There is an error with the description.

It currently says:
The ‘Tone master’ is our recreation of the highly regarded and sought after Vox tone bender MK2 professional. As far as delivery of amazing fuzz tone the Tone master is very hard to beat and has a unique sound & voicing of it’s own. Powered by an alkaline PP3 9v battery it uses two NOS OC75 transistors which give it a different voicing and tone to the fuzz face. The tone is a unique fuzz tone and some say very tube sounding, but it's not too harsh.


The quantity and codes of the transistors are incorrect. It's actually three x OC84s.

Below is the correct, official product description text:

The Tone Master MK2 is our recreation of the highly regarded and sought after Tone Bender MKII Professional from 1966. It was used by countless guitarists such as Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton during his days with Cream, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page throughout his career, so it certainly has a great pedigree. But as far as delivery of amazing fuzz tone and sustain, the Tone master is unbeatable and really is a phenomenal sounding fuzz pedal. We took the original circuit from 1966 and spent some time tweaking it until we were happy that we had come up with the best sounding fuzz circuit possible. Powered by a zinc chloride PP3 9v battery it uses three NOS Mullard OC84 Germanium transistors which have been especially selected & tested for gain and leakage. The Mullard transistors give it a different voicing and tone to the Fuzz Face which was of course hugely popular at the same time due to Jimi Hendrix, who was busy re-writing the book on great guitar tone and how to use it to devastating effect. The advantage that the original Tone Bender had was that the transistors were less prone to fluctuation during a gig unlike the very temperamental fuzz face. So how does it sound? The tone is unique and phenomenal, and some say very tube sounding, but it's not too harsh and a very smooth sounding tone. Crank one of these through a tube amp for instant 'whole lotta love'. Even with the 'attack' control turned right up it to maximum, it will push your amp into overdrive and give it a superb and unbeatable sustain, with lush overtones and harmonics. In fact it sounds like the perfect cross between fuzz and a distortion pedal in many applications.
