The Zonk Machine is an early variation of the much famed MkI Tonebender that started the wave of british made fuzz boxes in the sixties.
This is a remake of the classic MkI John Hornby Skewes Zonk Machine that features handwired construction and three germanium transistors. The sound differs from the classic Solasound MkI Tonebender - the Zonk is brighter, has less gain and has a more spitty attack along with a subtle octavia style effect due to the biasing of the unit.
The result is a very unique fuzz tone that sticks out from the classic while still being a classic in its own right. A must have for any fuzz fan!
