The DingoTone Fat Dingo Distortion (“FDD”) pedal is a workhorse distortion pedal.
Perfect for playing covers and originals, the FDD has the flexibility to be your go-to distortion on stage, in the studio and in the basement. It is a tiny box full of great tone!
RESPONSIVE TO GUITAR VOLUME: The FDD will clean up nicely when you wind back the guitar volume.
TRUE BYPASS: The FDD has proper (3PDT) True Bypass. We have worked hard to minimise the inevitable true bypass clicking.
PREMIUM COMPONENTS: The FDD is constructed from premium components and we hand measure and select components where needed.
LOW POWER:The FDD operates from internal battery or external 9VDC power (standard “center negative”). Current draw is less than 10mA so it won’t load down your power supply and an alkaline battery lasts 20+ hours.
PEDALBOARD FRIENDLY: The FDD comes in our pedal-board friendly small enclosure (approx. 4½ by 2½ inches).
Demos can be found at the bottom of the page… (please scroll down).
Keep the Dirt control at minimum for a light crunchy distortion, bring it up through “noon” for some meaty dirt, or crank it up to get an almost fuzzy tone.
The tone stack allows you to dial in almost anything you need – from subtle tweaking of the tone, to searing treble, to huge bass, to cut bass, to scooped mids, to mid-hump. Or leave the EQ at noon and the response is completely flat.
The FDD is perfect for rock, soft rock, Southern rock, blues, alternative, grunge, country, gospel, industrial… and anything that needs some straight-forward distortion.
The FDD has the flexibility to provide many different tones making it an excellent tool for covers bands.
Musicians using our Big Sky Drive pedal were asking for something heavier, something closer to a hard rock pedal. So we worked with our users to design a pedal that feels like standing in front of a well balanced tube amp stack. With the FDD it’s all about feel. Notes and chords simply feel great to play, particularly at high volume!
Once we had the perfect distortion tone we added an active tone stack and heaps of output level. The result is a killer distortion pedal that has both “grunt” and spectacular flexibility.
Tone: Users regularly comment that it “makes my amp come alive”.
Flexibility: a huge number of tones just flow out of the pedal.
Value: You can’t beat the value. You receive a hand-made North American pedal for an excellent price!
Quality and reliability: Every pedal passes over twenty quality tests before it is shipped. We haven’t had a warranty claim in over three years. DingoTone pedals stay on your pedal board – where they belong!
