Description & Specs

Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to introduce you to the Fuzz Factory 7TM, a new take on our original company flag ship Fuzz FactoryTM. The Fuzz Factory 7 features a 9-position rotary sub switch that opens the pedal up to an astounding new bottom end as well as thin, reedy fuzzes. This means the pedal can oscillate at much lower registers as well has higher ones. The fuzz works equally well with both guitar and bass signals. There's also a second stomp switch and an associated tone control. This passive tone control operates much the way the one on your guitar does, and when the stomp switch is activated it will let you roll off the high end of the fuzz sound so you can mellow out the tone if you like.

The controls of the Fuzz Factory 7TM are arranged in a circle around a Lexan window that reveals two rare 1956 Amperex black glass transistors. These rare and magnificent-sounding transistors are illuminated by LEDs when the pedal is engaged.

CONTROLS:

SUBS SWITCH: The Fuzz Factory 7 has two new knobs (when compared to the original Fuzz Factory.) One of these, located at the 5 o'clock position, is a nine-position rotary switch that controls the internal tone of the fuzz, getting fatter and subbier to the left and thinner and reedier to the right. This switch will obviously change the oscillation range of the pedal as well, when the other knobs are set to an oscillating or squealing tone. Around the middle you'll find the original Fuzz Factory setting.

KNOBS: Although the six main control knobs are named for the parameters over which they seem to have the most control, please don't hold us to it. They are controls for various operating levels and biases, and basically shape you a personalized fuzz.

VOL: Controls output volume.

GATE: Squelches noise after end of sustain. Turn to right to eliminate squeals, hiss and buzz, stopping just as they disappear, or use to tune in exact feedback pitch, if you're that kind. Turning to left opens gate.

COMP: Adds attack characteristic when turned to left, which gets softer to right, and suddenly pinches tone when all the way right. Also use to tune in fat feedbacky fuzz, if you're that kind. Lower the Stability and see what happens to this control.

DRIVE: Increases distortion when used as a "normal" fuzz, and adjusts feedback pitch and tonal thickness, if you're that kind. This control becomes meaningless when Compress is all the way right.

STAB: Use all the way right. Do not attempt to adjust this control below 2:00, unless you like your fuzz soft and squishy. Use to control feedback pitch. WARNING: Many "incorrect" settings on this pedal squeal. This may annoy the faint-hearted. If you use the example settings, you won't get hurt. We don't want to see anyone hurt. Don't forget to memorize or write down your favorite settings.

TONE: This knob is activated by the left stomp switch. It's a passive tone control that mellows out the high end of the Fuzz Factory 7, like a simple lo-pass filter.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
