Foxcatcher from CopperSound is the result of a six-month trial and study. After a variety of breadboard builds and circuit explorations, the CopperSound team decided to clear the breadboard and start with a circuit that it loved, the Bluesbreaker. From there, the designers began changing and adding to the base circuit. The first of which was a slight change to the tone section and the addition of the Nature knob. From there, they added an output buffer and true bypass stylings.

From the start, they wanted to have an independent boost section on the pedal. That decision was easy, the Gravity Bomb. They then added an effect order toggle switch. Lastly, CopperSound incorporated a Burr Brown audiophile op amp and made it so that Foxcatcher can receive up to 18 volts. This allows for even more clarity.

  • VOLUME – Controls the overall output volume.
  • TONE – Controls the overall brightness. Adjust to taste.
  • NATURE – The “magic” knob! Use in conjunction with Tone and Drive to sculpt a glassier, tube-driven effect.
  • DRIVE – Controls the amount of overdrive. Get gritty while adding sustain.
  • FIRST TOGGLE – Determines whether the boost is pre (adds gain) or post (adds volume) to the drive circuit.
  • BOOST KNOB – Controls the desired boost amount when the right footswitch is engaged.
  • 9V-18V – Standard 5.5mm x 2.1mm center negative power supply. Foxcatcher has internal polarity protection. 18V is recommended for the “always on” player for it’s added clarity.
