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!
