Fredric Effects is a handmade boutique pedal manufacturer based in North London that specialises in making rare, vintage and outright insane reproductions of some of the best loved pedals of yesteryear, available to customers at modest, non-boutique prices. Owned by Tim and Stacey, the two guitarists of London alt rock band The Sailplanes, this dynamic duo focus on creating the highest quality vintage effect stompboxes with some inspired modern enhancements.
Handmade individually or in batches, Tim is constantly tinkering away to keep up with ever-increasing demand, as well as looking to the future with plenty of awesome ideas for new models (which are frequently teased on their social media pages). The company even offer to make custom batches of pedals for bands, labels and shops on request!
The pedals themselves boast Alpha footswitches and Alpha pots on each pedal, with Cliff jack sockets all working together to provide superior longevity and signal transmission. The custom made PCB enclosures are designed to be seriously heavy duty, yet compact and pedalboard friendly, typically no bigger than your average MXR stompbox. The pedals are topped off with charming original design prints, quirky model names and a professional powder coating to ensure the most enduring finish possible. As you can tell, every aspect of Fredric Effects pedals are designed and crafted with the utmost care and passion.
