Glenn Snoddy was working in the recording studio in Nashville, when a short on the control board caused Grady Martin's guitar to take on a new sound.  The engineers and producer looked at one another and asked if they heard that fuzzy sound.  That sound was later requested by other artists who sought the studio out.  So, Glenn went home and designed an effects box that was later sold to Gibson with the same name Glenn gave the device, the Fuzz Tone!
