5 Pedal Builders You Should Know About [Rainger, Spaceman, Reeves, Pigdog, Tsakalis]

Published 17 Jul 2020

Welcome to the show. Contrary to folklore, Dan and I don’t spend our entire lives trying out new pedals. That means there are a whole plethora of smaller brands and makers out there about whom we know very little. This is a format we’re trying out in order to address that, featuring five makers who we think deserve more attention. Yes, you may well be intimately knowledgable about their wares, but not everyone will. You get the idea…
The five we have chose are listen below – enjoy the show!
