    Its a BSM fuzz, which if I recall correctly is a rebadged Colorsound Tonebender, the MKIII glam-era version. Also bear in mind he run it through a Mu-Tron and direct into a tube pre on the board.

    Cool fuzz! I thought there was a Fender Blender in the video?

    Maybe! I thought there was a Big Muff Deluxe in the vid as well. Probably just for show!

    An Analogman version of this pedal would be ideal:cool:

    Love your work!!!

    The studio version shows what looks like a Big Muff in the video, but the live version you catch a brief glipse of the orange monster on floor.

    Some people call B&M "3D Big Muff" ;)

    I had SonicVI replica and it's a really great fuzz. It works excellent with wah!

    fix'd :)

    Unfortunately I'm all sold out, but like jkranitz said, a couple have come up on the DAM board recently. The circuit is the same as the Jumbo Tone Bender, NOT the MK3, unless you mean the silicon Vox MKIII which is the same, but not the Sola Sound germanium MK3's. Any Big Muff can also be modified to the Jumbo circuit btw. I've done it with the Tonepad layout and EHX NYC reissue.

    I've had three of em(only have two now).

    These are excellent boxes, grab one if you can find em. They pop up regular between D*A*M forum members(which is where they are offered by Daniel new), you may wanna lurk there for one every once in a while, but they don't sit around long before being boughted:

    ^ Yep, if I remember correctly there is one or two right now for sale.

    My guitarist uses Champion Fuzz Unit as his main - and only one - dirt box. You can set it very low or very high for oldschool tones - very versatile fuzz.
