On the MK1 Tonebender, designer Gary Hurst says “The Year was 1965, The place the back room of Musical Exchange, 22 Denmark Street, London guitarists were demanding a new sound from their amplifier, sound with more distortion and sustain, in walked Vic Flick from the John Barry Seven with an original Maestro Fuzz tone, he requested a pedal with more sustain, I built him a new fuzz box , I called it the “ToneBender”, the first batch/production “ToneBender” was housed in a wooden box and cost 14 Guineas, Jeff Beck was one of my first customers and used on many singles including “Heart Full Of Soul””
