The Zvex Fuzz Factory is a versatile fuzz/distortion pedal designed for use with electric guitar, but of course usable with any electronic instrument. The pedal is made up of analog components, boasting new old-stock 60's germanium transistors. The Fuzz Factory has standard 1/4" connections and 9 volt power is needed. It isn't rackable as it is a stomp box.


The make up of the Zvex Fuzz Factory is generally pretty easy to understand. I should say that a have a lot of experience working with distortion and pedals in general, but I believe that even if you didn't have too much experience that you'd be able to figure out how to use this pedal pretty quickly. The pedal has parameters for volume, gate, compression, drive, and stab. The manual should help you out if you're unfamiliar with what these types of parameters will accomplish.


Generally, I'm a big fan of the tones that are possible with the Zvex Fuzz Factory. You've got your standard fuzz and distortion tones that can really rip, but it also has the capabilities to go beyond these basic tones. Having the built in compression is a huge plus, and for me is one of the best parts about this pedal. I have used the Fuzz Factory for recording in tandem with a Fender Jazzmaster and a '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb, so I got a great idea of what the pedal truly sounds like, and let me tell you that I like what I hear!


While a bit more pricey than most fuzz pedals out there, what you are getting with the Zvex Fuzz Factory is versatility and top notch craftsmanship and build. The pedal is built like a brick, and I've seen it come in a few different very cool looking designs. I'd recommend checking this one of for sure if you're looking for any sort of fuzz or distortion pedal, as I think that you'll be very happy that you did so.
