  • Don’t have the words, can’t stay silent

    We have been reflecting on ways we can be allies, be supportive and bring about positive change. We will be listening, learning, finding creative ways to help. We will be supporting artists and organizations committed to equality and ending injustice.

    Resources to Support the Black Community

    We recently saw this 2015 video for “Cry No More.” Was transfixed the the entire time. A powerful performance.  The words Rhiannon Giddens  wrote on her YouTube page from 2015 are just as relevant today as they were then.

    “The massacre at the Emanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina, in June is just the latest in a string of racially charged events that have broken my heart. There are a lot of things to fix in this world, but history says if we don’t address this canker, centuries in the making, these things will continue to happen. No matter what level privilege you have, when the system is broken everybody loses. We all have to speak up when injustice happens. No matter what. And music is one of the best way I know to do so.”
    —Rhiannon Giddens

  • Family Photo


    Voltron and Friends 1Voltron and Friends 2


    Assembling the perfect pedal board is kind of like forming Voltron. You take these disparate elements and create a mighty, cat-robot defender of the galaxy. Or something like that.

    I was inspired by a recent Instagram post by S+K pedals. A collaboration with Electronic Audio Experiments wired up inside an etched enclosure depicting Voltron.

    I thought, hey! I have some S+K and some EAE and Voltron. So here is a little family photo of those guys and related builders, Fuzzrocious and Nerd Knuckle. Friends that often collaborate with John & Scot. All of whom we here at SBS have massive respect for.

    The effects pictured here are for sale (Sorry, but Mr. V. is not.). Send us an email for details.

  • Music in the Time of Quarantine

    Hey Everyone,

    Much like you, we are doing our best to stay home, stay safe, and keep positive.

    It has taken some time to figure how best to move forward. Is that even possible? Well, we gotta try.

    So much of what Stompbox Sonic does hinges on face-to-face consultations and community events with builders & musicians. So we need a new way, a more digital, less tangible way of doing that. So stay tuned. Before long we’ll have some online ways to bring the effects- lovin’-sound-craftin’ people together.

    In the meantime here are some resources if you need help or are looking to help:
