BUZZZ B-stock sale!

Posted

i have 12 slightly blemished/B-stock BUZZZes for immediate sale and shipping (by the end of the week) – they have some minor scuffs and scratches in the screenprint due to improper transfer/storage on my part. nothing too serious and definitely not noticeable when looking down at the pedal, only up close. $30 off the regular price = $170 + shipping ($7 US, $15 canada and $30 for the rest of the world)

read more about the BUZZZ here





don’t let the price alone entice you… here is a playlist with some SEXY DEMOS from the great juan alderete and from me using my trusty bass VI and jazzmaster.

additionally, i will have a booth with a loaded pedalboard and headphone amplifier at the philadelphia punk rock flea market at 461 N 9th st. on saturday, june 7 from 10am-5pm if you want to come by and say hey or try anything out in person. in-person discounts and small batch stuff will be there so make sure to stop by!

new dealer day – deluxe guitars in victoria, australia!

Posted

i am proud to announce that deluxe guitars in south melbourne, victoria is the first australian retailer to stock smallsound/bigsound pedals! they’re a great full-service shop offering a huge line of instruments, amps and pedals with a repair shop, rehearsal studios and even a comprehensive backline and equipment hire! damn.

hopefully they will also be a great place for australian folks to try out my pedals and save some bucks on shipping!
