So, what is this "hold" feature that he mentions for the Super Seek Wah, Ringtone II, and Super Seek Trem?

The fat fuzz looks interesting..... I never really bonded with fuzzes because I always lost all of low end.... this could be cool....

Definitely on my mind. I love my regular Vexter series.

ooh. this is really cool. one of the reasons i didn't like the original FF so much was because of the lack of lows. i'm happy with my fuzz situation, but well played ZVEX. well played.

I'd get a fat fuzz if it were vexter, couldn't afford a $300 version just for hand painted goodness.

Depends on the company. Some things will hit the stores in the next few weeks. Others might be a few months.

I don't get the FF Doesnt have enough bottom end thing. I have 2004 one and it has plenty of low end.

My Vexter series Fuzz Factory has plenty of bottom end and chewy mids and crispy FUZZ. I never understood the 'lack of bottom end' complaint either. Mine sounds like an old Atari video game at times.

Hasn't ZVex done this quite a lot? They released Vexter versions of their most popular pedals for one thing. Sure, it's good business, but it wouldn't be if people didn't create demand for the pedals at a lower price.

Also, what about pedals like the Distortron and Mastotron, both of which are modifications of The Box of Rock and Wooly Mammoth respectively which directly addressed problems which people had with the origins and allowed those pedals to be used by a wider audience.

And not too long ago they added the ability to run their pedals with a power supply.

I think that ZVex has a good history of listening to customer feedback and adjusting their pedals to address it.

I mean, I get it with the Fuzz Factory, but why did they ever stop building them with a nice round low end like the earlier ones?

The late 90s ones and the early 00's Fuzz Factories are pretty devastating.
They should have just never stopped making them that way?

I'm interested but scared to see prices on the new seek pedals

good to see a fuzz factory with some bass finally. i've been building my own for years with bigger input/output electrolytics to fix the problem; now i can finally buy a genuine one as long as it's not SMD. . .

AHH! I just bought a Seek Trem 2 days ago!! Shipped yesterday. GREAT! Looks like I'll have to return it for the new SUPER SEEK TREM! I am excited yet frustrated at the same time LOL.

There goes 30 bucks in shipping.

Those new seeks are going to be EXPENSIVE.

I've thought about getting Vexter FF modded to reproduce the results when the plug is half in, which, in my case results in an octave drop in the oscillation and other such effects. It doesn't work in all knob positions, but it is very cool. I'm curious to see if this is in the neighborhood.

Yeah I wonder how much though. anything over 400 would be ridiculous!

Owning a FF and a skinpimp mkii, neck p/u, vol:10 tone:0, the ff just can't get "that" fat fat bassy booming tone.

The FF is an extremely cool pedal but I always thought the FF should be able to replicate any fuzz tone, so if this can give it that fat TB tone then it's definitely a major improvement, IMO.

Can't wait to check them out. Lovelovelove Z Vex stuff, he makes amazingly creative and musical pedals.

The upgraded sequencer pedals are blowing my mind. I love my Ooh Wah II, and that new unit makes me swoon.

The Fat Fuzz Factory pictured is actually MINE!!!
I paid for it weeks ago and am officially the first customer of it haha, I've been trying to keep myself from telling everyone here what the new feature was on the FF!
Woohoo!!

Will the new seek trem have the random function of the tremorama?

I have a late 90's FF and it's fat & juicy! It's what I was expecting the Fuzz Faces I have to be (excluding the oscillation) but they are not. My Fuzz Factory is my favorite germanium Fuzz Face type pedal I have played so far.

been wanting a new fuzz factory since i sold my clone a year ago (which I sold because it lacked bass)... I definitely want to try one of these

Been thinking of picking up a Mastotron, might have go this route instead!

Ooohh man. The oscillation on that Fat Fuzz Factory sounds so deep... I'm psyched about this! I wasn't even thinking about a FF before this but Zvex has my attention now. :Devil

Z Vex should hire me to demo his pedals at NAMM b/c that was a snooze fest demonstration of what I'm sure are probably awesome pedals.

I have a fuzz factory clone, and I may have to look into modding it for this.

I am into this. The fuzz face sound has been calling my name recently and the additional low end is quite enticing.

Hopefully I'm bumping the right thread... anyone anticipate this little "subs" mod from the FFF appearing on the Fuzz Probe? Or, for that matter, is it a difficult mod to make? It would be cool to have the Fuzz Probe available with that and a switch to bypass the copper strip...

A fella can dream, oui?

I've discovered that the Mastotron is picky about amps and will turn into a swamp with the wrong amp, like a Vox AC100. The Fuzz Factory conquers any amp. What I love about the Fuzz Factory is how well it records. On some settings, it can get dead silent when not playing. It really is one of the best FUZZ pedals ever, IMHO.
