Timeline (by Justin Patry)
Well I don't know important dates so I'll try to make a timeline/summary:
Made first 10 pedals for Musictoyz, they sold out in 1 day! (5 Brown Rabbits and 5 Digilog Delays)
- Made 20 more for Musictoyz, they also sold out quickly.
- Picked up other dealers around the world!!!
- Got word that the boys in WILCO loved my stuff and I made several pedals for them as a result. This was mind blowing to me! someone actually liked my stuff!
- Parted ways with my original artist, Patrick Corrigan, and started to silkscreen 90% of our pedals. We still do very few handpainted versions.
- Came out with other models (Maharishi, 20XX boost (the nine), HiRAY, Ripple)
- 5 years later... Still here hopefully making people happy in guitarland!
