Wounded Paw Effects is owned and run by Preston Sims in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Timeline (by Preston Sims)
early 2007 - started building a few pedals from available schematics
summer 2007 - built some custom pedals for friends based on existing models
December 2007 - the Attack Goat Bass Fuzz version 1 is released, our first big design and successful retail model via our own online store.
April 2008 - a few Wounded Paw pedals including the Attack Goat are available in a physical store in Toronto, Paul's Boutique and, shortly after, at the online distributor Axe And You Shall Receive. Sales and feedback are both pretty good.
