As in the case of my amplifiers (and indeed, virtually everything I do), I simply can't consider spending my precious hours on this earth repeating what someone else has already done. If I have nothing to add to a particular area of endeavor, I simply move on to something else.
Similarly, I design my effects pedals in order to produce a sound that I want to hear, and can't get anywhere else. As the late, great, Ricky Nelson said:
"Ya can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself."
I have a number of unique effects at various stages of R&D, so check back often. For now, I'm starting out with two of my most essential effects: a dynamic fuzz, and a real tube overdrive.
