Tone Benders. Gotta love them. But just like the Fuzz Face name lends itself to two vastly different beasts, so must the TB. It's the law.
We all know and love the germanium-based TBs, but there's always room for some silicon action, and here it is.
Mic Tester's original SiTB circuit is the raw material for this tweak-fetishist's dream, with some all-important controls placed externally. As well as your normal Vol, Gain and Tone you have complete control over how fat the input cap is, the bias, and there's an optional starve control. Starve and Bias? Isn't that a bit of an overkill? Nope. Try it - you just might like it.
Huge, fat fuzz or splattery, gated dying battery fun - it's all there.
Designed for vertical board-mounted pots, or you can wire up 'normal' ones if you prefer. If you opt for the recommended vertical-mount pots remember they have round shafts, so you'll need knobs that fix with a set screw. Spacing is tight (18.5mm apart), so you'll need small knobs.
Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.
Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.
Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will not take a battery. Knobs are not included.
Builds are only available with full kits including enclosures. Please choose appropriate knobs.
PCB size: 50 x 36mm
Knobs required: 5/6
Direct-Connect compatible (4-way)
