Modelled on one of my early '70's Colorsound Supa Tonebender pedals, this fuzz is a very different fuzz to the earlier members of the Tonebender family. The Supa Tonebender also sounds amazing with bass guitar and was possibly used at times by Genesis' Mike Rutherford which would tie-in with the fact that Steve Hackett also used a Supa Tonebender at times.
The circuit is very similar to the basic Electro Harmonix Big Muff circuit with some changes in the tone section and one less set of clipping diodes. It is also a silicon transistor circuit and so tone-wise has those characteristics, a harder, brighter fuzz that packs a big punch. One unique part of the Supa Tonebender's sound is that a small amount of the dry signal can be heard in with the fuzz, this helps to create a really great fuzz with it's own character. The overall tone is very Big Muff, lots of sustain, energy and the tone pot offers a huge selection of possible tones.
