Boss TB-2W Tone Bender

BOSS and Sola Sound come together to bring you the TB-2W Tone Bender; an authentic recreation of the iconic Tone Bender MK II fuzz pedal used by the best guitarists of all time. Renowned for its bold, rich voice and smooth sustain, these sounds are embedded in the sounds of rock music history. Available in a limited edition run, the TB-2W boasts rare germanium transistors carefully tested; a three-way voltage selector; selectable true/buffered bypass operation; as we;; as a refined circuit for ultra-consistent performance!

Adjustable Voltage for a Range of Tones

The original Tone Bender was designed to run on a 9-volt zinc-carbon battery. Now, the TB-2W features an adjustable voltage circuit. Allowing you to easily replicate these changes at the flick of a switch. Using the three-way Battery selector, you can instantly change the response of the pedal whether you’re powering it from a modern alkaline battery or an external power supply.

So, use the 9V setting and you’ll get the sound of a brand new battery and the benchmark Tone Bender response. While the 7V setting gives the effect of a slightly depleted battery with a unique gain character favoured by Tone Bender fans. You can also take things in the other direction with the 12V setting offering expanded dynamic range that wouldn’t have been possible with the original.

Selectable Output Modes

Another great addition to the TB-2W is its two output modes; easily selectable using the switch at the top of the pedal. Thru mode is best for a vintage pedal experience. While Buffer mode engages the same high-quality output buffer circuit in all Waza Craft pedals. In any case, you’re going to get the best performance when using the TB-2W as the first pedal in the signal chain, with no buffered signal in-between. So your pedal will fully interact with your guitars pickup for the magical interactive response that fuzz players love.
