New Builder: Ant Craft

Helsinki, Finland is a fairly big coastal city with a rich history and plenty of attractions to see and a whole mess of activities to take part in. Recently, we discovered Ant Craft – who are stationed in Helsinki. These folks (or person?) have spent a great deal of time working up to their first pedal, the Camponotus. It’s not that their lazy, far from it. Instead, they’ve been experimenting with different...

New Builder: Arc Effects

EarthQuaker Devices: The Dunes

It was 2014 and the folks at Earthquaker Devices had done something they said they never would. They created an overdrive based on the TS808 – that classically copied circuit beloved by everyone. No one could say there weren’t enough clones of the TS808 on the market. No one could even say that there weren’t enough variants of the TS808 on the market. But, what you could say was that EarthQuaker hadn’t tried their hand at its own...

Summer NAMM 2015: EHX Silencer

If you are a fan of effects, then chances are good you actually play and instrument. And, if you play an instrument, chances are you aspire to play shows outside your living room/bedroom. And, since about 10 percent of all aspirations come true then that means that at least a few of you have dealt with the horrors of hums and static during a gig.
