The DS Custom Blender was born to popular demand, to get back one of the rarest and most distinctive pedals in Fuzz history. The original Blender got famous due to popular users like Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine.
For the Blender we auditioned quite a few transistors and diodes to find the ones which perform optimally. As for diodes we use some NOS Soviet Germanium diodes, which (as the transistors) hand select and match. https://www.ds-custom.net/
