I wanna love the Zvexes, especially the Fuzz Factory (which I just bought but will be returning soon). But I just can't get around the horizontal pedals and their lack of toe space for live show stomping. I find I always kick the knobs...
I have this problem with Catalinbread's smaller pedals. But with zvex ones I don't have the problem because Zvex puts taller switches on and find it a lot easier to stomp on the switch without making contact with the knobs.
I'm with you re. the knob kickage.
Zachary feels otherwise
Someone has suggested unscrewing the knob, and putting a small gasket around the shaft and then remounting the knob so that it forces down on the gasket, thereby minimizing whatever "drift" your foot might have originally caused.
+1 on the Probe idea, or...
Rehouse them in another box. Keep the original in case you want to sell it. It will remain pristine. Use a generic Hammond box that has the layout you like and enjoy the ZVex sound.
i really like my fuzz factory, it justs has so many type of sounds... the pedal still amazes me if your into the basic fuzz sound go for a big muff of a fuzz face but if your more if you like to play and out of the box the fuzz factory is a must.. ahhhhhhhhhh i love this pedal..
