Our Fuzz Bender Mk I.V is an accurate replica of the dual-transistor-based fuzz circuit of the Bender family. This is a very interesting circuit in that it very closely resembles the Germanium Fuzz, but because of some differences in the components’ values, it sounds distinctively different. It is thicker and wilder than Germanium, but much less aggressive in comparison to a Fuzz Bender. This is really the pedal for those who want something in between.
Similarly to the rest of our Mojo Series pedals, we have sourced an amazing stock of rare and highly sought after NOS components; some amazing NOS Mullard and Philips capacitors, NOS Allen Bradley carbon composition resistors, and an array of top grade NOS Mullard germanium transistors.
We follow our same tradition of extreme attention to detail when putting these pedals together. Every component used is of the highest quality, with absolutely no compromise. The circuit is also housed in a high quality aluminium enclosure, professionally powder coated to our exact specification.
Please note: the product’s image shows some of the optional features, which won’t be included unless these are purchased with the pedal.
