Tony Spinner: „I just spent some time playing the Tony‘s Bender Tool and my ears are ringing! That is a good thing. This pedal gets the classic sound that Jeff Beck used to have during The Jeff Beck Group days! Unbelievable controlled feedback!“

 

Sola Sound Tone Bender professional MKII History

The Sola Sound Tone Bender professional MKII is a legendary fuzz pedal from the 1960’ties and has become a legend amongst guitarist world wide because of it’s high gain character. It is originally developed around 1967 by UK based company called Sola Sound. Amongst legendary guitar players who create(d) their unique sound with a Sola Sound Tone Bender MKII professional are Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck.

Technology concept

The Sola Sound Tone Bender is in principle a Fuzz Face circuit with an added gain stage upfront. Next to that some values of passive components are changed giving it a more trebly and less bassy character than a Fuzz Face.

Despite the high gain the Sola Sound Tone Bender MKII professional still has an excellent dynamics and clean up character reacting on your playing dynamics and use of guitar volume knob.

Because of the high gain and the broad frequency spectrum the Sola Sound Tonebender MKII professional can easily slip into controlled feedback. The original promotional leaflet stated that up to 20 seconds! of sustain can be easily achieved.

Matched transistor setup - Three selected & matched NOS Germanium transistors    

 

Impedance Conversion Interface (on/off) - converting an active input signal (EMG pickups, Wireless system) to a signal suited for the TrebleTool and thus retaining the character of the effect

 

Fuzz control - control the amount of Fuzz /Gain

 

Continuous variable range control (T.M.F.) - dial in the amount of low end

 

Volume control - adjust the overall output volume of the effect

 

The PaulSwitch ® - robust true bypass footswitch to switch effect on/off & to avoid tone sucking in bypass operation

 

Pre warning Battery low indication - led dims when battery is below threshold voltage to guarantee a consistent sound character

 

External power supply - (noise reduced) providing the option to use an external power supply without inducing noise or changing the character of the sound

 

Reverse and over voltage protection - to protect the sensitive germanium transistors

 

Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) suppression - avoiding radio signal reception when using high gain setting in combination with turning down guitar volume
