
• Added gate control via internal trim pot to tame noise, or to achieve the spatty “dying battery” tones.
To adjust the Trim Pot, open the pedal’s enclosure and turn upside down. Inside the pedal you will find a small blue square with an adjustable screw. Turning the screw all the way to the left will give the most gated sound. This is where the “dying battery” effect kicks in. Turning all the way to the right opens the pedal up and decreases the noise gate.
The Jupiter V2 comes in a coal sparkle finish with a burnt orange and cream ink and brushed aluminum knobs. Artwork features a lone astronaut explorer that never finished his journey. Stranded on one of Jupiter’s 67 moons, we may never know what put him there.
The die-cast enclosure’s exact size is 4.77” x 2.6” x 1.39”.
