This blog series will be an insight into the prototyping and design of new pedals that come out of MI Effects. We wanted to share these processes with you as we find it to be one of the most interesting facets of being a pedal and amplifier company. Most pedal companies keep each pedal design and release a secret, but we thought the process and work that is involved in a new pedal design would be interesting for the gear geeks.
A caveat first: NOT ALL OF THESE DESIGNS WILL MAKE PRODUCTION.
For various reasons, so some of these ideas will be shelved, others will evolve into other projects. So please refrain from questions like “When will this be released?”, “Or can I buy the prototype?”. As much as we would love to have that information, it really depends on a whole constellation of factors, so any releases will come in good time. Please enjoy the read, and let us know if you would like to see this on your pedal board.
We’d love to hear your feedback along the way, by comments on each post, or via our Facebook page and Twitter. We hope that those interested in design will get some knowledge along the way, and those simply interested in MI Effects will get a sneak peek into what will be released in 2012.
Thanks for your support and see you on the comments page!
