Stompnorth Pedals - Boost Guitar Pedals

Stompnorth Pedals

Stompnorth founder Duncan MacKinnon describes his pedals as 'a labour of love'. Using highest quality components, the pedals are designed to keep your core tone intact, with minimal noise and maximum mojo.

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Stompnorth makes a small range of high quality guitar pedals. The Clipshear Getter Drive is the flagship pedal - a valve-based drive with silicon and germanium clipping - but perhaps the most distinctive pedal in the range is the Midgie Booster, which features real Outer Hebridean midgies collected by Duncan  placed within the power light, Very Jurassic Park!

STOMPNORTH Midgie Booster Overdrive

£180.00

Workhorse MOSFET Boost...

The Stompnorth Midgie Booster Overdrive is built around a MOSFET transistor, known for their amp-like feel and here offering over 20dB of boost.

With selectable silicon or germanium diode clipping, this is a serious workhorse pedal getting you from boosted cleans to vintage crunch.

Clipping

The Silicon mode gives a more aggressive bite with good response, while the Germanium mode gives a "saggier" feel with plenty of vintage mojo. Combined with the MOSFET stage, the clipping section gives this drive a multi-dimensional quality that needs to be heard to be believed.

The Midgie Booster Overdrive is handwired point-to-point and features high quality components, including Alpha pots and the large Jupiter capacitor which takes pride of place.

This is a superb, super-stackable pedal which works really well in tandem with other pedals. Oh, and the power indicator glows to showcase several of the finest Inner Hebrides midges, personally collected by Stompnorth founder, Duncan!

Features:

  • Flexible boost/overdrive pedal with silicon and germanium clipping
  • Volume, Gain, Overdrive & Boost toggle Controls
  • High quality components
  • Made in Scotland
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

Bringing Valve Power to Your Pedalboard!

Stompnorth's flagship pedal combines MOSFET transistor, valve, and silicon and germanium diodes to achieve a multitude of low to mid-gain tones.

Stompnorth founder Duncan MacKinnon designed the Clipshear Getter Drive to be an integral part of your rig, an "always on" pedal that enhances your core tone. It provides up to 21dB of boost that can push the input of your valve amp, with an addictive and characterful analogue character courtesy of the MOSFET.

Controls

The Gain control adjusts the amount of gain the MOSFET produces, which is then fed into the pre-amplification circuit of the valve. You can achieve deliciously organic overdrive - MOSFETs are known for their amp-like qualities - in combination with the Volume control.

The Valve control adds gain to the valve signal path, which produces an amazingly responsive and warm character ranging from subtle boost to sweet overdrive and flat-out saturation. Used in tandem with the Gain control, you can achieve tons of sustain and a thick overdrive sound.

The Si/Ge/Off toggle switch gives you two different flavours of diode clipping. The Silicon setting adds an aggressive, precise punch with plenty of sizzle, while the Germanium diode is quieter, much more spongy, and can achieve tons of saturation.

There's enough headroom in the Clipshear Getter Drive to experiment with rolling back your guitar's volume to further expand the range of available textures.

The Stompnorth Clipshear Getter Drive is handmade in Scotland from the highest quality components. It's the perfect pedal if you're after superb translation of your core tone for low to mid-gain purposes.

Features:

  • Valve drive with silicon and germanium diode clipping
  • Up to 21dB of gain
  • Highest quality components, including Jupiter capacitor
  • Gain, Volume, Valve, Si/Ge/Off controls
  • Handmade in Scotland
  • Power: 9V power adaptor (min 100mA), centre-negative (not included)

STOMPNORTH Bass Midgie Overdrive

£185.00

Every Bassist Needs A Drive Pedal!

The bass-tuned Stompnorth Bass Midgie Overdrive is in similar tonal territory to the Electro-Harmonix Bass Muff - but that's where the similarities end...

Its handwired point-to-point circuit is built around a single Darlington transistor and symmetrical silicon diodes. 

This is a great pedal to enhance your bass tone and get it growling. Use the toggle to switch between silicon diode clipping and "Fauzz" (faux fuzz derived from transistor feedback) to get your preferred flavour of drive tone.

The power indicator features several Inner Hebrides midges, personally collected by Stompnorth founder, Duncan! They won't bite, but this pedal will.

Features:

  • Handwired point-to-point bass overdrive
  • Made in Scotland
  • Select from silicon or 'fauzz' tones
  • Volume, Gain, OD & Si/Fauzz controls
  • Power: 9V centre-negative (not included)

STOMPNORTH Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner

£180.00

Silicon Fuzz Face with Extras...

Stompnorth's Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner is based on the classic silicon Fuzz Face circuit popularised by artists such as Jimi Hendrix and David Gilmour.

Built around expensive low-noise foil capacitors, this very useable fuzz takes the Fuzz Face circuit and beefs it up with some very welcome extra features.

A/B Toggle

The A/B toggle switches between bright and normal frequency response, enabling you to easily dial in a sound for either humbuckers or single-coils.

Bias

The Bias control enables you to adjust the response of the pedal, from a gated, dying battery character when turned anti-clockwise, to regular at around 12 'o'clock, and full sustain and body when turned clockwise.

If you love the Fuzz Face sound (and let's be honest, who doesn't?!), the Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner is the pedal for you.

Features:

  • Based on the silicon Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face
  • High quality, low-noise components
  • Additional features include Bias and tone response
  • Fuzz, Bias, Volume & A/B toggle Controls
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)
