Lovepedal Introduces the Bonetender Fuzz

The Bonetender is Lovepedal’s take on the classic 3-transistor fuzz circuit.

White Lake, MI (January 8, 2014) -- Pursuing a refreshing less-is-more approach, Lovepedal has unleashed the Bonetender fuzz, the company’s newest mini-enclosure pedal.

Brandishing two knobs and a pugnacious attitude, the Bonetender is Lovepedal’s take on the classic 3-transistor fuzz circuit that helped define the 1960s British invasion sound (think: Jeff Beck, Mick Ronson and Jimmy Page).

Although it sports just two knobs, this little monster offers a ton of sonic versatility. The Bonetender’s tones range from mildly woolly to a soaring tidal wave of sustain…and everything in between.

With the gain knob set at around 9 o’clock, you get a creamy, broken up, Blackface Bassman. Set the gain at 1 o’clock and you're playing Suffragette City. With gain maxed out, you're in muff-a-licious territory – you practically need an hourglass to time how long it takes for the sustain to finally stop!

The Bonetender also stacks and plays very well with other overdrives and various dirt boxes. It goes especially well with a Lovepedal OD 11 after it.


  • Two knobs to control Level and Gain
  • A real-estate saving, pedalboard-friendly mini-enclosure
  • Hand-built in the USA with love and care
  • True bypass on/off switch
  • 9-volt standard DC input

The Bonetender carries a suggested retail price of $159.95.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
