Zvex Effects Silicon Fuzz Factory Vertical

Maker: Zvex

Model: Silicon Fuzz Factory Vertical

Condition: New



The Silicon Fuzz Factory contains carefully selected silicon transistors that preserve the classic texture of the original germanium Fuzz Factory while providing temperature stabilization. This means that it can be used in very hot situations such as sunny outdoor stages and under hot lights where germanium fuzzes can change texture as their gain climbs wildly.

Packed with knobs that let you control everything from tight, radically fuzzy sounds that gate off instantly when you stop playing, to intermodulating oscillations that fight for control of your guitar as your notes decay, to shortwave radio sounds, ripping velcro and octave-like fuzz.

Pedal Dimensions (LxWxH):   4.3125" x 2.625" x 2"

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.

COMPRESS:  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 feedback fuzz, if you’re that kind. 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, if you’re that kind. This con- trol becomes meaningless when Compress is all the way right.

STAB:  Use all the way right. Do not adjust this control below 2:00, un- less 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. I don’t want to see anyone hurt. Unless you’re that kind. Don’t forget to memorize or write down your favorite settings.
