From Montreal, Canada
Innovative and versatile effects pedals
Hailing from Montreal, Canada, creator, designer and builder Greg Djerrahian founded SolidGoldFX in 2006.
The brand’s goal is to offer a sonic experience like no other, by blending the warmth and feel of Greg’s favourite vintage effects with the clarity, response and tone expected from modern day electronics.
Wanting to push the limits of pedal design, Greg has developed innovative new features such as introducing tap tempo controllers to help you redefine the boundaries of your music. These boxes aren’t toys, but powerful tools designed to inspire and create art. SolidGoldFX pedals are individually handmade, using nothing but the finest parts available and are rigorously tested using live (which means real world and LOUD) amplifiers.
The results of years of testing, tweaking and always wanting better tone, more definition, less noise and creating versatile products is what makes SolidGoldFX a real special gem in the pedal category. From ripping fuzz to earth-shaking filters to secret-tonal-weapon utilities, all SolidGoldFX pedals are built entirely in their Montreal workshop and are individually tested, inspected and approved by Greg himself before making their way onto your pedalboard.
Whether it is one of the range of Fuzzes, Overdrive, Delay and Reverb or Modulation & Filter devices, there is sure to be a SolidGoldFX pedal that will fit your board and add a unique, yet inspirational quality to your music!

Home is where the fuzz is. That’s how the saying goes, right? Well, that’s definitely how it goes for the certified fuzz experts at SolidGoldFX who just keep finding new ways to make fuzz as fresh and exciting as the very day it was invented.
From perfectly refined and modernized Fuzz Face and Tonebender takes in the If 6 Was 9 and Rosie, to the absolutely crushing octa-fuzz tones of the 76 Fuzz (trust us when we say, this is the best octave fuzz ever made), the one-stomp solutions for legendary Hendrix or Zeppelin tones in the Spanish Castle and Communication Breakdown dual fuzz’ and all the way to their recent endeavors into the world of synth-sounds with their 76 Plus Octave Fuzz & Filter. Imperial MKII provides vintage Muff-style gated fuzzy goodness with impeccable modern day manners and adds cool retro looks. LYSIS MKII pushes the envelope even further with a polyphonic octave fuzz and a sweeping modulated synth filter.
Whether you want tried and true classic dirt tones or are looking for a futuristic fuzz device to truly push your creativity to new places, you’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for among SolidGoldFX’s stellar selection of fuzz devices.
Whether you’re a guitarist or bass player, SolidGoldFX is ready to meet your gritty needs with their elegant and versatile drive boxes.
The Zeta DLX and Beta DLX are dirt boxes designed for the discerning guitarists and bass players who require extreme tonal flexibility. Serving up a true tonal trifecta, these pedals act as both a preamp, drive and boost. Plus, with the ability to set the boost either pre or post dirt and with ample control of your frequency spectrums, both sophisticated devices are ready to push your tone over the edge. On the other hand, if you like to keep things super simple, then the Beta MKII delivers the great drive tone of its bigger brother, but in a much more compact package, making it easy to fit sweet crunchy bass drive tones into any setup.
Every musician needs a great foundational drive pedal and your sonic foundation will be rock steady with any of these great offerings from SolidGoldFX.
Modulation & Filters
SolidGoldFX create some of the most warm and musical modulation devices and filters in the business.
The Funk-Lite is an ultra-compact and intuitive envelope filter, giving you those instant fast funk vibes, as it delivers both classic quaky envelope filters as well as LFO-based sweeps for your psychedelic solo explorations.
While the latest otherworldly modulation device, the NU-33 Vinyl Engine has been masterfully spun and fine-tuned to provide lush warbly Chorus and Vibrato modulation, seasoned with stacks of lo-fi charm and switchable vinyl noise, crackle and pop, the Oblivion Quad Flanger boasts three modes and a whopping four individual offset modulating delay lines for massive swooshing tsunamis of ominous textures.
So, if you want to put some motion in your sonic ocean, then these beautiful modulation devices will definitely deliver.
Reverb & Delay
If you’re looking for ambience devices with a ridiculously inspiring and inviting vintage vibe, then SolidGoldFX has you covered.
The EM-III Multi-Head Octave Echo stands out as a the smallest, most powerful and by far the most versatile SolidGoldFX delay pedal to date, serving up unbelievably gooey and warm repeats, while its Warp and Glitch Feature, make it perfect for everything from warm analog-voiced echos, precise and modern delay, as well as experimental and futuristic sound designs. The Surf Rider III beautifully captures the classic splashy spring tones of vintage amps, and combines it with a switchable boost for when you really want your drippy lead lines to stand out. Finally, the Counter Current takes a completely different reverberating path, as it sends a lo-fi spring-like reverb into a drive circuit for oceans of cascading and crushing ambience.
So don’t be afraid to dip your tones in these ambient waters – your inspiration will thank you immediately!
