If it has the lo-fi junky toanz and you could use the plate to control dtime, repeats, mix, a filter, or whatever else zvex can come up with (via switch).

Or a seek delay, where each pot would control the volume of each individual repeat, so you could get more interesting repeats.

Maybe he could combine both?!

But he won't...because he's Vex and he's a stubborn curmudgeon.

Ok, so I was a bit busy for a while and neglected this thread...here's where "the habit" is at for now....

First, just the sparkle lineup:

And this with the other two standard paint jobs...would love to "upgrade" to sparkle Loop Junky, but they are SO rare it is just silly.

what would I still like? Probably a Seek Trem again...I've had two before and it isa fun pedal. Last night I got Seek Wah GAS too for a few moments.

It never ends.... :fp:

I have fond memories of the Fuzz Factory when I first got into pedals oh so long ago. I had a copyediting professor in college who was always so rigid until he started telling me about he bought one of the probe pedals.

Not ideal if you want a traditional wah, obviously, but they really are "better" (more useable) than normal wahs IMHO. But then again I've only ever had a crybaby as a normal wah so what do I know?

I have just had zvex no. 5 turn up. Wah Probe, Fuzz probe, Ooh Wah II and Ringtone... just got the Wah Probe with SHO built in. Money no object and I would literally buy one of every handpainted pedals he's ever done - and the Candela of course!

I don't really like regular wahs, so this i perfect for me. :)
It's was just one of those "let me get this for the collection" moments.

Happy to see some ZVex love, it's been a while.

I was watching the Scottish Cup Final at the weekend because I must hate myself and the sight of green Scotland flags everywhere reminded me I had a green union jack Fuzz Factory which has been off my board for a couple of years in place of a Muff put there when I was obviously craving some normality. 13 years I've had a Fuzz Factory and a) I still have no idea how to use it and b) it still sounds absolutely incredible. So much fun.

I just picked up a Super-Duper 2 in 1 as well! I am very hopeful having spent some time with the Wah Probe II with the wah off so just SHO basically.

I know I'm not really helping, but there's one on ebay right now. ;)



On another note, this one showed up yesterday.
