I agree the Yardbox sounds great, but doesn't seem really easy to dial in, whether it's the pots or the crazy backwards wiringOriginally posted by Sunsetamps
does anyone out there mod the pe yardbox, I think that pedal is fantastic and could sound slightly better.
Yeah, that one is on my list, I was just seeing what else is out there.Originally posted by drolling
The Fulltone Soulbender's been around a long time, so you don't hear much buzz about it. Tons of useful fuzztones packed in there. It's true-bypass and DOES have an LED, but I always know when it's on. I see them used at a reasonable price all the time. That's how I got mine.
Looks cool! How much did that set you back?Originally posted by Curly
the short answer is probably a used SoulBender
I'm a fan of this type fuzz, so I have a SoulBender, and a PE Yardbox - both good pedals.
I also have a custom built clone on the way:
this is a version of the Sola Sound ToneBender MKII ..
I have a friend on the Seymour Duncan Forum, StratDeluxer, who has done several mods for me, as well as quite a few others on the forum - mostly wahs and ODs. As you can tell, he does excellent, neat work, works quickly, and his mods are affordable. He also tunes his work by ear, switching out parts till it's just right.
I asked if he'd build me a ToneBender, got his list of parts, and he put it together. I'm looking forward to getting it in the next couple of days and doing a taste test.
electronically theres no difference, the Bent comes in a larger box- I emailed Bob whne I saw a bent for sale a few weeks ago. I have a BOU, Killer pedal-Bob makes great stompers.Originally posted by RickB
Try and find a used BENT made by Bob McBroom. If not, check out his regular production model - Bender Over Under.
