FX69 Grunge

Early FX69 Grunge (1993), with original box

Introduced in Summer 1993, the DOD FX69 Grunge shared the same basic circuit as the FX70 Metal X (FX70X), but was voiced as a high-gain fuzz pedal. The FX69 was also notable as the first of many DOD pedals with non-intuitive control names (see below). The FX69 sold well, paving the way for less commercially viable products such as the FX33 Buzz Box, but was ultimately replaced by the final-series FX69B in 1998.
