Tonebender MK1.5 (1966)

Rare As Rare Can Be

1.5 may not be the correct term for this pedal but it’s the one we all use so lets go with it. These weren’t just made between the 1 and the 2 how ever they are very limited and were not part of the main range. The biggest difference of the 1.5 is unlike the 1 and the 2 which have three transistors this has only two which makes it much more like a fuzz face circuit than a traditional Tonebender.

As a result these fetch a very high price on the pedal market and are the subject of many Tonebender clones.
