Danelectro® owner Steve Ridinger founded FOXX® pedals in the 1970’s. His TONE MACHINE™ was huge right out of the gate. He priced it at $49. Today they cost $600+! Now he brings back his original Tone Machine™ design 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 starting FOXX®, 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: 213-985-3699. Creepy!
