The JHS Bender Fuzz Pedal is their recreation of the most prized Tonebender in founder Josh Scott's collection, a 1973 MK3 Silver/Orange 'Onomatopoeia' version, but with modern day reliability and some extra versatility.
The original version has three very special germanium transistors, tons of mojo and fifty plus years of experience, but it is finicky and doesn’t always do what you want it to do, JHS set about replicating the pedal sonically, capturing what it's all about, but in a way that is more consistent, dependable, and easy to manufacture. The end result is a pedal that gives you the touch, feel and response of the vintage germanium fuzz but with accuracy and consistency of carefully chosen modern silicon transistors.
The controls are Volume, Tone and Attack, Attack is the distortion control, the more you turn it clockwise, the more fuzz you create. On the side of the pedal is a 'Mode' switch, this adds more gain and a mid frequency boost to send your leads soaring through the mix, with higher attack settings in this mode you will feel the fuzz slightly gate depending on your picking dynamics. If you want a fuzz that can go from middle of the road crunch distortion to full out aggression, the Bender is for you. The tone control is extremely flexible and allows for dozens of sonic variations that most fuzz users only dream about.
