TONE BENDER fuzz style! (I specify because I saw a review on someone complaining about not having the Hendrix sound! ... I had to make a fuzz face.
The polarity is reversed, so remember to leave a stack, if you do not have what it takes.

UTILIZATION

Config 'very simple, 3 knobs, classical

SOUND QUALITY

This is the big fuzz that spot, the grain is nice, nothing to say, if you're looking for vintage very realistic, this is not the pedal for you, the tone knob works very well on the whole race, the gain is really monumental, even with the knob to zero, pickled ca

Fuzz made in the USA and with 3 Germanium transistors matched giving it his trademark fuzz.
The pedal is very simple, white on blue lettering.
There are 3 knobs: Gain, Level and Tone, nothing but classic. However, for external supply, you must use a power supply with center positive and there this time it is not typical at all! This is due to the Germanium transistors which have the effect of reversing the polarity in the internal circuitry of the effects pedal.
When you open it, it is actually very serious, well wired with quality components.

UTILIZATION

Usage is very simple, plug and play.

UTILIZATION

Usage is very simple, plug and play.

SOUND QUALITY

Used in several amps (Marshall JCM 800, Orange Tiny Terror, VHT Pitbull), with several guitars (Fender Stratocaster, Gibson SG, Les Paul Two), with several different jacks, placed in different places in my pedalboard with a new battery, j "I really found the bad sound ...
In clean (special mention of nullity) or a crunch, I did not find my happiness. I was unpleasantly surprised by this pedal harvest so much praise on the internet and that sounds so good on Youtube videos ... Frankly I did not understand ... My copy was defective??
The sound was shrill, no bass, no mids but many highs. And I thought back to the sound Jimi Hendrix with my Strat on the crunch channel of my JCM 800 ... Missed!

OVERALL OPINION

I must admit that I was stunned. But I had focused model among many other "Vintage Fuzz" (Fulltone 69 Catalinbread Merkin, Fulltone 70, Analog Man Sun Face ...) and that is where I prefer to play videos Youtube ... Like what.
How a pedal that you pay € 200 and uses components of such high quality it could produce a sound as bad? I immediately returned to the store that has paid me and did not try to take another "to see." It's a bit like poker, sometimes you need to know before going to bed to "carpet".
Maybe my copy was faulty but honestly I do not care. I prefer to move on now!

A beautiful grain

Analog pedal germanium shop at fulltone.
Very true to what the brand usually offers: solid construction, handmade (serial number engraved on the pedal) and true bypass

Two features:
- Reverse Polarity: need to add to your diet extremity of a polarity inverter (Cost: 5 €)
- The tone knob works the opposite of what we find on od or distortion pedal classic ie loaded to its acute 8:00 to 4:00 p.m. its low charge.

UTILIZATION

3 knobs decorate the box settings: a level, a tone and a dirt (which manages the level of fuzz). No manual, just a little note manufacturer's enough.

- The tone knob works the opposite of what we find on od or distortion pedal classic ie loaded to its acute 8:00 to 4:00 p.m. its low charge.

UTILIZATION

3 knobs decorate the box settings: a level, a tone and a dirt (which manages the level of fuzz). No manual, just a little note manufacturer's enough.

The settings are very subtle, knobs interact more efficiently than the od / distortion traditional. The pedal is also very sensitive to changes in volume on the guitar.

I use it with a clear and typed fender les paul with the volume at 13H, the dirt and the tone almost fully (so around 16:00): its bold guaranteed! Can also be from a crunch but beware seriously reduce the level of dirt to maintain clarity.

-1 on the other hand for access to the battery: you must unscrew the base with 4 side screws and I struggled a lot to put the base.

SOUND QUALITY

Excellent, beautiful qualifiers do not miss, you get screaming sounds but still very musical and singing not aggressive.

It can give a sacred thickness to your sound with incredible sustain lead with a grain 70's (hendrix, led zep, for example) or the vintage modern black crowes example. It makes you want to play psyche!

I also tested the coupling with other pedals

- With a wah placed before soulbender is downright intoxicating, a little wah boosting the signal I reduce the volume a bit on the guitar and there you can talk to your guitar like a hendrix: completely enjoyable!

- With a fulltone plimsoul placed before the fuzz (it makes me so following chain: guitar> wah> plimsoul> fuzz) is not bad either.
I use plimsoul with a gain set to minimum and let the soulbender with a somewhat probing rate fuzz and overdrive sound gets a color slightly "fuzzy." The resulting sound is a slightly less dirty in this case, and the record is a little more modern.

However, some settings are not tjrs proved very successful, especially when I use the bridge pickup with a low rate of fuzz, some notes tend to remain muted. This is why I prefer to let the dirt almost set up and adjust the rate of the volume on the fuzz guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

Extremely satisfied with this pedal is an open door to give expression to your lead parts, pedal to get a good mix.
Can also have fun snapping rhythm to play the classic rock (Sunshine of your love, for example) with a sound very similar to those heard on the recordings of the 70's (tested over the first led zep, soul bender was very faithful). By adding treble with the tone knob you can get sounds more "stoner" more modern, so polyavalente still this little wonder.
I had never owned a fuzz before, so I can not compare with other products but in all cases the sound I draw suits me perfectly.
