Today I wanted to talk about the ZVex Instant Lo-Fi Junky. I came across a great video by Rock n Roll Vintage where they go into great detail of what this pedal can do. I’m a big fan of Rock n Roll Vintage out of Chicago (sort on my bucket lists of guitar shops to check out). The ZVex Instant Lo-Fi Junky is an interesting pedal providing cool effects with modulated, warbled and compressing effected signal. Want to tweak something up? This might be the pedal.
Here is the official description of the ZVex Instant Lo-Fi Junky:
Hello, and welcome to the world of the Instant Lo-Fi JunkyTM. Any of you who’ve heard the sound of the Lo-Fi Loop JunkyTM will understand this pedal immediately… its purpose is to imitate that sound in real time. Joel Korte, the extraordinary engineer behind this new device, was able to create a combination of THAT chip compression, Belling bucket-brigades, and ultra low-current National Semiconductor op-amp filters to exquisitely copy the texture and feel of the original Lo-Fi into this new and extraordinary box, adding some new sounds that have never been heard before.
