"Whole Lotta Fuzz" MK11 Special - Very Limited 3 x Mullard OC81D Transistors - MK11 Tonebender Professional Replica

MK11 Tonebender Mullard OC81D

An amazingly faithful recreation of the early, highly sought after Tonebender MK11 Professional fuzz pedal. 

This version is especially associated with Jimmy Page tones, it has very slightly more mid tone than the standard MK11, sweet, singing sustain, definition, warmth and loves to be played loud! Of course it also cleans-up beautifully with the guitar volume pot.


THIS is THE one for those vintage Jimmy Page Led Zeppelin tones! Partner it up with a great guitar and amp and you are in tone heaven, but of course it doesn't stop there, there is so much more to the MK11.


3 Genuine 1960's Mullard OC81D transistors carefully selected and matched.

Williams Vintage Tone - Classic Tonebender MK11 Professional - Vintage Mullard Transistors - Optional LED

Tonebender Classic

 

THE classic Tonebender used by Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and so many more guitar legends.
Amazingly faithful to the original and as good as the very best vintage or modern Tonebender MK11 you will ever hear.
As close you can get to an original without the big bucks. Similar tones to the 'Whole Lotta Fuzz' model but at a great price.

 

This pedal will Nail those Beck / Page tones and by experimenting with the volume on your guitar will get you to many more classic fuzz tones from The Beatles to The Who to Bowie and beyond.

Williams Ranger Treble Boost - Dallas Range Master Replica - Genuine 1960's Mullard OC44 Transistor - new model

oc44 range master boost pedal

Based on the Dallas Range Master, This was the secret weapon of British guitarist's back in the day.
Used to create Eric Clapton's iconic sounds on the John Mayall "Bluesbreaker" album. Also famously
used by the likes of Rory Gallagher, Marc Bolan ,Tony Iommi and even on older Judas Priest recordings.


Many guitarists have said that it is the single best gear investment they have ever made, turning even the plainest old tube amp into a million dollar sounding amp full of vintage tones and amazing touch sensitivity. Sometimes the simplest things really are the best.

The Ranger now is fitted with a switch that lets you choose between the normal, sweet boosted Ranger tone and a fuller, more rounded boost still with that amazing germanium warmth and tone but also with just that bit more body.

 

I only ever use a Genuine Mullard OC44 germanium transistor from the 1960's as used in the original.

Williams Supa Fuzz - Marshall Supa Fuzz Replica

Williams Supa Fuzz OC75

Built for Marshall Amplification by Sola Sound in the late '60's / early ''70's the Supa Fuzz was one of the

best selling of the Tonebender family and quickly gained fans such as Pete Townshend, Steve Hackett and

Jeff Beck. The Supa Fuzz is the favorite Tonebender model of many people because of its slightly

more 'ballsy' tone whilst still retaining all the aspects of a superb MK11 Tonebender.

 

The Williams Supa Fuzz is modeled on my original and stays as close as possible to the original

components.

- Williams Vintage Tone - MK111 FUZZ - Sola Sound MK111 Tonebender Replica

mk111 mk3 tonebender

Based on my amazing sounding MK111 Tone Bender, the Williams Audio MK111 has all the great warmth,

sustain and clean-up you would expect from a top quality germanium fuzz but is slightly smoother, there

is a touch of slight overdrive tone in here. The MK111 tone pot offers a wealth of sounds from a BIG bottom

through to a sizzling, skinny top end.

Used by the likes of Jimmy Page, there are so many incredible tones to be found in the MK111.

Fuzz Tone FZ-1- Maestro Fuzz Tone FZ-1 Replica

Fuzz Tone FZ-1

The orignal fuzz pedal used on all-time classics like The Rolling Stones Satisfaction. The original gnarly, raspy, honkey sounding vintage fuzz! Love it!


Built using an original as a reference, this build is as close to the original as possible using great vintage parts throughout. The original ran on 3 volts, 2 x aa batteries and so to maintain this part of this pedals unique fuzz sound and for ease of use, the Williams FZ-1 uses a standard 9v (pp3) battery like most other pedals but contains a small circuit to convert this down to the required 3v.

Williams Supa Tone - Supa Tone bender Replica

Fuzz Tone FZ-1

Built using 6 1970's originals as reference to create a big unique silicon fuzz that sounds superb with guitar and bass.

This silicon transistor based Tone Bender has the great fuzz wall of the Big Muff but a unique part of the Supa Tonebender's sound is that a small amount of the dry signal can be heard mixed in with the fuzz tone and this helps to create a really great fuzz with it's own character. Great sounds can be from the tone control, thick and woolly to bright and crisp. Also cleans up nicely with the guitar volume pot.


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.
