About This Listing

Insanely rare fuzz (Tone Bender), wah and volume in one pedal - designed by "the Fuzzman" legend Gary Hurst. Made in the UK (or Italy) before he disappeared for many years.
As 70s as it can get: (solid strong) plastic shell/housing with a heavy steel metal base plate. These came in white or black, this one MIGHT have repainted (or not, not sure).

Works and sounds BRUTAL! I cleaned all the pots with DeoxIt, but the wah pot still crackles a bit and might need to be professionally cleaned or replaced.
The fuzz alone is mighty (and) incredible, the wah is nice and quacky (imagine a Colorsound) - but both together it gets weird almost synthy-like, at times. Pretty darn original in any case!

The in- and output jacks have been reversed, otherwise I believe it to be all original. See pics, and please ask if you need to see or know anything else.
Due to shape and age it's sold as is. But other than the pot mentioned above it is fully functional... and RARE AS HELL!!!

PS: Due to the pandemic and affected postal service, shipping to the US is currently more complicated/expensive... sorry that's not my fault.

Please check my other items, too!
