Zvex's Fuzz Factory 7 is an updated version of the Flag Ship Fuzz Factory. Fuzz Factory 7 has a 9 way rotary which gives the pedal an amazing new bottom end as well as thin, reedy fuzzes. This allows the pedal to oscillate at much lower registers as well as higher ones. The fuzz works equally well with both guitar and bass signals. There is also an additional stomp switch with associated tone control, operating the same way as the one on your guitar. When activated, the stomp switch allows you to roll off the high end of the fuzz sound so you can mellow out the tone. Controls are arranged around two rare 1956 Amperex black glass transistors, which are illuminated by LED's when pedal is engaged.


  • Subs Switch: The Fuzz Factory 7 has two new knobs, when compared to the original Fuzz Factory. One of the knobs is a nine-position rotary switch that controls the internal tone of the fuzz, getting fatter and subbier to the left and thinner and reedier to the right. This switch has the ability to change the oscillation range of the pedal too, when the other knobs are set to an oscillating or squealing tone. The original fuzz factory setting can be found around the middle.

  • Knobs: The six main control knobs are named for the parameters over which they seem to have the most control, however they are controls for various operating levels and biases, allowing you to shape your own personalized fuzz.
  • Volume: Controls output volume.
  • Gate: Squelches noise after end of sustain. Turning to the right eliminates squeals, hiss and buzz, stopping just as they disappear. You could either use this to tune in exact feedback pitch if you like. Turning to the left opens gate.
  • Comp: Adds attack characteristic when turned to the left, which gets softer to the right, and suddenly pinches tone when all the way to the right.
  • Drive: Increases distortion when used as a "normal" fuzz, and adjusts feedback pitch and tonal thickness.
  • Stab: Use all the way right. Do not attempt to adjust this control below 2:00 unless you like your fuzz soft and squishy. This is used to control feedback pitch.
  • Tone: This knob is activated by the left stomp switch. It's a passive tone control which mellows out the high end of the Fuzz Factory 7, like a simple lo-pass filter.
  • Battery: Like all Z.Vex pedals, it's as low current as possible to extend the battery life. 'On' current is generally less than 10 mA but may be as high as 50mA on some settings. Unplug the input jack when not in use to preserve battery life.
  • Power Supply: All Z.Vex pedals use a 9V DC power supply with (-) polarity on the middle pin. Using the incorrect supply may damage your pedal.
