Octa is a digital octave stompbox for both guitarists and bassists. Two octave voices blend with dry level control and polyphonic processing in the default mode, so playing a chord is no problem. There is an additional dirty mode which simulates the classic analog octave pedals, single note processing and a different tone. The pedal will be supplied boxed with instructions.

The Arion SCH-Z is a re-issue of the well respected Arion SCH-1 which was used by many famous guitarists as renown for its lush analogue chorus sounds with the added feature of a tone control. The re-issue Arion SCH-Z is no longer in production but I have managed to obtain 4 brand new pedals which I have modified so they perform very closely to the original Arion SCH-1 plus enhanced some of the other circuits. The re-issue version of the pedal has cloned delay chips and the tone control behaves nothing like the original. I have replaced the delay chips with the original Panasonic types plus fitted a delay line bias trimpot and completely re-worked the tone control circuit so all behaves as per the original pedal. I have modified the input buffer circuit for less tone sucking effects plus added protection against overload. The original/re-issue pedals drop the internal power supply voltage too much giving less headroom/more distortion, I have corrected this plus enhanced the reverse polarity protection. I have replaced the rather cheap looking control knobs with upgraded types plus fitted a blue status led. I did not want to true bypass the pedal as it does not really need it due to the buffer modification plus the stereo effect would no longer be functional. The result is a truly great sounding analogue chorus pedal lovely lush choral sounds and the tone control range really does enhance these. I only have 4 of these pedals so get one while you can, you will not be dissapointed. The pedal will be supplied in original box with owners instruction manual.

Good quality passive guitar volume pedal by Proel, made from tough plastic with a metal base plate covered with a none slip rubber pad.

Very usefull mini headphone amp with acoustic simulation for use with electric guitar, has controls for blend, tone and volume. There is an output for headphones and input for aux, the unit has its own internal rechargeable battery charged via USB port(lead included). When fully charged the internal battery lasts between 4-5 hours. This is a great little well made unit for silent practice the acoustic simulation can be mixed in with the dry signal from the guitar via the blend control. The aux input can be connected to an external audio source for backing track play along.

Analogue Octaver pedal by Beta Aivin similar to the Boss OC-2 except this pedal has a distortion function which can be used inconjunction with the one octave down mode. The two modes of operation are thus one/two octaves down and clean blend or one octave down with drive/level controls. The pedal is quite synthy sounding especially in the drive mode and may find use with bass guitar as well. The pedal is of good quality and housed in a metal case works of battery or 9 volts external dc. The pedal will be supplied boxed with re-printed generic instructions.


                                                          Cost £35.00 Plus £5.00 UK P&P (will ship internationally) 


Effective noise gate with controls for Attack, Decay, Threshold and unusally Level. The inclusion of the Level control gives the pedal a good degree of boost so signal losses in the effects chain can be compensated for or just use it as a clean booster with the threshold set to maximum. The pedal can also be set up to give envelope type shaping effects say a very slow attack/medium decay with a low threshold setting. A very unusual noise gate pedal good for experimenting with housed in a tough cast metal case.

The Seymour Duncan SFX-09 is a professional compressor the gain control element is a VCA (voltage-controlled amplifier) which offers transparent gain reduction, consistent ratio, and predictable attack/release curves due to the faster response when compared with other compression methods like light and photocell. But perhaps what makes this compressor so unique is the Double Back feature which offers the option to blend back some uncompressed signal to restore some of the dynamics and "feel" lost during compression.

There are three Double Back frequency options: "High" blends back top end only so sharp attack, and harmonics still come through. At low settings, tactile sensitivity is restored. Higher settings let you cut through the mix with amazing control. "Mid" blends back mid-range frequencies, perfect for fattening up your tone; and "Full" blends back the full frequency range to enrich overall dynamics.

The Double Back features a built-in, easy access battery door, a 100% analog signal path and true bypass.


Simply put, a compressor makes quiet passages louder and loud passages quieter. Most other compressors can get in the way of your guitar's natural transients and feel. Thanks to the innovative and unique Double Back feature and associated three-way EQ switch, the Double Back Compressor lets the original guitar signal leak back into the compressed tone for a natural performance like no other.

The Double Back can also increase the clean sustain of your guitar, and it does this with almost no extraneous noise or interference thanks to revolutionary VCA circuit topology. This is the cleanest, quietest and most expressive compressor around. This is an ex-display pedal just vey slight marks on the front panel hardly noticeable, will be supplied unboxed with no manual.

The Lava Box is not an ordinary MOSFET distortion/overdrive effect pedal. It actually reacts more like a great amp than a stompbox with the depth and dynamics that give well-made amps character.

When you think about the tones that defined so many of the true guitar heroes throughout history, they all really speak. They cut through. They say something. A huge part of that is in the rich midrange frequencies that the amplifiers of the day naturally produced. And, because those amps were typically cranked up to full volume, they were also incredibly dynamic, responding to different picking attacks and even subtle changes to the guitar's volume control.

The Lava Box brings that magic back with its broad array of midrange timbres and its amazing sensitivity to picking intensity and volume changes. One of coolest features is the six-position Rumble bass roll-off control. This rotary knob changes the sonic character of the Lava Box pedal's distortion for a huge range of tones, from bright and spanky to deep and warm. Whether you have the thinnest single-coil in the bridge of your guitar or the woolliest humbucker in the neck, there is a Rumble setting that's perfect for it.

Even at the highest gain settings, you can turn down your guitar's volume control and the Lava Box guitar pedal will clean up beautifully. Onstage, you can set the Lava Box for a loud lead tone and simply use your guitar's volume control to get your clean and crunch tones—all without switching channels or kicking in other effects. In the studio, you can explore the huge array of tones that are available with the intuitive controls, creating special-effect thin tones or spooky dark sounds that are perfect for layering and overdubs. This is an ex-display pedal just slight marks near the rumble switch not very noticeable, will be supplied unboxed with no manual.
