Why the name Fur Coat you may wonder, if you did ... good question! This pedal is based on a Foxx Tone Machine which had a furry covering ... mystery solved! The Foxx Tone Machine had a much more complex circuit than the standard fuzzes of the era and included an octave up on a toggle switch. As with all things classic fuzz people love how they all sound for different reasons. Orange have been very loyal to the original tone while adding some much needed upgrades.
First things first, the controls are moved from the side of the pedal now to the more conventional top. Secondly and just as importantly, the toggle switch to engage the octave is now a footswitch meaning you can turn it on mid song!
The Octave also now features its own control allowing you to blend in just the right amount of upper octave to suit the tone you need.
Compare the Fur Coat to the classic fuzzes on tonepedia and hear how you can save $20,000 (yes one did sell for that much) with this awesome offering from Orange.
