New Builders 2016

I can’t believe we are already half way through the first month of 2016. I feel like I was just drinking champagne a few nights ago in celebration of the new year. My point is, time flies and in the next 350 days Pedal Finder wants to fly with it. We have goals for 2016 that include beefing up our database with builders new and old, talking about and cataloging the latest pedals as well as those from ages past and meeting all...

Dr. No RoadRunner Octave Fuzz Wah Flying Machina

It’s crazy the ripple effects both large and small, created by acts of terrorism. The tragic events in Paris this last month not only effected the lives of Parisians, but those of us all over the world. You may have known someone close to the event or you may do business with suppliers abroad. Either way, the senseless violence that took place that night is still being felt weeks after. Such is the case with Dr. No and their new...

There is a tone that folks refer to as ‘Direct in Distortion’. It’s the kind of crazy that happens when you plug an electric guitar straight into a mixing board with little regard for the controls. The resulting distortion is unique in many ways and is the tone most attributed to the raucous guitar on “Revolution 1” by the Beatles. It’s a tight wound, crackly sound that expertly cradles itself somewhere between...
