Custom Builds

Consider me your Pedalsmith

I build everything from scratch to fit into a custom size Die-Cast Aluminum Enclosure, which can be Painted, Engraved, Acid Etched, Decaled, or left bare.
If you have a schematic, upload it below ūüėČ

I make my circuit boards out of durable copper laminate which is then sealed with a tinning solution.  Circuits are thoroughly inspected during the prototyping process, and populated with the highest fidelity components available

Prototypes that pass inspection will be put up for sale, but the idea is to make things that are unique, and not mass produced.  So your personal preferences are what makes each pedal stand out above the rest.

Gristleizer (In The Works)
This is an experimental effect used by the band Throbbing Gristle back in the early 80's If you dial the bias voltage in just right, you get a very thick, gristly distortion This can also be used as a tremolo-like effect by adjusting the speed and shape knobs More info here: The Gristleizer

You can also inquire about rehousing your effects here as well.  I try to stock enclosures of all sizes, but I can use any metal enclosure for custom fits or multiple effect configurations
