Get that '59 sound! I've never really liked the sound of distorted Fender amps (this is Zack pontificating) except for my earliest amp, a blonde Fender Bassman with a 2X12 cab that just rip roared pure tinnitus joy. But there is one Fender that blows that one completely away, and that's a '59 Bassman. I guess the way it affected Jim Marshall was similar, back in the 60s, because he used it as the template for the first Marshall amps. So it's not out of the realm of possibility to imagine that the ZVEX Box of Rock, which accurately models the Marshall JTM45 amps, could be modded to sound like a '59 Bassman. Tommy Rehbein, our customer service specialist, tackled this particular concept and listened closely to a '59 Bassman for a few days and tweaked components in our BOR until he got that magical '59 Sound worked out... and now we're offering it to you. For one week only, you can purchase this new ZVEX device before it hits the stores, either as a gorgeous hand-painted version or a stickered Vexter version available well before the actual Vexters hit the market and at a very affordable price. Check out the video and see if this is a sound you've been searching for. It's pretty amazing, especially when you use your guitar's volume control to explore it's wide range of textures.
The "Everything on 10" sound of a classic Marshall. Volume, Tone, and Drive knobs. Lo/Hi Gain and Subs switches. Uses standard 9v- power. his pedal is a modified version of our Box of Rock’s Distortron Engine. The improvements include a gain boost switch for added sizzle and a sub control switch with 3 levels. The amounts were carefully selected to reduce “flubbiness” that occurs when using amps with heavy low-end response. It would be immodest of me to suggest that this ZVEX effect is the greatest distortion pedal of all time, but it probably is. Try it last in your chain, and beat it up with your other effects... it stacks like a dream.
ZVEX Super Hard On NEW Boost / Overdrive Vexter Series - The Super Hard On, or ‘SHO’ as we fondly refer to it, is an ultra-transparent boost that goes from unity gain to a whooping 60 times the original size (watch out!), while adding a delightful high-end clarity with its 5 million ohm input impedance. This is the perfect preamp pedal. The "Crackle Okay" volume knob is a negative-feedback control styled after classic 60's recording console inputs.
So super and so duper! The Super Duper 2-IN-1™ has two of our infamous Super Hard On™s in one small box, plus a Master volume control that lets you use it as an overdrive/distortion with any input volume. The two channels can give any amount of gain, from a soft bluesy boost in two stages, to a crunchy rock level, to a wild sustaining beast.
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. A wah-wah pedal with no rocker pot to wear out, it uses a proximity sensing radio transmitter so you can achieve super fast wah action and chewy sounds (pulling your foot quickly away), and it even has a Super Hard On™ built in so you can drive it to any volume you want.
ZVEX's take on an SVT tube head's warmth and grind at high levels. Volume, Tone, and Drive dials. Toggle for Bright/Dark voicings. Uses standard 9v- power. This is our take on capturing what is arguably the first and last word in all tube amp distortion for bass. The debate always starts and ends with the Ampeg SVT™. The harder you dig the more it growls. The connection between your hands and that kind of natural tube distortion is primal, immediate, powerful, and musical.
Five-knob fuzz using two new old-stock sixties germanium transistors. A new take on the flagship Fuzz Factory pedal that adds a sub switch for new levels of bottom end depth. Great on guitar or bass. *Z.Vex handpainted artwork may vary.
