Professional MKI


The LIC Pedals Professional MK1 is a faithful recreation of the Gary Hurst Design. 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.

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.
