Danelectro® owner Steve Ridinger created the FOXX® pedal line in the 1970’s. Steve brings back his original circuit with some important tweaks. He made the octave way more pronounced, the octave is foot switchable, the tone is warmer, and there is a “mids boost” toggle that counteracts the mid cut of the original pedal. Velvet tone for sure! Play one!
WHY CALL IT THE “3699 FUZZ™”?
Back in the 1970’s, it was cool to have a phone number that spelled your product name. So about a year after launching the FOXX® pedals, Steve sat down in front of a phone dial and worked out what numbers were needed to spell F-O-X-X. He figured out the numbers were 3-6-9-9. To his amazement, this was the phone number FOXX® already had! A year earlier, the phone company had randomly assigned him this number: 213-XXX-3699. Creepy!
