Doom Bender mk1

Doom Bender (a louder more aggressive version of the Tone Bender mk1 circuit) in a gold hammerite prism wedge style enclosure from Done in the style of the original 1965 mk1s with the circuit made up of the components mounted directly to Phenolic board. The clearcoated decal labelling also echos the original mk1 look.

fy-2 testimonial.

Just got this nice email from a customer I made an FY-2 for a while ago - "Just wanted to drop you a quick line about the FY-2 you built for me. It has, without a doubt, become my "go to" fuzz pedal. Every boost I put in front of it sounds great, every modulation effect I put behind it sounds great, and it just flat sounds great directly into my tube amp. I have several other fuzz pedals, but every time I have an idea for a sound I want or if I just want to wank around, I end up reaching for the FY-2. Likewise, whatever I'm running through it--tape loops, synthesizers, my old reverb spring--the FY-2 just takes it to another dimension. Fantastic!"

Here's a sneak preview of the fz-1 I have been working on with the new prism 1 case.  Going to do some labelling tomorrow, looks cool even without any labels!
