But one of the most intriguing may be Z.Vex’s new Abbey Road Fuzz Factory 7 effect pedal, which boasts limited-edition printed art featuring characters from some of the company’s other stompboxes – there’s the Wooly Mammoth in place of John Lennon, and the Lo-Fi Loop Junky in place of Paul McCartney - crossing the street in homage to the iconic album cover.
