    I'm not simpatico with most of the predilections on here either. What are you looking at a Tonebender for if you're not into fuzz?


    it is a type of fuzz that I haven't tried yet, Fuzzface, Big Muff no dice....I have an opportunity to get a Throbak cheap....

      You might wanna look at the Analogman AstroTone Fuzz too - it's killer and is perfectly suited for a humbucker + combo amp set-up like you've got. Not a ton of gain, really great Tone control, pretty much impossible to get a bad sound out of it.

      It is similar to a Treble Booster except it doesn't have as prominent a midrange bump to it.

      Every try a Skreddy Screw Driver? That's one you should look at too I think.

        Oh word. I feel like if you didn't like a fuzz face you might not like a tone bender. They're somewhat similar.

        Maybe you could look into a Germ4 Big Muff, which isn't even a Big Muff... it's a really nice textured overdrive/distortion thing. Sounds cool, is cheap, a lot of people like it.

            any threads where erksin talks about gear is never good for my bank account. The man has good taste.

              Eh - I rarely buy anything over $200 when it comes to pedals, I think the most I've ever paid was $300 for the HBOD but I've used it constantly for the past 5 years so it's more than paid for itself. **************** I haven't paid more than $500 for an amp since 1994!

                Tonebenders are the bee's knees. I'm planning on making a few when I get my parts in. I've also owned a Monsterpiece MKII and a MKIII. Great Tonebender pedals and you can adjust the character with the input bias so make it more of a fuzzy overdrive. Don't know if he still makes those, might have to go used.
                Guitars: PRS, Fender, Gibson, Epi
                Pedals: Octophant, Wilson, Danelectro, Monsterpiece, Way Huge, Custom, Line 6
                Amps: Egnater, Ampeg

                Good deals (70+!)

                  both of my amps were less than $200.....
