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.
1) Sub Level 1. Original Fuzz Factory™
2) Sub Level 2. Woof!
3) Sub Level 3.
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 pos-
sible, extending the battery life so long... ‘On’ current is less
than 4 mA... compare to the Tube Screamer (of course an
entirely different animal) at almost 40 mA. Unplug the input
jack when not in use to preserve battery life.
(These use “o’clock” notation — not spinal tap 1 to 11)
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.
Your Vexter Fat Fuzz Factory™is warranted for 1 year from date of purchase or 2 years if you send in your warranty card. Please visit http://zvex.com/website/repairs.html for any repair questions or more information.

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.
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
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.
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.
Many “incorrect”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 settings
