New Builder: Butcher Pedals

Back in 2010 a fellow named Jeff Butcher started Maritime Analog. During this time Jeff created a wide range of effects from fuzzes (SSB, Storm Surge and Windjammer) to more utilitarian pedals like ABY’s and everything in-between. In 2015, Jeff decided to pack up the name Maritime Analog and roll out his new identity as Butcher Pedals. The proverbial reset left this builder (located on the east coast of Canada in North Sydney,...

Casa Distortion: PEDALpUNK!

So let me just admit right off the bat – the PEDALpUNK! by Casa Distortion isn’t a pedal in the traditional sense. You’re not going to put in on your board and  it doesn’t have a foot switch. So in terms of our daily mission here at Pedal Finder, we are straying a bit from the wheelhouse. However, the PEDALpUNK is something many musicians could use in their recording world to bring some much needed ‘fresh...
