Trip Bender (germanium)

Vintage Germanium Fuzz

Brand new LeeHooker Vintage Pedals series is inspired by the 60's and 70's guitar effects. Our goal here is to bring the sound of these famous Fuzzs pedals to the present.

The collection is made up of Tone Bender MKII series with both germanium and silicon transistors. Classic fuzz '72 Trip with silicon transistors and fuzz '66 Trip v2 with germanium PNP transistors.

The germanium devices have added bias function, which allows to balance the thermal instability of germanium semiconductors. Trip Bender germanium version has a possibility to choose between two modes, simulating the sound with OC81 or OC76 transistors in the circuit.

LeeHooker effects are true handmade custom boutique pedals. All models are made in the Czech Republic.
