Handwired in Barcelona, the Manlay Fuzz MKIII is a Sola Sound Tone Bender MKIII replica, as used by Jimmy Page. It is smoother and had less gain than the MKII, using a Germanium transistor and featuring a Tone control.

The original MKIII was introduced in 1968, again featuring a newly designed circuit. It presented a tone control to allow a wide variety of sounds ranging from a psychedelic mosquito squeal to a fat mamooth growl.


The MKIII is a softer fuzz than its predecessor, the MKII, and has sound texture in its own. Manlay Sound’s MKIII is loaded with 3 selected germanium transistors and a germanium diode, all of which contribute to the unique fuzz sound. 


All its quality components are hand wired and soldered using point to point technique - not even an original had such pedigree. The MKIII was used by famous players of the era like Jimmy Page who used the Rotosound-branded version of the MKIII.
