The Red Noise Stone Blender is a modern take on the Sola Sound Tone Bender, one of the most famous names in the world of fuzz pedals.
But far from being a one-trick pony, the Stone Blender features a neat 4-way Diode Switch which lets you select one of four different clipping diodes for diverse voicing options:
1N60 (Green) - Purry, germanium overdrive-like fuzz, offering oodles of saturation and crunch.
1N4148 (Red) - Sizzling up top while punching you in the gut, this is the MkIV Sola Sound Tone Bender sound - a classic fuzz tone.
Yellow LED (Yellow) - A loud and aggressive character which adds volume as well as gain and bite.
Blue LED (Blue) - Extremely distorted and high gain in character, this is full-on and in your face. You could say it goes to 11...
Built around NOS Toshiba 2SC2240 transistors, with sturdy Alpha pots and that addictive NOS germanium diode, the Red Noise Stone Blender screams quality and tonal authority.
The innovative De-Clip control adjusts the tonal balance and presence of the mids, enabling you to get your sound sitting perfectly in a busy recording or live scenario - alleviate those mid-scoop issues once and for all!
It can help you increase pick attack, and works wonders with bass guitar (Founder Ariel is a bassist and this pedal is more than capable of some 4-string thunder!).

I'm still working my way through all the sounds, but so far I'm loving them all.
Each time I think I've got a fav sound I flip the diode switch and there's another one. Great value for a four-in-one fuzz pedal!!
