The Fenix is one of Foxgear’s most versatile overdrive/distortion pedals, and is one of those “go-to” pedals that make it an indispensable member of a guitarist’s tone arsenal. Thanks to Foxgear’s pioneering distortion circuitry, “DynaFET™”, the Fenix covers a wide-range of distorted tones, from early ’70s overdrive to modern hard-rock sounds and all of the dirty and gritty territory in between.
Like all of Foxgear’s Professional Compact series pedals, the Foxgear Fenix measures only 2.3” x 4.7” x 1.1”, and can easily fit any pedalboard. Constructed with completely screw-free housings, the Fenix features an acrylic faceplate that lights up and glows warmly once connected to power, and comes with a limited 5 year warranty.
The Foxgear Fenix also features simple to use controls including gain, volume controls and a sensible, ‘tweakable’ 3-band EQ, top jacks so cables don’t intrude on neighboring pedals allowing you to fit more pedals on your pedal board, and true bypass switching for noise free operation.
The Fenix from Foxgear delivers an array of OD/distorted tones, from early 70's overdrive to fully saturated tones perfect for Hard and Heavy-Rock. Endorsed by some of the music industry’s biggest names, including Adrian Belew of King Crimson and Steve Lukather of Toto, Foxgear is an Italian company that offers boutique quality pedals at a great price. The Fenix Overdrive/Distortion, with its trademark DynaFET™ circuitry, is sure to deliver everything from gritty blues tones to full-on saturated Metal tones, at nearly half the price of comparable boutique units.
