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)

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!
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!
Formerly the daily effects-centric news site What’s That Dude Play?, Gearphoria is a new quarterly e-magazine focused on builders and end-users of small shop/boutique pedals, amps and guitars. There is a nice write-up/review on the buzzz in the current issue!
juan was nice enough to invite me over to his studio when i was in california for winter NAMM and we filmed a nice demo of him going through each of my pedals. if you don’t already know who juan is, you’re missing out… he’s an incredibly killer bassist who has played with some amazing bands such as the mars volta, racer X, zavalaz, deltron 3030, big sir and more; plus he’s an incredibly friendly and open guy who is excited about and makes great conversation about music, gear and food.
