Fuzz Unit #2 (P2P Tone Bender MK II)

  • Sale
  • Regular price $199.99


Fuzz Unit - TB2 is our hand wired point to point version of the venerable Tone Bender MKii circuit tuned for a bit more sustain and output volume. Many consider it the finest example of vinatge germanium style fuzz, and after playing one, it's hard to argue them wrong!

The Fuzz Unit - TB2 employs 3 NOS NPN germanium transistors hand selected for gain and leakage to ensure a complex and harmonically rich fuzz sound that's simple to power.  Carbon composition resistors, high quality Spague / Vishay axial capacitors, and a beefed up power filtering section helps keep the sound classic and noise floor low.  Carefully hand soldered into a compact pedalboard friendly enclosure sporting top mounted jacks and an internal 9 volt battery option, this fire breathing fuzz is rock ready just about anywhere you take it.

Just two controls; LEVEL  is controlled by the leftmost knob and the one on the right is ATTACK, which controls the gain / fuzz sustain. Dialed to the left yields a gutteral mid focused bark with no gating. Cranking it right reveals a sweet, singing fuzz tone with plenty of sustain and upper frequency content.
