Overview

Super Badass Variac Fuzz

Ever since Jimi Hendrix exploded onto the scene in the 1960's, players have been chasing that classic fuzz tone. What many guitarists have discovered is that different voltage affects the sound of a fuzz pedal to a great extent. These magical fuzz tones are referred to as 'dying battery sound'. Needless to say without a draw full of half dead batteries, this tone is difficult to replicate on standard fuzz pedals. Que the Super Badass Variac Fuzz.

The Super Badass Variac Fuzz features a voltage control ranging from 5v to 15v. This allows for an insane amount of  control over your desired fuzz tone.

Heres What MXR Have To Say About The Super Badass Variac

The Super Badass Variac Fuzz is a dream come true for guitar players chasing vintage fuzz tone. This tasty fuzz is aggressive and biting, and with the twist of a knob, you can drag it into that “dying battery” territory much prized by tonechasers—no need to manage a collection of half-dead batteries.

To create the Super Badass Variac Fuzz, the MXR design team dusted off a rare vintage silicon circuit, tuned it up, and added a Variac control so you can set the pedal’s voltage anywhere from 5 to 15V. For that wonderful saggy fuzz effect you get as a 9V battery loses its power, just lower the voltage by turning the Variac knob counterclockwise. Increasing the voltage raises the effect’s headroom, opening up the fuzz for a more transparent sound at 15V.

The Super Badass Variac Fuzz’s simple interface is rounded out with Tone, Output, and Gain controls, and it all comes in a road-ready housing with true bypass switching.
