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. I’m no savoy market investor, but you don’t have to be a financial genius to understand that when something doubles in price – it has value. And when that thing is an effects pedal in a large and...

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...

The giveaway for the Celestial Effects Aries Beast Distortion is over and it’s time to pick the winner. This giveaway was a huge amount of fun. We met lots of folks emailing and asking us via social media about the pedal which is always awesome. The contest also gave us a change to dig deep into this cosmically named builder. On one day, we did a run down of the 12 pedals in their Zodiac line. On another day we brought you...

Aries Beast Distortion Review

This week Pedal Finder gives away an Aries Beast distortion from Celestial Effects and there is still time to enter, just check out this original blog post for all the details. Before we put a lid on the contest though, we thought we’d take a more in-depth look at the Beast itself. One of the joys of partnering with builders on giveaways is that we get to hook the pedal up and take it for a spin before we give it away to some...
