Help with a vintage stompbox
Hi Guys,

I've been redirected here from the Pit as peeps should know a bit more!

The story so far: I have been playing guitar for about 20 years in bands on and off and have accumulated and sold lots of kit. One of these I had totally forgotten until clearing out before my impending marriage and ultimate 'grown-up-transition-clearout.'

This was given to me by a family friend a long time ago and has never really been used as its sound was not the one I was after.

It is a (Solasound) Colorsound Jumbo Tonebender Fuzz pedal dated 197? (the ink is a bit faded!). It's completely original and is in very good condition considering its age.

I am sadly going to have to part with it but I have no idea what it is worth and don't want to make a massive mistake and I want it to go to someone who will love it.

If anyone could help me out or give me more info that would be great.

Cheers in advance,

That pedal sold for almost $400 US on ebay. The ad has a bunch of info about it as well.

I'd say if it's in good working condition and it doesn't look too beat up (it doesn't in the pics), you should get somewhere around $325-$400 (about 200 to 250 GBP)

oooh very nice. looks like it's in killer condition, too.

I don't know anything about how much it's worth or anything like that, though :( I thought i'd found a link with tonebender info that might help but it stopped just before the sola sound ones :haha

willford135 01-07-2013 03:05 PM seems they re-issued them and they retailed at 180 ish so a vintage one would be more I guess? I think I will list it on eBay and hope that people who know they stuff help get a price it deserves.

Cheers guys! Good job. Sad to see it go really. I've also got a far less sexy BOSS DD-3 Digital Delay going too but that's far less fun!
