The Z-Machine is my version of the 60’s Germanium Zonk Machine fuzz...


A close cousin to the MKI Tonebender, the Zonk Machine is the lean, aggressively stringy counterpart to the MKI. Plays especially well with hot pickups but equally at home with single coils. Compared to the low-midrange emphasis on a MKI, the Zonk excels at high and high-mid tones. If you dig thin and spitty fuzz with lots of sustain and a gating artifacts, or you find a MKI has a bit too much bloom with your setup you’ll love the Z-Machine. Built on the same point to point eyelet board as my MKI Bender, the Z-Machine uses the circuit from the Zonk to recreate its classic tones in a smaller footprint with modern features like a center negative 9v power jack and LED indicator. NOS capacitors and Germanium transistors are used throughout, specific components are subject to availability, though I am able to make a ripping Zonk with a variety of caps and transistors.


Available in two Color options of 1590bb enclosure, Silver Hammered or Mystery. Mystery color will be unique and different, a one off/one of a kind option, artists choice. If you have a specific desire for the enclosure or knobs be sure to email me first with your ideas, otherwise I will make you something unique and rad!

  • Please Note:

Center negative 9v Power jack (ISOLATED only) and 9v battery clip come standard with true bypass and LED indication. Enclosure color and knobs are subject to availability. Please allow 4-6 weeks to complete your pedal.
