Celebrate 5 Years!

SBS Aviary

 

Since 2009 portable music shop STOMPBOX SONIC has provided musicians and sound artists a way to harness the creativity within. Its specialty is effects pedals, also known as stompboxes, most unique and handmade by small companies from across the country, but it also deals in vintage guitars, amplifiers and related accessories. On Friday, November 7, a special evening of solo performances will be held at Aviary in Jamaica Plain to celebrate its five years in business featuring:

Audrey Harrer, Harp
Andrew Abrahamson (Royal Wedding), Guitar
David Michael Curry (Empty House Cooperative), Viola
Adam Brilla (Broken River Prophet), Guitar
Michael Hutcherson (Owlfood, Your Reflection), Electric Piano and Synthesizers

These five local musicians are adept sonic travelers and melodic experimenters who deftly incorporate electronic effects to subtly enhance an idea or to create pieces that simply would not exist otherwise in a strictly acoustic environment. They have also been integral to the development and success of Stompbox Sonic. Please join us from 8-11 P.M. on November 7 for an evening of sound exploration.

Bene-Fuzz, SBS edition

Nerd Knuckle Effects_SBS_Bene Fuzz

Brad from Nerd Knuckle Effects made a batch of limited edition, custom color pedals just for Stompbox Sonic. The purple/gold sparkle finish was inspired by our beloved J Mascis Jazzzmaster.

Based on the IC version of the Big Muff and tweaked until it covered a HUGE range of tones. Between the CONTOUR and TONE controls, this pedal can get fat n’ fuzzy and thin n’ bite-y! Works great on guitar, bass, keys, or anything else that requires some FUZZ!

Each enclosure is acid etched and re-painted. Handmade in Boston, MA


Baba Yaga, SBS edition

Nerd Knuckle Effects_SBS_Baba Yaga

Brad from Nerd Knuckle Effects made a batch of limited edition, custom color pedals just for Stompbox Sonic. The purple/gold sparkle finish was inspired by our beloved J Mascis Jazzzmaster.

The Baba Yaga features NOS low gain Russian germanium transistors and a designed after a Tone Bender Mkiii circuit. After a few tweaks, Brad created a pedal that ranges from a surprisingly nice overdrive to full on FUZZ. Sounds great on bass and guitar. Please note: if you’re looking for the classic Tone Bender sound, this puppy’s a bit different – but in a rad way!
