I build pedals under the brand Monarch Pedals. Started during lockdown with something official after building clones and one offs for years.

It's our own circuits too, not clones of clones. The line up is pretty small. 3 drives in varying flavours, 1 absolute nuke of a fuzz, and 1 delay on which you can distort the repeats for this glitchy broken ambience which if you set the knobs right is quite beautiful.

+1 for not doing clones, I know lots of people want clones but that is just ripping off IP.


so about my cabs.... they are at least less square than the originals and usually a few mm oversize. Though recently one was undersized.

I didn't see pepers pedals on the list. The guy is damn good. Grabbed a Fulltone OCD clone and some dark gloomy fudge fuzz from him and was impressed.

Magnetic Field Pedals, Magnetogain pedal - finally fixed the foot switch. Man this thing is awesome into the Princeton. Switches control a mid scoop, and an extra gain stage.

Whoever this person was, they were very keen to protect their IP, and also, everything was serial number matched...even the brown bag it came in had the same serial no. This was one of his first....he had better graphics etc later. But gone now. Anyone know of him/them?

Yep - white goop over the circuit with a printed plastic insert with the serial etc on top, visible once the back is off. Tis a freaky little beast this one.

One of the guys from the Datsuns builds pedals under the Magnetic Effects moniker but is I believe doing it from the UK???
