Meet The Pedals

Fuzz Haze

The Fuzz Haze is a recreation of the Germanium Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face. The original was made famous by Jimi Hendrix and favored by Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, and countless others. Players like this had the luxury of cherry-picking the best fuzz pedals and then having them tweaked further by techs like Roger Mayer. 

Stone Bender

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.

Strange Master

The Throbak Strange Master is a recreation of the Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster used by Eric Clapton, Brian May, and Tony Iommi. In keeping with Throbak's Signature Sound philosophy, the Strange Master includes both germanium and silicon transistors which means you can get classic Dallas Rangemaster treble booster germanium tones and higher gain silicon treble booster tones from one pedal!

Overdrive Boost

ThroBak has reproduced and improved the circuit of the original Colorsound Power Boost pedal (also known as the Colorsound Overdriver). The original was used by David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, and other pros to become an integral part of 70s signature tones. This pedal was also a favorite of Marc Bolin and is considered by many to be the best overdrive/boost ever made.
