The MXR Super Badass Variac Fuzz is a highly coveted fuzz pedal that brings vintage fuzz tones to guitar players' fingertips. This aggressive and biting fuzz pedal offers a unique twist with its Variac control, allowing you to achieve the prized dying battery effect without the hassle of managing half-dead batteries.

To create the Super Badass Variac Fuzz, the MXR design team took inspiration from a rare vintage silicon circuit, fine-tuning it to perfection, and added the innovative Variac control. With the Variac knob, you can adjust the pedal's voltage anywhere from 5V to 15V. Lowering the voltage by turning the knob counterclockwise creates that signature saggy fuzz effect reminiscent of a 9V battery losing power. On the other hand, increasing the voltage by turning the knob clockwise raises the effect's headroom, resulting in a more transparent and open-sounding fuzz at 15V. This level of control allows you to explore a wide range of fuzz tones, from vintage saturated fuzz to a clearer and more dynamic sound.

The Super Badass Variac Fuzz features a straightforward control layout with Tone, Output, and Gain controls, making it easy to dial in your desired fuzz sound. Whether you seek a tight and focused fuzz or a more aggressive and saturated tone, the Super Badass Variac Fuzz delivers the versatility to suit your playing style.

Enclosed in a road-ready housing with true bypass switching, this pedal is built to withstand the rigors of live performances and studio use. Its robust construction ensures it can handle the demands of gigging musicians while maintaining its consistent and reliable performance.

This pedal can be powered using a 9-volt battery for convenience, or it is compatible with the Dunlop ECB003 9-volt adapter, as well as MXR's DC Brick, Iso-Brick, and Mini Iso-Brick power supplies (though these power supplies are not included with the pedal).

For guitarists seeking vintage fuzz tones with added versatility, the MXR Super Badass Variac Fuzz is a must-have. Its unique Variac control sets it apart from standard fuzz pedals, giving you the ability to explore a wide range of fuzz sounds and add that touch of vintage character to your tone. Whether you're chasing classic fuzz tones or experimenting with new sounds, the Super Badass Variac Fuzz is sure to inspire your playing.
