Next new design out - Blast! - Booster/Overdrive/Tremolo/Swell!

Here are a few sneak preview pictures of my next new design to be released. It's a boost/overdrive pedal with expression pedal input (For what I will explain later!). At low gain it's high input impedence makes the Blast! ideal for driving long cables and setups, increase the gain slightly and you have nice clean boost, furthur increase the gain and you start to introduce slight clipping to the wave form which gives you a lovely "full" overdrive tone.

Another aspect of the design is on the inside of the pedal - it offers a socketed capacitor which can be swaped and changed to give you your required bass response (The Blast! will be supplied with 5 extra capacitors for you to experiement with!) so that you can use the Blast! as a full frequency boost or you can cut out the bass frequencies and use it as a mid and treble boost or even just as a treble boost.

Now, I will explain the inclusion of an expression pedal input. Within the next month I will be releasing a new range of "Modulator" controlers - a sequencer, a LFO and an envelope follower. When you connect any one of these controllers to the Blast! you have yourself a whole range of new sounds available to you. Connect the sequencer to the Blast! for sequenced tremolo effects, the LFO for more standard tremolo or the envelope follower for violin sounding volume swells :-) It's one hell of a pedal!

Waterfall prototype unit for sale!

Right, the production design is ready. The only difference between the prototype and the production units is the PCB layout - which doesn't affect the sound in any way, shape or form.

This is the unit that is pictured on my site and it was the unit which was used to record sound samples with - an overall great unit... It's unlike any overdrive currently out there, it's range of versatility and tone is second to none.

I'm offering it at a discounted price of £80 - that includes free shipping within the UK :) I don't really know why the discount, but - I feel it would be wrong to charge the same for a unit that has been slightly used, at least 10 guitarists have had there foot on it! (Don't worry, I made them take their shoes off!)

If you would like to purchase this unit please contact me via the "contact" page on my site here:

Get it before it's gone, you defiantly will not be disappointed!

New Project Online - The Microdrive...

There's a new project online over at my main website. It's the "Microdrive" - a cool little overdrive circuit that sounds killer. It's got a new control too - a Bass/Presence knob, I've never seen one like it implemented in an opamp based overdrive!

You can check it out on my "extras" page here:

Waterfall Overdrive Released!

At last. Here it is - a completely new approach to the design and construction of overdrive pedals! Instead of just working on a fixed frequency band like every other overdrive and distortion out there the Waterfall allows you to create your own unique sound by blending in just the right amount of treble, mids and bass which are all dealt with by their own dedicated overdrive circuit. Separate controls allow you to dial in just the right amount of gain onto each section so you can have any combination of clean boost and overdrive you like! Clean highs with overdriven mids and a touch of low end? Overdriven top end and clean mids? Perfectly balanced overdrive? Easy with the Waterfall!

Oh, and check out the paint job:

Yummy! For more info and sound samples get your backside here: and visit the Waterfall page!

Complete change of direction!

It's been a while... I've spent the last month or so setting up a vision I had a while back - Audigoa FX. Hopefully a new and fresh company in the stompbox market. The new site will be up tomorrow alongside the first pedal to be released - The Waterfall Overdrive. Top secret until then :-)

The Battle Weapon Delay and all the modulators will be released very soon. I have a few design ideas I need to integrate with the modulators. It's all going along, a bit slower than I would like (Parts suppliers???) , but it's still going. I suppose in the end it will lend itself to an even better product!
