18v power boost with master vol by Stu Castledine its big , it's orange and it's loud

So this is what happens when we run out of Power Boost cases . .

We find a bunch of MKII cases and ask Stu Castledine to work his magic

The result is this stunning 18v Power Boost with master volume and led

I know I've said it before , but when you plug this in it's hard to imagine guitar playing life without it - it is a TONE MACHINE !!!


We don't like to shout about who used this one

It’s great to be involved with yet another great British builder and especially Stu who seems to know this circuit better than anyone on the planet.

The pedal itself needs little introduction - monstrous tone – shimmery glassy treble boost – huge bass boost then easing its way through crunchy overdrive into aggressive nastiness – how can anyone not LOVE that !?
We have used to reconditioned original 60s Vox for the case , then we went through three different screening processes before settling on this one . Mr E Warrior cleaned up and reworked Alan Murray’s original artwork (huge thanks as always) and the rest is down to Stu . . . .
I used my '72 Power Boost as a reference.
The PCB is a copy of the final 18V version with PP3 batteries. (I think the first one was a reverse board, second was the normal way up, but had the 33k in a different position and no terminal for the common battery connection. EW thinks this third version came about with the switch to PP3 batteries, which makes sense).
Pots are sourced from Omeg, custom made. I've gone with a reverse log pot for the Volume. The original ones had a linear pot, but the reverse log gives a better sweep - I think your standard ones have reverse log too?
Transistors are BC184L, as in my original.

Anthony and Steve Macari’s aim is to make the finest fuzz pedals available to mankind using the same honesty and integrity employed by our fathers Larry and Joe who founded the company in 1965.

There are no secrets about out circuits, and no parts that cannot be replaced. Our hope is that none of our products will ever end up in landfill.

We take it as a huge compliment that people copy and clone our products but we do take exception to using our Trade Marks and Product names. If you see ‘Tone Bender’ on a non Sola Sound or licensed product them be sure that it is being used against our express wishes.

The best of the best! Bought and amp and cab from Ant and it came sooner than expected from across the pond. He even had the amp altered free of charge so it would work in the US. Packed perfectly. An A+++ reverb seller
