Today we celebrate our 1st anniversary! Again, we want to say THANK YOU TO EVERYONE 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 still unstable time with the high quality parts we need to build our stuff.
Considering how many great pedal builders and companies are out there, we are very happy about every person who likes what we do. We really appreciate your support — we don’t take it for granted!
After these twelve month we are still at the starting point and are really looking forward to what’s to come.
The »BAIKAL« is a hybrid monophonic desktop synthesizer that offers the best of both analog and digital worlds. At the moment this is a one of a kind for sale, but if there is interest, we will consider releasing a small series of it — hit us up!
It is designed in two halves — the main circuit board is all digital, generating various sound sources, mixing and treatment options, envelopes, LFOs, and a 16-step sequencer and arpeggiator. It is equipped with an 16-line by 2-character LCD display, an encoder pot to navigate through parameters/pages shown on the display, four pots to modify the synthesis parameters, and six push buttons to cycle between groups of related pages, to switch between the synthesis pages and the sequencer/system pages, and to load and recall presets.
The all analog LP2 filter plus delay board forms the second half of the BAIKAL. It combines a raw OTA-C 2-pole filter with a classic lo-fi delay. It contains the voltage-controlled filter and amplifier, and has the ability to treat external audio.
We had the pleasure to develop, design, and build this special Geiger counter imitating device named RITA’S CRACKED POINTE SHOE for THE RITA.
»Noise generator custom designed to replicate the recent THE RITA Richard III and W.I.S.P. recordings which were all otherwise constructed via pre-recorded source sounds and bias heavy fuzz pedals. Beautiful work by TH/FX NOISEDEVICES.« — THE RITA
It can be used as a handheld device, has one killswitch, and one push button to control the speed of the Geiger counter sound. 100% handmade, best metal parts, no cheap plastics, unique design, etched enclosure.
KING RICHARD III by THE RITA coming soon from FOUL PREY.
We built another »BOOSTED PIGEON« for Andi from Nuremberg. 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 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.
