Happy Pedal Monday! Today's Pedal is the DanoElectro 3369 Fuzz

Today's Pedal is the The Danoelectro 3369 fuzz! I have always been a huge fan of the original Foxx Tone Machine. They are just so expensive now. When I found they that the original creator is remaking the pedal with a few tweaks I was all in. We end up using this pedal a whole lot on our new record "New Blood" Here is a little blurb about the pedal from Danoelectro.



Danelectro® owner Steve Ridinger created the FOXX® pedal line in the 1970’s. Steve priced the FOXX® Tone Machine® at $49. Today originals sell for $600+. Now 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!
