In the realm of rock and roll, few things are as iconic as the fuzz-laden tones that have shaped the sound of generations. From the wooly tweed tones of yesteryears to the gritty growls that define modern rock, fuzz pedals hold a special place in the hearts of guitarists everywhere.

Enter the Warm Audio Warm Bender, a pedal that pays homage to the rich history of rock and roll while delivering an unparalleled fuzz experience.

At the heart of the Warm Audio Warm Bender lies three dedicated, selectable circuits that faithfully recreate two of the most legendary Germanium Tone Bender fuzz tones, along with a modern silicon circuit for added versatility. It’s a tribute to the sounds that have defined the music of artists like Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, and Mick Ronson.

Why settle for one classic Tone Bender when you can have three? The Warm Bender lets you choose between the NOS 76 setting for those “early” Bender tones with cutting highs and clear presence, the NOS 75 setting for legendary riff-worthy fuzz with added bass response, or the silicon setting for a tighter low and top-end response with a smooth distortion-like tone.

But the Warm Bender isn’t just about recreating the past; it’s about pushing the boundaries of what’s possible with fuzz. With controls for level, attack, version, and SAG, you can dial in your perfect tone and even recreate that coveted “dying battery” sound with added touch sensitivity and compression.

Crafted with 100% through-hole construction using NOS Germanium transistors, every Warm Bender pedal is hand-inspected and tested at Warm Audio HQ in Austin, Texas, by real musicians and engineers who share a passion for superior sound.
