      Zvex Vexter Fuzz Factory Guitar Effect Pedal (104898440)
Availability:  


Massive fuzz in a hand-silkscreened aluminum chassis.

The Vexter Fuzz Factory from ZVex is a 5-knob fuzz pedal with 2 NOS '60s germanium transistors, and it comes in a hand-polished aluminum chassis with hand-silkscreened, 2-color text. Though the circuit isn't modeled after any one specific classic fuzz, it delivers tones straight out of the 1960s. These 5 knobs control the Fuzz Factory's parameters at various operating levels, letting you shape your own personalized fuzz effect.

ZVex designed the Fuzz Factory to consume less energy than other effects pedals. When on, the Fuzz Factory's current is less than 3 mA. This fuzz pedal is hand-painted and assembled, and each is unique.

Fuzz Factory Controls

Volume: Output level

Gate: Squelches noise after end of sustain. Turn to the right to eliminate squeals, hiss, and buzz, stopping just as they disappear, or use to tune in exact feedback pitch. Turning to the left opens gate.

Compress: Adds attack characteristic when turned to the left, which gets softer to right, and suddenly pinches tone when all the way right. Also tunes in fat, feedbacky fuzz. Lower the Stability and see what happens to this control.

Drive: Increases distortion when used as a "normal" fuzz and adjusts feedback pitch and tonal thickness.

Stability: Use to control feedback pitch. This is one of the more finicky controls, so it will take some experimentation to get it right.


Zvex Vexter Fuzz Factory Guitar Effect Pedal Features:

  • Made with 2 new old stock '60s germanium transistors
    Volume, Gate, Compress, Drive, and Stability controls
    Hand-silkscreened, hand-polished aluminum chassis

  • UNTOUCHABLE

    As reviewed by Tom Amereihn on 4/16/2014

    This is the most unruly, unpredictable, unprecedented, unique and crazy pedal I own! I LOVE IT!!! I see some of these earlier, negative reviews that name this pedal as "garbage", "junk" and poor "build quality". From what I see these people want a vintage fuzz sound and they expect to get it out of a pedal that WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR THAT. This pedal does not conform to "standard" specifications. It is intended not for the faint of heart or for people who don't want to experiment and find their own sound. It even says so in the paperwork that comes with it! As far as "build quality" goes, anything you own that you don't want to break, TAKE CARE OF IT! Regardless of how much or how little a piece of gear costs if you want it to last don't treat it like it will never break. Everything has a failure point. The Fuzz Factory is for the open minded that can think outside the box, be creative and want a very dynamic, unconventional and diverse sounding fuzz. This thing can go from a shrill, twangy, 8 bit arcade style sounding fuzz to the most wooly, scratchy, noisy fuzz on the planet! It reacts to how you play and the guitars volume pot. The harder you play the more wool and compression you get out of it. Ease back a bit and it becomes a very reactive Fuzz Factory (pardon the pun). Roll the volume back and get some scratchy, AM radio sounding fuzz that you can roll the volume back up to become a fuzz with so much balls your head will explode!!! If you want a fuzz that you have never heard before, here it is!

  • Endless Fuzz

    As reviewed by Tristan Faubel on 11/9/2012

    This is the first effects box I've ever actually owned, and it is worth every penny and more! I am a huge Muse fan, which is the reason I originally wanted it. I'd never played with it, but the Youtube demos and the reviews were enticing. As soon as I got it home and plugged it in, I could tell that this will always be my favorite effect. True, you may not be able to COVER thousands of different artist's sounds with it, but the ability to carefully sculpt your own ORIGINAL personal fuzz tone (while still getting high quality audio) is so much better! I was looking for Muse fuzz, but quickly got lost in crafting my own favorite fuzz setting. The construction of the box is very solid. It's weighted enough to where you don't have to worry about flipping it over when you hit the switch with your toe whilst you play. The parameter knobs are very tight, with no wiggling or slipping; once you adjust a parameter, it STAYS there. The only question I have is: Why did I wait so long to buy this?!
