Big Knob Pedals Tone Blender MkI '65


Big Knob Pedals

Big Knob Pedals presents "TONE BLENDER"

An exact circuit and component replica of the classic fuzz that started it all in the mid-60s. The Tone Bender has become a thing of legend owing to the sheer number of classic tracks it was used on during the 60s and 70s. Jeff Beck (“Heartful of Soul”) and Jimmy Page (“Communication Breakdown”) were just a small sampling of its early converts. Others like Mick Ronson famously kept his throughout the seventies to later feature as his signature guitar sound on Bowie’s ground-breaking “Spiders From Mars” album.

100% hand-wired and made with all quality components including a solid die-cast Hammond case, Electro-Harmonix heavy-duty 3PDT true bypass footswitch and, last but not least, three old-school-variety germanium transistors (no silicon here; using only those original big cans!) that are selectively paired for optimum quality and that authentic tone.
