 Nigel Touch Overdrive Pedal - true bypass. The Nigel is a very responsive overdrive that can go from warm semi-clean to full on classic rock crunch. It retains clarity and works well with complex chord shapes such as Maj7 chords (dime it and play a Maj7 chord and be surprised). The Nigel pedal is hand built by progressive rock guitarist Greg Lounsberry, (of the bands, Canvas and October Tree) one at a time. Greg uses point to point wiring and fish paper circuit boards using wiring techniques from 1950's guitar amps. The Nigel is a multi stage overdrive that uses FETs to simulate vacuum tubes and both Schottky, and NOS Germanium diodes in the clipping stage, driving a FET output amp that gets Creamy and FAT as it saturates. The package is finished off with custom Steam Punk Graphics by artist, Mark Hershberger, with Gold Speed Knobs over a copper color powder coated enclosure. This makes for a great classic rock pedal that never sounds brittle and looks as sweet as it sounds. It is already the overdrive of choice at Canvas Productions Studio (canvasproductions.net).

Now with DC in jack for Pedal board use!





Ace of Spaydes "MOSFET Overdrive"


  Now with DC in jack for Pedal board use!

The Ace of Spaydes was designed for Florida-based guitarist, Steve Spayde. It is a multi stage overdrive that uses FETs to simulate vacuum tubes and MosFets in the clipping stage, driving a final FET amp that gets Creamy and FAT as it saturates. Featuring custom Steam Punk Graphics by artist, Mark Hershberger, and Gold Speed Knobs over a translucent gold color powder coated enclosure. This makes for a great pedal for blues and jazz, and was nicknamed by one customer, "The Santana Pedal".







Organ Grinder "Organ Overdrive"


 "Roger Powell's Organ Grinder" was designed with, and for, Roger Powell of Fossil Poets, and Utopia. Roger describes it as the kind of "flabby" overdrive he normally can only get with a Leslie. He says it sounds "Incredible!" and is far superior to the overdrive built in to his clonewheel organ. This is the clonewheel accessory of choice for Hammond lovers! Electric piano players will love it too....

Update! At Roger's request, the Organ Grinder circuit is now true bypass.

It is hand built by progressive rock guitarist Greg Lounsberry, (of the bands, Canvas and October Tree) one at a time. Greg uses point to point wiring and fish paper circuit boards using wiring techniques from 1950's guitar amps.

The Organ Grinder is a multi stage overdrive that uses FETs to simulate vacuum tubes, and germanium diodes in the clipping stage. That feeds into the input stage of the final FET amp that gets FAT as it saturates.

The package is finished off with custom Steam Punk Graphics by artist, Mark Hershberger, with Gold Speed Knobs over a candy apple red powder coated enclosure.

If you play organ, electric piano, or synth, and are tired of using guitar pedals with their characteristic mid-range hump, and are looking for an overdrive with wide, flat frequency response designed specifically for keyboards, this is the pedal for you. This one can handle your bass notes.

Includes 9v DC jack.





Toy Robot "Low Gain Overdrive"


 The "Toy Robot" Low Gain Overdrive provides three stages of FET goodness with Germanium diode overdrive. The overall gain structure is moderate providing that "Just ready to break up" dynamic prized by blues and jazz players.






Rupert "Bass Overdrive Preamp"


 (Currently only available in Gold colored enclosure) The "Rupert" Bass Overdrive Preamp is like a Nigel for the Bass, providing a rich sounding tube-like bass sound. It makes a bass amp sound creamier, and is a very good preamp for direct recording.






Nigel Studio "Touch Overdrive" with Studio Preamp


The "Nigel Studio" is a Nigel pedal with the first stage preamp available in bypass mode (like the Rupert), allowing its use as a high quality preamp for direct recording. When the switch is engaged, it is a full-on Nigel pedal. It features parallel output jacks so one can feed a recording input for virtual amp use, and the other can feed a monitor amp for latency free recording. This is the pedal I am currently using in the studio for Canvas Productions.






A.10.U.8 ("Attenuate") Speaker Soak Simulator


This is a revolutionary product that can be used two different ways:

  1. 1.Place it in the serial FX loop of an amp. The preamp signal hits the input of this FET amplifier full-on, simulating the compression and harmonics of the output tubes. The volume knob is post-FET amp, and rolls off level to the output tubes. It is now OK to starve the output tubes because the FET amp has already performed their function. It allows the amp to achieve the "cranked up" tone at studio levels. Unlike a power-soak type speaker attenuator, it is not hard on tubes or output transformers.

  2. 2.When placed at the end of an FX chain on a pedal board, it warms up the signal, and does a great job of knocking the hard edge off of solid state amps.





Smilin' Jack "Fuzz Tone"


The Smilin' Jack pedal is a good ol' fashioned fuzz pedal. The design began as a Fuzz Face tribute, but since no Lounsberry pedal is quite complete without the requisite FET output saturation stage, it began to sing with a voice all it's own. There were a lot of King Crimson comparisons along the way. With Hershberger graphics, and Gold Speed Knobs over a yellow powder coated enclosure, this is a great fuzz pedal with a violin-like voice and sustain that goes on for days........

The Smilin' Jack Fuzz Tone is based on the classic Fuzz Face, but routes the sound through a FET amplifier to simulate the sound of a Fuzz Face running through a tube preamp. A lot of attention was paid to capacitor values to smooth out the sound. The idea was to take advantage of the stability of Silicon transistors, but recreate the smooth, fat sound of Germaniums.

Lounsberry Pedals
Alien Tech
Germanium Feedback Overdrive
Rumored to be reverse engineered from captured ALIEN TECHNOLOGY, the germanium feedback overdrive is AudioHipster’s first entry into the boutique guitar pedal world. Expect a Dynamic playing experience that will make you think you are playing through an  amp rather then a pedal. Doyen Keaton and Greg Lounsberry present the overdrive pedal that is out of this world!

Greg Lounsberry is the magical brain behind this freaking nuts of a pedal, you can dial in the right amount of amplifier overdriven harmonic feedback sustain that may change the way you play...or at least the way your guitar makes love to your amp.

I love this pedal. Thank You... Doyen
