    Timeline (by Nate Garcia)

    • 1999 - seeing DIY pedals for the first time on a friend's pedal board. They were 3MS (now 4MS) pedals built into electrical junction boxes... I was enamored.

    • 2003 - built my first complete pedal. This was also my first hand-etched circuitboard. Tonepad version of the MXR Distortion+

    • 2007 - my first year of building for others. Shaun Reed of the band Constant Seas was a great supporter in those early years.

    • 2008 - With the encouragement of Dano "Beavis" Haught, I began building a licensed version of the Trotsky Drive.
