Fuzz Pedal Menu
Sola Sound built private label MK II Tone Benders for other companies. These included the Marshall Supa Fuzz and the Vox Tone Bender. Vox would eventually have their Tone Benders built by JEN.
The Sola Sound Tone Bender took on a new shape in 1969 with the Gray MK IV. This was the last Sola Sound Tone Bender of the 60's. The company would soon become Colorsound.
In 1969, the company J.E.I. was formed, and having VOX roots specialized in amplifiers. They did create a series of innovative effect pedals, the Fuzz being one of them.
In the 70's, Colorsound continued to grow. The case styles changed, color was added, and marketing was emphasized. The Supa Tonebender was their flagship pedal.
In the 70's, the company CBS Arbiter released their enhanced fuzz called the Doubler. This device was conceived by the designer of the original Sola Sound Tone Bender.
Carlsbro is primarily an amplifier company, but around 1974 they entered the effect pedal market. Their Fuzz pedal was a true tonebender provided by Colorsound and decked out with the Carlsbro motif.
In the mid 70's, Colorsound was still producing tonebenders for other branded product lines. The English company Barnes & Mullins was one of their many customers.
