Here is a vintage 1970 Fender Blender electric guitar fuzz/effects pedal. This particular example, serial number 1632, is in very excellent all original condition and includes a non-original indestructo cardboard box. Aptly named the Fender Blender, this unique and extreme fuzz sounds more like a violent machine than organic speaker distortion. Used by both Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) and Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine) to create intense noise, it also produces that famous Hendrix Octavia octave fuzz rather accurately. Having recently been reissued, nothing comes close to this original, so take advantage of this chance to grab a beautiful original example!
