Fuzz Pedals

MKI Fuzz

The MKI Fuzz is as close as possible to recreating the legendary MKI Tone Bender*.  Each part is carefully hand selected and matched to bring you the finest vintage tone.  

Each MKI Fuzz features:

3x germanium transistors - Philips OC75, Texas Instruments 2G308, Texas Instruments 2G378B

1960's CTS or Stackpole 500k & 50k potentiometers

1960's Hunts or Aerovox mouldseal input capacitors

1960's Hunts or Wima .1uf capacitors 

1960's Erie Type 109 & Type 9 / Allen-Bradley resistors 

Vintage style Carling footswitch

Replica wedge enclosure in hammered green / textured black

*Due to the design of this vintage fuzz  circuit, these pedals work best placed first in your signal chain.  These units do not work well with buffers or buffered bypass pedals going into the input.  This will cause the effect to sound thin with a significant volume drop*

 

**These effects can be powered by 9v battery (included) only*

***To preserve battery life, please unplug the input jack after use***

*I have no affiliation with Sola Sound or Marshall Amplification.  I am using their trademarked names only as a reference to the circuits the Supa MKII Fuzz is based on.  To see and learn more about the originators of these amazing fuzz pedals, please visit Macari's Website 

MKI Professional

The MKI Professional is a pedalboard friendly version of my MKI Fuzz, with a few expanded features

These pedals are still 100% vintage & NOS parts, hardwired point-to-point on eyelet board.

 

Added features include a MKI / Zonk Machine switch, 9v dc jack, led on/off indicator & pulldown resistors to eliminate pops when switching 

Each MKI Pro Features:

3x germanium transistors 

   *OC75, 2G308, 2G378B when supplies allow

   *OC71, 2G308, 2G308

1960's CTS or Stackpole 500k & 50K potentiometers

 

Hunts / Sprague Input capacitors

 

NOS ERO KT1801  .1uf capacitors 

NOS Piher & Allen-Bradley resistors 

True-bypass footswitch w/ pulldown resistors

Replica Zonk Machine Knobs

*Due to the design of this vintage fuzz  circuit, these pedals work best placed first in your signal chain.  These units do not work well with buffers or buffered bypass pedals going into the input.  This will cause the effect to sound thin with a significant volume drop*

 

**These effects can be powered by 9v battery (included) or 9v native center dc power supply*

Supa MKII Fuzz

*Available again in August 2023

The Supa MKII Fuzz is my take on both the Sola Sound Tone Bender MKII* and the Marshall Supa Fuzz*.  These pedals represent my favorite combination of component choices and modifications of these two classic fuzz circuits.  

 

Each Supa MKII Fuzz features:

3x Black Glass or TO-1 Vintage & NOS germanium transistors

Vintage CTS, Centralab or Stackpole potentiometers

Philips or Sprague electrolytic capacitors

1960's Wima TFF, Philips Mustard Cap or ERO Foil capacitors

1960's / 70's Piher 1/2 carbon film resistors 

Vintage style Carling footswitch

Handwired on phenolic replica pcb

Daka-Ware control knobs
