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.

A Zodiac Of Effects

Everybody by now should know that Pedal Finder and Celestial Effects has teamed up to giveaway an Aries Beast Distortion. With three easy ways to enter there’s no reason not to submit an entry for this versatile pedal with a depth of controls and a subtle range of tone. Having played this pedal (review coming) it’s no exaggeration to say you can dial up or dial down multiple degrees of dirt, squee and chug. In fact, the...
