From the JHS Legends of Fuzz series of vintage-inspired fuzz pedals, the JHS Bender puts the celebrated tone of a rare Sola Sound Tone Bender at your feet. When pedal maker Gary Hurst first introduced the Tone Bender, it was a game changer that was quickly embraced by the artists of the day, including the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Jeff Beck. Over the decades, it has remained a perennial favorite of tone chasers, helping to define the sound of British shoegaze in the late 1980s and early '90s, and now popping up on the pedalboards of revivalist psych rockers and vintage gear enthusiasts. The Bender replicates Josh Scott’s most prized version of the Tone Bender, the 1973 MK3 Silver/Orange “Onomatopoeia” edition. The Bender retains the original 3-germanium-transistor design but rectifies the reliability issues of that unit, giving you all the tone with none of the hassles. Guitarists love the sonic flexibility the Bender has to offer along with its straightforward design and hefty all-metal enclosure. The Bender is a slice of rock ‘n’ roll history that is as relevant today as it was nearly 60 years ago.
