Let’s talk about the Stupid Deal on the Vox Tone Garage Trike Fuzz! A couple of days ago I mentioned another stupid deal by Vox – the Double Deca Delay, and people jumped on that one like crazy. So a few of you might be into this interesting octave fuzz by Vox!
As one review said – “monophonic with glitchy overtones” I think that describes the fuzz well. With the Vox Tone Garage Trike Fuzz you get a 2 octave down and 1 octave up or both. Additionally, you get volume and gain controls, as well as a volume control for the -2 octave and a tone to control +1 octave.
Here is the official description of the Voxt Tone Garage Trike Fuzz:
This is an octave fuzz overflowing with vintage character, utilizing specially selected diodes. It covers not only a range of one octave up, but also two octaves down. You can choose three types of octave settings: +1 or, -1 and -2, or all upward and downward octaves to obtain thick vintage fuzz sounds. In addition, there’s a tone control for +1 octave and a volume control for -2 octave. Since the Trike Fuzz operates the downward octave circuits in series and combines them in parallel with the upward octave at the end, you can create a diverse range of sounds that cannot be obtained with existing octave fuzz units.
For a demo, I found a great one by ProGuitarShopDemos:
Let’s get into the deal. The Vox Tone Garage Trike Fuzz lists for $200, and is usually available for $140, but is currently on sale at Musician’s Friend for a crazy low price of $69.99, which is 50% off the going rate. Awesome! If you’re looking for a gnarly fuzz with octaves, well, this might be the time. Just like all Stupid Deals of the Day, the deal only lasts for one day.. or as long there is stock available, so if you’re interested, you need to jump on it before it’s too late!
