FoxxTave - Foxx Tone Machine Fuzz with Ultimate Options

Classic early 70s fuzz tones. Massive, saturated fuzz but with a rounded, fat tone missing in a lot of extreme fuzz boxes.

The PCB has been designed to fit nicely into a vertical 1590B-sized enclosure, with board-mounted toggle switch to turn the octave effect on-off. However, move up to a 1590BB box and have the octave effect on a footswitch if you really want to. Why? Well, you can also opt to build a famous modern interpretation of the FTM which has that very footswitch. In this format there's also an extra toggle switch to select FAT/BRIGHT tone.

You can make a horizontal-box, twin footswitch 1590B version with this kit if you want to, but you'll have to work out your own box drilling. The twin footswitch version now has its own kit which is 1590BB.

If you choose to include an enclosure it'll be drilled according to the circuit version you select.

Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.

Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.

Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will not take a battery. Knobs are not included.

Builds are only available with full kits including enclosures. Please choose appropriate knobs.

Awesome! 5 product stars
"Epic, face melting 70 s fuzz at it s best. This is my first kit from Fuzzdogs and I couldn t be happier. The board, components and instructions are the best I ve seen and the pedal sound amazing! If you re a fuzz addict like me, you need this in your life." Ben Spinks - 27/01/2019
Big fat fuzz! 5 product stars
"Great sounding pedal! I haven't had that much experience with fuzz and bought this kit from watching youtube reviews and hoping for the best. I'm happy to say this is everything I hoped it would be! The octave option isn't for everyone and I find myself turning it off more than on. The fuzz tone however is excellent! And it's a beast! Really useable sounds from both bright and fat modes. The bright is a lot more scooped and the fat mode a lot more middy. The tone control is powerful enough to cope with both and I found a great Fu Manchu type tone in fat mode with the tone down low. Sorry neighbours... :-)" Dez - 26/07/2017

"I have to say that I was dubious when I first read about this pedal, and the absence of a review, but I wanted something to cut my teeth with and went for this. I got the 'ultimate' setup with the octive switching and I have to say that it sounds amazing!. It is a tight squeeze but the prefab box is spot on and the components were as they should be. There has been some thought in regards to what parts make up the pedal and though it doesn't have the exotic pots some seem to go for in custom guitar upgrades, all the actual important switching and jack inputs are of a good breed - think switchcraft and true bi-pass. Oh, and did i mention the sound; thick, dirty but with a good pinch of clarity and control. The octive switch is a funny beast but you can get the pedal to oscillate, which gives a nod to the germanium fuzzers out there, and with it off you have a nice spectrum of fuzz/dirt; again the fat switch is a great little tweak. Bottom line, it made me smile. Thanks to mr poodle for selling this top kit........." Noel Britton - 09/02/2014
