The CopperSound Foxcatcher a 2-in-1 overdrive pedal with an independent boost. Inspired by the Bluesbreaker, we began changing and adding to the base circuit. Firstly, we made changes to the tone section along with the addition of the Nature knob, which is an overall presence control. Next, we added an output buffer that’s active when the pedal is engaged. This greatly helps to improve the overall output level. A well known issue found in the original Bluesbreaker units. From the start, we wanted to develop a pedal that had an independent clean boost section incorporated in it. That decision was easy, our Gravity Bomb V1. A fully neutral, op-amp clean boost.
Once real world testing was in full swing, we started showing friends, family and local dealers. Taking everyone’s critiques into consideration, we added an effect order toggle switch. This allows the boost section to be added before the overdrive for more volume, or after the overdrive for more gain. Lastly, we incorporated a Burr Brown audiophile-grade op-amp and made it so that Foxcatcher can receive up to 18 volts for increased headroom. This strengthens the signal and allows for even more clarity to this Bluesbreaker circuit. Foxcatcher uses mechanical, true bypass switching. Your new favorite overdrive pedal!
