Spidola Germanium Fuzz
A fully voiced med/high gain fuzz fit for a heavy rocker from the 70s.
A vintage soviet-era Russian Germanium Transistor provides a wicked treble boost, while a bass drive works in parallel to flesh out the bottom end. Combined, they deliver a thick and meaty sound that can be as dark or as bright as you want, while never getting too shrill as a silicon fuzz is apt to do.
Set the amount of Push the stages get, and then use your guitar's volume control to clean up the fuzz as needed.
Hand-made with preimium and era-appropriate Carbon Composition resistors and red Panasonic Film Capacitors.

T-120 Videotape Echo
Inspired by the garbled audio that accompanies worn-out and poorly aged budget bin video tape, the T-120 Videotape Echo gives you exactly the type of sound that you're hearing in your head when you look at it.
Feed your guitar through the T-120, and the recorded playback will be the sound of low bandwidth tape being fed haphazardly through a magnetic read head by an uncalibrated, unbalanced feed mechanism.
No DSP Involved.

T-60 Analog Chorus/Vibrato
A lush all-analog signal path featuring a BBD is controlled and modulated by a meticulously crafted digital LFO & control system with features that set it apart from historical chorus units.
The robust BBD clock circuit is key to this pedal, allowing you to use the Lag knob to make the latency of the wet signal incredibly short, providing flange-like phasing, or longer, to get wide pitch swinging vibrato.
The finely tailored signal path is EQ'd to give you the most oxymoronically hi-fi lo-fi sound you could possibly ask for, and a stereo output lets you create a wide soundscape.
No DSP Involved.

112+ Drive Channel
The most versatile analog overdrive you've ever played.
On its own or stacked behind another pedal, the 112+ can do anything from low gain to high gain, and it can do it with feeling.
With an internal voltage boosted up to 34v, the 112+ runs hot and uses that headroom to full advantage.
A fully active 3-Band EQ allows unprecedented tone shaping capabilities.
The Voice Switch allows you to set how much bass is overdriven in the distortion stage, giving you 3 distinctly different flavours of overdrive.
Completely original design and flexible controls make the 112+ stand out from the crowd.

The Retro Harmonic
Stereo Analog Harmonic Tremolo
A fully stereo input/stereo output harmonic tremolo, utilizing a 100% analog signal path and 100% digital control, opening up an unprecedented range of possibilities for this glorious, criminally underrated effect.
Evenly matched preamps with plenty of gain are available on the 'Drive' Knob, allowing this to double as a full-stereo drive pedal - a setting which is fully accessible as an alternative to bypass when you disengage the effect.
Higher-order High/Low Pass filters designed from the ground up and tuned to perfection space the bass and treble bands far enough apart to allow wonderful warbly harmonic trem without cutting out any midrange.
The real magic, though, is in how the software in the digital brain manipulates the voltage-controlled elements of the signal path.
The phase of the bass and treble LFOs can be set to 0 if you'd like amplitude tremolo, 180 if you'd like harmonic tremolo, or anywhere in between. The same goes for the phase between the LFOs for the left and right channel, allowing you to play with panning however you like.
Syncopation is one of the reals treats of this pedal. Using this knob in conjunction with the harmonic phase control, you can any number of mezmerising polyrhythms that sound even more mind blowing when panned 180 degrees. The 10 syncopation options, shown as ratios on the control panel, let you set the treble channels to run faster than the bass channels, yet at a rate that causes them to line up regularly and begin the cycle over again.
More details to come.
