New Builder: Iret Guitar Enhancements

A member submitted a new pedal from Iret Guitar Enhancements. This is a company out of India that lays claim to being “the first acoustic technology student’s start-up. Manufacturing premium stompboxes and amplifiers. Formed in 2011, with a vision to make music gear affordable.” I like the sound of that! New technology coming out of a student collaboration has the makings for some pretty exciting developments. Take a ride on the net...

Outlaw Effects Five O’clock Fuzz Winner Recap

So it’s been a few weeks since the Outlaw Effects Five O’clock Fuzz giveaway ended. The winner of that pedal was Hunter S. of Bayonne, NJ. As with all our winners, we like to check in with them and see how they liked the pedal. We had a couple people question whether our winner was real because of its similarities to the name of a famous gonzo writer of the journalism persuasion.  But, we assure you that all our giveaways are...

New Builder: Yellowcake

We added a builder to the database recently that I just wanted to mention, because I’d like to get a little more information about them. The builder is Yellowcake and it appears they have one pedal currently on the market – the Furry Burrito. I like the sensibilities behind that name as it projects an image of something that is both fuzzy and yet somehow delicious.  The owner/builder of Yellowcake pedals is Ryan McCay....
