Handmade Guitar Pedal Effects:
"Scary Pedals"



Scary Pedals

Here at our little shop, we are proud to offer quality handmade guitar effects under the "Scary Pedals" brand! Great sounding gear does not have to cost you a weekly paycheck! Just because some have the word "boutique" attached to them, gives no company the right to charge you outrageous prices. in our opinion. Get a quality Effects pedal at human prices!

All of our true bypass items are handmade with our own PC boards, built with loving care and extensively tested for reliability and great tone! Many hours go into the creation of each one, no great machinery here spitting out 50 per hour, each one is built like I'm making it for my own! Our enclosures are professionally powder coated in a variety of colors creating a hard finish that is much tougher and simply better looking than conventional paint. Powder coating is the industry standard! Our glossy UV resistant lables are then applied with really cool graphics! In many cases you will have a choice of enclosure and knob color as well!


  • Effects are a must-have item in the assenal for most serious guitar players! Ranging from boost, overdrive, distortion, delay, flanger, chorus, etc.

  • Boost and overdrive are used to increase volume for leads as well as tone shaping crunch overdriving your amp into tone nirvana! Chorus and flangers make your signal lush and wide sounding. A chorus pedal can also mimic the sound of a 12 string instrument. A delay effect also widen the sound and thicken up lead tones to no end! Tremolo or rotary simulators also provide a lush and unique soundscape for your tone.

    When setting up your chain, it is almost always best to put an EQ first if you use one, boost, overdrive, or distortion second, a chorus, flanger etc. third, then reverb, echo, delay fourth. Of course this is always subject to your own personal taste. My own chain normally consist of a chromatic tuner followed by boost, overdrive, then chorus, tremolo, and finally delay.

    A minimum of a clean boost and overdrive is always in my pedalboard setup and should be in yours as well! What ever you choose, you can be assured that our products are well made and sound great! So get your brown sound on and enjoy your playing even more with a quality stompbox under foot!

    Many people ask "what is a boutique?" For the most part it is usually made by smaller companies or individuals and in smaller numbers. Also higher quality parts are normally used. In addition many are updated modifications of some of the more well known stompboxes out there!

    Dave's Guitar Gear also build custom Telecaster wiring harnesses, and fully loaded Telecaster control plates, all built with quality parts and Russian paper in oil capacitors. (PIO) In addition we offer mixing and mastering services for your band project, Pro work at indie band prices!
