    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....

    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.

    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?

    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. . .
