Everyone will recognise its extreme, gated,'velcro' tones from hits like Muse's song "Plug In Baby". The one and only issue with the original pedal was the format, as it never played nicely with a regular layout on your pedal board. That's because it is a'landscape' format unit which doesn't sit well with standard'portrait' pedals like those by Boss and many others. I always have my Fuzz Factory sideways on my pedal board layout, so I can squeeze it in nicely. Zachary Vex , the owner of ZVex and pedal designer extraordinaire has finally seen sense and released a more'regular' format for his fuzz.I think this is a sensible move, and one which those players will appreciate who were put off the original by the size and orientation - no excuses now. Being a'Vexter' edition, this Fuzz Factory has a screen-printed exterior, unlike the original pedals, which were hand painted. It comes in at USD 199, making it a fair bit cheaper than the regular Fuzz Factory, which costs USD 319 each. GATE: Squelches noise after end of sustain. Turn to right to eliminatesqueals, hiss and buzz, stopping just as they disappear, or useto tune in exact feedback pitch, if you're that kind.
COMPRESS: Adds attack characteristic when turned to left, which gets softerto right, and suddenly pinches tone when all the way right. Alsouse to tune in fat feedback fuzz, if you're that kind. Lower theStability and see what happens to this control. DRIVE: Increases distortion when used as a "normal" fuzz and adjustsfeedback pitch and tonal thickness, if you're that kind.
This controlbecomes meaningless when Compress is all the way right. STAB: Use all the way right. Do not adjust this control below 2:00, unlessyou like your fuzz soft and squishy. Controls: Vol, Gate, Comp, Drive, Stab.
