Hurst designed one of the very first British fuzzboxes, the Tonebender, back in 1965. This is an accurate reproduction of the original metal cased Mk I, endorsed and signed by Gary, and hand-built by JMI in a limited run of 50.
With three Germanium transistors doing the business, this is a real mid-sixties vintage fuzz that hits the tonal spot just right – fat, rich and detailed, with bags of sweet sustain – making you want to turn the knobs up and play.
It’s got that sound, and it’s a collector’s item – invest in one if you can afford it!
PROS: Authentic vintage fuzz sound.
CONS: Expensive. No power adaptor socket. No LED.
