Warm Audio Warm Bender Fuzz Guitar Effect Pedal

Brand: Warm Audio
SKU: WAR-BEND

$309.00

From smooth, woolly tweed tones to riff-worthy growls and grit, the Warm Audio Warm Bender delivers the ultimate Tone Bender-style fuzz experience in one pedal. The Warm Audio Warm Bender features three selectable dedicated circuits that deliver exactly two of the most iconic Germanium Tone Bender fuzz tones, as well as additional advanced silicon circuitry. Many of the legendary guitar tracks by artists such as Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and Pete Townshend were created using the iconic British vendor fuzz, two of the most popular versions of the iconic British Bender fuzz sound. There’s a heated debate as to which vendor’s fuzz tone is the most iconic, but why choose one when you can have both on your board?

Description

Two Vintage Benders + A Silicon Version
Why choose one classic Tone Bender when you can have three? Choose between the NOS 76 (1X OC76 & 1X SFT337 transistors) setting for the “early” Bender tones with cutting highs, clear presence and drive that cleans up beautifully. For legendary riff-worthy fuzz with added bass response, the NOS 75 (3X OC75 transistors) setting delivers that Mark II Professional-style Bender fuzz tone. To hear the Bender sound with a tighter low and top end response, smooth distortion-like tone, use the 3-transistor topology Silicon setting. The added SAG control starves the voltage to create that “dying battery” tone with added touch-sensitivity and compression. Warm Bender is made with 100% through-hole construction using NOS Germanium transistors and every pedal is hand inspected and tested at Warm Audio HQ in Austin Texas by real musicians and engineers with a passion for superior sound.

Tested, Tested, Then Tested Again
Not only are the transistors tested at the supplier level against datasheet specifications (pictured above), but the transistors are again tested for leakage and HFE (Hybrid Forward Exchange- aka “Gain” test) at the factory-level prior to the pedal build. If a transistor doesn’t meet our additional in-house spec tolerances they are thrown away, end of story. Warm Audio requires the specs of each model number to sit within particular ranges to ensure each transistor works seamlessly and quietly within the Warm Bender circuit. And finally, we test 100% of the final Warm Benders that arrive at our HQ in Texas for any audible noise and complete functionality to ensure the circuit is working properly and delivering iconic Bender-style tones.

The reality is that NOS stock is inevitably finite. And while we are constantly on the hunt for trusted suppliers, we are thrilled to offer our Warm Bender for a true revival of vintage tone, while we can!
