Erafuzz The Italian V - 1966 Tone Bender Replica



The Italian V is a handmade replica of the original 1966 Italian Vox Tone Bender. Built from top quality components, The Italian V is based on two germanium transistors like the original. Moreover, it includes two internal bias controls, which create two different fuzz textures available via toggle switch, and three more toggle switches for tone filtering. It sounds excellent with both single coils and humbucker pickups. Also, it interacts amazingly with the guitar's volume knob to produce a wide variety of fuzz tones. The “Attack” and “Level” knobs adjust the fuzz and volume, and the true-bypass footswitch preserves the guitar tone.
