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...

Magnetic Effects: Satellite

Magnetic Effects out of London, England have a great reputation for building hand wired effects, one at a time. We here at Pedal Finder never miss an opportunity to jump on telling the world about their new offerings every time we hear something is about to be released. In the past we’ve talked about their Solar Bender (actually the update of their Solar Bender – an MKII clone), their Double Feature (a combo circuit with a...

New Builder: Ghost Effects Pedals

When a builder posts on Facebook about a pedal they built at one time and mention, “This is a bit annoying, double the price that I sold them for originally” it really makes you stop and take a closer look.

On December 1, 2015 Christian Terjesen of Adventure Audio began a Kickstarter campaign for the Whateverb – a reverb pedal “capable of a wash so thick it could bathe everyone in the world twice over.” On December 3, 2015 Christian wrote an update that simply said, “Jeeze Louise, We’re Funded!” By the end of the campaign he had raised a little over $8,000 and headed off to turn his 14 months of...

Dr. No Evil Motherfuzzer

I noticed that the Dr. No Evil Motherfuzzer was popping up in the news again. This was a pedal that came out around August of 2014. It was a germanium fuzz put together by Dr. No in collaboration with Dutch guitar player Pablo van de Poel – a shredder of some note from the Netherlands. The joint venture on this pedal started around 2012 – two years of working to create, “the best Fuzz of the universe.” By all accounts they succeeded...

Midnight Amplification: Mynd Driver

Somewhere out in Brisbane Australia is a very, very busy man named Nic Belor. Nic is the owner/operator of Midnight Amplification Devices – a company that creates custom effects and amplifiers. Unlike many builders who chase a pedal down and then knock out a bunch to push out to market, MAD makes all devices to order in a small batch format.  So, depending on the current build list he has in front of him, it may take awhile...
