Our Verdict

A gritty, thick fuzz with impressive tonal versatility.


  • Flexible dialling options. Good value for money, given the versatility.


  • Not a lot.

Walrus Audio says the Jupiter is inspired by the desire for gritty, thick and loud fuzz.

It features pretty standard level, fuzz and tone knobs but sports a pair of toggle switches to add more options.

"With three distinct flavours of fuzz, you are getting plenty for your money here"

One is a bass boost that thickens the low end if you are looking for a weightier sound. The other's a mode switch, offering three different clipping diode arrangements.

The difference between these depends on where you set the level knob, but, with it set at a standard 12 o'clock position, the middle switch position offers an upfront overdrive/distortion, while the two outer settings offer a quieter, more saturated fuzz, one side having plenty of upper-mid presence, the other a more scooped character.

Combining these three options with a wide-ranging tone knob gives the pedal plenty of clout for dialling in a tone that perfectly suits your set-up.

With three distinct flavours of fuzz, you are getting plenty for your money here.
