Fake Pedals

Transforming weird and recycled objects into guitar effects and music instruments.
Unprofessional but artistic pedal effects I put together many electronic components to create a circuit. Than I put it into a weird or unusual enclosures. Usually it takes 1 or 5 days to complete the process.

Side story I am a musician, a passion that I have been cultivating for years. This project was born out of the desire to learn more about how musical instruments work, especially electronic ones and in particular effects for guitar and similar. When I clean up the house I find a lot of objects that I no longer use and I finally found a way to use them. A good way to tidy up the house and get a working and fun product! Since I was a child I liked to experiment with cables, batteries and light bulbs, see how a radio was made inside it, unscrew screws to find out what was inside and now the two things have come together in a single project!
