Fur Coat and Getaway Driver pedals unveiled by Orange Amps

Both pedals have been designed by Orange’s technical director Adrian Emsley.

Orange Amplification has introduced two new pedals to its range; The Fur Coat and the Getaway Driver.

The Fur Coat, inspired by the great fuzz tones from the seventies, is loosely based on the old Foxx Tone Machine originally released in 1971, which was often used by artists such as Peter Frampton and Adrian Belew.

Designed with a foot switchable octave, it is superbly versatile, allowing players to adjust the level of the upper octave rather than just turn it on and off.

In keeping with the era’s vibe, it is built with germanium diodes and is Orange’s only true bypass pedal. When used it puts a ‘dirty, smelly fur coat’ on every note produced giving them a warm, furry quality.

“It sounds absolutely phenomenal,” said Clutch’s Tim Sult. Matt Pike from Sleep commented: "I've tried every fuzz pedal on the planet. This is my new favourite. The Fur Coat is everything I expected Orange would do with an octave fuzz. It's seriously gnarly.”

Orange has also introduced the action-packed Getaway Driver – an amp-in-a-box type pedal.

It has the same transparent, buffered output as the Orange Two Stroke and Kongpressor pedals plus a second Cab Sim / headphone output. This makes the Getaway Driver perfect for silent practice or recording.

The three dials, Volume, Bite (tone) and Gain, allow players to ‘rev their engine’. The pedal really excels when played through an amp’s clean channel, even ones with a bright cap. Low gain and high volume makes for a clean boost, pushing amps over the edge into classic overdrive.

“This pedal is great… it sounds like vintage Orange,” observed Damon Fox from The Cult/Big Elf.

Both pedals have been designed by Orange’s technical director Adrian Emsley.

The Fur Coat can be powered by 9 or 12V DC. Running at 12V increases the headroom and the output volume available. The Getaway Driver can be powered by 9 or 12V DC. At 9Vs the pedal has the characteristics of EL84 valves, whereas 12Vs gives it an EL34 flavour.
