The Tone Bender was designed by Gary Hurst in the early sixties. It was based on the design of the Gibson Maestro Fuzz (as used by Keith Richards on 'Satisfaction' by the rolling stones). Gary designed fuzz pedals for most of the British amplifier companies around at the time as well as his own brands 'Colorsound' and 'Sola Sound'. The GMR BC Bender is based on the Vox Tone Bender circuit which to Tone Bender fans is known as the "MK1.5". The circuit was also manufactured for Dallas Arbiter under the name 'Rangemaster Fuzzbug' and was the basis of the circuit design for the much better known 'Fuzz Face' also made by Dallas Arbiter.

Essentially the difference between the Fuzz Face and GMR BC Bender is that the BC Bender works equally well with Humbucker/P90 loaded guitars as it does with Single Coil Fender type pickups.
