Title: Hello from the UK
Post by: Hello_sailor_effects on May 08, 2019, 05:18:26 PM
Hello, hope you are all well?

My names Joe, I run Hello Sailor Effects.

This is mainly a hobby at the moment but I'm hoping to take it further after I finish out my last 6 years in the Royal Navy, I've served 16 years so far.

I absolutely love guitar effects (no surprise there ha) and gear in general, I'm not a hugely intelligent builder by any means but I make up for that with more of passion and attention to detail in my pedals.

I'd love to get involved in this great forum.

Joe

Hey Joe (see what I did there).  ;)

Welcome to Guitarist Guild.   I did wonder how the name Hello Sailor came about, now it makes perfect sense.  Your pedals look interesting, are they all original ideas or based on existing effects out there?

I've thought about trying to build a pedal or two, but it would have to be from a kit, as my electronics knowledge isn't too good. 

Thanks for sharing.  And don't hesitate to post up any demos, or new releases to your range.

Hi Mick cant go wrong with a bit of Hendrix  :)

Most of my pedals are old designs taken further for example I add in a mini transformer to allow the vintage germanium transistor to be driven by other pedals

Some of the kits available today are fantastic, I'd advise anyone to try Jeds Peds they are great quality

Thanks mate much appreciated
