The Zvex Ringtone is an extremely cool and unique effect for your guitar and any other electronic instrument. It's, not so basically, a spacey, chorusy, delay effect. You can definitely tell that it's a product of the late 60's! It's very rare and was made for a brief period of time in the late 1960's. There is also a smaller version of the Zvex Ringtone , but this review is for the larger version. It has 1/4" jacks on the front panel to make all of your connections and it isn't rackmountable as it sits like a mini guitar amp head.


There isn't much involved with the Zvex Ringtone , although I can't remember all of the controls off the top of my head. I don't think though that there's much more control beyond setting the volume and setting the amount of the effect that you'd like as it pretty much does it's thing. Good luck finding a manual, but you don't need it.


The sound of the Zvex Ringtone is definitely unlike any other effects that I've used before. Sure, it sounds a bit like chorus, a bit like reverb and delay, and a bit of something else kind of weird, but usually you'll hear those effects coming together from separate places and not an all in one like the Zvex Ringtone is. It sounds great on electric guitar of course, but probably would be cool on some vintage keys or anything else that you want to sound super spacey.


Although you guys out there probably won't be able to find a Fender Zvex Ringtone since they are seldom seen, it's still a cool effect to know about just in case! It'll add space and depth to your sound and is perfect for getting that super spacey guitar tone. Of course there are and easier ways to do it these days with digital effects, but the Zvex Ringtone has a special quality you won't fine elsewhere.
