    Man - I'm flat-out addicted! Went from an early SHO 8 or so years ago to . . nothing . . .and now:

    SuperDuper 2in1
    Octane 3
    Seek Trem
    OohWah2
    Lo-Fi Loop Junky

    I love all of them! Coolest frickin' pedals ever. Run a wah pedal into the Seek Trem at a sinewive, OohWah in time with a long delay (TTE preferably), hit a rich chord & slowly sweep the wah pedal - Heaven is indeed right here on Earth, kids!

    i disagree with the fuzz factory being the best. i just got a magic boy fuzz from lovepedal and it kick the fuzz factory right off my board. in saying that i do have a Super duper and want to get a loop junky. i like those. maybe even a seek trem too!

    Dude, the super hard on was unreal with the fender amp. Anyone use it with a Mesa, bogener, or other high gain amp

    Love the SHO (only one I've tried to date). Was just yesterday checking out his site to see what's new since I last visited:

    http://www.zvex.com/ringtone.html -- Very tasty sequencing ring modulator -- another one of a kind!

    And your iPod will never be the same with his oh-so-cool mini-tube amp: http://www.impamp.com/impvideo.html.

    His product videos are great -- well produced, interesting, gives you a great feel for the products, and his sense of humor is primo. I'd rather spend my evenings watching Zachary's videos than por. . .er. . .I mean. . uh. . .TV any day! :eek: Great stuff, cool guy.

    Yep Zvex pedals are pretty cool...

    Wah Probe (dang...)
    Fuzz Factory
    Ooh Wah
    Super Hard On
    Lofi Loop Junky

    They're all killer. If I had to pick a favorite, I'd be the Lofi... I love having a loop to practice with. When I'm on vacation, it's perfect for the hotel room. Gig wise the Wah Probe gets the most use, just genius in design.

    I just over a month ago purchased my first 2 Z-Vex Pedals:

    1) Fuzz Factory
    2) Super Hard On

    Both very good pedals the Fuzz Factory as Zach says can do wacky stuff!! I like to use the Fuzz Factory for my distortion.

    The SHO is my favourate ZVex pedal I've tried as when I use my Klon followed by the SHO it just sounds bang onto the Rolling Stones Keith Richards tone!!!

    6) Wah Probe
    and looking forward to the Ringtone (and impending poverty...)

    Sounds awesome on my road king; but a little "iffy" on my old Gibson Gold-tone.

    I really like the look of the new artwork on the ZVEX stuff. Just can't seem to find any pedal that is useful to me. Perhaps I should give the Box of Rocks a go when it comes out...

    Yeah that's the one I'm waiting for..then again on the face of it it's decidedly normal for a ZVEX pedal.

    Then again, I love the look of that little stereo amp for my iPOd or as a little monitor rig for the MBox-how cool are they!
