cyber whatever sale


from now until 12/9 or i am sold out, i will have limited batches of etched fuck overdrives, minis (with either top or side-mounted jacks) and team awesome! fuzzmachines available. the fucks come in either blue/polished or a sort-of matte rust/sparkle finish, the TAFMs are either red/polished or the same matte rust/sparkle and the minis have the same black/polished finish for both top and side-mounted jacks, but are different sizes (125B enclosure for the top-mount, 1590B for the side-mount).

prices are at a slight discount off the regular price and they’re also acid-etched! (which is normally a premium) by the talented danny walters at DW etching. all orders will come with a free t-shirt (please specify size!) and a couple of super cool vinyl stickers (both b&w and color).

shipping is $7 for the US, $15 for canada and $30 for the rest of the world.
all pedals will be shipped by the end of the month, but i can’t make any guarantees on exact ship dates at this time – if you really need something by a certain date just let me know and i’ll try my hardest to make it happen.

i will also be holding an instagram giveaway at the end of the week – so go ahead and get that follow happening if you haven’t already.

happy holidays yall

new limited edition screenprinted minis with top-mounted jacks + sheponbass interview


i have minis available with a new 2-color screenprinted design and top-mounted jacks (in a slightly taller enclosure, 125B) for the same price as the old mini, $159. only 100 will be made with this design, so scoop one up before they’re all gone! also, i have just a few purple on bare aluminum team awesome! fuzzmachines available! use the paypal button below for either…

also, here’s a an interview i did for bassist Chris Shepperson’s blog, Shep On Bass. i discuss the genesis of the TAFM, process and design tweaking. give it a read if you have a few minutes!


new dealer day – effekt-boutique in germany!


i am very happy to announce that Effekt-Boutique in Ostfildern, Germany are now a retailer for smallsound/bigsound! now german customers can avoid their complicated customs process (and it seems to be rather complicated…) and support another small business in the process by buying smallsound/bigsound locally. hooray!

special printed TAFMs, minis & small run of F_ck Mountain (dual drive)


i have a limited number (only a handful of each!) of custom powdercoated and screenprinted minis & TAFMs available!

also, some FUCK MOUNTAINS! these are dual overdrives comprised of both a mini and (what-was-to-be) mountain range. the mountain range is voiced somewhat similarly to the mini, but with a different tone control (big muff based, with a mids toggle) and a different overall feel – they work marvelously together in series or by switching back and forth as complimentary low gain/high gain tones. i have a small number of either sanded aluminum with black screenprinted graphics or raw aluminum with a white screened background and black screened graphics.

• controls for the mini are standard: bass, treble, bias, gain, volume, bypass
• controls for the mountain range: pregain, gain, tone, volume, mids toggle, starve toggle, bypass
• global controls include an order toggle (mini>MR or MR>mini) and (if requested) a master bypass.
• top mounted in/out/power jacks.

i will be building/shipping these as orders come in but will ship 2 weeks from ordering at the latest – see paypal button below.


Moore, OK tornado relief & Discofreq 10 Year anniversary


i am donating two pedals for VERY different reasons this week.

first is a custom color (black sparkle powdercoat with screenprinted sea-green graphics) TAFM to relief for victims of the devastating tornado disaster in Moore, OK which has been put together by resident Oklahoma effects builders, Walrus Audio.

click through to their site for two ways to help out – by purchasing a $5 (or multiple) raffle ticket to win a massive pedal board featuring pedals from Barber, Blakemore Effects, Caroline Guitars, Diamond, Dr. Scientist, Dwarfcraft, Earthquaker Devices, Emerson Custom Guitars, Empress, JHS, MojoHand FX, Mr. Black, Pigtronix, SolidGoldFX, Strymon, Voodoo Labs, Walrus Audio and cables by Lava Cables OR by purchasing a very fine $20 T-Shirt. All of the proceeds will be going to the Oklahoma Red Cross.

second is a standard finish mini to the more light-hearted and personal 10-Year anniversary of Discofreq’s EffectsDatabase, an extremely thorough collection of information on almost every effects pedal you can think of. i have frequented the site for many, many years so i only felt it natural to give a little something back to Bart and all the hard work he has put into the site. there are almost 3 dozen builders donating pedals, so i won’t list them all here…
