ZVex’s legendary fuzz pedal comes with NOS 1960s GT308 germanium transistors and a UV hand-painted enclosure that makes it stand out from the crowd.
Eye Bleeding Fuzz
Based on a pair of NOS GT308 germanium transistors the new USA Vexter Fuzz Factory 7 will make your ears bleed if you set it to an extreme level and now in a UV dayglo finish your eyes will bleed too.
What makes them so special?
It’s because they turn on faster. Sooner. They get turned on way quicker than any other transistors. Yeah, I got a favourite transistor, the shiny fragile amazing Mosfet. But the germanium, bipolar and somewhat easily startled and delicate, that loves getting turned on, is my most memorable transistor. Enjoy. She’s waiting for you, respectable and wonderful, the happiest of all semiconductors, the most delicate and perfect. Rock on.
Where the Fat Fuzz Factory has a 3 position toggle, The FF7 has a nine-position rotary switch and covers the enormous sonic territory, from earthshaking low frequencies to “dog whistle” (figuratively) high frequencies. The Fuzz Factory 7 also has a passive tone control (with its own switch) to roll off the high end if need be.
The pedals are all hand-wired and made in the USA, and they’ll take a 9V DC pedalboard power supply or a battery, generally drawing between 10mA and 50mA.
It looks great, I already own a hand-painted Myrold Fuzz Factory, but now I want one of these as well. That Zachary Vex sure knows how to tempt me.
