Fuzz Bender

A Modern Fuzz Sound

The Fuzz Bender from Keeley Electronics is the kind of modern fuzz we all love to hear. A reinvention of the Sola Sound Tone-Bender MKIII, this pedal brings something truly original to the table.
How, you ask?

Keeley Electronics Are Absolute Game Changers

If you’ve ever heard of Keeley Electronics, then you’ll know that this company – and, in particular, its founder Robert Keeley – are responsible for some huge developments in pedal technology. Founded in 2001, the company have spent over twenty years building customer-modded effects units, and in that time they’ve been responsible for some fantastic pedals like the Dark Side, the Hydra, and the Luna Overdrive.
They may only be a small company, but, in many ways, they’re at the cutting edge of modern pedal developments.

What Makes the Fuzz Bender So Special?

Fuzzes tend to fall into one of two camps, silicon and germanium. While the former is, generally speaking, a more modern sound with lots of punch to it, the latter is often found in classic fuzzes and is slightly softer than its aggressive silicon cousin.
Robert Keeley has decided to have his cake and eat it too.
By using 3 transistors, Keeley Electronics have combined the benefits of silicone and germanium to create a pedal with a unique and original sound. Furthermore, by incorporating an active EQ circuit, the Fuzz Bender offers insane new levels of intensity while also allowing a level of control over the Fuzz’s bias.
The Fuzz Bender really is one of the most interesting boutique pedals on the market today.
