The Crazy Tubes Circuits Black Magic MKII is a very versatile distortion pedal that utilizes JFET cascaded gain stages to emulate the response of a high gain tube amp. The pedal also features a separate Boost footswitch to take things to the next level – the boost amount can be controlled through a separate volume boost.
A three band EQ section and a Presence knob allow to tailor this pedal’s sound to any ear, need and/or amp, while the gorgeous Pop Art graphics are bound to attract a lot of attention.

Utilizing JFET technology cascaded gain stages we set out to mimic the signal path and response of a high gain tube amp. Combining the best sounds of American and British style high gain amps along with a versatile 3 band passive EQ and presence control we created a distortion effect that can cover a wide range of gain from low overdrive – crunchy sounds to fully saturated gain with huge amounts of sustain. Even at high gain settings Black Magic mk2 preserves full clarity and definition and can clean up with your guitar’s volume knob. With an assignable boost footswitch you can select to boost gain, volume or both in order to stand out for your solo without the need to change settings on the fly.
