The Red Sam is an exacting replica of a particular Tone Bender MKI given away as a prize in a raffle back in the 1960s. I tune these units for huge sustain and the perfect balance between searing distortion and crisp attack all through the first 50% of the attack knob, while the latter 50% over-biases the second transistor resulting in increasingly compressed and blooming fuzz tones. All the classic sounds of a perfect MKI are in here.
Built with true point-to-point architecture using only the best NOS American and British components on hand-prepared phenolic board. 

-Hammond 1590P1 enclosure in a classic hammered finish
-Carefully matched trio of NOS 1960s British germanium transistors
-Davies Bakelite USA chicken-head knobs
-Sprague USA, and HUNTS UK capacitors
-AB carbon composition resistors
-Carling, Cliff UK hardware
