A later addition to the Tonebender family, the MK111 is a more modern Tonebender. Still retaining much of the feel and vibe of previous Tonebender's, the MK111 has a smoother fuzz with almost a touch of 'overdrive' at certain settings. Less saturation than the MK11 but still with lots of available fuzz. The MK111 retains all the characteristic's that make any great Germanium fuzz, superb clean-up, lovely sustain and real warmth.
The real magic in this Tonebender is the addition of a Tone pot that has a really great sweep from full, thick and chunky through to sharp and biting. There is lots of interplay between the 3 controls offering almost unlimited amounts usable tones. Adopted later on by Jimmy Page amongst others, this is by far the most flexible of the Tonebender family.
Check out the You Tube demo video to get just some idea of the tones hidden in this pedal.
Modelled from my great sounding original, the Williams MK111 Fuzz is handmade in the UK and remains VERY faithful to the original circuit . At the heart of the MK111 is 3 carefully matched Germanium transistors, these will usually be a mixture of OC72's and an AC125. All the transistors are nos (new old stock).
**If a DC Socket is requested, it will require a Reverse Polarity 9V Supply, I recommend the Voodoo Labs PP2+ but other some manufacturers also offer this option, please check your unit and Contact me if you are unsure. Warranty does not include damage caused by incorrect power supply usage. Please inform me if this option is required.
