ZVEX Guitar Effects Pedals

A ZVEX guitar effects pedal is synonymous with only one thing. COOL. Mad scientist Zachary Vex is the founder of Z.Vex pedals all of which are HANDPAINTED at ZVex in Minneapolis. With names like SUPER HARD ON, FUZZ FACTORY, RINGTONE and WOOLY MAMMOTH. If you want to inject some serious tonal flavour and strangeitude into your effects pedal board ZVEX is where it’s at.

Latest ZVEX guitar effects

ZVex have announced new pedals at Namm 2012:

1. the SONAR – a tap tremelo pulser.
2. the DOUBLE ROCK  РJ Mascis of Dinoaur Jr. requested two BOX OF ROCK pedals in one unit.
3. the LOOP GATE – a “perfect” highly adjustable audio gate / bypass / with threshold, and sensitivity controls for custom effects fadeouts. The LOOP GATE also features a CHOP mode which intuitively “slices” your effect sound into rhythmic pulses. The LOOP GATE also responds dynamically to your playing, in case your effects pulse moves out of time with the rest of your band.
