Description

If you're a TME regular, you will surely have heard the name ThroBak. The good folks from Grand Rapids, MI supply the fantastic sounding pickups in our Collings electric guitar builds. Well, not only does ThroBak make pickups, they also make some of our favorite effects pedals. Only made sense to offer another flavor of ThroBak products to our customers!

The ThroBak Stone Bender Fuzz is a faithful tonal reproduction of the fabled 3 germanium Sola Sound Tone Bender MKII Professional used by Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. Several features were added that allow you to customize the Stone Bender pedal to create your signature sound - a pre-gain switch makes it a great overdrive pedal as well as a monster high-gain fuzz; a user adjustable internal bias pot; Tone Color switch which takes a touch of treble edge off the tone when activated. 

The original Sola Sound circuit remains, but Throbak have tamed the inconsistencies of the vintage Tone Benders and put the tone changing variables within your control. Very cool indeed!
