The II

DIY fuzzbox

The II / Personal project

Pedal style: Tone Bender mkII fuzz

There are no shortcuts to the perfect sound. And it is pretty much impossible to find a great Tone Bender mkII-style fuzz for a decent penny. So I decided to make one myself. A custom paintjob with an electric roman II that mirrors the full-on germanium fuzz, and orange for the legacy of the Sola Sound packaging. I call it The II. The natural conlusion after soldering and painting was to create a fictional boutique brand, with logo and a packaging line. 

Finally I recorded a demo of me trying it out. I hope you like it as much as I do, and don't hesitate to contact me if you're in the pedal making business.
