Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

This auction is for a faceless fx Marquis Fuzz, with the graphic for the enclosure able to be completely personalised by the auction winner. You'll work with Tim via email to get the pedal looking exactly as you'd like.

The circuit itself will be a Marquis Fuzz (based on the Mk1 Tone Bender). The graphic and look of the pedal will be totally unique!

Info about the Marquis Fuzz -

The Marquis 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 Marquis 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䋢 style) power supply. Use of shielded cable, RF and power filtering, and individually tested and auditioned transistors ensures a minimum of idle noise. These really are surprisingly quiet when idling.


The Marquis Fuzz:
- 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 Mullard/Philips OC141
- True bypass
- Power from 9V battery or Boss䋢 style centre negative power supply
- Can be daisy chained with modern pedals

Controls:
'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.

Due to the personalised nature of this pedal, it won't be ready for delivery immediately, but you can begin working on it with Tim as soon as the auction ends. The pedal should be ready and delivered anywhere in the world within 2 or 3 weeks (conservative estimate).
