    Found this shot of his rig at rehearsals for his upcoming album/tour.

    Just wondering what the first pedal is, on the floor?

    Cheers

    It's a very early Fulltone 69 pedal. It sounds amazing

    It could be, but I don't remember Fulltone ever painting their early pedals that were in hammond enclosures. Didn't they normally leave them blank with transparent labeling?

    Ya, the only picture I found was of an unpainted hammond box... could it be a custom paint job? Otherwise, it looks the part.

    Must sound amazing, considering the awesome fuzzes he already has!

    It does make sense...Philip likes to swap around the fuzz/wah positions and if you look at the pick the supposed 69 is before the wah and right after it is his old Si Fuzz Face...also he is a Fuzz Face junkie.

    considering that i have the rest of his board committed to memory. . . .i'm surprised i've never seen that one before. . .

    i'll go ask and see if he responds. . .

    For what it's worth, I have seen early Hammond box Fulltone pedals, such as the '69 and Octafuzz that were painted. It'd be from around '94-'95 I think. The first Guitar Player review of Fulltone pedals included a picture of the ones painted in this style.

    You are correct sir!

    Here is a hand painted Deja Vibe for example.

    There were handpainted 69's and they were red.

    Check the April 1993 issue of GP for more pics.

    i saw a video of him talking about that board and why he likes to put his germanium fuzzes before his wah. In the video he talks about building a germanium fuzz pedal with Cesar Diaz out of parts he had hanging around..That could be that pedal

    The Diaz Square Face is directly above the Fuzz Face.

    In the Rig-Rundown video on Youtube, he mentions having an original germanium Fuzz Face that's "sick" and "needs to go the hospital"...

    I wonder if this early '69 is a sort of replacement? Anyone have any info on the trannies? NKT 275s?

    Cheers

    Very early Fulltone '69 in Hammond enclosure. Paint it red and I think that's it...

    I believe this is correct. Early 4-knob painted version.
