Magnetic Effects Introduces the Solar Bender

A Tone Bender-style fuzz with modern features.

London, England (June 20,2016) -- Magnetic Effects are pleased to release the Solar Bender V2.

Designed to capture the sonic flavour of a MKII Fuzz, the Solar Bender offers smooth, saturated fuzz tones with excellent harmonic overtones, sustain and an organic midrange response.

Temperature stability, buffer friendly response, and standard 9V DC power operation make the pedal easy to use on stage and in the studio while top mounted jacks provide space saving convenience on a pedalboard.

Level, attack, bias and tone controls provide plenty of scope for tonal variety. Carefully selected and tested germanium and silicon transistors are used to ensure an authentic vintage-style fabulous fuzz tone.
