    Looking for a good silicon tonebender. Normally, I'd just build my own but I just don't feel like sourcing the parts I don't have or drilling enclosures. Basically, I'm looking for a strong, raunchy, Si MkII type. Whatchoo got?

    John at basic Audio specialises in Silicon fuzz, and he's much loved here for a good reason. In his production line up - Scarab Deluxe, Gnarly, Zonk - all variants of the Tonebender fuzz with silicone. He could custom make you one to suit your goals as well.

    I would get ahold of Tommy @ Lumpys Tone Shop or John Lyons at Basic Audio.

    Basic Audio Scarab Deluxe will be all you need for what you are looking for.

    There's a pedal called the Rosie that is a silicon based tonebender.
