    They are like CRACK!

    I love them, absolutely hilariously fun pedals.

    I just bought my bass player a Wooly Mammoth for his wedding........

    Being a sound engineer and all that he tried to be "skeptical" when trying it out.

    30 seconds later he just had the biggest **** eating grin on his face...........


    I bought a Machine finally...........Silly pedals, in a good way!

    My friend Wingwalker talked me into a Box of Rock. I went andd Demo'd one and it might be what I was looking for. Like having an OCD in a small, smooth little tone box - AND it has an independent boost channel that acts like a second pedal free for the price of one.

    Best part? Battery lasts forever.

    The box of rock is wonderful. box of medal isn't good for newish metal, but rather Sabbath-style riffery. i love how useful these are. i love the weird pedals, like the Fuzz Probe and Seek-Wah, too. They really help the creative juices get flowing.

    First one I got was the 'Machine'. Nothing else like it.

    The SHO has been the best addition to my rig in the past year. My wife just bought me a Wah-probe for my Bday - My pedalboard is having too much fun. :dude

    Funny, I gave my friends a Fuzz Factory for their wedding. I wouldn't do that with any other pedals, but the Z Vex made sense.

    They are certainly addicting. I've owned the seek trem, ooh wah, fuzz factory, box of rock, lofi loop junky, and octane 3. the LFLJ remains.

    i've owned 3 super dupers (could easily have a 4th, or SHO), 3 Fuzz Factory's (3rd arrived in the mail yesterday! Not going anywhere, this one's the keeper) and one Box Of Rock that i could easily call my first boutique pedal. And it's not leaving, ever.
    Also, i've been dying for a Lo-Fi. Not sure i would use it enough to justify it, but i do love ambient, spacey music, so i am naturally attracted to it.

    Oh yeah, and i would have owned a Nano, but there was a dealer f-up. I've let the GAS pass on that one :eek:.

    cheers, to innovation, to singularity, to individuality.

    this has to be THE BEST pedal in his line-up. I love his stuff, and I know the box of rock vexter is selling well, but the SHO is THE top dog, IMHO.

    Man, if the BOR had a bass control, I would own it again. It's a bit much with humbuckers into fenders.

    Great pedals, I have the Seek Trem and the Ooh wah. Speaking of which I really need to have Cusack mod them for tap tempo one of these days thanks for reminding me.

    These pedals are stupid expensive, I don't see why. I would never gig with a 300 dollar pedal in a bar.

    I keep my SHO on at all times. I've really been wanting a Fuzz Factory as of late

    i gotta say... you guys have/are the most generous people ever. my wife will probably not be getting me a pedal, even though she's aware of my love of them. i doubt she knows what i'd want too... i know she's not dumb enough to get one of the pedals they sell at target, but i doubt she'd know to get me a zvex.


    as for a best man to groom gift... i gotta go claim that from my best man. gd.

    I quite like several of the ZVex offerings... particularly the BoR.
