Supa Tonebender (1974)

A Supa beast! 

Man, what is there in these vintage pedals that make them sound so good?! First, note on the Colorsound (Sola Sound) Supa Tonebender and we were blown away by a powerful and organic fuzz tone. Believe it or not, Sola Sound built the Supa Tonebender as a clone of EHX’s 1973 notorious Ram’s Head Big Muff. It seems their goal was to build an exact clone but in the end, they modified the circuit a bit.

Some websites claim that Jimmy Page used the Supa Tonebender, we think he only used the previous Sola Sound Tonebender versions from the late ’60s. One notable guitar player that did use the Colorsound Supa Tonebender is Steve Hackett from Genesis who apparently had a lot of fun using this unit.
