Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to introduce you to the Fat
Fuzz Factory, a take on our original company flag ship Fuzz
Factory. The Fat Fuzz Factory features a sub switch that
opens the pedal up to an astounding new bottom end. This
means the pedal can oscillate at much lower registers, giving
it some very interesting thunder broom synth qualities. Based
on our field reports, this new fatness lends itself particularly
well to the bass guitar, and rips equally well on guitar.

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.
Yes, folks, like all Z. Vex pedals, it’s as low current as possible,
extending the battery life so long... ‘On’ current is less
than 4 mA, like an Analog Man Sunface. Unplug the input
jack when not in use to preserve battery life.
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: 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
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: 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.
settings on this pedal squeal. This may annoy the faint-hearted.
If you use the example settings, you won’t get
hurt. We don’t want to see anyone hurt. Don’t forget to
memorize or write down your favorite setting.
All Z.Vex pedals use a 9V DC power supply with (−) polarity
on the middle pin (typical BossTM power supply). Using the
incorrect supply may damage your pedal. Obviously, you can
power your pedal with a good ole 9V battery, too.
