  • Based on the venerable Tone Bender MkI
  • Sounds from gated velcro splatter, to “Satisfaction” buzz, right up to soaring full-bodied singing, sustaining fuzz
  • Cuts through in any mix – this sound will not get lost
  • Uses three hand picked and tested NOS germanium transistors – usually Mil-spec CV7351 and 2N1304 sourced from a former Royal Navy Storage Depot
  • True bypass
  • Power from 9V battery or Boss™ style centre negative power supply
  • Can be daisy chained with modern pedals
  • ‘More’ control dictates the output level, or volume of the pedal.
  • ‘Sore’ controls the amount of sizzle and sustain.
  • ‘Soar’ control is similar to the MkI Tone Bender’s ‘Attack’ control. Dial this down as well as your guitar’s volume control for a more gated, splatty fuzz verging on velcro. Dial up for a more full and rich fuzz.

The De Sade Fuzz is an old school fuzz box based on the first version Tone Bender, commonly known as the Tone Bender Mk1 or MkI.

This germanium fuzz produces a sound rich in harmonics and upper mid frequency punch, giving a fantastic, cutting push to your tone.

The ‘Sore’ and ‘Soar’ controls are highly interactive, allowing you to get sounds from gated, velcro splutter, up to a sustaining, powerful kick in the guts that will not get lost in the mix.

While based on a 50 year old vintage design, the De Sade benefits from some new enhancements. Using NPN germanium transistors in a modern style negative ground circuit means it plays nice with your other pedals and any 9V (Boss™ style) power supply.

Use of shielded cable, RF and power filtering, and individually tested and auditioned transistors ensures no idle noise. These really are surprisingly quiet when idling.

Each De Sade Fuzz is hand built into a super-durable powder coated enclosure with raised print graphic.
