Professional MKI Player Special


The LIC Pedals Professional MK1 is a faithful recreation of the Gary Hurst Designed Tone Bender MKI. Using NOS & period correct components, and meticulous tone matching we were able to produce a pedal that calls back to classic tones used by Jeff Beck, Mick Ronson (David Bowie), J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), and many more! The LIC Pedals Professional MK1 is the perfect option for high gain, sizzling leads with plenty of bottom end. It will cut through with a presence that commands attention. The Player’s Special version will give you the same tones everyone has come to expect from an LIC Pedals Professional MKI, but at a more affordable price point. This is a true Tone Bender MKI in every way. It also comes with our 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee, and lifetime warranty. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have about any of our products. We are always happy to discuss all things guitars, pedals and amps.

In 1965, on the search for more sustain, guitar legend Vic Flick (James Bond theme song) brought Maestro (FZ-1) Fuzz Tone to electronics engineer Gary Hurst. From that, The Tone Bender MK1 was born. Arguably the first fuzz pedal created in England, the MK1 offered the same features as its American counterpart (FZ-1) while supplying a higher output with a more harmonically complex sound.
