Classic Tones - Modern Control 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.
An Orange amp in a box. The Orange Getaway Driver is an Overdrive pedal which will send you into vintage territory. It's Class A circuitry delivers a rich harmonic content while staying responsive to your playing.This amp-in-a-box needs no more than three dials to get from a cranked AC-30 to a solid creamy blues-rock experience. The bite knob works as a tone control which focuses on high frequencies while leaving the lows pretty untouched. An internal switch even rolls off frequencies above 20kHz. The additional buffered headphone out with cab simulation can be used for quiet practicing, to go straight to an interface or via a di-box to the PA. Nice add-on! The pedal operates on a standard 9-volt power supply to emulate EL84 valves or 12-volt for the EL34 flavour.The Orange Getaway Driver is definitely worth a ride!
