Zvex in the UK

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by fenderbassabuse, Jun 30, 2005.


  1. Right now I need a really ott fuzz, that keeps bottom end, but is also really thick. Would I be correct into guessing that a wooly mammoth would be a good idea? If so where could I get one from in the UK, that is near london (preferably)

    Many thanks

    Near London? I don't think there is any...go to www.zvex.com to check for dealers. There's Mansons that I know of (Devon i think), and they're all expensive.

    This pedal isn't for everyone. You really want to try it before buying.

    There is a shop on Denmark st that carries the zvex range - you definitely need to try before you buy. I got one and promptly sold it in favour of my old RAT.

    Http://www.musicground.com are the London ZVex dealer.

    When I've bought stuff from http://www.soundsgreat.com they've given me 48 hours to decide to keep it or not. If you return it in mint condition they'll refund you. This way you can try it with your gear. Ring them and ask for Rick. Check the return period and you are good to go.
     
  7. Cool cheers guys. Slightly off topic, but what does a Proco rat sound like on bass? is it really thick and dirty (similar to hysteria by muse but maybe a little less)? I have been tempted by one for a while and may be the answer to my quest. How about an EHX double muff?

    My impressions of the Woolly Mammoth were that it's somewhat industrial sounding - definitely an ugly fuzz. For my needs I prefer a Russian EH Big Muff, which are available all over the place and vary masses in 'quality' so some are better suited to bass than others. The Big Muff does those funk fuzz tones nicely as well as producing that obscene dirty roar which takes things up a notch from my Fulltone BassDrive at full blast.

    The mammoth sounds pretty close to that IMO.
