The RonSound Flender - a reissue of the classic Fender Blender. The Smashing Pumpkins sound!! Big, heavy fuzz with octave-up madness and a BOOST at the touch of a switch. True-bypass with LEDs for both footswitches. A classic is reborn at RonSound.
I can hear you saying "why should I pay more for a RonSound version when I can get the actual Fender reissue for less?" Why indeed! The RonSound Flender takes up about 1/2 the space the Fender Blender does, freeing up valuable real estate on your pedalboard:

Secondly, the RonSound Flender is made like the originals with proper transistors and diodes for an authentic sound. Plus, it's made in the USA and not in some overseas factory. Finally, I've got LEDs on mine and Fender doesn't, so there.
Here are some sound samples of the Flender in MP3 format. These were made by a customer
and show the Flender alone and with the RonSound Trem-O-Matic. The guitar clips feature the same riff three times -- clean, flender'd, and flender+boost switch.
