SolidGoldFX's nod to the JEN Jumbo Fuzz.
Upon first glance at the Imperial MKII, you might be intrigued by its charmingly retro appearance.
Inspired by the JEN Jumbo fuzz, the Imperial MKII’s four sliders, textured black paint and bold red graphics shows that this pedal means business!
If a ripping, royally raucous fuzz, with impeccable manners, is what you seek in your tone conquest, this one's for you!
Also chasing soaring Gilmour-esque leads that propel you to the far side of the moon? Look no further than the Imperial MKII.
So, what is the JEN Jumbo Fuzz and what makes it so awesome?
JEN Elettronica was an Italian manufacturer who made pedals for Vox, Dallas Arbiter and Sound City, in addition to making equipment under their own brand.
The Jumbo Fuzz was their spin on the venerable EHX Big Muff that swapped the knobs out for sliders and added a nifty germanium noise gate.
In terms of sound, the tuning of the Jumbo Fuzz lies somewhere in the Ram’s Head camp: not overly scooped or woofy, with a nice gain range.
While the Jumbo’s noise gate is a great feature, vintage units vary greatly from one unit to another (with some gating too much and others not at all).
Capturing the Jumbo Fuzz’s vibe and redesigning the gate was essential to the Imperial's redesign.
Let’s dive in!
The MKII retains SolidGoldFX's high impedance JFET preamp, giving the low noise floor detail and definition you would expect from any SolidGoldFX pedal.
Stick it anywhere in your effects chain and feel free to ride your volume knob for clean-up: the Imperial’s preamp will respond.
A new Contour slider replaces the mids switch, which changes the frequency of the high-pass filter in the tone stack.
This allows you to boost or scoop your mids, with every shade in between.
SolidGoldFX swapped out the Jumbo Fuzz’s germanium transistor design with silicon devices and given it an improved envelope generator.
This ensures consistency and response throughout.
The noise gate is where the Imperial MKII really shines!
Not only does the noise gate allow for virtually zero noise, but it also gives the pedal a unique, sharp attack with no loss of sustain at higher fuzz settings.
Align this to a nice, dry attack at low settings, and Imperial MKII will pair great with other dirt boxes too.
The noise gate will even allow you to add fuzz to a hollow-body, while controlling the howl and feedback should you choose!
