We started on 21/05/21 and we have been officially live for seven month today. It wasn’t the best time for lifting this passion into a business. Most of the time we couldn’t see each other in person and had to deal with things online, but anyways …
We want to thank all of you who helped us out, send us honest feedback, had conversations with us about crafting DIY gear, expressed interest in collabs and making demos, bought our devices, let us create custom devices for you, shared our devices on social media paired with warm words, and last but not least our suppliers who backed us in this unstable time with the high quality parts we need to build our stuff. You all made it possible that we can go on in the next year.
After these seven month we are still at the starting point and are really looking forward to what’s to come in 2022. So keep taking care of each other, show solidary with people in need, smash fascism, and support your local scene.
See you next year — hugs and kisses! TH/FX NOISEDEVICES, Kevin & Niels.
PS: We put the next device we are releasing already in the post — maybe you can spot it.
OUT NOW — an analogue guitar stack simulator which has the overdrive characteristics of a classic British style doom amp. The shape section can be set variabely so you can achieve the sound of diverse 4×12 cab models. Use the PreAmp and the shape section combined or the PreAmp alone in combination with your effect chain through your interface to record with your computer. Or as a classic overdrive into your clean amp or straight through your effects loop. The icing on the cake is the ability to switch the signal directly to your headphones which makes you independent from your interface while jamming.
These two custom built »FATALIST« have been commissioned by Hendric from PERSES. Based on a well known diy business card circuit, we gave them more low end and some sweet Soviet NOS germanium diodes for a warm clipping stage. To top it off, we added a one knob Swedish death metal equalizer to go from warm to mayhem in only one small turn. The second foot switch activates an active blend to mix in your clean guitar signal or every other effect you want to mix with your »FATALIST« sound. As a bonus it works also as a buffer to freshen up the signal in your effect chain. Hendric told us: »The pedals sound really great! We have already tested them intensively in our rehearsal space — very, very cool! We will definitely recommend you! Everything worked out perfectly, thank you very much!« Thank you for your kind words, dear Hendric! If you want to be as happy with your gear as Hendric is, get in touch with us.
This custom built »BOOSTED PIGEON« has gone to Daniel from AHAB. It is an original LM308 powered R*T circuit as near as possible to the 70’s original. You can also choose between harsh LED clipping and the LOUD! lift off setting via switch. With the optional booster you have the ability to drive it even harder — set to max the booster itself blends massive dirt into the signal. We have only four LM308s left in stock and every »BOOSTED PIGEON« will have an individual etched enclosure. So hit us up if interested.
Check out this short O))) demo of our friend’s Ercü MOOR board featuring our super clean black boxed custom Booster/LM308 R*T clone … working title »THE BOOSTED PIGEON« — in best company with Ground FX, Line 6, ZCAT Pedals, Lehle & TC Electronic.
Finally. While the next projects are already on our workbench, we have some nasty pedalboard essentials for you as a starter. SPUTNIKSHOCK — two effects in one box. The closest you can get to the Russian original doom fuzz in combination either with a spuring classic clean boost or a shaping analog octave up. Its blend knob allows to dial the ocatve in as much as you like. CIRKELSÅG — we tried to get as close as possible to the orginal distortion classic you all know and love. Using NOS transistors and three ICs to give it a gnarly sound. In this edition strictly limited to three pieces. MACKERMELTER — our friend Moonn Electronics asked us to do something cool with his PATRIARCHY MELTER PCB — so this is the result. This overdrive is strictly limited to three pieces in this edition and the majority of the income will be donated to women’s shelters in Hamburg — no means no, fuck sexist shit, smash patriarchy! In addition to the devices that we gradually offer in our SHOP, we are also always open for custom builds and interesting projects — get in CONTACT. Thank you for your support and sharing the love for nerdy and heavy noise gear!
On 21/5/21 our shop opens! While working on the next big thing, we will have some gnarly basics for you as a starter: CIRKELSÅG — our take on the true orginal distortion classic you all know and love. MACKERMELTER — a collaboration with our friend Moonn Electronics and his unreleased Patriarchy Melter overdrive. SPUTNIKSHOCK — two effects in one box — the closest you can get to the original russian doom fuzz paired with either optional boost or octave up. All handcrafted with highest quality parts in individually etched enclosures in strictly limited quantities. Stay tuned for updates and help us to fund some cool & heavy future projects by telling your gear nerd friends. Thank you!
Not for sale: NOISE KILLS FASCISTS — a drone synthesizer with three square wave oscillators and one low frequenzy oscillator which can be used as a three or four step sequencer. It goes directly into an Orange CR120 (dirty channel) and a closed 2×12 Celestion bass speaker cab. Built with the awesome Quantum Defrakulator MK2 PCB by Parasit Studio in a roughly etched JJ aluminium enclosure with a clear message. See the full Hi8 demo video here:
This is a protoype of a combined guitar stack simulator for your home recordings. In this case the PreAmp simulates the overdrive characteristics of a Rockerverb. The CabSim can be set variabely so you can achieve the sound of diverse cab models. Use the PreAmp and the CabSim combined or the PreAmp alone in combination with your effect chain through your interface to record with your computer or as a classic overdrive into your clean amp. We are planning on offering more amp models in the future — also a footswitch version with a headphone output. A demo will follow. Contact us if interested.
