Joel Korte, the man behind Chase Bliss audio, was hired as an engineer at Zvex before branching out to start his own company in 2013, launching with the Warped Vinyl.
On his Facebook page, Zachary Vex wrote: “I hired a kid out of college to be my engineer at ZVEX Effects and he went on to start his own company, and now he’s about to release a product that combines our best efforts into one pedal.”
He said also to “expect it in about 2 months,” and that “it’s freaky. I’m proud.”

ZVEX Effects was one of the earlier ‘boutique’ brands to start, launching all the way back in 1994. The brand garnered fame with its great Fuzz Factory pedal, which could be one of the “best efforts” Vex is referring to – but we’ll have to wait and see how ZVEX gets incorporated into Chase Bliss when the “freaky” pedal arrives.
