  1. Zvex Super Duper 2 in 1
    $199.00

    INTRODUCTION:
    Gentlemen/women, start your engines. This pedal is so dangerous that I’m sure I’ll be getting a lot of complaint
    emails that people have blown up their amps using it. So let’s just start this off by saying I WARNED YOU TO BE
    CAREFUL. When using this pedal, start off slow, and monitor your amp for potential damage. Don’t have too much
    fun! OK, have too much fun, but don’t blow up your amp in the process. Unless that’s what you want, of course, and
    well, gosh darn it, it’s your right. Good ol’ Pete Townsend did it. Well, at least he poked his speakers out. All right, I’ll
    try to stay on track here.
    Ahem. The SUPER-DUPER 2-IN-1™ has two of my infamous but rather delightful Super Hard-On™ pedals in one
    small box. Also, in this SUPER-DUPER 2-IN-1™ is a Master Volume control that lets you use it as an overdrive/distortion with any output volume. My my! How conventional, you say! Well, suffice to say, if it weren’t there, you’d go
    deaf with both of those channels cranked up. This pedal is dangerously loud. Don’t do what I did, and lean over in
    front of your speaker cabinet while turning it up. Ouch. Dang.

  2. Zvex Tremolo Probe Painted
    $319.00
    The Tremolo Probe is a kind of cross between a theremin volume control and a Super Hard-On. There is a 3-5/8" square copper plate mounted on a chunk of 3/8" clear acrylic that passes over the top of the pedal housing, angles down to sharp turn, and goes back to the pedal. Under the whole mess is a 3 5/8" by 7" sheet of aluminum that provides shielding from annoying ground effects and wires under the stage. It also serves to protect the knob from being knocked off if you drop it on that end... and it makes a nice toe chopper if you are barefoot, so (legal disclaimer:) DO NOT DROP THIS PEDAL ON YOUR FOOT! IT IS HEAVY AND HAS VERY POINTY CORNERS THAT COULD DAMAGE LIVING CREATURES AND FINE HARDWOOD FLOORING. ALSO, YOU COULD BREAK SOMETHING. Like your dog. Learn More
  3. Zvex Wah Probe Painted
    $329.00
    This effect is a natural continuation of the probe series... the fuzz factory probe, the volume control/manual tremolo probe, and now a wah. It's probably exactly what you think it is: a theremin-style antenna controlling a wah, getting brighter as your foot approaches. It has one extra feature, however. There's a Super Hard-On boost circuit in front of the wah, with a knob to set the exact level of boost for driving your wah sound. It can be turned up high enough to make the wah crack up a little for that "something's gonna blow" sound. It gets pretty darn loud! Learn More
  4. Zvex Lo-Fi Junky
    $219.00
    OVERVIEW Hello, and welcome to the world of the Instant Lo-Fi Junky™. Any of you who’ve heard the sound of the Lo-Fi Loop Junky™will understand this pedal immediately... its purpose is to imitate that sound in real time. Joel Korte, the extraordinary engineer behind this new device, was able to create a combination of THAT chip compression, Belling bucketbrigades, and ultra low-current National Semiconductor op-amp filters to exquisitely copy the texture and feel of the original Lo-Fi into this new and extraordinary box, adding some new sounds that have never been heard before.

  5. Zvex Lo-Fi Loop Junky
    $369.00
    How does it sound? Some people compare it to a warped, damaged 45-rpm record. Some say that the compression is immaculate, while some say it destroys any concept of the original dynamic. Some say that the noise is intolerable… some say it’s as precious as snow in the middle of nowhere. Some people have no taste. Lucky for me, taste is not the issue. I can promise one thing… your direct guitar will sound impeccable. I can’t promise that the loop will sound good… you’ll have to make some adjustments to your concept of “good” to be sure of that. I can promise that the loop will be different from any sampler you’ve heard. Learn More
  6. Zvex Fuzz Probe
    $219.00

    OVERVIEW
    The Fuzz Probe is a kind of cross between a theremin and
    a fuzz factory. There is a 3 5/8” antenna plate mounted on a
    chunk of 3/8” clear acrylic that passes over the top of the pedal housing, angles down to sharp turn, and goes back to the
    pedal. Under the whole mess is a 3 5/8” by 7” sheet of aluminum that provides shielding from annoying ground effects and
    wires under the stage. It also serves to protect the knobs from
    being knocked off if you drop it on them... and it makes a nice
    toe chopper if you are barefoot, so (legal disclaimer:) DO NOT
    DROP THIS PEDAL ON YOUR FOOT! IT IS HEAVY AND
    HAS VERY POINTY CORNERS THAT COULD DAMAGE
    LIVING CREATURES AND FINE HARDWOOD FLOORING.
    ALSO, YOU COULD BREAK SOMETHING. Like your dog.

  7. Zvex Fuzz Factory
    $179.00
    This is a five-knob fuzz using two new old-stock sixties germanium transistors. The circuit is not modeled after any classic fuzz design, but should have been around when Leary was still lucid. Although the five knobs are named for the parameters over which they seem to have the most control, please don't hold me to it. They are controls for various operating levels and biases, and basically shape you a personalized fuzz. Learn More
  8. Zvex Distortron
    $149.00

    Overview
    The Distortron™is the gifted little sister to the Z.Vex “Box of
    Rock”. It is highly specialized to simulate the “everything on
    10” sound of a classic Marshall ® JTM45 non-master-volume
    amplifier. You may use the Distortron™effectively with many
    different amplifiers, but to get the sound I heard when I designed it, try it through an old-school non-master volume Marshall at least once. You may use your guitar’s volume control to
    adjust for the exact amount of distortion you need, all the way
    down to very clean and clear with most drive settings when the
    gain switch is set to “Lo.” Let’s go over the controls:

  9. Zvex Box of Metal
    $219.00

    Overview: The Box of Metal (tm) is an aggressive high-gain pedal with a highly-effective built-in switchable gate which dramatically reduces noise and unwanted feedback. It is available in Vexter (2-year warranty) and hand-painted (lifetime warranty-my lifetime) versions. Its gain and tonal characteristics are somewhat similar to high-gain tube amplifiers that have been the staple of hard rock and metal sounds since the 80's. On the right, there is a true- bypass switch with an indicator LED to bypass the entire effect. On the left is a gate switch which is only effective when the pedal is on (the gate cannot be used separately.) When the gate's LED (on the left side of the pedal) is ON, the gate will be active whenever the pedal is turned on. The gate is very useful for cleaning up any noise between palm-muted chords and lead phrases, but may be switched off to initiate feedback or to stretch out soloed notes that are fading into noise. Switching off and on the gate is silent so the gating action of the pedal can instantly be changed during any part of the performance to fluidly integrate soloing and palm-muted chords.
