The Jerms Switchable Tonebender

Post by redeyeflight » Thu Jul 28, 2011 11:01 pm

I present my new favorite fuzz: The Jerms MK 1.5/II tonebender :crackjam: Loaded with 2 OC-75's and 1 OC-43 built on a shortboard with a footswitch to engage either the MK 1.5 side or the MK II side. The MK 1.5 is warm, cleans up REALLY well and overall sounds VERY close to Jim's original MK 1.5. The MK II side is a nasty, gnarly beast :cthulhu2: that has just an insane amount of sustain and variable amounts of compression depending on the guitars volume knob position. It certainly reminds me of the new DAM/Sola Blue MK II (from memory) and it absolutely NAILS Jim's original Israel MK II to the "T" Killer pedal here and totally versatile and useable in a live situation...just a ton of combinations and it can get loud as shit!! :crackjam: A real winner IMO :dance:

Jim has been talking about making this pedal for a while now and I'm really glad he got around to doing it. It's really nice to have a warm, super-dynamic, crunchy fuzz for rhythm work and then kick the switch and go to a brighter, more compressed and sustainy fuzz thats gainy and nasty. I've only used this a one gig so far but I'm really, really liking it a LOT.... :dance:

Looks pretty great!

Being able to switch between the 1.5 and the 2 is a great idea...I could use one of those :hmm:
