Orders & Deliveries FAQ

The Formula B Mini Bender Combo is what every Tone Bender fan desires: a recreation of two of its most famous circuits, the Mk 1.5 and Mk II. 

Featuring three germanium transistors, you can toggle between the two modes.

What's The Difference Between "Mk 1.5" & "Pro II" Modes?

The first Mk 1.5 Tone Benders were released in 1965. Featuring 2 Mullard OC75 transistors, the circuit is said to have inspired the first Arbiter Fuzz Faces, which arrived on the market in 1966.

The Mk II Pro upgraded the circuit to 3 Mullard OC75 or OC81D transistors. One of the most desirable versions of the Tone Bender, it's known for its glorious fuzz tones and excellent response to a guitar's volume pot.

Mini Bender Combo Circuit

The Mini Bender Combo uses 3 NOS Soviet germanium transistors. "With these, you can clean up the sound with the volume of the guitar with zero noise," Marco tells me. He also says that they are better than the Mullard OC75s used by other builders: "The OC75 that all are using are new (no Mullard NOS)." 

The Mini Bender Combo incudes a built in voltage inverter to feed power to the germanium transistors, avoiding the need for a positive-ground power supply like the originals required, which means you can share a power supply with other pedals with no issues.
