About Us

The Business Classic Audio Effects is a licensed South Carolina business ran by me and my wife. The original idea of the roller pedal was never one that I planned to turn into a business but rather just an idea I had been playing around with for a few months. I began working on my first prototype in September of '14 and 7 months later had developed into a production ready unit. The business side of CAFx opened in January of '15 after seeing such a great response to some early prototypes that I posted on the internet. Four prototype versions later I finally arrived on the design that you see for sale on the site today.

The Passion for Music The love affair with guitar began about 15 years ago when I got my first acoustic. After years of lessons and practice, I finally have gotten to a point where I consider myself an advanced beginner. Today I am mainly a weekend P&W player.

The Background  I believe my love of guitar pedal building began in college while I was studying engineering. Something about being able to really dive into a circuit and understand how it worked was very cool to me. The first pedal I ever built was an EA Tremolo from GGG. I can't remember if I ever got it working but I was hooked. From then on, the obsession just grew. From kit building, to sourcing my own parts, to SMD building, to digital design, to contract circuit design to pedal production it has been a fun 8 years. Can't wait to see what the future holds!
