    Product Description

    The Fuzz Factory is ZVEX's flagship pedal, and a true modern classic. Putting the brand on the map back in the mid-to-late '90s, the Fuzz Factory was popularised by Muse's Matt Bellamy; using the ferocious Fuzz Factory to achieve his otherworldly high-gain tones. In fact, he loves the Fuzz Factory so much that he has this pedal's unique circuit built into most of his custom Manson guitars!

    Packed with a flexible control-set that lets you achieve anything from tight, glitchy gated fuzz tones to inter-modulating oscillations that fight for control of your guitar as your notes decay - the ZVEX Fuzz Factory can be dialled in to offer a multitude of crazy, saturated fuzz textures.

    Unparalleled Control

    Despite its small form-factor, the ZVEX Fuzz Factory has a bunch of tone-warping knobs that enable precise sonic manipulation. 'Volume' is self-explanatory, but the others are far more idiosyncratic and have a dramatic effect on the pedal's overall sound:

    • Gate: Squelches noise after the end of a sustained note. Turn to the 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 the gate.
    • Compress: Adds attack characteristic when turned to left, which gets softer to the right, and suddenly pinches tone when all the way right. Also use to tune in fat feedback fuzz. 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. This control becomes meaningless when 'Compress' is all the way right.
    • Stability: Use all the way right. Do not adjust this control below 2:00, unless you like your fuzz soft and squishy. Use to control feedback pitch.


    • Voltage: 9V (Centre Negative), Battery Included
    • Current Draw: 3mA
    • Pedal Dimensions (LxWxH):  4.70" x 2.38" x 1.82"

    Great sounds. Sometimes is a bit hard to handle, probably too trebles, but good sound.

    Exactly what you should expect, it's temperamental but that's half the fun tweaking it to recreate the sounds you bought it for. I really liked the custom paint I wasn't expecting.

    Weird and wonderful. It’s a fine pedal though I was surprised the graphic wasn’t the one pictured when buying

    What a fantastic pedal ! Even if you aren't a Matt Bellamy fan you will always be able to find a place on your pedalboard for this little monster. The principle behind this pedal is infinitely customisable fuzz sounds, all the dials interact differently with each other depending on how far you turn them so there is no 'correct' way to set it up. The only issue with that is, unless you have the time and patience to sit there for hours while it screams at you to find a sound that you like, it won't sound good (depending on your point of view of course). It is not really a plug and play kind of pedal, although the instruction manual comes with a few suggested starting points for different fuzz sounds and the internet also has some settings for specific songs - i.e Plug In Baby. All that being said it's the best fuzz pedal I have ever used and the fun factor is priceless.
