Boss TB-2W Tone Bender Is Now Available for Pre-Order Leave a comment

Preorders are now open for Boss’ upcoming fuzz collaboration with Sola Sound, the TB-2W Tone Bender.

The TB-2W is a Boss take on the iconic Tone Bender MkII. As the brand narrates on its website:

“To develop the TB-2W, Sola Sound loaned BOSS their prized serial number 500 Tone Bender MK II, which they feel represents the ideal Tone Bender experience. Over a number of months, BOSS engineers carefully evaluated the pedal’s overall circuit at every level. A prime focus was analyzing the unique properties of its germanium transistors, which are key to the pedal’s smooth, musical tone and extreme sensitivity to playing dynamics and guitar volume.”

The stompbox is controllable using Attack and Level dials as well as a three-position voltage selector switch. Each TB-2W comes with elusive germanium transistors “carefully tested for optimum tone.”

Since germanium transistors are notoriously difficult to source, the TB-2W Tone Bender will be available in a limited production run and will set you back $349.99.
