Don’t just take my word for it.

Apart from the demos where you can get a good idea yourself, check out the customer reviews at the bottom of each page as well as the Artist page. I’m proud and happy to have my stomp boxes played by some ace guitar players and experts in sound and function.

Custom guitar effects made with highest attention to detail.

Hand made and designed by me in Nelson, New Zealand.
Each pedal fully tested before shipping.

Classics tweaked and updated, original guitar effects to stand out.

I am a guitarist myself and developed the effects with input from other fellow musicians.

Practical features, road tested stomp boxes and made to sound great.

True bypass relay switching system, top mounted jacks to save space on pedal board.

“To me, Stephan is proof that builders here in New Zealand are producing instruments that are on par with the most
sought-after (and most expensive!) names in the industry.
The Phase Four has the versatility and depth of sound I’ve been looking for – it does everything I needed from a Small Stone or Phase 90 incredibly well, but has so much more scope to go beyond conventional phaser sounds into wilder musical territory.”
