About Stompbox Sonic

The spark of inspiration starts with the click of a pedal

STOMPBOX SONIC provides musicians with an extensive tonal palette for auditory exploration. Specializing in effects pedals (aka “stompboxes”) built by companies large and small, some locally crafted, some collected from around the world. Our goal is to ignite the creative spark and help you navigate all those switches and blinking lights to bring your music to life.

Since 2009 guitarist, songwriter, and noise maker Adam Brilla has been working with sound based artists. Using his drive for exploration and years of experience to help others discover the sound they are after. Missing that “hands-on” approach that Youtube demos alone can’t deliver, fostering an inclusive community that chain stores and online retailers are not equipped to provide, STOMPBOX SONIC will work with you, to find the right effect(s) to fit your project.

So, how does this work?

Our consultations start at $30 per hour. Explore up to 7 different pedals. Rates vary depending on time, travel, and effects. To get started send us an email or give a call. Tell us a bit about your current rig (instrument, amp, effects, etc.), describe your ideal sound and what effects you are interested in.
