Because I love creating stuff.

Because of the smell of a warm tube amp or a hot soldering iron. Because of chimey speakers and stacked drives. Because of opening boxes full of little parts that come in the mail. Because of a more buttery sound if I swap out that part. Because of seeing the powder coat flow when it reaches temp. Because circuits and pedals and tone. If none of that made you smile, then you best just stick with “because I love it”.

Oh, and also did I mention I need money to feed my gear habit?

Why do you make pedals in small runs of 3 or 6?

Choose your favorite answer, any of which might or might not be true:
