The Jupiter V2 is an updated version of the incredibly popular Jupiter Fuzz. It's a Swiss army knife of a fuzz pedal that can take you from 'dying-battery' sputtery sounds to full-blown harmonic richness (it's easy to attain this by adjusting the internal trim pot).
On top of your normal Level, Tone and Fuzz settings you've got a bass boost toggle switch and a mode switch that goes between 3 different clipping diode arrangements. Imagine this as a cool, hot, hotter switch. And when combining the bass boost and high-gain clipping mode you'll attain a thick fuzz that can still cut through any mix.
The options are endless and you can use the fuzz knob to boost the sustain for lead solo's or bring it down for jagged riffs.

The Jupiter is a true bypass fuzz pedal inspired by the desire for gritty, thick and loud fuzz. Fuzz pedals tend to emphasize specific frequency ranges, which is both a positive and negative attribute. The Jupiter’s controls allow you the ability to dial in the right amount of fuzz with the right tonal quality to either stand out in the mix, or ride it out with the drums and rhythm. It includes a Mode switch that changes between three different clipping diode arrangements, providing more options and combinations of fuzz and tone and a Bass boost toggle switch for increased low end.
