Do You DIY Effects Pedals?

Working at Pedal Finder and being around everything pedal, day in and day out, really starts to get your mind into new spaces. Sure, prior to getting into Pedal Finder, I was a fan of effects pedals.

Oddfellow Effects Caveman Overdrive V2

I’m pretty sure it was winter NAMM 2014 when the original Caveman Overdrive from Oddfellow Effects walked out onto the red carpet. The attention was pretty much instantaneous.

New Builder: Effectrode

We’ve really been working away at getting new builders into our Pedal Finder Database. This is a lot of fun for us because we get to do a bit of research on builders that we wouldn’t normally do in our everyday lives.

This is the case with Effectrode and the audio design...
