Made famous by Jimi Hendrix, the Octavio Fuzz and its touch-responsive octave-up saturation continue to be employed by modern players, from straight-up rockers to low ’n’ slow doomsayers. For the first time ever, that iconic effect has joined the MXR standard line. The layout is as simple as it ever has been—just set the Output and Fuzz controls to your desired volume and intensity, and allow your picking and plucking dynamics to coax out the pedal’s legendarily searing, synth-like tones. Explore the furthest reaches of silicon saturation in a trusted vessel. Get yourself an MXR Octavio Fuzz.
Loosely based on the vintage Foxx Tone Machine, the Orange Fur Coat Fuzz takes its inspiration from the great fuzz pedals of the 70’s.
The Fur Coat gives you a fully controllable octave fuzz pedal. Separate switches mean you can choose between Fuzz or Octave Fuzz. The controllable Octave up fuzz means you can bring in the fuzz to whatever level you need and the EQ allows you to boost your Treble or Bass. This truly is a fuzz you control.
This is our only True Bypass pedal. This is because a Fuzz is better at the beginning of the chain where it interacts directly with your guitar. Placing the pedal further into your signal chain or after a buffer will give the fuzz a more distorted tone.
The Orange Fur Coat fuzz can be used into a clean amp or an amp with some hair. When used into an overdriven amp, it creates a unique, thick “fur coat” of vintage fuzz.
Something quite rare, rather than simply being able to switch it on/off, the Fur Coat adds octave up as you increase the octave control.
LOW POWER CONSUMPTION:
The Orange Fur Coat fuzz draws very little current (much less than 10mA) allowing for long battery life. Use a regulated 9-12V DC centre-negative power supply.

Carl regularly spends some of his spare time listening to his old records from the 60’s and 70’s. More often than not, he will find a record or artist that will inspire him to create a new pedal. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 records or artists to fully develop an idea! Now, think back to Jimi Hendrix and the Band of Gypsies, Robin Trower’s Bridge of Sighs, or almost anything by David Gilmour, and then open your creative mind to the Purple Moon! It has taken a couple years on the bench for Carl to be satisfied because it has been developed with very creative guitarists in mind. The Purple Moon is the only True Bypass, all analog, dual speed Vibe with Fuzz, and it is your ticket to recreating the same classic guitar sounds that inspired Carl. Like the rest of the pedals in the Vintage Series, the Purple Moon features a die-cast case with it’s own special colour, mini knobs for ease of use, high quality switching, bright visible LED’s and a choice of 9V battery power, or suitable transformer
