Vox | V-828 Tone Bender
V828 Tone Bender
- No Alternate Versions Listed
The Vox Tone Bender (model no. V828 in Vox’s 1966 US price list) is based on the same circuit topology as the MK1.5 version. It was made for Thomas Organ Co. by the Jen company in Italy. This circuit uses different component values and transistor types making it different in tone and behavior. It used a PCB instead of the UK built MK1.5 which used strip board. Different transistor and capacitor setups have been used over the years. Earlier variants are fuller sounding, while later ones are rather bright and cutting.
It is assumed that these were initially made for the US market, while the Sola Sound made units were distributed in the UK and Europe.
JEN used the enclosures and circuit boards to make Fuzz for other companies such as Elka, Gretsch and Luxor. They also released it under their own name of JEN and used the enclosure for a range of other effects.
