    I heard that he owns a pedal business, but don't know which one. I'd like to connect up what he posts with what he builds.

    Don't want to get all mushy, but he seems like an interesting guy, and is clear and authoritative in his technical discussions.

    Great contributor to the forum. Super knowledgeable and helpful. He’s a Rat guy which makes him alright in my book!
    I had no idea he owned a pedal venture...... Dammit, he must make a rat, I mean, right? Gassing... Runs to computer....

    I’m NOT saying this guy is this way but having a pedal business can mean your assembling clone pedals in your bedroom in your spare time and isn’t necessarily a grand operation
    (Im just commenting on how people start to pay more attention when it’s called a business whether it’s guitars, pedals or what have you)

    With that said I’ve bought some pretty cool pedals from guys that built them on their spare time and they look perfectly professional and I’ve bought “brand” pedals that are less than stellar

    Is this a forum member we are talking about?
    More power to him if he’s trying to compete in the ridiculously crowded world of today’s pedal market

    His graphics suggest that he might also be a Tone Bender guy.

    YouTube “listening trials” suggest that I might be a Tone Bender guy too.

    He's a forum member who is very generous in sharing his knowledge of pedals and pedal construction. I've been very grateful for his opinions many times.

    I keep looking at his RAW preamp

    Whenever 11 Gauge makes a post I feel like I've learned some factually accurate information and/or recieved a rock solid foundation opinion.

    Iv'e got two of Keith's pedals. The 72 degrees and the Evelyn Mk2. Both fantastic pedals but the Evelyn
    Mk2 ended my constant buying of distortion pedals. Both have been on my board for a long time.

    He also has fantastic easy mods instructions for existing pedals with sound bite samples. A great asset to the guitar community.

    11 Gauge is a 'TDPRI National Treasure' for us guitar players

    Very generous with his pedal/amp knowledge, as well as his ability to communicate. He's got depth!

    Plus he built be ( while back) a hell of a Fuzz pedal!

    His “Outlaw” mod for the DS-1 is superb. If you ever had an idea of what a DS-1 should sound like, but were disappointed when you got the real deal, his “Outlaw” mod will give you exactly what you want. I keep thinking I need another distortion but after a few years of trying pedals out, nothing stands up to my “Outlaw” DS-1. If Boss ever does a Waza Craft DS-1, the custom switch should be the “Outlaw” mod. I’ve tried the Keeley mods, this beats them easily, and it was only like 7 or 8 components to switch. Thanks 11 gauge!
