After last month’s recent teaser campaign, it’s finally official. Warm Audio has entered the world of guitar effects and breathed new life into two legends with the Foxy Tone Box and the Jet Phaser. If the pictures haven’t already given them away, read on to see what these pedals are based on.

Foxy Tone Box (WA-FTB)

The original fur covered fOXX Tone Machine pedal first saw the light of day all the way back in 1971, and has since become a legend. This classic fuzz has been used by players from Peter Frampton and Billy Gibbons, to Adam Jones and Nine Inch Nails, to Beck. But since not everyone has 17,700 euros, Warm Audio has kindly helped us all out with a reissue that won’t break your bank.

The new Foxy Tone Box is an exact replica of the coveted and popular fOXX pedal, right down to the thick velvet that covers it. It certainly has the look and vibe of the original model, and hopefully the sound too. The circuit utilises New Old Stock Fairchild germanium transistors selected germanium diodes, high watt carbon resistors, and film capacitors.

The pedal is handmade, and intends to bring that classic sound and feel into the present day.

RRP – USD 149

Jet Phaser (WA-JP)

The Jet Phaser is another replica of a much sought-after early 1970s design. Of the many phasers that were created during that time, one stood out due to its flexibility, sound quality, and the addition of a fuzz effect: the Roland Jet Phaser. Once Again, Warm Audio has tried to recreate not only the innards, but also the striking bulky exterior of the original. However, this version gets updated with a true bypass. The WA-JP should be more reliable, and definitely more affordable than the vintage model.

RRP – USD 199

What’s next?

This is a very successful start for Warm Audio in the guitar sector and I applaud both of their choices. We hear at Gearnews say “Welcome, yes please, and more of it!”

Value?

Well, do you have your finger on the order button? I have to admit, I am already lusting after that hairy orange box of wonder. Especially since at $149, the WA-FTB is cheaper than the recent replica from Danelectro, although the 3699 is more compact and may be better for cramped pedalboards.

Both devices will be available from September.
