New Site Selling Inexpensive Guitar Pedals & Accessories
« on: August 18, 2014, 10:44:28 AM »
Hey everyone, my name's Mark and I run Spartan Music a new site which sells low cost guitar pedals and accessories. The aim of the site is to create a store where guitarists can find great bargains as an alternative to the big brand names. Currently we sell pedal brands such as Biyang and ENO as well as our own branded gear. I hope the site will especially appeal to beginner and intermediate guitarists, and even experienced players who just want to find a great bargain or reliable backup. The site is located at http://spartanmusic.co.uk/ so please check it out :)

I started the business because as a beginner I wanted to experiment with new gear, but didn't want to spend a fortune. So I bought a few of the pedal brands mentioned above. As I became more experienced, I thought they still sound great. That's even after Id used some of the big pedal brands or boutique pedals. In terms of value they were incredible. But there didn't seem to be a UK based store who specialised in selling just low cost pedals and accessories. So I thought I'd do just that!

While there isn't a massive range of products in stock yet due to the age of the business and obvious financial restrictions, the selection is gradually increasing. I hope to add other low cost guitar pedal brands in the near future, also there are some of our own brand guitar straps on the way within the next few months. Will update this thread when they're here. They essentially are cool looking straps which are actually comfortable (don't have that plastic feel!) but are available for 10.

If you know a good low cost pedal brand but can't find a reliable UK supplier, reply to this thread and I'll look into stocking them in the future. Alternatively you can email me at contact[member=264]SpartanMusic[/member].co.uk

Thanks for reading!

Great looking site. Good luck with the business.

I'm not in the UK, but wonder if you've looked into the JOYO pedal range. I have a few of them and bought them on eBay as they were super-affordable. They're pretty good value in my opinion. Could be good for you.

I'm not affiliated with JOYO by the way :)

Thanks guys :)

Yeah JOYO are definitely on my "to sell" list. The reason I've not got them yet is that they're readily available from other websites in the UK, where as I've not seen many Biyang and ENO sellers. They'll probably be the next brand I stock though because of their popularity.

I was thinking about Moen pedals too, although I've not had any experience with them.

Good planning I say :) Best of luck!

Just an update to say that the guitar straps I mentioned are now in stock. They're available for 9.99 on the site. So they're a inexpensive strap, but are still comfortable and look pretty cool too (well I think so anyway!). Great for guitarists on a budget.

Here they are:



You can see them in more detail here.

Hey guys,

Happy to say that we've added Joyo pedals to our range:

http://spartanmusic.co.uk/collections/joyo-guitar-pedals

I'm working with the official Joyo UK distributor and am gradually building up the range of Joyo pedals in stock. Will have some of the new Ironman pedals soon too.

All pedals have the full warranty, and are dispatched quickly from the UK. So you'll not face any extra customs charges (which is sometimes a problem when buying from overseas on eBay etc.)

If you'd like a certain Joyo pedal which isn't in stock just let me know!

Here's a 5% discount which everyone on Guitarist Guild is welcome to use (works for all products):

5OFF

Apply the code on the second page of the standard checkout process.

If you use paypal enter the code after paypal redirects you back to the site.

Nice! I love the Joyo pedals (I have many). That Blue Rain Overdrive is a cool looking pedal. I might have to look into that one.

Just an update on some new products which some of you may find interesting because, as far as I know, they're not available in the UK yet.

The first is the new range of ENO pedals which I think will be at NAMM. They're called the Xtreme series, a bit of an upgrade over the first generation. Here is one of them (chorus):



Also got a mini tube amp head in stock. The Wangs VT-H1 (yes I know "Wangs" very funny :p). It's made by the sister company of Biyang guitar pedals. Here it is:



Both have very limited stock but will reorder if they're popular.

The Wangs VT-H1 looks cool. What does it retail for?

I sell it for 110 with delivery included. I believe it's meant to be a copy of the ZVex Nano which retails at 350ish.

Very cool. You'll have to make a video with it. It certainly looks like a fun little head unit.

Yeah I'll be looking to do that soon. My amp is having some reliability problems at the moment so hopefully I can make a video when I've got a new one :)

The Wangs VT-H1 looks neat.  I'd be interested to see your video clip of it in action. 

Remember you can add your own albums and some of your product shots and vids in the media system.  Media button can be found in main menu.

It needs testing.  :D

Got an offer which is on Amazon at the moment - may keep it open for a while. Basically it's a guitar string cleaner for 99p (usually retails for 7-8). You get 6 off the usual price which was the cheapest anyway.

To get it go to http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00VYO36OS and use the code Y9WW2OFM during the checkout process.

Note you may still need to pay postage, but I *think* if you add the string cleaner to your basket (6.99) then add 3.01 worth of other stuff, you may be able to get the free delivery, you can then use the code to get the 6 off.

Any honest reviews of the cleaner after you've tried it out would be much appreciated (although not required for the offer).



In the Spartan Music store we've got a few more strap designs which follow our low cost high value philosophy:

This one is 14:

Any questions / problems with the offer and let me know!
