The Bone Bender 1.5 is a germanium Sola Tone Bender clone and then some. We use select germanium transistors to get you a blast from the past great sounding pedal.
The Bone Bender 1.5 has plenty of modern conveniences but keeps that vintage tone on tap. Some of these include using a technique to stabilize the transistors from temperature changes that commonly plague stock/clone germanium Fuzz pedals. This technique does not compromise your tone whatsoever and only keeps its tone going during gigs that would leave common germanium fuzzes dead. What's even cooler is there's no need for a trimpot or external 'bias' pot to constantly adjust due to temperature changes. We consider the Bone Bender to be the best made two transistor bender on the market bar none.
With the new KILL control you can bend the Bone Bender to give a gain boost, twist it to get mosquito like splat of the early fuzzes, everything in between. And of course the original unadulterated stock Bone Bender tone. Lots of tones to be had with the new Bone Bender 1.5.
Another big difference between our pedal and the original (including clones) is ours allows you to use the standard 9VDC AC adaptors (positive tip) that are out there without nasty ‘motor-boating’ or EMI/RFI that one can get by modding the original circuit to use AC adaptors. This allows you to use common power boxes, even ones with ‘voltage sag’ abilities to get that ‘dead battery’ tone that can only be had from a germanium Fuzz pedal. The originals do not have AC adaptor jacks.
As with all Baja Tech Custom pedals the Bone Bender 1.5 is wired for true bypass so as to not “suck” your tone when off.
Bone Bender 1.5 is painted with a heavy duty "Bone White" powder coat finish to withstand the day to day rigors of the road.
Attack, Level controls. The Bone Bender 1.5 comes stock with a On/Off LED indicator and AC jack. Input/Output Jacks. Requires 1 9VDC battery (included) or positive tip (Boss type supply, not included) 9VDC power supply.
