ZVEX Fuzz Factory Pedal Review


If you want a versatile fuzz pedal with a very fun spectrum of sound manipulation, this is a great guitar pedal.  The self oscillating pitch control is especially fun to play with.

Review by Bob Lanzetti / Guitarist, Snarky Puppy

My Fuzz Factory ZVEX is next up when considering best guitar pedals. The pedal sounds like no other. You can put it anywhere from a (relatively) ordinary fuzz sound, to a ripping velcro sound, to a mess of self-oscillating pitches wrapped in whatever note you play in. When it’s time to get crazy the Fuzz Factory is still put to work.

Fuzz Features:

  • 2 stock ’60s germanium transistors
  • Controls for Volume, Gate, Compress 
  • Controls for Stability and Drive 
  • Aluminum chassis
  • Hand-silkscreened casing.

ZVEX Fuzz Guitar Pedal

The Fuzz Factory ZVEX pedal does not sound like any other. From a (relatively) usual fuzz sound, to a tearing velcro sound, to a mess of self-oscillating pitches enveloping whatever note you play in, you can place it anywhere. The Fuzz Factory is always put to work when it’s time to get strange.

  • The Germanium Transistors are exceptional
  • Authentic Vintage tones
  • Energy Efficient Effects Pedal
  • It can take some time to dial this pedal in but it can be a very fun and experimental pedal once you get the hang of it
