The Super Electric Continental is a re-creation of the classic Vox Tone Bender fuzz which uses two carefully selected germanium transistors (OC42 & OC76). It's based on an original 1967 grey Vox Tone Bender (see pic), which I used as a reference.
The original is a particularly good sounding unit, nicely balanced between smooth and raunchy and perfectly biased, with just enough of the raspyness these pedals are famous for without it being over-bearing.

Care was taken in terms of transistor gain selection, in order to perfectly match the original's particular tonal characteristics. The Continental is also fit with a 2-way tone switch which allows for more low end if required. There's also a useful battery on/off switch, so the input jack can be left plugged in without draining the battery. Like the original, it's powered by a 9v battery only with no LED.

Please note that the original Vox Tone Bender pictured is not for sale and is shown for reference only.
