Alter Ego Effectors Damnation distortion pedal

Postby Capari-san » Tue Jul 05, 2011 10:51 pm

Hey guys,

I just got the first batch of pedals for my new company Alter Ego Effectors. It's called Damnation and it's a nasty, old school, crunchy sounding distortion pedal. It's also a limited edition of 1692 pedals (1692 was the year that The Salem Witch Trials were held in Salem, Massachusetts, Colonial pre- U.S.A.) As some of you may know, I've been working with the Artec company out of South Korea for a few years now, and this pedal is actually based on one of their existing pedal designs. I basically got the rights to the pedal and gave it my own paint job. I think the end result came out very well and am pleased with it. I'm just a huge guitar pedal fan and wanted to do something a little crazy. So anyways, check it out when you have the chance. I ship Worldwide. I have some available on ebay as well. This Damnation limited edition pedal is available only from my website or 9V-DV ebay store. It's not available in any stores period.

Please click my links below for more info :D

Thanks!
Steve

We all hang high 20 innocents, first thing that popped in my head when you mentioned the Salem Witch Hunt, and I quite enjoyed the story by Arthur Miller and the history behind it.

Anyway sounds great in the youtube vid of yours and hope to see more pedals being produced in the future.

Thank you. I know the subject matter is dark, but i've tried my best to treat it with respect. The subject is of course, common in the world of Heavy Metal, but I think that sometimes people forget that stories of Witch hunts are not just campfire/fantasy folklore...these things really happened, in many countries, for many centuries. If you were mentally ill, a homeless person or were just seen "acting weird" back in those times, by the wrong person, you might be accused of being a Witch. And unfortunately, very, very, bad things happened to those people...more often than not.

Music and toys were also considered the "Devil's Playthings" back in these Puritan, Colonial societies. Completely forbidden. Tributes come in many forms, i guess. I just couldn't get the idea out of my head and had to make this pedal.

Again, I am a little crazy...but so be it.

are there any mods to the artec circuit, or is it just aesthetics?
regardless, i dig the artec stuff and really like the artwork/theme.

Thanks. No mods were done to the circuitry. That's one of the main reasons why I call the company Alter Ego. It's like a limited edition "evil twin" of a pedal that already exists.

And done. Please can you arrange one handsigned with a gold or silver pen? it's going to get some maximum studio use on the next album ;-)

Hey Mate, maybe add a thread to the buy and sell?

Amazingly priced limited item, I expect a few forumites might be interested in supporting.

I added a thread over there, too. I need all the help I can get. No real advertising budget for this project.

Thanks to all of the forum guys here that bought one of these Damnation pedals. I've shipped a few of them down to AU and i'm sure this forum has had much to do with it. Thanks!
