The Foxgear Manic fuzz pedal is inspired by Jimi Hendrix's much sought after fuzz sound. This is one of the best quality stompboxes you'll find at an entry-level price.
Tone is everything. And the Manic delivers on all fronts. Rather than fiddling with lots of preamp and volume parameters before getting the desired sound, the Manic keeps it simple. Insert into your pedalboard through a clean amp and you'll create a responsive and organic fuzz.
Most cheaper pedals are constructed using SMD components, making it easy to install by machines. But all Foxgear pedals are carefully hand-built with non-SMD, true bypass circuitry and analogue design, ensuring completely transparent effects. All covered by a five-year warranty.
Clever internal layouts reduce the footprint of Foxgear pedals. You'll be able to fit four of these stompboxes onto a pedalboard when there's only space for three standard-sized pedals. Top mounted jacks make it easy to hook up into your signal chain. An acrylic faceplate lights up when the pedal is turned on so you'll see it on the darkest of stages.
Foxgear were launched in 2017 by renowned Italian brands Gurus and Baroni-Lab. These pedals showcase the best construction respected engineers could have only achieved by working together. Designer Ugo Baroni and manager Chicco Bellini are constantly involved with researching, developing and working with professional musicians to ensure quality standards.
The Italian company are endorsed by some huge names. The likes of Steve Lukather from Toto, Adrian Belew formerly of King Crimson and Motorhead's Phil Campbell joined this new project to deliver exciting effects pedals.
