In April of 1965, a new device changed rock 'n' roll forever. From the back workbench of Macari's Musical Exchange on Denmark Street in London, Gary Hurst invented the Sola Sound Tonebender fuzz. Building on the foundation of the American-made 1962 Maestro Fuzz Tone, Gary expanded what fuzz could do and gave a new sound to the thriving London music scene. Starting with his very first prototype made in a simple wooden box (April 1965) to the many other official Sola Sound versions like the MKI (Sept 1965), MK2 (Mid 1966), MK3/MK4 (Feb 1970), etc., the Tonebender has evolved, just like the music that it helped create.
The JHS Bender is an attempt to recreate the most prized Tonebender in Josh Scott's (Owner at JHS) collection: Scott's 1973 MK3 Silver/Orange "Onomatopoeia" version. This version has three very special germanium transistors, tons of mojo, and fifty plus years of experience, but it is finicky and it doesn't always do what you want it to do. Could JHS replicate this pedal sonically? Could JHS capture what it's all about, but in a way that is more consistent, dependable, and easy to manufacture? Yes. The end result is a pedal that gives you the touch, feel, and response of the vintage germanium fuzz but with accuracy and consistency of carefully chosen modern silicon transistors.
