ZVEX Fuzz Factory USA Vexter-Series:
The USA Vexter-Series Fuzz Factory is identical in construction to the newest
hand-painted Fuzz Factories, including a DC power jack and on/off LED indicator. Because it is hand silk-screened instead of hand-painted, it is avaiable it at a somewhat reduced price.
This is a five-knob fuzz using two new old stock (NOS) sixties germanium transistors. The circuit is not modeled after any classic fuzz design, but should have been around when Leary was still lucid. Although the five knobs are named for the parameters over which they seem to have the most control, please don't hold us to it. They are controls for various operating levels and biases, and basically shape you a personalized fuzz.
- VOLUME: Output level.
- GATE: Squelches noise after end of sustain. Turn to right to eliminate squeals, hiss and buzz, stopping just as they disappear, or use to tune in exact feedback pitch, if you're that kind. Turning to left opens gate.
- COMP (compress): Adds attack characteristic when turned to left, which gets softer to right, and suddenly pinches tone when all the way right. Also use to tune in fat feedbacky fuzz, if you're that kind. 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, if you're that kind. This control becomes meaningless when Compress is all the way right.
- STAB (stability): Use all the way right. Do not attempt to adjust this control below 2:00, unless you like your fuzz soft and squishy. Use to control feedback pitch.

HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 8/3/2008:
"it sounds wonderful. the perfect fuzz. i like how its not based on any of the usual fuzz pedals and that it stands on its own."
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 9/22/2006:
"it can be noisy if u dont adjust the gate and compression properly but if u do it's absolutely silent... then unleashes the most unholy wall of fuzzz when u play something then somplete pin drop quiet when u stop... amazing ...it will sustain a note for ever with feedback and harmonics sweeping in and out ...it's a bit pricey but really worth every penny"
