New Builder: Rawkworks

Sometimes I wonder how I go so long without running into a certain builder – especially when their aesthetic is so awesome it makes me want to open my wallet immediately to purchase everything they’ve produced. I know aesthetics should be the last thing you consider when looking for pedals to complete your tone, but as every restaurant owner knows – we eat with our eyes! Today my fancy was caught by Rawkworks, the...

They love doom and stoner music as well and with that love comes a want to get dirty and loud.

The Star Eruption Fuzz is a pedal that combines modified circuits...

Magnetic Effects: White Atom

It doesn’t seem like that long ago we were talking about the Magnetic Effects Solar Bender, their take on the famous Tonebender MK II circuit complete with NOS PNP germanium transistors and Reverse Polarity Circuit. That pedal was a bucket full of fuzz with lots of granular controller able to ebb in and out of controllable feedback easily. Now, they’ve released an update to their White Atom Fuzz they are simple calling the...
