PUTB - PUMP'D UP TONE BENDER - Want this in a kit? Click HERE

Best Germanium Tonebender uses Charge Pump

The Classic Tonebender with a modern twist

Pump'd Up means you can use it with other negative-ground pedals

Please be sure to read the build documentation for the correct pin placement depending on whether you use the top side or the bottom side for mounting the transistors

Because PNP fuzzes are positive-ground circuits, they must have a separate power supply from the rest of the effects in a chain. To overcome this limitation, a charge pump chip has been integrated to allow this board to be powered by the same source as all of your other effects. This is great for daisy-chained pedal boards, as well as integrating this into an enclosure with other effects circuits

This compact board is designed to easily accommodate germanium transistors up to a TO-5 package size, which covers the majority of available Ge transistor models available today

Some vintage transistors may introduce high-end hiss. Optional modifications in this layout provide a filter which eliminate this hiss while retaining that vintage tone and clarity, even on the highest guitar notes

Modern features such as reverse-polarity protection diode, pull-down resistor, and biasing trimmer pot have been added
