Tonebender
« on: November 24, 2022, 10:34:15 AM »
Hello, i want to build a tonebender which might give me something close to a Mick Ronson tone. Can anyone point me in the direction of a kit to build?

Thanks

Tom

Hi Tom, it sounds like you're asking about a Tone Bender Mark 1 (rather than Mark 1.5, Mark 2, etc!) and a full kit, not just the circuit board.  If so: if you're in the EU, there's a full kit at https://www.musikding.de/Tone-Vendor-MkI-kit.  In the UK, there's a silicon (not germanium) transistor kit at https://www.jedspeds.co.uk/product-page/silicon-tone-bender . In the US, there's an updated and modified gemanium transistor kit at https://www.primofxllc.com/product-page/moody-sounds-bjf-bone-bender1kit
