Overview

Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to introduce you to the Fat Fuzz Factory, a take on Z.Vex's original company flag ship Fuzz Factory. The Fat Fuzz Factory features a sub switch that opens the pedal up to an astounding new bottom end. This means the pedal can oscillate at much lower registers, giving it some very interesting thunder broom synth qualities. Based on field reports, this new fatness lends itself particularly well to the bass guitar, and rips equally well on guitar.

Features
  • Sub switch with even more bottom end than the original Fuzz Factory
  • Works well with guitar or bass

    Comments about Zvex Vexter Fat Fuzz Factory Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I run my Fat Fuzz Factory into a Sansamp GT2 distortion pedal, and they work beautifully together. Doesn't work well with my Fulltone OCD, but I think that's more of an OCD thing than a ZVex thing. Got it for the bass options, but it rolls off a bit of treble when the bass switch is engaged, so I use it just like a regular Fuzz Factory.

    Difficult learning curve, but so rewarding

      Comments about Zvex Vexter Fat Fuzz Factory Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This pedal has one of the hardest learning curves of any that I've played, but take your time to understand its controls and you will be rewarded with quite possibly the most versatile fuzz pedal out there. Not only must you learn how each of the controls interacts with each other, but your volume and tone knob on your guitar become crucial to unlocking all of the pedal's nuances. It has rendered most other fuzz pedals obsolete - rather than being locked into a fairly specific sound, I can get just about any fuzz sound I'm looking for. Ring modulated pseudo octave up sounds? Wall of fuzz doom metal sounds? Dying battery fuzz? Gated synth? It's all here. I considered docking a star for the learning curve, but I don't believe it would be such a versatile pedal otherwise. Strongly recommended, don't give up on it! I almost did very early on, but I'm glad I kept digging.

      Comments about Zvex Vexter Fat Fuzz Factory Guitar Effects Pedal:

      A really nice, pretty versitile fuzz capable of a wide variety of sounds from light overdrive style fuzz all the way up to heavy, sputtery, bit crusher style sounds.

      While its versitile, its hard to dial up properly and it almost always has at least a very slight sputtery style to it which some people dont like. It also is prone to feedback and has a background noise to it thats hard to describe.

      Its certainly not your classic style fuzz, so if thats what you want Id look elsewhere. But if you want a fuzz that can dial in really big, fat, long sustaining sounds, and is capable of some really interesting and intense fuzz sounds that sound like a tube amp being over heated and pushed to the absolute limit, then definitely check this one out.

      Comments about Zvex Vexter Fat Fuzz Factory Guitar Effects Pedal:

      from the get go i was looking for a fuzz that stood out something weirder than your normal FUZZ , i researched for hours and found this little fat sack of fuzz and decided to go with it due to the fame of its predecessor fuzz factory and because this thing sounded wild just insane variety of fuzz you can get just on the first setting alone , the three way octave switch this thing has makes it , it really creates something completely different for each mode you can dial in a raunchy dirty grind fuzz in switch 1" basic fuzz factory" right into switch 3 which just gives it an insane low end doom fuzz and then over to switch 2 and it creates something unique again. this thing is like having three fuzz pedals cause any dial in will sound significantly different in each switch setting which is really nice , too bad the vexter series is only a 2 year warranty , i love this pedal so much i get paranoid it will go out or something in that case id gladly pay for it again its that good , ......................................................................................................................................................... last thing id like to add is its use with other effects pedals , i could not find any information online about its use with other effects for me i was looking for information about fuzz with reverb , with normal distortion tones i like to use alot of reverb to give it that distant haunting quality , with the fat fuzz factory your going to want to run it as the first pedal from your guitar for maximum quality and i have to say it does sound better with out any effects as a stand alone you get some serious warm analog fuzz tones that i have never imagined , something impossible to get from a normal fuzz for me , the fat fuzz factory is THICK WARM AND FAT through a tube amp , just love it , in use with my HOF reverb pedal it works but you loose a little warmth and buzz of the fuzz , will work nice with effects but as a standalone your ears will just melt in WARM FAT THICK SATURATED FUZZ it almost tickles your ear drum in a soothing way , for someone who does not want an insane variety of crazy weird fuzz tones go with something plain but for those of you who want an eccentric pedal this is your grail

      Comments about Zvex Vexter Fat Fuzz Factory Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This thing can do Smashmouth "When the Morning Comes" style fuzz. As well as Rolling Stones "Satisfaction". And with the bass switch I have even coaxed a unique "Spirit In The Sky" out of it. The Bass sound does not affect the 1st setting and has a warm sound to it. This thing is fun. The best way to get it alive is to put the amp just at breakup.
