Smitty Pedals Smitty Bender Mk1.5



Smitty Pedals

The new Smitty Pedals SMITTY BENDER Mk1.5 is a clone of the Sola Sound Tone Bender MK 1.5. I built the pedal from scratch including drilling the holes, painting the enclosure, researching and constructing the circuit board, and all final assembly and testing. The Lettering is hand-painted by Kimberly Smith.


  • a matched set of PNP Germanium transistors. A black glass OC75 transistor and a metal can OC76 Mullard transistor.
  • Internal bias adjustment pot so you can adjust the sound to your taste.
  • Hand-wired, point-to-point circuit board.
  • True Bypass Switching.
  • Drop down resistor added to prevent popping when switching the effect on and off.
  • Hammered Grey paint finish. (They grey is darker in person then it appears in the photos)

The new version has an external bias knob.
