This is a work in progress. We're striving to create a continually growing
and expanding music and gear related resource that will continue to grow and
expand as we continue to expand upon in. Watch it grow!
Here’s a list of stompbox related websites you can visit:
This, of course, is the first place you should visit.

This is where we'll be posting vintage effects pedal demo videos and other fun stuff!

Do-It-Yourself effects building is the biggest growing trend in the effects scene. Scores of musicians are wielding soldering irons to see if they can build their own, personalized stompbox. If you want to get in on the action, here are some links to help.
DIY Parts & Supplies:
Small Bear Electronics
Steve Daniels is the unsung hero of today’s DIY effects scene. He has created an entire business dedicated to supplying parts to people who want to build their own effects. There’s a great interview with Steve (perhaps the first and only one) in Analog Man's Guide To Vintage Effects.
Okay, so I wrote a book about effects. I guess that makes me the expert. But as far as what makes these things tick… well, I’m a musician, not an engineer. If you want that kind of info, I highly recommend the sites listed below.
