So you want a Tone Bender inspired fuzz pedal? Here are a bunch that you really should hear

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

The Sola Sound / Colorsound Tone Bender sits right up there alongside the Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face among the most influential fuzz pedals of all time. There are a whole bunch of modern variants from the original maker – we looked at some here https://youtu.be/UrJDtSolEI0 – but what about the plethora of TB-inspired pedals from other brands?
In this episode, Dan and I run through a selection from a diverse range of names. We use classic single-coil and humbucker guitars – a Strat and a Les Paul – as well as clean and dirty amps so you can get a feel for them. What are our favourites?
Enjoy the episode!
