The Greuter Star Bender is modelled after a superior sounding Tonebender Mk3 from 1973 to deliver the classic British Fuzz sounds of the 60’s and 70’s.
A three Germanium Transistor Fuzz with a Tone Control which ranges from thin aggressive over thick fuzz all the way to a huge low end with a raunchy midrange. With the Bias control you can dial in your favourite fuzz sound from Velcro fuzz, over endless smooth sustains, to gated fuzz.
Hand-built in Switzerland, the Russian germanium transistors are carefully selected and matched with every pedal fine-tuned by ear. The Starbender comes in a pedalboard-friendly enclosure with top jacks from Switchcraft!
It has a voltage inverter so it can be powered by typical negative ground power supply (9V DC, centre negative). No batteries - wired for True Bypass.
This pedal performs best when it’s the first in the signal chain, just after the guitar. It doesn’t like buffers. But it likes overdriven tube amps and the overdrive pedals to team up with!
