    Does anyone know where I can find the tonebender fuzz pedal that Justin chancellor from tool uses? I looked on the Internet a bit and I can't seem to find one anywhere. Their not available or sold out.

  5. What tool selections do you really like the sound of? I think the majority of his dirt parts are actually his GT2 Distortion. I'm not saying I know this for a fact but alot of his stuff sounds more like that distortion than the tonebender fuzz

    Having been one of those guys who duplicated his rig in the past, this is partially true, actually. The vast majority of his distorted tones come courtesy of the GT-2 in combination with his RAT channel.

    Dean (Toolmybass) can totally back me up on this, I'm sure. ;)

    +1 on Macaris.

    I was in London last year and bought one. Nice pedal.
  8. Yeah I thought most of it sounded like the GT-2. I can't think of anything off the top of my head that sounds like the tonebender. Maybe the intro to Jambi?

    Jambi (solo section)
    Current live versions of Flood (intro)
    Current live version of Intolerance (breakdown)
    Lost Keys/Blame Hoffman (intro/bas and drum brwakdown)
    Current live versions of H. (intro)

    I'll post more if I think of any. ;)
  10. Sounds like a bunch of live stuff for intros and outros lol. Any parts he uses it in the studio? Is the intro of jambi the gt2? It's so fuzzy I figured it had to be the fuzz for sure.
  11. Do the new ones sound like the old ones do?
  12. +1

    Thats a yes for the intro to Jambi as well.
  13. The Jambi intro is the GT2?!
  14. Are all his dirt parts between the gt2,tonebender, and the rat? Somewhere I read he used a depth charge as well but I have never seen any pictures or proof of this pedal existing on his board
  15. No...Tonebender
  16. Do a YouTube search "Dunlop,Tool,Bass " and you shall see what u want!!
  17. Nice video. Don't see the depth charge but he is using the prescription electronics overdriver on his dirt channel. Jeez wouldn't it be nice to have 2000$ worth of effects for your "play" pedalboard you bring out just for fun hahaha. I wonder what exactly that little home made tone generator does.
  18. I'm surprised with all the money he has he uses cheap digital boss pedals for most of his modulation.
