Item #:PTZF2

Paradox TZF2 is not currently in production.

If you are interested in buying one directly from Foxrox, click above and get on the list! I'm considering a final batch of 100 x TZF2's. Before I shell out $$ on enclosures and parts, etc.. I want an idea of how many people are seriously interested.

If enough people get on the list I'll pull the trigger and get them going. You'll be notified that production has begun. As they are built you'll have the option to buy based on when you got on the list. There is no obligation on your part other than getting on the list!

If I do a final batch of Paradox TZF2's, they will be made in a different color than the ones that out there. Still to be determined. Suggestions are welcome!

Paradox TZF2 is an analog through-zero-flanger geared towards live performance. Organic time-based modulation with interactive sweep control and warm analog processing produce flanging sounds that you’ve heard in recordings and in nature but have never been able to recreate. 

Paradox TZF2 is an updated version of the original Foxrox Paradox TZF, which was in production between 2002 and 2006. The original Paradox TZF was the very first flanger pedal capable of achieving a through-zero sweep. Since its inception, it has been considered by many to be the finest flanger ever created. Paradox TZF2 is a smaller, slimmed down version of the original Paradox TZF design. Some features were taken away and replaced with features geared towards live performance. These include Envelope control and Ramping for speed and flange point, along with a wide range LFO. Both Positive and Negative mixing is available for creating the through-zero sweep in all its glory.

Voltage Requirement - Power Adaptor Sold Separately
Foxrox offers an 18V DC power adaptor, which is available on this site.  If you prefer to purchase an adaptor on your own, the Dunlop ECB-004 is a very common 18V DC adaptor. 

Volume - Various flanging settings can cause a drop or boost in volume. The Volume control makes it easy to get the right level and there is plenty of available boost.
Flange Mix - Control how subtle or intense you want the effect to be. All the way down for no effect, all the way up for maximum effect.
Width - Control how wide you want the LFO sweep to be. All the way down for no sweep.
Manual - Manually sweep through the flanging spectrum. Use it to control the LFO sweep when Width is not at max. Also used to set the lowest flange point when using the Manual ramping and Envelope control.
Speed - Control how fast the sweep is. At the slowest setting the speed gets extremely slow - over 4 minutes for a single cycle! Controls the slowest setting when using the Speed ramping feature. 
Speed LED - Green LED varies in brightness to indicate LFO speed.
Envelope - Use the dynamics of the input signal to control flange point. This feature requires special care to the get the best results, but it's well worth it.
Vibrato: The Polarity switch now has a Center position. Select it and you get a warm pitch vibrato. Speed ramping sounds great with vibrato! Note: The first 100 TZF2 pedals did not have this switch.
Ramp selector switch - Select between Speed ramping and Manual ramping.
  • Speed Ramping: Step on the momentary Ramp switch and the LFO quickly speeds up to the maximum speed. Release the Ramp switch and it slowly ramps back down to the speed selected by the Speed control.
  • Manual Ramping: Step on the Ramp switch and the flange point quickly rises to its maximum setting. Release and it slowly returns to the setting selected by the Manual control.

when I play this one, I am transported into side 2 and 3 of Electric Ladyland. Using it on recordings does some weird aural hallucinations

There is no question in my mind that this is the finest flanger I've ever owned or have ever used. It nails the whole studio tape decks flange thing perfectly. Warm and organic sounding flange tones that I haven't been able to duplicate with any other flanger. Precise control over many different parameters allows me to get the desired effect I'm looking for in every situation I've encountered. The pedal itself is built like a Sherman tank! All I can say is Dave makes incredible pedals and he stands behind everything he makes. I also own a CC2 and a Aqua vibe and both are amazing sounding effects. Sincerely, TZF #164 Joe D
