    Great Tonebender Style Pedal

    I have tried more than a few Tonebender style pedals and this one is by far the best one I have found. I have never had any complaints with any Fulltone gear. Everything they make is a high quality product that's both great for the ameature and professional musician. If you like the old British Invasion sounds then this is a great pedal especially when paired with a British style amp and a Tele. Of course Sweetwater is fantastic as always!

    MK-III and MORE- Perfection!

    This is THE ultimate fuzz pedal. Admittedly, I am not an expert on fuzzes, but this one is supposed to be like an MK-III type, I guess. It has ridiculous sustain, and crazy fuzz sounds. Once I plugged it in, I couldn't stop playing it for several hours. Infinitely tweak-able, it has the full range of fuzz sounds with the reliability and smoothness of the OCD. Just really ridiculously well made-reminds me of my Soldano for quality level-made in the USA.
    Works great with a battery. Thankfully, it has built-in "polarity protection," so if you plug in the wrong adapter, it just won't work and won't fry itself like regular fuzzes with reverse polarity would. The reverse polarity adapters DO NOT WORK, and won't work in the same power line, either- they will hum loudly. My only minor issue is that the FPS power adapter should be included. Anyone selling this product should make it clear that without the FPS, this thing won't plug in with anything else (although the manual says Voodoo labs is ok). Small issue to resolve for another 25 bucks, which makes it a $185 pedal that is STILL worth it. My second Fulltone pedal, and surely won't be my last- the OCD blew me away, too! Love the high level of service at Sweetwater, and if I had taken a moment to chat with my service person, he no doubt would have told me about the minor power adapter issue. I like that the staff are musicians, and I'll be back in the future.

    A most excellent 3-knob bender

    It doesn't matter how you set it, you will get a good sound. Start off with all knobs at noon. At up to about 2 o'clock on the dirt, the pedal is extremely sensitive to your guitar volume. Even with tone fully counterclockwise, the treble is not harsh. At full clockwise, you get a smooth sustain that is usable in a band setting, not muddy crap. Buy the power supply for it, as it sounds better like that than with battery power. The build quality is obvious the moment you pick it up. Comes with a cool sticker, battery, instruction/info sheet, and nicely packaged. Sounds absolutely glorious between an SG and a Vox. This should end your search for a Tonebender!

    70's Fuzz

    My overdrives (Tube-Screamer, Lovepedal Kalamazoo) give great crunch from my Strat through a Vibrolux, but the Soul-Bender delivers fuzz and dirt, plain and simple. This is the way to channel classic fuzz tunes (No Time - The Guess Who, for example). Very sturdy, well-made, the only downside being it doesn't work with standard 9v power supplies (the germaniums need reverse polarity), but that's hardly a problem.
