Z. Vex Effects has introduced a new vertical version of their Vexter Fuzz Factory pedal. Formerly configured as a horizontal pedal, the new VFF will feature the same effects and circuitry in a more pedalboard-friendly setup.
It utilizes two new old-stock ’60s germanium transistors, but that doesn’t mean it’s a vintage sound. “The circuit is not modeled after any classic fuzz design, but should have been around when Leary was still lucid,” Vex writes. “Although the five knobs are named for the parameters over which they seem to have the most control, please don’t hold me to it. They are controls for various operating levels and biases, and basically shape you a personalized fuzz.” The pedal’s five knobs are Volume, Gate, Comp, Drive, and Stab.
The Z. Vex Effects Vertical Vexter Fuzz Factory is available now for $199.
