Tonebender Fuzz Mk II

I play bass guitar.  It’s a gift to myself, although I wish I had more time to practice and play. 

That said, a while ago I got some effects pedals – a really cool DOD FX-72 Stereo Bass Flanger, a Digitech Bass Synth Wah, and a lame but cheap overdrive pedal.   Then, I found this website –  How cool – build your own effects pedals.  I bought a whole bunch of them.  Then, they sat on my shelf for a few years, collecting dust. 

Until now. 

For reasons I can’t explain, I grabbed my soldering iron and put teh first one together last week.  Way, way freaking cool.  Its a clone of the Solasound Tonebender Fuzz.  And, just as promised, it gives the bass a ton of thick wooly fuzz while retaining a lot of low end.  It will be a great toy to play with. Oh, and I will eventually paint the enclosure as well.
