Jext Telez Dizzy Tone

Various

Jext Telez

The Jext Telez Dizzy Tone is a recreation of the original 1966-67 Elka Dizzy Tone, a variant of the Sola Sound Tonebender MKIII. The Dizzy Tone is the edgy brother to the Baldwin Burns Buzzaround. Dizzy Tones are one of the fullest sounding Tonebender variations with an evil attitude- roaring, spitting, screaming goodness.

Jext Telez desoldered a prime original Elka Dizzy Tone and measured drift on original components. There were variations noted and incorporated from the commonly perceived stock values of Dizzy Tones as well.

The Jext Telez Dizzy Tone brings the two extremes closer together--a players fuzz with a snarling lip. It's a fine-tuned and perfectly balanced fuzz.

There are three versions of the Jext Telez Dizzy Tone. All are limited edition replicas in the same wedge case finished in crinkle coat. Jext Telez uses the same board construction with no expense spared part selection throughout-- especially the sourced, measured and circuit tested original germanium transistors.

  1. Version one, the standard model, features the same new-old-stock trio of two SFT352 and one SFT308 germanium transistors as most original examples. It's the rawest of the three models-- flames of rage and a present top-end.

  2. Version two is a limited edition of 40 featuring a selected NOS black glass Mullard OC44 germanium transistor-- which is what the dissected original had. The OC44 model delivers thick, balanced and wooly tone and adds a low midrange presence.

  3. Version three takes the Dizzy Tone further into rich timbres by featuring an ultra rare holy grail Mullard OC44 Yellow Jacket germanium transistor-- limited edition. The OC44YJ has smooth, classy midrange, a prestigious tone and touch sensitivity.
