The ZVEX Fuzz Factory is a five-knob fuzz pedal using two sixties germanium transistors that allows you to shape almost every aspect of your fuzz sound. Whilst not modeled on any particular classic fuzz design, the ‘new old-stock’ transistors inside will give you some awesome and highly sought after vintage tones, as well as more modern sounds. This pedal is designed to give you a personalized sound, rather than have a straight-out-of-the-box tone that every other guitarist with that pedal has. That said, due to the open ended nature of the controls, some settings can make the really make the guitar feedback and squeal, so starting with ‘example’ settings is recommended. With Volume, Gate, Compression, Drive and Stability parameters, you can create almost endless combinations of fuzz from retro Hendrix to really raw Matt Bellamy tones. As the pedals are all hand-assembled and hand-painted, each is unique.
