Thanks for visiting my website, I’m Markus and hope you find something you really dig here. I build classic Drive and Fuzz pedals, but in a very different way , some of the circuits you may already know such as FuzzFace and Coloursound Fuzz, my take on these classics is slightly different. Most models are built to order. Constructed Point to Point to a very very exacting standard, and enclosed in a beautiful, hand acid etched die cast enclosure.
This process imparts a unique patina on your pedal depending on subtle atmospheric conditions. I produce all the artwork designs myself, then screen print a mask onto the enclosure and then dip them in acid to them etch them using processes dating back to the dawn of print making. I combine this with modern high quality components and NOS transistors, the tone and connection the player feels is a thing to behold. My pedals come with a Lifetime Guarantee, and free UK shipping or flat rate £25 shipping rate for worldwide orders. Hopefully, as you are already on the site, you have an idea of just whats going down here and are thirsty for more.
01 JAN 2021
Only custom colour pedals are available on back order of 28 days. All other models will be made in small batches and put up for sale and immediate shipping on dates advised via social media, email subscribers and on the relevent pages here. The first five dates are listed below.
I care about how these things sound as much as I care about how they look. Why have the hottest looking car on the block that won’t even get to the shops? The detail I apply to building these pedals, is matched only by the detail I’ve applied to tweaking the circuit and getting the sound in my head out of the pedal, before I even think about deciding to sell them.
All my pedals are made to order, I know that GAS is an impatient +)(^%)! but these pedals take time and are seriously worth the wait.
It’s just me, this is a one man oppo, I design the graphics, etch, paint and drill the enclosures, then populate them with the point to point goodness. If you want a mass produced pedal the choice in the market is bewildering. If you want something genuinely boutique, you have found it. (I use the ‘B’ word very carefully, as its been hijacked and well … I’m claiming it back). I genuinely believe that functional objects should be beautiful too, we all deserve ‘nice things’ every now and again right?
So what should you expect when you buy a ReevesElectro pedal? On the outside the enclosures are acid etched with a gunmetal finish and I’m saying this myself, look the dogs. Finished with a simple satin finish to neutralise the etching, Every etch comes out subtly different, so you always will get a unique patina on your pedal. Sometimes my wife drops patchouli oil in the calico bags we send them out in, as shes a bit of a hippie and well … I like the smell. On the inside, my attention to detail is all encompassing and its frankly slightly worrying how much I love the look of a nice crisp right-angled buss wire … and after doing this for 20 years the joy has never worn off. I guess that’s your win then.
