Danelectro is here to give you all the retro fuzz you could want with their brand new Danelectro Nichols 1966. The pedal is a modern re-creation of the Liverpool Fuzz-Tone, originally created by Foxx pedals founder and current Danelectro owner Steve way back in the ’60s.
“Steve had no money to buy a fuzz and no access to any schematics,” wrote Danelectro of the pedal and its predecessor. “So he created a completely unique circuit architecture that has never been seen again. Although he called his box a ‘fuzz’, it was in fact half way between a distortion and a fuzz. This incredible box dishes out delicious tones unlike those of any pedal ever made.”
The Danelectro Nichols 1966 offers all the classic controls you’d expect from a fuzz pedal – Fuzz, Drive, Tone, and Volume knobs with an extra option to cut your mids. The Danelectro Nichols 1966 brings with it a unique 3-transistor circuit and gives you a distinctive “glass-shattering” sound.
