Z.Vex Fuzz Probe

£330, zvex.com

Zachary Vex has created hand-made – and bizarre – effects pedals for the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Muse and Nine Inch Nails.

The Fuzz Probe's one of Z.Vex's more outlandish creations – a fuzztone pedal controlled by a voltage-sensitive copper plate that you can manipulate like a Theremin.

Z.Vex also produces Wah Probes and Tremelo Probes using the same control setup. If the price looks a bit steep, a cheaper Vexter Series version (minus the hand-painted finish) can be had for £210.
