Since I started playing I’ve had a passion for pedals. From early on I’ve used them as a foundation for my overall tone. In 2008 I was able to start a business selling boutique effects from small one man shops. While running Step Up Guitars I developed several great relationships with builders. I learned invaluable lessons during that time on what it takes to make high quality great sounding pedals. In June 2012 I started Stephen Douglas Design.
The goal of Stephen Douglas Design is and always will be to provide great tone without compromising quality.
You can expect service above and beyond every time. All pedals have a lifetime warranty, whether you’re the original owner or not. The best lesson I learned in my time working for someone else in the industry is this: Companies focus too heavily on the bottom line and forget why they started in the first place. With me you will find no spin, no hype. I’m always here to answer your questions as openly and honestly as possible and if I can’t meet your needs I will do my best to refer you to someone who can. I firmly believe that standing behind your products and meeting customer needs creates long term relationships. Those relationships will ultimately grow your business, or if neglected will sink it. My promise is to never forget how valuable you are as a customer and to continually meet your needs in any reasonable way possible.
Build times are currently 1-2 weeks.
