Solid Gold FX Imperial Mk II fuzz pedal - w/box

Does it doom? Yes, yes it does! Here we have this killer Solid Gold FX Imperial Mk II fuzz pedal - w/box. This fuzz pedal is far more versatile than one might imagine. It has a noise gate within the circuit, a welcomed addition to just about any fuzz nowadays. The sliders provide the user with a wide range of flexibility with style, something we'd love to see on more modern pedals. It just looks cool! In terms of condition, this pedal looks excellent. There is little to no signs of wear or use, and it even comes with the original box. 

Here's what Solid Gold FX has to say: 

Main Features

  • Fuzz pedal inspired by the 70’s Jen Jumbo Fuzz
  • Discrete BMP architecture with high impedance low-noise JFET preamp
  • Big Muff Style Tone Stack with Contour Slider
  • Built in noise gate for virtually zero noise operation even at high gain settings.
  • True bypass switching and top-mounted jacks - for ease of pedalboard mounting 
  • Cool retro-themed design with sliders
  • Hand-made in Montreal, Canada 
  • Powered by a regular 9-18V DC PSU (centre -, 2.1 mm, ~10 mA current draw)

JFET Pre-amp

True to the original SGFX Imperial, the MKII retains our high impedance JFET preamp, giving the low noise floor detail and definition you would expect from any SolidGoldFX pedal. Bass, guitar or synth, stick it anywhere in your effects chain and feel free to ride your volume knob for clean-up - the Imperial’s preamp will respond.

Noise Gate

This is where the Imperial MKII really shines. We’ve swapped out the Jumbo Fuzz’s germanium transistor design with silicon devices and gave it an improved envelope generator, to ensure consistency and response throughout. Having fine-tuned the attack and release, the noise gate allows for virtually zero noise, and gives the pedal a unique attack with no loss of sustain at higher fuzz settings.

Golden-Era Styling

You know, as much as pedals should sound good, we think they need to look good too. Paying homage to the JEN Jumbo Fuzz, the Imperial MKII swaps out knobs for sliders and is completed with dual LED indicators (one for bypass and the other indicating the gate status), top jacks, and true bypass switching.
